Jan Oberg: Listen to Kissinger and CIA’s Burns and compare with populist platitudes

Jan Oberg: Listen to Kissinger and CIA’s Burns and compare with populist platitudes

Jan Oberg May 19, 2022 This short article aims to merely illustrate – not prove – the difference between security political intellectualism and ignorance. It does not focus on peace – theories, ideas, concept or policies – simply because none of the personalities appearing below are in the business of peace. By means of some […]

Jan Oberg on RT about Finland, Sweden and NATO

May 16, 2022 Sunday the 15th, 2022, I was asked to comment from a peace research point of view on Finland and Sweden’s moves to become full members of NATO. I gladly do so since it is a long time since I commented on anything on RT. For those who think that it is surprising […]

Es ist töricht für Finnland und Schweden, der NATO beizutreten und sowohl die wirklichen Ursachen als auch die Folgen zu ignorieren

Es ist töricht für Finnland und Schweden, der NATO beizutreten und  sowohl die wirklichen Ursachen als auch die Folgen zu ignorieren

Jan Öberg 14.05.2022 The English versionThe Swedish versionThis German version is an unedited Google translation Hier ist, was der Westen intellektuell nicht sehen kann – inmitten seiner grenzenlos selbstgerechten, militaristischen Stimmung: Die Expansionspolitik der NATO hat den Konflikt geschaffen – und ist dafür verantwortlich .

Det är dåraktigt av Sverige och Finland att gå med i NATO og ignorera både de verkliga orsakerna och konsekvenserna

Jan Oberg 14 maj, 2022 Engelska versionen av denna finns här Detta är vad västvärlden intellektuellt sett – mitt i sin gränslöst självrättfärdiga, militaristiska sinnesstämning – inte förmår att se: Natos expansionspolitik skapade – och är ansvarig för – konflikten.

The US is counting on Putin to signal before using nukes

It is foolish for Finland and Sweden to join NATO and ignore both the real causes and consequences

Jan Oberg May 12, 2022 Here’s what the West is intellectually unable – in the midst of its boundlessly self-righteous, militarist mood to see: NATO’s expansion policy created – and is responsible for – the conflict. Russia created – and is responsible for – the war. There exists no violence which is not rooted in […]

The US adds US$ 40 military billion to Ukraine – For what if not maximum harm to us all?

Gordon Dumoulin TFF Associate May 11, 2022 There is only one winner… Mind-boggling and horrifying as it is, the US House just passed a USD 40 billion military aid package yesterday to buttress Ukraine. USD 40 billion! Does anyone have an idea what humanity could do with such a huge amount of capital flowing into the […]

Richard Falk: Toward a Peoples Tribunal on the Ukraine Wars

Richard Falk, TFF Associate May 3, 2022 The time has come for civil society initiatives to counter the disastrous global confrontation that is now endangering the world, and indeed even species survival prospects, in the pursuit of geopolitical goals by the United States disguised somewhat with media complicity that continues to convey the impression that […]
