Correction: Uncle Sam wants your money unless you are among the country’s largest U.S. corporations (e.g., GE, Microsoft, IBM, Exxon, Chevron). As reported in that radical rag, the Wall Street Journal, 60 of those large corporations “parked a total of $166 billion offshore last year” shielding anywhere from 40 percent to 100%…Continue

Here is a lecture I held at the World Peace Academy in Basel, Switzerland. I show here some pf my photos from my Iran trip, I outline why the present Western policies on Iran are counterproductive and, third, what must be done instead. It's only a hint - so much can be done to both prevent a looming war and to build trust.
I'd be happy to receive your comments and for your sharing it throughout your system.…
What you mostly hear in the Western mainstream media is extremely biased.
This newTFF PressInfo 1-2013 outlines why a) what you hear is basically one-sided, demonizing and missed the relevant factors and the wider regional apsects - and b) what should be done instead. Because, if the present US-EU-NATO policy is maintained for long, it is bound to lead to war - whether intended or not.…

Ban the bombs…all of them.
Nuclear weapons: The United States is the only nation in the world that has dropped atomic weapons onto a civilian population. Right now it has a stockpile of about 5,000 nuclear weapons, many of which can be launched within 15 minutes.
August 6 is the second anniversary of EngagingPeace.com and the 67th anniversary of the destruction of Hiroshima and much of its population by an atomic bomb.

New on TFF's new blog...
I'm pleased to alert you to a new comment on what increasingly looks to me as a build-up to yet another terrible unnecessary war. I argue that the Iran issue is not about nuclear weapons, that is only stage-setting. There is a larger drama in the theatre that is about to take fire - and it is the giant global change of forces and the…Continue

From the start of 2012 the spotlight on Iran and for good reason. Today the entire region is now on tenterhooks for the next move, with US, Iranian and Gulf armies on the highest war alert. Earlier the main scenario was that Israel would make an preventive limited air strike to Iran's nuclear facilities, now it seems that U.S is going to war with…Continue
Ex: Jonathan Power. Subject: Iran’s bomb will not be the last. Date: November 8th. 2011. The panic button on Iran is being pressed again. A report by the UN’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), suggests that Iran has taken more significant steps towards developing a nuclear weapon. At the same time the warnings from Israel are coming thick and fast, reminding us that if necessary Israel will bomb Iran’s nuclear research facilities. All this is grist for the mill…Continue
