China is stationing 6 warships in the Middle East, the U.S. Navy is increasing its presence in the area, and Iran might have a nuclear weapon. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is allegedly trying to delay Israel's ground invasion, reportedly to free more hostages. But Glenn believes there may be other motives. Glenn reviews the latest updates as the war appears to escalate even further and warns that we're entering dangerous waters: "If this goes wrong, we are at World War III."

GLENN: According to reports now, up to six Chinese warships are currently stationed in the Middle East. China's People Liberation, Army, the CPLA, reported engagement in a joint military exercise with Omani Navy while visiting Oman. Again, it's like, you know, when -- when Mexico got their hostages, you know, or their people out of Israel, and they use their Air Force.
I thought to myself, I thought, I didn't know Mexico had an Air Force. Same thing with Oman. Didn't know I found it on a map.
And they have a Navy. It's cute. It's cute.
It's probably a little like the Cayman Islands. And the British Virgin Islands. Or they use British ships.
Because I don't think they're British anymore.
They got rid of those occupiers. I'll tell you that now.
So the Navy escort task force. Is now by Kuwait. Which is right there, near Iran.
Which I think is really, really -- no. Seriously. It's -- now.
My question is: Why has Israel not responded.
What is happening there?
Now, I've got a couple of ideas, on this.
One, the New York Times is reporting, that the US is advising Israel to delay the Gaza invasion.
For needed hostage negotiation.
Now, apparently, two Americans got out.
The -- the Palestinians have returned to American hostages over weekend.
I love it, that we're working with Qatar. Because, you know, they're -- I mean, they're just the number one funder of the Muslim Brotherhood.
And that's big -- big funder and founder of Hamas.
So that's -- that's really good. I hope we gave them some money. In exchange for these hostages.
I don't know if it's about the hostages, as much as it is a very convenient way for the United States to delay any kind of ground invasion, until all the media turns on Israel. Because that's what's happening. They're already saying.
They haven't done anything yet. And they're like, they're such a bad country. They're going to kill all these people.
And if they would have acted last week. Or the week before, you would have seen, more sympathy.
But I think we are -- I think this is a complete game. That the White House is playing.
To keep Bibi Netanyahu and the Israelis from not striking.
However, there is another possibility.
Obviously, you know, I'm not in the rooms.
But I did think, are they just preparing to go to the head of the snake?
Now, I don't think so. But we do know that they -- that Israel. I mean, Iran now has one nuclear weapon.
And are just about to develop its second nuclear weapon.
So is it possible that they are just going to target Iran.
It's clerics, or its nuclear facilities.
Now, the nuclear facility is supposedly buried so long. So deep, that you're not supposed to be able to knock it out with any kind of conventional weapon.
The army seems ready to go, they've been ready for a few days. Aerial bombardments, meant to prepare the ground.
Are meeting with diminishing returns now at this point.
And the widely accepted reason over in Israel. Is international pressure.
Plus, the long train of visiting dignitaries. And possible negotiations.
The problem with the ladder is that Hamas will probably go for the drip, drip approach. Meaning to drag out more time. And the media will continue to turn on Israel.
If they're going to target Iran, most likely they'll target the nuclear installations. What was the reactor?
They did this in like 1981, I think. And, you know, they went after the reactor. And it was good.
Now, maybe if the main operation is successful this time, you'll see the Mossad taking out a few top scientists and military leaders as we have in the past.
But, you know, Gad Saad said, that this would take incredible. I'm quoting testicular fortitude.
And I don't know. Most are saying, it can't be done. Different from 1981.
It's difficult. But they all said it couldn't be done back in 1981, as well.
You know, the Tom Cruise guys, they do exist. They're probably as short. But not as good looking.
And most of them are probably Israelis.
So, you know, they kind of have this don't miss with us kind of image.
But we'll see.
If they can pull it off.
That means the testicular area may be made out of steel on Bibi Netanyahu.
I'm not really -- I'm not really sure.
But we will continue to watch this.
Let's see. There's a couple of other things.
PAT: That would majorly escalate this thing however.
