The War Of The Worlds (US-NATO Versus China-Russia) as Played Out In Ukraine: First Interview: The Global Dimension: Seeing The Forest Through The Trees. Wednesday, May 25, 2022 @ 8 pm Mountain States Time

May 23, 2022

This is a first of three – possibly four live videos on the crisis in Ukraine – call it what you will, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Russian Special Military Operation.. The media and government frenzy – as a major component of the hybrid warfare unfolding over the Russian military operation in Ukraine has never been more pronounced, if not shrill. The very intensity of the propaganda war has resulted in two, possibly more, competing narratives as to the nature of this conflict, who is involved, who is “winning.” We, Kazerooni and Prince, have decided it is high time for us to add our understanding of the conflict – what it is about, in a number of live interviews.

This first video to be aired as noted above in a few days – on Wednesday, May 25 @ 8 pm Mountain States Time will deal with the more global dimension of this situation, that is to say the emerging and now relatively obvious growing class – economic, political and military – between what might be called U.S. unipolarity (U.S. global hegemony) and the emergence of a formation which frankly, has existed for a number of years – a multi-polar world in which none of the major players have primacy or hegemony over one another.

It is this global aspect we want to probe, explore, and in so doing, place the Russian military presence in Ukraine within its broader framework. As inow envisioned, the program will last about a half an hour more or less.

Other programs over the next week will look at the regional dimension of the crisis and one or two programs on the historical development of it within Ukraine itself.

We hope that you will find it useful.

Ibrahim Kazerooni just recently retired as Imam of the Islamic Center of North America – the largest mosque on the continent located in Dearborn Michigan just outside of Detroit. The Detroit-Dearborn area ,  has the largest Islamic-Arab Community in North America. Kazerooni, originally from a family of religious scholars from Najav, Iraq received a joint PhD from the University of Denver’s Korbel School of International Studies and the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado.

Rob Prince retired Senior Lecturer of International Studies at the University of Denver’s Korbel School of International Studies after 23 years at that institution. For the past 12 years he and Kazerooni have been monthly political commentators on Middle East affairs on Boulder, Colorado’s public radio station – KGNU Boulder. The program is called “Hemispheres: The Middle East Dialogues” produced by Jim Nelson.

    Your commentary in the May 21 article is eminently “on point”. Might I recommend today’s (Wednesday) Counterpunch article by John V. Walsh re: the NY Times’ latest stance on the Ukraine debacle, which if accurate is surprising to me.

    I’m happy that there’s emphasis being made on the Biden Admin. foreign policy being orchestrated by the Neocons. How dismal that many are dying at the whims of the Project for a New American Century, the Feiths, Wolfowitzes, Boltons, Kagens and Newlands.
