No REAL war can give you this result.
The police actions between the Roman and Persian empires did show a similar pattern. Of course, you've already proven those can't have been wars.
Those lasted for about 7 centuries, by the way.

Oneirist is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Guns

Also, the future Seanchan looked like they had some pretty advanced weaponry, which the Aiel seemed to completely lack.

Another omission in the vision, which I only realised this morning while rereading Mat's message to Egwene, is that there is no mention of the Horn of Valere. That would almost certainly end up as a Seanchan heirloom, and it would make a huge difference in big battles.

Unless the Horn is destroyed or made useless at some point. Perhaps Rand's "living and dying" involves the Horn rather than TAR proper in some way, and Nynaeve bringing him "out" from the Horny heroes in the manner Moghedien did with Birgitte breaks the Horn. Interestingly, if the Seanchan are the ones to sound the Horn, this might also fulfill the controversial prophecy of Rand bowing before the crystal throne.

Bah! Likely some simple farmer from some village sounded the horn already, and as long as he lives anyone who sounds that horn will just hear their own blarings.

Burn me! The way the Lord Dragon tugs at threads of the Pattern, it would not be a surprise if that simple peasant ended up conquering the Seanchean empire.

Not if that simple peasant were to die. And come back. Several times.

Pshaw! Tales worthy of a gleeman.

Might as well claim this simple peasant won a game of Snakes and Foxes while you are at it.
