President Donald Trump confirmed Friday he pulled back a military strike on Iran after he learned the number of possible casualties. “We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on three different sights (sic),” Trump revealed on Twitter. The attack was planned in retaliation for Iran shooting down a U.S. surveillance drone on Thursday in international waters.Trump said prior to the strikes he was told by a general the casualties could be up to 150 people. “Ten minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone,” he wrote. Trump added that he was in “no hurry” for additional military conflicts with Iran

Might it have been an effort to show Iran what could happen if they keep escalating?

I think that Trump acknowledging this is a message to Iran about how close they came to being hit.

The last thing you want is a war but it's doubly troublesome when the democrats hold a majority in the house. As in Vietnam the democrats have a tendency to walk away from the military fighting the war when it becomes inconvenient for them to support the action. On their best day the democrats are duplicitous but on their worst day they're treasonous.

The President needs better guidance. There are MANY targets that would not involve a large number of humans getting killed or injured; start with rail lines, pipelines, roads, oil wells, etc. Then move up to electric utilities. Just wipe out the infrastructure and Iran would come to a standstill. The nuclear sites are underground and would be useless without any above ground support. Why is this so hard to understand ?

We could use lots of costly missiles and bombs to destroy their critical infrastructure, then rebuild it all better than new at US taxpayer expense, as in Iraq. What's not to like?

Last night Sean Hannity’s hair was on fire arguing with Geraldo Rivera over whether or not to get another war going in the ME. The two were trying to shout each other down and neither had a clue of what Trump is attempting to do. PDJT just wants Iran at a bargaining table to create a win-win scenario for both sides. Iran wants to sell its oil and the world wants Iran to be without nuclear weapons. Iran is on the near edge of economic collapse and trying to militarily bully its way out of it. I trust Trump’s instincts and abilities. So should Hannity.

So what is there to complain about? The MSM is calling this 'failure to launch' - it is not a failure. It is wisdom. Nor is stopping the strike a show of weakness & lack of resolve. The point is we could have done it, we came close to doing it! And did not. We can still retaliate if we wish. It is like having a sword hanging over Iran. Kinda like psychological warfare. President Trump did not escalate nor up the ante. Anyone killed would have become martyrs and that would become a rallying point to inflame the populace. This is strategy. We have a true Commander in Chief.

Agree with #3. I was going to back to the original NYT article posted here early this morning, but couldn't find it. I did see it was the classic "unnamed sources." Don't discount a high ranking uniformed member being the leaker. During the planning for OIF, General Franks was so concerned about a leaker in the "Tank" that he briefed an optional course of action which was a false plan just to see if it ended up in the press. And it did. IMO the weasel was Shinseki. It wouldn't surprise me if if there are still a few flags making hay off of their access. OTOH, Trump was maybe running a similar op as Franks to root out the leaker who shared info with the Slimes.

...Praying like crazy that PJDT would take no hasty action in retaliation against Iran. In the not too distant past, Washington DC politicrats (republican and democrat), foreign governments and George Tenet (democrat in charge of CIA) were all over cable tv insisting that Sadaam Hussein/ Iraq had wmd's and used them on his own people. Pressure from both sides mounted on former president George W. Bush to deal forcefully with what was deemed to be a dangerous situation. Finally, we had bi-partisanship in Washington! But when all was said and done, democrats, rinos and the media were the first to turn on him. Remember code Pink, (paid) protestors, "Bush lied-people died" etc.? If PDJT makes a heavy-handed response to the 'bi-partisan" pressure to punish Iran for shooting down a drone, it could end up being "Trump lied-people died". Hard to get a second term in office with that hanging over his head. Plus, the dems and the media desperately need a diversion and a cover. War always works. In the breathless, wall-to-wall, media coverage of the "war", results of the FBI-DOJ investigations will be swept under the rug. Frankly, I will not be surprised if we later discover democrats were manipulating Iran behind the scenes to needle Trump into a war. Remember the former administrations' attempts to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 2015? (https://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/28/us/politics/former-obama-campaign-aide-now-works-to-oust-netanyahu.html) Take your time Mr. President. I'm hoping and praying that you will find a way/s to make a measured response and deal with the already-weakened Iranian regime without firing one single shot.

This smells to me like a brilliant fake on Trump's part. Perhaps even a double fake. First, he wants Iran to feel the pressure of a finger on a double set hair trigger. Second, he may have simultaneously found a mole by setting them up with an irresistible bait.

I think if you step back you'll see a familiar pattern here: I'm gonna order a strike. No, I'm not. Oh, perhaps this was a mistake by somebody stupid. I'm waiting to hear this was just bad judgment. Very soon they'll see how serious I am. I'm gonna strike. Well, I ordered it. But I called it off at the last minute. This is Trump's classic modus operandi. It's a successful business strategy which he uses regularly. It gives him an edge in negotiations because the opposition can never be 100% sure where he stands. He accomplishes exactly what he set out to accomplish.

#17 - Speaking as the wife of a retired Army Major with 25 years of service; our military personnel understand strategy and tactics. They would rather gear up for combat, even begin the mission, and be called back than initiate hostile action. They much prefer missions that are warning messages to useless military strikes whose purpose is to shore up the macho image of a politician. The men and women wearing the uniform for the USA know President Trump values their lives and families and will not put them in harms way because he was bullied into it by those against the interests of our country. I'll bet they are cheering and laughing at the brilliance of their Commander in Chief. Reread #8. MAGA - Led by a very stable genius.

Remember back during the Presidential campaign when Donald Trump said the last thing that he intends to do as President is to continue to involve the USA in “endless wars”. Since President Trump was elected he has always followed that tact. That’s what is happening now, even after the Iranians shot down that US drone. Which Trump has said may have been the result of a local Iranian commander exceeding his authority. Whether that “mistake” occurred or not will soon become evident. Trump still asks the Iranians to come to the negotiating table. The next move is now with the Iranians, as if they fire on another US aircraft or ship, nobody can blame Trump for the kinetic fury that will rain down on the Iranian Military. As Trump has said, we will see what happens!

The chess game has fundamentally changed from the 1980s when we had the "Tanker War" with Iran. Then we were heavily dependent on Middle Eastern oil. Today, we are self-sufficient in oil and gas (thanks to the President, while the Dems worked furiously to prevent us from becoming self-sufficient). China, Japan and Korea are now very dependent on oil coming through the Straits of Hormuz. So....what will China, Japan and Korea do about Iran? I believe that the ships which were attacked were Japanese ships. Where is the Japanese Navy? Maybe they can send all three or four of their ships over, or whatever they have. And China....where are their (foolishly named) "Army Navy" ships? Come on, boys, time to ante up -- maybe the USA won't do all your dirty work for you this time.

We can kick Iran's butt in two weeks...the problem is the old "now what" as the country slips into total chaos! No thanks! Get these people out of power now!

Senate Republicans, eager to avert a government shutdown or automatic spending cuts, want acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney pushed to the sidelines in budget negotiations with Democrats. GOP lawmakers would prefer Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin take the lead in representing the White House, as they see him being more amenable to a two-year spending deal that would also raise the debt limit. Mulvaney, on the other hand, is viewed as resistant to striking a two-year deal, which would take the prospect of another government shutdown off the table until after the 2020 election.
