Iran is launching anti-ship missiles and submarines.
Now is the time that a small provocation could lead to a full-blown war.

Before that Clawson listed all the conflicts in which the U.S. didn't become involved until they were attacked, emphasizing that a false flag was needed each time for conflict to be initiated.