I think they understand that -- I think we understand that. And I'm sure the administration is strongly recommending they don't do that.
GLENN: What are they going to do?
PAT: I think they should do it.
But I don't know.
They -- you know, they are the head of the snake.
PAT: And that's the only way to put a stop to this.
And so, but it does escalate things. So it's --
GLENN: I think pretty much anything they're doing.
PAT: It's a big decision.
GLENN: When I saw that China.
Now, China was there already.
But to have them move their ships in, shows, you know, that's Iran.
So there is an axis of evil.
And those three are together.
PAT: With us.
GLENN: Against us. Against us.
PAT: Right. But they're all in the same general vicinity.
GLENN: If this goes wrong, we are at World War III, quickly.
PAT: No doubt. Yeah, and there's all kinds of things that could go wrong. That somebody makes a mistake. There's a hair trigger by somebody, and it's on. It's a really dangerous situation.
GLENN: So you have the rest of the world, however, turning.
And you look at what's happening around the world.
England is going to turn against Israel.
Because I don't think England will have a choice.
I mean, these countries have allowed themselves to be laid waste. By so many Islamists.
It's not Islam.
It is Islamists.
People who believe that the Koran must be implemented as the highest source of law.
Those guys are crazy.
I know some Muslims that are not crazy.
But they're reformed. And they would be the first -- the Islamists would behead.
So they're the kind of people that shut their mouth, you know, in their own community, because they don't want to be dead. But look at what happened over the weekend. In London. It was not good. It was not good.
And you're starting to see moves. There was a -- they won't even give the details of the terrorist strike in London. Did you hear about this, Pat?
GLENN: So in London, first of all, the BBC, will not say that Hamas is a terrorist group. The BBC.
And that's really kind of not good.
GLENN: Fueling more anti-Israel and anti-Semitism.
Because they're -- they -- they won't say that the Palestinian, Hamas was wrong.
GLENN: They're saying, that it's -- well, it's a charity. It's a charity.
Sure it is. Sure it is.
GLENN: There was -- there was a hit in London, I think it was.
Let me see if I can find it real quick. There was awe hit, where the authorities won't even say what it -- what exactly happened. They said that it was -- yeah. Here. Pro-Palestinian terror attack.
Alleged terror attack has already been carried out in Britain by an asylum seeker, waiting to avenge deaths in Gaza.
According to the telegraph, the man who came to the country, in 2020. Look at that. It's 2023. Okay?
Told police, he had carried out the -- as yet, undisclosed action for Palestine.
Newspaper reports, the case cannot fully be revealed for legal reasons.
But that the suspect is now in custody, after being arrested. He said, he had done it, because Israel had killed children in Gaza.
Now, that's a bizarre thing.
He's already carried out, his mission. But they won't say what it was.
GLENN: What does that -- what kind of -- what is that?
Questions have been raised over wide details about the incident have not been disclosed. But security sources, told the publication. They may be downplaying it. So they don't have a repeat attack. Or copycat attacks.
Nations around the world are on high alert. So-called wolf attacks by extremists motivated by the worsening situation in the Middle East. In Brussels, Belgium on Monday.
A -- a man with a gun, downed two Swedish football supporters before being shot dead by the police. He was motivated by his Palestinian love. Because they're just such lovely, charitable people. He was just giving away bullets.
So he gives the bullets away too fast, for some people. Who are you to judge?
Who are you to judge?
So you have the terror threat. All over Europe. Going up.
How are you -- how is France going to handle this, if Israel goes in, and bombs Iran?
Or does more with Hamas?
You're going to have all these western countries, saying, stop it. Stop it right now.
Because they'll number trouble.
So you will, what? Sacrifice the Jewish state.
Is that what happens?
PAT: That's foretold somewhere too.
PAT: I'm trying to think.
GLENN: Yeah. It's weird, wasn't it?
PAT: Was it Michael Buble, that foretold that?
GLENN: I think -- Fly Me to the Moon, where all the nations gather around.
PAT: Yeah. That's what it was.
GLENN: Something like that. They're all against Israel or something.
