… the TFF PressInfos you may have missed



Dear new and old subscriber


Many have asked where they can find our PressInfos later on or when they can’t find that mail. 


So please find below the permanent links to them all.


We appreciate your interest in peace and other alternatives. 


It’s OK if you don’t agree with all their contents. The worst would be if you reacted with indifference or felt that our analyses lacked originality and knowledge.


TFF wasn’t set up to repeat conventional ‘wisdom’ but to promote the – still sadly – unconventional UN Charter norm that peace shall be established by peaceful means. That is the world’s commitment to non-violence first and violence only as a last resort (Chapter 7). 


The foundation has the complete freedom to take up any issue and treat in any way we feel truthful. We strongly believe that that is a quality in today’s world where quantity rules.


Let me take the opportunity to thank our new subscribers – many more than we could ever have hoped. And thanks for the hundreds of mails we have received from people who appreciate our analyses and celebrate diversity.


Global, free and honest dialogue and sharing is a major step towards the more peaceful world that I believe you want too.


And now the links…Ukraine, Kosovo, Crimea, Sweden, the Middle East and Iran, world (dis)order, how to analyse a conflict, peace proposals, psycho politics, U.S. empire decline, Syria, Egypt and the ever constructive perspective of non-violence.

One thing that distinguishes good from deficient research is its capacity to predict correctly. We welcome you to judge how good or how deficient our analyses were back in time.


Remember we are on all the social media in the top menu here – easy to connect, follow – and like.
