Jan Oberg Comment A US war game/scenario being reported by The Intercept is pretty revealing for the lack of even the slightest re-thinking of what the Global War On Terror (GWOT) is really all about. The US military’s game is about violence-for-violence, tit-for-tat. The main result from this – anti-intellectual – attitude and policy is that there are about 80 […]
It’s time – long ago – to establish an International Tribunal/Commission on the Entire International War In Syria. Jan Oberg Comment You should be sick and tired of blame game around selected events and misuse of international law in Syria. I am! Process instead the entire war and give justice and reconciliation to the Syrian people who have suffered incredibly. […]
Why is the UN still so important – in spite of having had its Charter violated repeatedly during the last 25 years? Why should we not – cynically – side with the cynical and powerful countries that want to undermine and marginalise the world’s finest organisation with the most Gandhian-like document ever signed by governments? What is the real UN and what does its Charter really say? Here I try to cover some of the answers in this 6 min video produced as Facebook Live on October 24, 2017.
Here is the background article. Funnily, or perhaps not so strange, there is some denial of this story too. Perhaps it wasn’t intended that it should end up in the public domain? And here my comments to this ill-considered escalation.
With his speech today – half an hour ago – U.S. President Trump has taken a huge step into uncharted territories. (Here on video). One that implies a 60-75% risk of leading to a US attack on Iran. Behind him stands the hardline militarists whom he has himself appointed. Secondly, neo-conservative individuals and think tanks who have brought the world only a series of failed wars and unspeakable human misery since the invasion of Afghanistan. Third, the Military-Industrial-Media-Academic Complex, MIMAC, that is outside real democratic control and pushes relentlessly for ever-increasing armament and wars and serves the public all kinds of weird, fake images of what threatens the US. Further, pro-Israeli and pro-Saudi lobby organisations and extremely wealthy individuals who buy political influence and thereby destroy the very foundations of democracy and free opinion formation. • Against these numerically tiny elites stand virtually the rest of the world, including NATO allies and the EU.
