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 but warned them against obtaining a nuclear weapon.
