Donald Trump Says He’s Not In Hurry To Confront Iran
On Friday, the rising tension between the two countries eased up temporarily after Donald Trump abruptly changed his mind of not retaliating with the military strike on Iran. He said that his decision to strike out on the country was the last minute call.
Trump said that the attack on Iran would have killed 150 people and would have raged the tension of war between the countries. He thought that the attack on Iran for shotting down the unmanned U.S. surveillance drone would be inappropriate. The President halted the call just before 10 minutes it was scheduled to take on Iran.
Going forward to the opposition party, Iran, the country said that they wanted to avoid American casualties in the matter and would have not shot the spy plan if it was not the manned U.S. aircraft flying by southern coastal region along the Strait of Hormuz.
The U.S. military acknowledges that the drone was flying considering the International law and it had not violated it by entering the Iranian waters. But the contrary was spoken by the Iranian military corps. In the end, the decision to confront each other was retrieved back to avoid the loss of human lives.
“We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday. “150 people, sir, was the answer from a General.” In the interview with NBC, he stated, “I thought about it for a second, and I said, ‘You know what, they shot down an unmanned drone. And here we are sitting with 150 dead people.’…And I didn’t like it. I didn’t think it was proportionate.”
Recently, the U.S. accused Iran of attacking six commercial ships with mines and said that the country was responsible for the fired rockets over the U.S. and other Western targeted regions. The U.S. military officials said that the P8 surveillance drone was 18 nautical miles away from the shoreline while the Iranian military argues that it was less than 8 nautical from Iran’s land.
