I don't want to go to war with Iran

Trump says Iran strikes would not have been 'proportionate'

Mr Trump said yesterday he had called off a military strike to retaliate over the downing of the drone because it could have killed 150 people.

Fox News reporters Chris Wallace and Shep Smith on Friday cast doubt on President Donald Trump's claims about calling off a strike on Iran.

In a set of barely coherent and internally contradictory tweets on Friday, the U.S. president claimed that he had ordered the strikes in retaliation for the Iranian shootdown Thursday of a Navy RQ-4 Global Hawk spy drone that Tehran charged had violated its airspace. "If it's not military or something, there's got to be a cost to Iran-we have to send a message". As for the pseudo-left organizations that trace their origins to the Vietnam-era anti-war protests, all of them have made their accommodations with United States imperialism, promoting USA aggression in the name of "human rights".

The Enterprise asked Stefanik about Iran Thursday at the end of an interview on other topics, but she ended the phone conversation shortly after, saying she would discuss Iran later.

The Iran nuclear deal, from which Trump pulled the USA out, was also a show of good will on Iran's part that its nuclear program would always remain peaceful.

Mr. Trump said Iran also had a plane carrying 38 people on its sight but the country made the "very wise" decision not to shoot it down.

"The downing of the U.S. drone had an explicit, decisive and clear message that defenders of the Islamic Iran's borders will show decisive and knockout reactions to aggression against this territory by any alien", he said.

The growing pressure has hit the oil market, with Crude oil (CL=F) jumping over 12% since last week's low following Iran's suspected attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

Still, the Trump Administration has been on a collision course with Iran since withdrawing from the landmark nuclear deal a year ago. Based on "tradition in recent decades" under AUMF and War Powers, the OH lawmaker said Trump is authorized.

It's unclear whether Iran's national leadership approved of the strike, a fact that Trump apparently knew as well.

Trump says the crowd was blessed to be gathered during "a truly exciting time in America, in American history".

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman James Risch, who witnessed Trump's intense deliberation over whether to attack the Iranian sites, said Trump is a president who 'doesn't want to go to war'.

Tensions between Washington and Tehran reached a new level in recent days, stoking fears of a possible war between the two countries.

According to RT, the USA president also added that it was important to "start over" on the Islamic Republic, and rephrased his own campaign slogan, saying "let's make Iran great again".

"Dr Murrison will call for urgent de-escalation in the region and raise United Kingdom and global concerns about Iran's regional conduct and its threat to cease complying with the nuclear deal to which the United Kingdom remains fully committed".

Earlier in June, Trump had threatened to impose tariffs unless Mexico agreed to tighten its border and reduce the flow of migrants crossing illegally into the U.S. NPR's Carrie Kahn reported that the mission will be hard.
