More civil wars coming to the Middle East?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The uprisings that took place in Egypt a little over a year ago sparked what we now know as the Arab Spring, which resulted in violent protests spreading across the Middle East. Among the impacted countries was Syria, which broke out into a brutal civil war that has killed upwards of 90,000 people. With the escalation of the conflict now including possible involvement from superpowers on both sides of the fight, there’s no reason to believe that the violence is approaching a halt. In fact, it looks like more fighting is on the way for Syria, Egypt, and other countries in the region.

While the media may have you believe that the Egyptian people had a “successful” democratic uprising that enabled them to elect a new leader and that the country is back on track, the truth is far from that. Tension is high in Egypt, and last week TheBlaze’s Buck Sexton spent the week in the Middle East and has first hand information about the increasing hostility and violence in the region.

Buck joined Glenn on radio this morning to discuss what he saw while he was on the ground in the Middle East.

Buck explained that the one-year anniversary of Mohammed Morsi’s rule will be on June 30th.

“He is the guy who has run this country into the ground,” Buck said of Morsi. “Even people who are completely, which, how should I say this, who voted for him in the beginning. I spoke with activists, people who are in Tahrir Square from the start who looking at me with shame in their eyes. And I’ve got to say I think understandably so given what’s happened because they voted for Morsi. So‑called liberals, people who wanted change in the country, and they’re outraged.”

“Now here’s the problem,” Buck continued, “nothing can really legally come of these massive demonstrations. And we’re talking millions, Glenn. We’re not talking about thousands. They think there will be millions of people Countrywide who will demonstrate in some way. This could lead to bloody clashes in Cairo. The military who sort of has been standing on the sidelines and watching the Muslim Brotherhood just completely run this country into the ground. The military has said, “Oh, we might step in.” Well, guess what. If the military steps in, the possibility of an actual coup becomes very high. If they don’t step in, you have very powerful factions in this country that are warring on the streets and nothing to stop them.”

Buck went on to explain that he doesn’t know who will step in — he’s not sure that they know either…but the protests or “rallies” are coming.

“We’ll watch for these protests starting on the 28th. I actually got a flyer from the Muslim Brotherhood — starting on the 28th, that’s when they are going to get the rallies going,” Buck explained. “And if these things start to get violent and out of control and you don’t see a military presence on the streets, nobody knows where it’s going to end.”

“The only other thing I’d say, Glenn, is there’s a distinct possibility that we may see some sort of U.S. escalation with regard to Syria as well,” Buck continued. “This of course affects everything in the broader Middle East, and I have something up right now on TheBlaze that shows everybody what I learned in the refugee camps in Zaatari, which I would encourage people to go and check out because they’ve got everything there.  They have got Al‑Qaeda infiltrations, they’ve got stories of war.  I mean, that’s really a window into what’s happening there and everything is connected.”

What Buck saw on the ground confirmed many of Glenn’s concerns that the Brotherhood and the Jihadists are all working together. They are working towards the same goals.

“We’re headed towards a Middle East war if things don’t calm down,” Buck said. “That’s for sure. And Glenn, as anybody who looks at how the world wars broke out in the past, certainly the first one, it was that unforeseen inciting event. It was something that nobody could have predicted and nobody was expecting that caused the world to catch on fire.”

“There are plenty of places where there’s gasoline on the ground in the Middle East; it’s just a question of what the match is going to be.”

    Wars and rumors of wars.  And now the administration talking heads are ratcheting up the rhetoric against China and Russia because they don’t turn over Snowden.  They don’t even know where Snowden is.  If they can’t even do that, I think it prudent that we do not give up our nukes and trust this administration to verify any agreement.

    Obama will be go down in history as “The Sh’t stirrer in-Chief”.

  • landofaahs

    Obama wants these takeovers because he wants radical muslim terrorsts running the world.  He’s a muslim terrorist running this country already.

  • landofaahs

    Obama. The beast that would stir the world?

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    More Civil Wars? Yes.

    This is the result of Obama’s support of terrorists, extremists and other radical Islamist’s during the so-called Arab Spring. He has set the Middle East on fire, and it will soon rage into a full scale conflagration which will envelope it completely; and by extension, probably drag the rest of the world into the next World War.

    In the end, how much more blood is to be found on Obama’s hands. 

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    No, Obama is not the beast, he is, as are so many others around the world, heavily influenced by the evil of the Beast.

    We cannot trust the admin in any shape or form; Obama wants absolute power and he will commit us onto the path of war just for the sake of his injured pride. He sees his power endangered and his madness will not permit this to be tolerated for long.

    I have wondered for some time if Obama is not an Iranian ‘Manchurian Candidate’ or an follower of the 12th Imadi.

    No matter what, Obama is fulfilling the philosophy of the Fabyian’s as Soros has sought for so long by igniting the world and reforging it as he wishes.

