Tonight on Hemispheres the Middle East Dialogues with Ibrahim Kazerooni and Rob Prince. This evening Ibrahim and Rob will discuss cracks in U.S. hegemony in the Middle East. Although it is not about to collapse, U.S. global hegemony is waning. The days when a U.S. president (or his representative) could get on the phone and dictate how to resolve a regional conflict appears to be ending. The uni-polar world post the collapse of the Soviet Union is cracking and U.S. control to dictate what happens in the Middle East is changing. A bipolar world is coming into being and it’s local allies in the Middle East – Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey are becoming somewhat more independent as a result. Despite the apparent strength, financial or military, of the United States, it finds its hands tied more and more. What’s the deal? What’s going on? Hear Kazerooni and Prince discuss how the global crisis is influencing Middle East developments in Yemen, Iraq and much more. That’s the Middle East Dialogues on Hemispheres; Tuesday, November 23, 2021 at 6pm.
