On Tuesday, conservative radio host and Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity warned his audience that he could see the contours of a third world war that could triggered by U.S. intervention in Syria.
“If you read about World War I and you read about World War II,” Hannity began, “We’re going to look back through the prism of history and we’re going to define this era as the rise of the radical Islamists.”
“And you’re seeing the formation now of what could very potentially be the next world war,” Hannity warned, “because it’s not just the Middle East that is radicalized.”
Hannity said that Israel will eventually face a moment in which it may have to mount another multi-front war, given the radicalization of its neighbors’ governments. “At some point, Israel is going to come under fire and good countries are going to have to come to its defense,” Hannity said. “But it’s going to be against radical Islam in all of its forms.”
“You can almost see this precipitating it, if in fact the U.S. strikes,” Hannity continued, “and Iran gets involved and Syria gets involved, and you’re going to see countries very quickly go down the middle and start taking sides. It has the potential to powder keg.”
