Breaking: We Almost Rained Bombs On Iran – Trump Explains

222

The United States President, Donald Trump, has sought to explain why he abandoned plans to launch airstrikes on Iran, claiming US forces were “cocked and loaded to retaliate”.

In a series of tweets on Monday morning, the US president claimed he called off the operation over a fear the likely loss of life would be “not proportionate” to the downing of a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz.

“We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General,” Mr Trump said.

“10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone. I am in no hurry, our Military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go, by far the best in the world.

Sanctions are biting & more added last night. Iran can NEVER have Nuclear Weapons, not against the USA, and not against the WORLD!”
