Kungl Krigsvetenskaps­akademien grundades 1796 av general­löjtnanten, friherre Gustaf Wilhelm af Tibell.
Akademien ska främja vetenskaper av bety­delse för fädernes­landets försvar samt följa och bevaka forsk­ning och utveck­ling av bety­delse för rikets säkerhet och försvar.
Akademiens vilja är att, som en oberoende institution, bidra till och delta i försvars- och säkerhetsdebatten.
Tibellska fonden är öppen för att stödja Akademiens verk­samhet som ett veten­skapligt instrument inom säkerhets- och försvars­området.

It may be too late to save the INF Treaty, Brookings Senior Fellow, Ambassador Steven Pifer stated recently. “From bases in western Russia, nuclear-armed Russian SSC-8 GLCMs could target Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Rome, Athens, Ankara, and even Paris and London”, he wrote and suggested that Washington “should seek to raise the political heat on the Kremlin by making the missile an issue between Russia and the countries that the missile will threaten”.

The U.S. government is expected to formulate its position regarding this issue soon. “An American decision to withdraw from the treaty, known as the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or I.N.F., would be disastrous”, The New York Times observed correctly on April 3, 2017.

The current turmoil in world affairs is not chaos, but the combined result of pendulum-swings in the realm of ideas, old grudges, and the very material matter of military superiority.

10 or 15 years ago many people in the West thought that history was over and Eternal Peace had broken out.[2] Since the West and the liberal market economies had won the Cold War, and furthermore demonstrated their total military superiority in the Gulf war, the risk of major war was behind us. The world had become unipolar and optimism reigned supreme – nobody would dare to challenge the only remaining superpower, or the wider Western community. Like Superman, he would hold the villains in check, until they mended their ways and became useful members of the community. [läs mer…]
