  • Trump calls off retaliation against Iran: strategy or change of heart?

    France 24 international affairs commentator Douglas Herbert remarks that "the Trump whisperers," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton, likely played a role in US President Donald Trump's decision to call off the military strike on Iran at the last minute. "Trump is a man of Fox News," Herbert added, "and two of those hosts may have had some influence on him" as well. Trump himself stated in a Tweet on Thursday, "We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone. I am in no hurry, our Military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go, by far the best in the world."
