Since enmity with Russia is not in the interest…

Vicestatsminister och utbildningsminister Jan Björklund är medförfattare till en Brännpunkt-artikel 7 augusti som argumenterar för att Sverige bör bli NATO-medlem. Artikeln är inkompetent och vilseledande av följande skäl: 1) Ukraine som huvudargument vittnar om bristande kunskap om nuläget - Ukraine-krisen startades av NATO/USA och EU, inte av Ryssland. 2) Man kan bara undra varför demokratierna har…

CNNs journalistic peace versus informed peace!

CNN headline, August 1, 2014 With this headline CNN conveys the idea that peace = when direct violence stops (for a while).
