NYT and ABCnews: Trump had approved an airstrike on Iran, but backed at at the last second while it was being carried out

President Trump ordered military strike on Iran, but reversed at last second: Sources

 

The sources tell ABC News the president’s reason for changing course was unclear, but the reversal was against the advice of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

 

The plan and reversal was first reported by The New York Times.

 

A senior level administration source briefed on the plan says it would have escalated the situation quickly had it been carried out. Officials feared the attack could have caused hundreds of civilian casualties.

 

Anybody who calls themselves a serious and informed adult shouldn't be prioritizing anything else as the main problem in America besides the fact that we have a truly incompetent fool that is literally seconds away from screwing up this country at any given time.

Looks to me like Bolton and the CIA are pushing for war and Trump is resisting.

He’s setting up through repeated antagonistic behavior a war with Iran. He wants them to attack first so they’ll have an actual reason to go to war. Don’t forget he’s complaining about them when a deal was already in place that he backed out of. He wants to run his campaign on being a hard military candidate in 2020. It’s the same GOP playbook that they’ve been doing since Regan.

35% of all the world's oil is transported through the Straight of Hormuz, which also affects China. The moment there's a real escalation, Iran will shut that down.

 

So, an oil crisis on top of the tariff wars that are occuring, as he attempts to enter his re-election campaign?

 

Not only that.......Iran already knows that the US attempted to strike them, and Iran is now saying that they spotted another plane flying with the drone in the same (disputed) airspace carrying 35 soldiers, and they specifically said they chose not to shoot it down. 

 

And this isn't going to be Iraq or Afghanistan. The US will have zero international support. And Iran's military is 10x bigger than Iraq's. Apparently it was Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, and the CIA Director Gina Haspel (the overseer of "enhanced interrogation techniques") who were pushing the President for the strike.

 

And then the Pentagon countered by telling Trump that if he strikes Iran, he will unleash complete chaos throughout that entire region.

 

..............over a drone. A day has now past, and we don't even see dumb right-wingers in red-states demanding war. They seem relatively quiet. Even they know that starting a war over a drone isn't believable.

Turkey is obviously going to block a strike on Iran from their territory. Looks like they might want to use Georgia from a Northern attack as well.

Only works if the public feels the War is justified

No no no.. USA has applied many sanctions already that does not allow US businesses to buy oil from Iran severely impacting their income.  Do you think if they were scared to be cut off they would do that?

 

Our great nation of Canada has now approved the pipeline from Canada's massive oil sands to the US.  US and Canada will get along well.  Fuck the sand jiggas.

 

Once again this guy has no idea what he's talking about.

Iran shutting down the Straight of Hormuz also cuts off Saudi Arabia, einstein. LOL
