BREAKING: Trump Orders Airstrikes on Iran, but Calls it off at the Last 10 Minutes
June 21, 2019 10:00AM
The United States was just 10 minutes away from starting a war with Iran and potentially cooking off World War 3. President Trump had ordered airstrikes on Iran, after Iran had shot down a U.S. RQ-4 Global Hawk Spy Drone that was flying over the Strait of Hormuz. The area in which it was shot down was declared to be international waters by the U.N. Iran seemed very quick to have a response, jingoistically claiming that they will not allow anyone to invade 'their' airspace. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo [Pictured-Left], and National Security Advisor John Bolton [Pictured-Right], both advised President Trump to start this war, with a swift response to the downing of the U.S. spy drone. However, within the last 10 minutes, President Trump asked:
"How many will die?" - President Trump
The answer to this question caused Trump to reconsider, re-evaluate, and call off the retaliatory attack, in which the planes were already in the air, ready to strike. These Neo-Cons, Pompeo & Bolton, nearly sent America into another war. It is a good thing that President Trump went with his gut feelings that obviously said this would be a bad idea after all. This was so close to potentially kicking off nuclear war, if not World War 3. Russian President Vladimir Putin said
People should breathe a little easier knowing that things have not popped off - yet...
