President Trump says he called off Iran strikes after asking his top Generals how many people would die. His Generals reported that an estimated 150 people would die if he called for a strikes on Iran.
“We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights,” Trump tweeted. “When I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General.” President Trump said.
As I have stated before, it seems as if National Security Adviser, John Bolton is the one who is whispering in Trump’s ear, telling him that a war with Iran is a good idea. Bolton has been an advocate for a war with Iran for a very long time. Most people would consider Bolton to be a warhawk. Time will only tell if Trump gives in to Bolton’s advice. As of right now, Trump is not in favor of war with Iran although tensions have reached a boiling point. Politically, a war with Iran would be political suicide for Trump.
