Julian Assange: Criminal or Benefactor?

See TFF’s recommended reading about Assange under the article. By Richard Falk April 15, 2019 I suppose it is of interest that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have found something to agree about – the criminal indictment of Julian Assange.  Trump is acutely vulnerable to the exposure of truth and Clinton blames her electoral defeat […]

Stop the ongoing U.S. economic terrorism against Iran and help its people!

Stop the ongoing U.S. economic terrorism against Iran and help its people!

By Jan Oberg April 15, 2019 You have certainly not heard much about this in the West. And it didn’t get a fraction of the media attention (and none of the hundreds of millions of Euro pledges by the perversely rich) that the Notre Dame fire did. However, if disastrous floods had hit 28 out […]

Denmark’s PM admires a killing soldier’s simplistic view of good and evil

By Jan Oberg April 11, 2019 It’s Friday, April 5, 2019, at 9 PM. An entertaining talk show, “Skavlan”.

NATO at 70: An unlawful organisation with serious psychological problems

By Jan Oberg April 3, 2019 The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, NATO, celebrated its 70th Anniversary on April 4, 2019. Some of us don’t see anything worth celebrating about an incredibly expensive, dangerous and harmful alliance which should have been closed down exactly 30 years ago. Why 30 years ago?

US leadership approval in decline everywhere

Not so Germany, China and Russia By Jan Oberg March 27, 2019 Like the above diagram, it looks dark. For the US. Perhaps that’s the reason you have not seen it on the front pages of the Western mainstream press? Not only does this remarkable Gallup survey – made in the US – tell that […]

Why the Kim-Trump Summit was a – predictable – fiasco

Why the Kim-Trump Summit was a – predictable – fiasco

By Jan Oberg February 28, 2019 Peace can never be achieved this way a) The issue is about peace, not only nuclear weapons. The US has not been willing to sign a peace agreement after all these years. After some kind of peace process and treaty has been achieved, you can turn to the specific […]
