Why Trump Stopped US Attack on Iran at Last Minute

President Donald Trump on Friday revealed that he stopped plan to attack Iran 10 minutes before set time.

Trump made the disclosure on his Twitter page.

“On Monday they shot down an unmanned drone flying in International Waters. 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. 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!” he tweeted.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) had announced its air force had shot down a US “spy” drone on Thursday morning near Kuhmobarak in the southern province of Hormozgan.

IRGC commander-in-chief Maj-Gen Hossein Salami said the drone’s downing was a “clear message” to the US that Iran’s borders were “our red line”.
Iranian officials say two warnings were issued 10 minutes before the drone was shot down.

Amir Ali Hajizadeh, a high-ranking officer in the IRGC, said another military aircraft, carrying 35 passengers, had been flying close to the drone. “We could have shot down that one too, but we did not,” he said.

The shooting down of the drone followed accusations by the US that Iran had attacked two oil tankers with mines outside the Strait of Hormuz, in the Gulf of Oman.
