i think what they saying in that first video is US cant win short of nukes or utter destruction and murder of the whole population. 2 things they wont do and wont be allowed to do,, hence becoming like vietnam war except with a much more stronger and ferocious enemy. Also the damage to both of thm and israel will be catastrophic in just a short time.watch the beginning where it talks about the Middle East, Iran would be an easy takeover yet very crucial, and one of the reason why it will probably happen like in Iraq(resources)
Easy takeover against Iran? The Americans would take a bigger L than they did in the war against the Vietnamese.watch the beginning where it talks about the Middle East, Iran would be an easy takeover yet very crucial, and one of the reason why it will probably happen like in Iraq(resources)

If the U.S waged war against Iran, it would last for many years, enormous expenditure (heavy burden on Americans back home), and other big nations like Russia and China would have taken advantage of this, thus put America in a weaker position.
War is not as predictable as the video you posted. If things were that fixed, then the war would have been relatively easy for the powerful.
Not to forget the diplomatic ties that would be severed with the EU, who are tired of how Trump is short-term oriented, short-sighted, and impulsive.
The US struggles to have international legitimacy because Israel and the United Arab Emirates backed off from their hawkish attitudes towards Iran. Because they know that real problems would hit them in the face if shit got real.
Russia and European countries, especially those still party to the Iran nuclear deal, are also working as go-betweens to end the standoff. European nations worry greatly about millions of refugees streaming into the continent if a war with Iran breaks out, which would put immense pressure on governments already dealing with the fallout of the Syrian refugee crisis.
Last but least, Trump himself doesn't want a skirmish with Iran at the moment. It is his idiotic national security adviser and the secretary of state Bolton, Pompeo, and others want regime change in Iran and are using the intelligence that shows Tehran doing provocative things to advocate for a more combative stance.
Vietnam's initial objective was to make the whole country Communist, and the American aim was to stop this from happening. The Vietnamese ended up becoming Communist at the end of the day, while the US almost spent one trillion USD accounting for inflation. The US military performed much worse than the Vietnamese relative to their military tech and expenditure.Eh America never lost the Vietnam war in a battle sense, just had to pull out due to sjw and hippies who didn’t want to fight anymore
