Yesterday Iran shot down an American military drone. They said it was over Iranian waters, the United States military maintains it was well outside that line and in international waters. While both sides argue the point, you might be wondering what “we” are going to do about it. Good question.
When speaking to reporters yesterday, President Trump called Iran’s action “a very bad mistake” and mused that it could have been an accident. “I find it hard to believe it was intentional, if you want to know the truth,” he noted. “I think that it could have been somebody who was loose and stupid that did it.” And when pressed about the American response? President Trump added, "You'll soon find out." But perhaps not.
The “New York Times” is reporting that President Trump actually approved military strikes against Iran, but called them off at the last minute. No word as to why, but “The Times” says Trump gave the word to stand down as planes were in the air and ships in firing position. The strikes were set to target Iranian radar sites and missile batteries. It's unclear whether the strikes will go forward in the future.
