He was being coaxed and pushed into that decision.

That's what the world wants... The string pullers global conquest is good for them bad for us.

In a lucid moment of decision making, the Don issued his pardon.

Kiss the ring.

Trump demands urgent meeting with Iranian leader Ayatollah Khamenei to settle tensions as Tehran shows off wreckage of US drone

Quote:
In his message, Trump said he was against any war with Iran and wanted to talk to Tehran about various issues,” one Iranian official told Reuters.

“He gave a short period of time to get our response but Iran’s immediate response was that it is up to Supreme Leader Khamenei to decide about this issue,” the official added.

A second official told Reuters that Iran had made it clear that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the country's supreme leader, was currently against the prospect of negotiations but that his message would be delivered to Iran's leadership nonetheless.

sounds like maga wants another summit.

doesn't sound like big d*ck khamenei wants to talk.

Typically, a war gives you a 2nd term as the country unites.. Historically it has been true

Apparently it was approved by Trump and then Trump also turned it down

Washington -- President Trump on Thursday ordered the U.S. military to conduct a limited strike against Iran to retaliate for the downing of a Navy surveillance drone in the Persian Gulf region, but he then called off the operation just an hour before it was to begin. The president's change of course avoided, for now, what would have been the most significant escalation of hostilities between Washington and Tehran in decades.

There was every indication the U.S. was about to launch a limited strike against Iranian surface-to-air missile sites on Thursday evening, but the military stood down at the 11th hour. More than one source confirmed this to CBS News, including two sources within the Trump administration who were familiar with the president's decision. The sources said the plan was already underway when it was called off.

The operation was halted just one hour before it was to begin, sources have told CBS News.

All indications are someone spoke with Trump or he had an epiphany to change his mind

I don't recall Obama's ACTUAL drone strikes getting all this press coverage.


Hundreds upon hundreds of Obama drone strikes = Not a war


Trump's response to Iran downing one of our drones = World War 3



Yep. Makes sense.

yes.

only the commander-in-chief has the authority to call for/cancel such a strike.

must've looked like some classic 3 stooges skit in the situation room last night.

i know it's killing this man the emperor that he can't tweet something about obama or hillary and he's in charge instead.

Libya did go down
I find it extremely amusing that certain posters think that the personality or opinion of the POTUS matters. Don, in case you havent figure it out your country is not run by Trump.

Especially since before the election he was basically saying Trump was exactly like Bush and going to start a bunch of wars.

Along with the "he'll have his finger on da nuke button" line. Low-IQs.

and there it is.

Iran breaches uranium stockpile limit set by nuclear deal

Iran has broken the limit set on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium by its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, international inspectors and Tehran said Monday, marking its first major departure from the unraveling agreement a year after the U.S. unilaterally withdrew from the accord.

The announcement by Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and later confirmation by the U.N. nuclear watchdog puts new pressure on European nations trying to save the deal amid President Donald Trump’s maximalist campaign targeting Tehran. Iran separately threatened to raise its uranium enrichment closer to weapons-grade levels on July 7 if Europe fails to offer it a new deal.

...

Though Trump pulled back from airstrikes targeting Iran after the U.S. drone was shot down, Washington has rushed an aircraft carrier strike group, nuclear-capable B-52 bombers and thousands of additional troops to the region. That’s raised fears that a miscalculation or further incidents could push the two sides into an armed conflict, some 40 years after the Islamic Revolution and the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran.

Speaking to journalists in Tehran, Zarif acknowledged Iran that broken through the limit set by the accord.

“We had previously announced this and we have said it transparently what we are going to do,” Zarif said. “We are going to act according to what we have announced and we consider it our right reserved in the nuclear deal.”

bang up job.

how many angry late night empty threat tweets will this produce?
