Starting At 10 Minutes...

 ... in the video Larry Wilkerson starts to talk what I write and speak non-stop about for the last 10+ years: US doesn't know what real war is. 

A very few American military and intel people who grasp the severity of America's unpreparedness for real war of the XXI century and a military catastrophe which will befall ANY combination of the US forces and its lapdogs from Europe if they decide to fight one, only now begin to make some dent in illiterate and, frankly, amateurish thinking of military-political top in the US. 

Totally agree with Scott on his conclusion on Iran strikes:

The “Missiles of April” represent a sea-change moment in Middle Eastern geopolitics—the establishment of Iranian deterrence that impacts both Israel and the United States. While emotions in Tel Aviv, especially among the more radical conservatives of the Israeli government, run high, and the threat of an Israeli retaliation against Iran cannot be completely discounted, the fact is the underlying policy objective of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the course of the past 30-plus years, namely to drag the US into a war with Iran, has been put into checkmate by Iran. Moreover, Iran has been able to accomplish this without either disrupting its strategic pivot to the east or undermining the cause of Palestinian statehood. “Operation True Promise,” as Iran named its retaliatory attack on Israel, will go down in history as one of the most important military victories in the history of modern Iran, keeping in mind that war is but an extension of politics by other means. The fact that Iran has established a credible deterrence posture without disrupting major policy goals and objectives is the very definition of victory.

Very well put.
