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 […]

Richard Rubenstein: The New Turn in Ukraine. Putin’s War Becomes Biden’s War

Richard Rubenstein: The New Turn in Ukraine. Putin’s War Becomes Biden’s War

Richard E. Rubenstein May 17, 2022 Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, it was fair to call the ensuing conflict “Putin’s war.” True, the U.S. and Europe could probably have avoided the invasion by calling a halt to NATO expansion and negotiating seriously with the Russians about key security issues. True, U.S. […]

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 […]

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

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. Ryssland skapade – och är ansvarigt för – kriget. Det finns inget våld som inte […]

The US is counting on Putin to signal before using nukes

The US is counting on Putin to signal before using nukes

Hats off to Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines for her Senate May 10, 2022, testimony on the likelihood of nuclear war with Russia, even though parts of it were surreal, as we discuss below. From an intelligence perspective, she told it like it is. Not only that; she took the quintessential nuclear-use question a […]

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

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 Sword & the Cross at Albright’s Funeral

Diplomatic Security Service conducts a training at the National Cathedral in Washington in 2020. (U.S. State Department) Sam Husseini May 2, 2022 The late U.S. secretary of state’s association with Biden and the Clintons can be seen as a war-making, mutually absolving clique, writes Sam Husseini. It’s fitting that U.S. President Joe Biden and Bill and former […]

Truth is out: NATO wants to become even more superior and cripple and cancel Russia through Ukraine

Truth is out: NATO wants to become even more superior and cripple and cancel Russia through Ukraine

Step-by-step NATO’s conflict with Russia is becoming more clear – past, present and future. Ukraine was always unimportant to the West except as a pawn in its game. The conflict and the war will increasingly acquire their own unstoppable dynamics towards devastation of Europe, if not the world. Unless somebody now stops to think: Where […]

Trita Parsi: Why non-Western countries tend to see Russia’s war very, very differently

Trita Parsi: Why non-Western countries tend to see Russia’s war very, very differently

Trita Parsi April 18, 2022 The West appears blind to its own hypocrisy and narrow interests in calling for a rules-based order. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been nothing short of brilliant in his outreach to Western audiences. The overwhelming Western support for Ukraine is due not only to the brutality of Russia’s illegal invasion, but also to […]
