Glenn Beck dedicated the entire hour of his television program Tuesday to the follow-up of what he says got him into "so much trouble" during the so-called Arab Spring: a chalkboard that predicted the protests would cascade, and that radicals would work with Islamists overturn stability.
We will be discussing this story and all the day's news on our live BlazeCast beginning at 3 pm ET:
On Tuesday, Beck told his audience where he believes the road will now lead: World War III.
"The one thing that always gets me in trouble is usually I am way ahead of the game, and I have no perception of time," Beck said. "I see things on a flat wall. They are coming, but it won't be tomorrow."
He added: "I hope with everything in me that I'm wrong, but the pattern of history is incredibly consistent...Everything is up for grabs in the world, and the rush for power is on."
Beck argued that there are currently three dominant groups:
'The Caliphate': "It is the stated goal of Muslim Brotherhood leaders and many far left Islamists to re-establish the Caliphate, the Ottoman Empire, or the global Islamic state," Beck said, playing video of Islamist leaders across the globe saying just that.
But, he added, this group is divided between Sunni and Shia Muslims. While Sunni Muslims -- who dominate much of post-Arab Spring North Africa, Saudi Arabia, and the Muslim Brotherhood -- aim to implement an Islamic state, Beck said the radical Shiites who wield influence in places like Iran, Assad's Syria, and Pakistan are more focused on hastening the return of the twelfth imam. They believe he will only appear when the world is drowned in blood and chaos, so they aim to create those conditions.
"But either way, they both [believe] they control the entire world in the end," Beck said.
'The Controllers': "Whether they are communists, socialists, fascists, progressives, Fabian socialists, bankers, Bilderbergs, Nazis, drug lords, Mayor Bloomberg... " Beck stated. "[This is] anyone who wants either wants power in their own little fiefdom, or wants to control the planet through the United Nations or whatever. Anyone who wants a slice of that 'control' pie."
He put countries like Russia, China, and North Korea in the "control" category.
'Those That Just Want to Survive': But throughout the world, most people aren't thinking in terms of global domination, Beck said. Most people just want to live their lives, or, depending on where they live, just want enough food and water to get by. Beck put about 90% of the world into this category.
"That, unfortunately, this is the group that loses in the end, because this group is always forced to choose between stuff and sacrifice," Beck said. "They have to choose sides eventually."
"The problem is, nobody is offering you a real choice," Beck said, proceeding to draw out the potential "new map."
"The only way we stand in the end is to stand for something. If we don't, we'll have to choose between one of [the first] two groups," Beck declared.
At the end of the show, Beck invited Patrick Poole, the national security expert at PJ Media, and Frank Gaffney, the former assistant secretary of defense and the founder of the Center for Security Policy, to weigh in on his conclusions.
All three agreed that Syria is a lynchpin, and that intervention will have major, international ramifications.
"We're watching flash points developing all over the world," Gaffney added. "North Korea, China, Sweden, Venezuela and what's coming next in Latin America, Africa...The problem is, we've got these tectonic shifts that are taking place, and we're not an anchor."