    See liberals this is why most people with functioning brains did not support the Arab spring. I hope you’re happy with the rapes murders and mass killings because you guys just had to support it.

    You never know.

    Look it that, now Buck is an expert of foreign issues. Sure??

    Suppose for a minute that Obama is a muslim. Article IV, paragraph 3 of OUR Constitution specifically states that there is NO religious test for any public office. So, really, the problem isn’t OUR President, the problem is people like YOU . . . brother.

    Obama is done in 2016 loco! he can’t be back, he won’t be back, and he does not want to be back, specially with people like you voting for the party of NO and other conservative pundits, who think they know how to govern because other stupid folks voted for them

  • http://www.facebook.com/rigoberto.serrano.39 Pachy Serrano

    Rape and murders were happening when the previous “US backed leaders” were in power loco. Mostly young people moved with the Arab spring. Democracy or a Republic takes time my friend. We were a mess too when we started our great nation, so what’s your point??

     the Arab spring was happening with or without us.  We supported Mubarak until it became clear that his days in charge were numbered.

  • bigbopper

    Has anyone noticed that anything Obama touches turns out bad.  It’s very creepy.  Something very demonic  about this man.  

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htXuNPBko3Q Sam Fisher

    I say why even take a side? We got enough trouble here than to go out into other countries and find even more.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htXuNPBko3Q Sam Fisher

    Let’s not support dictators or bloody revolutions that clearly are not back up by nice people. Sure the common Egyptian did not want this but that is what happens in a country where mayhem rules. We should of just mind are own problems and gave anyone who wanted to escape the madness a way out. I know someone who has family their and he is having trouble getting any of the paper work to get them out of there. I am hearing some sick stories coming out of that country Glenn is only getting 5% of the true story.

    You can’t go anywhere in the world and feel safe. If you travel to Europe, Asia, Africa…wherever you travel the Muslims have their grip on some sort of (evil) power. We’ve been in WWIII for some time now and it’s only going to get worse.

    The problem first of all is your name Pachy.  Second of all are you an American citizen?  If so, maybe you can get in touch with Obama a get his real birth certificate and read it.  He is not.  Guess what, he is in that office and should not be.  He has yet to produce a REAL birth certificate.

    I vote for the Beast!!!  If not then he is a forerunner for him.  It is amazing how the Bible is being played out and the things that are happening now.  We can see it right before our eyes.

    Agree.  He wants to be on top of everything.  Obama wants to be the world leader.  Gosh, if he ruins other countries like he has America we are in a world of hurt.  He will not stop until he is leader of all.

    Had on the news that John Kerry has allocated another 1.5 billion dollars to Egypt to help stabilize their economy.  What about ours?  Can’t continue to print money for the rest of our lives.  It is all about to come to a head.  Look up for our Lord is coming.

    First, You are not my brother.  2nd I have the right of free speech by that same constitution.  If you don’t like it, don’t listen.  You don’t have a right not to hear but of free speech.  I will call the president any name I wish, so deal with it.

  • landofaahs

    We were free when we were a republic.  Democracy is 51% deciding they can kill the 49%.  Do you like that democracy?  You are right, it took us time to mess up our God-given rights to be ruled by a majority.

    Cmon Buck!! There you go again! You know everything there is to tell us about Syria, got the info straight from the victims in the refugee camps! And, about Egypt, got the info straight from the “liberals?” in Tahrir Square!  And… Your “expert on the Middle East” analysis is… “well–this could happen, or—that could happen–or… but it’s gonna be bad!!” Can’t quite put your finger on the pulse of things over there from just a few anecdotal conversations and a look from the sidelines can you?  When you do get your head wrapped around this we’ll be waiting for your latest words of wisdom.

    The President’s Oath of Office specifically states:
    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    I am interested to know if you think that he has done so up to this point, and if you can provide citations of such action.

    Since you are a regular here, I expect that you are aware of several citations to the contrary, so please, don’t divert from the question, or insult us with charges that none have been provided – just answer the question and provide explanation and/or references for your claim.

     Golly Paco, or Pachy or whatever you name is. looks like you stepped into a hornet’s nest by running your mouth here.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htXuNPBko3Q Sam Fisher

    But the thing is we really don’t have any friendly relations with this new government. They took some of our people hostage once already and to be honest I am sick of this country backing dictators and it does not matter to me which side of the aisle it is it is wrong. This country is supposed to be a beacon of freedom not a supporter of fascism.

  • ken.

    our libertarian founding fathers intended for us to stay out of others conflicts unless it was an eminent threat to america, this is not isolationist it is minding your own business until it becomes your business. we are not to be the worlds police force, if we are attacked then we can send several thousand missiles and destroy their infrastructure. getting involved in propping up evil dictators who mistreat their own people in the name of keeping peace has started a campaign of hate and terrorism and now we are arming the terrorists who hate us. this is stupidity and insanity. to them we are infidels and the will never like us but we shouldn’t antagonize and provoke them.
