Mr. Pompeo’s or civilisation’s clock?

By Jan Oberg August 13, 2019 With due respect, Mr. Pompeo, civilisation’s clock should be ticking for what I allow myself to consider inhuman, unfair and tension-creating policies such as those you conduct.

Distance yourself from US Iran policies or be responsible for the next catastrophe in the Middle East

May 20, 2019 By Jan Oberg Remember President Trump’s tweet and accompanying statements by the Trump administration officials concerning Iran – as reported here by CNN on May 19, 2019.
