Lost peace and fake news

By Jan Oberg

Proud to join “Middle East With Naskah Zada” at her program in New York and talking about the reasons that peace has become so ‘unpopular’.

Touching also upon international law, the new Cold War and the increasing U.S. involvement in Syria.

What foreign policy if the US had no weapons?

Just a thought…

Like we use Islamism – why not USism

War with Iran is probably our best option – The Washington Post
By Joshua Muravchik – one of the extremist neo-cons influencing U.S. foreign policy.

Hardly one argument backed up by facts here. The professor advocates a series of violations of international law. He thinks it is fine to kill people and cause regime change.

Two simple points: Why does Washington Post publish such crap? Answer: Only because it is 100% politics and propaganda and 0 academic. Qaulity is no criteria anymore; it is politically correct within the narrow circles that edit this newspaper.

Secondly, academics who support US foreign policy – domestically and around the world – these year should come out and say whether they support or distance themselves from semi-fascist views such as these.

Like we use Islamism (which is a nasty term that links the religion to terrorism – and that is of course the intention – we should use USism about stuff like this. It has as little to do with the best traditions of American politics as Islamic State has to do with Islam.
