With President Obama’s announcement that the United States will begin arming the Syrian rebels, many might think that the bloody civil war might soon come to an end.

But Glenn Beck argued on his television show Tuesday that the suffering is far from over, and that both Europe and the United States may face dire implications.

Beck began by showing current photos from the Middle East, saying progressives on both sides of the aisle who supported the “Arab Spring” are responsible.

“Who killed 98,000 people in [Syria] since the Arab Spring?” he demanded. “Who’s responsible? The president of the United States, the Center for American Progress, Samantha Power, Bill Kristol, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, all of the progressives that said let’s open up this Jeffersonian can of worms.”

The issue of where to put the Syrian rebels is of particular importance, Beck said.  Many of them are desperately poor, having been forced to leave everything they own.

Do the refugees go to Europe, which is battling financial crisis after financial crisis?  Jordan, a critical “buffer zone” for Israel and country friendly to the west, has already absorbed about 460,000 people, and expects that number to double by the end of the year.

“The refugees will collapse Europe,” Beck said.  “Not to mention start a civil war. People have no place to go.”

Yet another reason for America not to be involved militarily at all in Syria,” Beck concluded. “We have already made it bad, what can we possibly do to make it better?”

Beck spoke with TheBlaze’s Buck Sexton, who is currently on the ground in Amman, Jordan, about his conclusions.  Watch the full clip, below:
