Jan Oberg: The Occident is now militarising itself to death for a second time

May others avoid that fate… Jan Oberg January 26, 2023 The first Cold War played out between the East and the Western Occident and the East lost with the demise of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. Both built – more or less faithfully – on Western mechanical thinking, one on Marx and other […]

Richard Wolff: The Economics of the Ukraine War

January 24, 2023 Give yourself 38 min, and you’ll understand how extremely self-destructive the NATO/EU world’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been and why all the assumption it made was wrong. Professor Emeritus of Economics (University of Massachusetts) and founder of Democracy at Work, Richard Wolff, talks with brilliant clarity about the economic […]

Jan Oberg at RT CrossTalk about NATO’s increased military supplies to Ukraine

Three experts on warfare, weapons and underlying conflicts – and even some views on peace-making – after NATO foreign ministers’ summit in Bucharest. December 1, 2022 Today I participated in CrossTalk, edited and performed by Peter Lavelle on RT, formerly Russia Today. It was a delightful preparation process that made clear what it would be […]

Jan Oberg in China Daily: Abolish NATO and build peace instead

Jan Oberg in China Daily: Abolish NATO and build peace instead

Jan Oberg November 18, 2022 This was published as an Op-Ed in today’s China Daily with the title “NATO shouldn’t be a bloc on road to peace.” While most organisations are evaluated and reformed as time goes by, NATO isn’t. It has become sacrosanct and criticism of its operations silenced. In Western media, it is […]

Jan Oberg 2016: “Ukraine as the border of NATO Expansion”

Jan Oberg November 3, 2022 Everything Ukraine has been predicted. Warnings about trying to get Ukraine into NATO tumbled down, not the least by leading US experts on Russia. They also said that Russia was not – could not be – a threat unless made into one. In all modesty, I said it too 6 […]

Forthcoming: TFF Live Streaming and Video Channel updated

Jan Oberg November 1, 2022 Why video and streaming? Western culture has become more and more image- and less text-oriented – particularly the type of longer, analytical texts to which TFF as a scholarly-based research and public education foundation has always produced. In 2003 when I returned from fact-finding missions in Iraq, I was surprised […]

Jan Oberg: The EU and NATO lie – Gorbachev was promised that NATO would not expand “one inch”

Jan Oberg: The EU and NATO lie – Gorbachev was promised that NATO would not expand “one inch”

Jan Oberg October 19, 2022 You should ask yourself, ask friends, others and decision-makers in the West why the type of important news and conversations like the one I have here – including on nuclear abolition – is possible on Russia’s RT (and explicitly appreciated, watch the end) but not possible in the Western mainstream […]

Jan Oberg: The 2022 NATO Nobel Human Rights Prize

Jan Oberg: The 2022 NATO Nobel Human Rights Prize

The Nobel Committee should include a member of the US or another NATO country – alternatively, it should be transferred to State Department or NATO.
