Iran Just Destroyed U.S. Power in the Middle East

We just witnessed one of the biggest changes in middle eastern (or west asian) geopolitics in decades.

Iran's highly targeted attack on Israel and the signaling towards the other Arab states, combined with its incredible diplomacy, allowed Tehran to brake free from U.S. strangle-hold. This talk was recorded only hours before Israel's (limited) counter attack on Iran, in the morning hours of April 19. So far, it seems Ambassador freeman correctly predicted that Israel has to change its strategic calculations.

Ambassador Chas Freeman was U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia from 1990-92 and then became Assistant Secretary of Defense from 93-94. Ambassador Freeman's homepage.
