Glenn Beck reflected on the latest news across the Middle East and within the United States on radio Monday, saying he continues to fear the path we are on leads to World War III.

“My theory is this whole thing is coming apart at the seams, that this thing is at its end,” he said, proceeding to reflect on how many years passed between the election of former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the beginning of World War II.

“Just like with FDR, I think things are falling apart,” Beck explained.  He specifically pointed out that a wildly disproportionate amount of U.S. jobs added in July were part-time, low-paying, or both, and that many are blaming the burdensome costs the president’s health care plan places on employers.

Couple economic instability with a “proxy war” in the Middle East, Beck said, and trouble is on the horizon.

“You’re at the point now where the proxy war is about to be discovered,” Beck asserted. “Russia has picked Iran; we have picked the Muslim Brotherhood and Libya and Egypt…”

“It’s been a cold war, it’s been a proxy war, it’s been one where nobody really understands it yet, but I think you’re about to,” he continued.  “I think this whole thing in the Middle East is the beginning of the end of the proxy war and a covert war.  You are now going to see an openly hot war, I fear, and the beginning of World War III.”
