President Trump wants us to believe that he pulled back from bombing Iran because his military told him that about 150 Iranians would die, and that is not a proportional response for the shoot-down of a military drone. Even a very expensive one.
Trump doesn’t know anything about the military, but he does know Hollywood. And that scene is straight out of the American President.
He’s not wrong that the response would have been disproportionate. Especially since the drone the Iranians shot down most likely was flying over their territory.
It’s just that once again, Trump has created the “emergency” and then wants to take credit for solving it. Tried and tested by the President, over and over again.
