President Trump is being praised today by even some of his fiercest critics for his wise and measured response to Iran.
In particular, for overruling his Generals in the final 10 minutes to call off the airstrike on Iran.
In case you missed it, here was the series of Tweets our Commander in Chief sent out this morning to make the announcement:
Well done, Mr. President.

Do NOT let them pull you into a meaningless war!
Look, I'm no fan of Iran, but you know who I like even less? The Rothschilds and all their central banker shadow people always pulling the strings behind the scenes and luring us into war after war after war.
I'm not some pacifist either, I believe you build up the strongest military you possibly can, and use it when needed, but NOT when being pulled into a war by the central bankers.
Think I've got my tinfoil hat on?
Ok, let me present to you the top search result from Google when you ask it which countries do not have a central bank.
Here's the answer:
Oh my what a list!
It almost reads as a VERBATIM list of all the "hot spot" areas in conflict right now, doesn't it?
Just a coincidence I'm sure.
Got your attention? Want to dig deeper? Your next research project is the FF atack of the Gulf of Tonkin. Look it up and get back to me when you connect the dots between that event and the so-called Iranian attack on the oil tanker. They almost lack imagination, don't they?
Anyway, back to the topic at hand.
President Trump made the RIGHT decision and he's receiving high praise for it.
President Trump said he called off retaliatory strikes on three Iranian sites following the downing of a U.S. Navy drone because the action would not have been “proportionate.”
And just like that, President Trump’s stock goes soaring into the stratosphere. His actions in the heat of the downing of a US Navy drone by there terror-sponsoring state of Iran showed amazing poise, restraint and something the Liberals have always accused him of not having, presidential qualities. With his closest advisors and members of the Pentagon all telling him to strike, President Trump asked a simple question before giving his authorization for the strike. He asked “how many will die”? When he heard their answer, he simply said “no”.
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” Proverbs 29:2 (KJV)
President Trump is 100% right, the targeted killing of 150 souls is not a proper response for the downing of a Navy drone, even if that drone cost upwards of $130 million. It takes guts and courage to stand up and say no when all around you are telling you to do it. Thank you, President Trump, for showing us what real leadership looks like.
President Trump Scrapped Iran Strikes Because They Weren’t `Proportionate’
FROM YAHOO NEWS: “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,” Trump tweeted Friday. “10 minutes before the strike I stopped it.”
A commander in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps told a semi-official news agency Friday that the drone had been accompanied by a manned U.S. spy plane that Iranian forces decided not to target.
The planned U.S. attack, ordered after Iranian forces shot down a U.S. Navy drone over the Strait of Hormuz, would have involved airstrikes and was close to being carried out when it was stopped, said an administration official, who would not discuss whether the plan might still be revived. The official was granted anonymity to discuss a national security matter.
With tensions still high, the Iranians called the Swiss ambassador, Markus Leitner, into the Foreign Ministry for talks. The Swiss embassy also represents U.S. interests in Iran, and the Swiss envoy traditionally serves as the conduit for messages between the two nations, which have no diplomatic relations. But Brian Hook, the U.S. special representative for Iran, told reporters the Iranians “continue to reject diplomatic overtures to deescalate tensions in the region.”
In one of his Friday tweets, Trump said “I am in no hurry, our Military is rebuild, new, and ready to go, by far the best in the world.”
Airstrikes would have raised the specter of a far broader conflict in the volatile region, which supplies one-third of the world’s oil. The move and its reversal underscore the wavering approach the president has shown at times regarding military force. He has repeatedly and fiercely lashed out at Iran and North Korea, but then cooled his rhetoric when hostilities threatened to erupt into open conflict. On two occasions since he took office, he has ordered limited military strikes on Syria.
Even many Democrats are praising Trump, as reported by RollCall:
Some Democrats who met with Trump on Thursday praised Trump for opting not to escalate an already tense situation.
Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he had brought up the importance of being careful during the Thursday White House meeting that came before Trump’s decision to pull back from the strike on Iran.
“Yesterday, I made the point twice in the meeting that we have to be very cautious because we could be entering into an escalatory situation, and I think that logic ultimately had some effect on the decision,” Reed told CQ Roll Call. “I think when you look at — as the president apparently did — the casualties that would have been produced by the attack versus [losing a drone without casualties], I think he made a calculation that that would not seem to be proportional and would have caused difficulties not just with the Iranians but with … our allies.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she was pleased with the president’s decision.
“I don’t know how imminent the strike was, you hear different things,” she told reporters Friday. “But, a strike of that amount of collateral damage would be very provocative, and I’m glad the president did not take that.”
But for others, the incident highlighted how easily the situation could have put the two nations on a course for war.
“Whoever at the Pentagon or the White House advised the president that a proportional and limited response to the downing of a drone is 150 lives is either dumb, reckless or purposely trying to start a war,” Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., tweeted Friday.
Gallego, an Armed Services Committee member and Iraq War veteran, later added that war “should always be a last resort, and war with Iran is no different.”
Sen. Christopher S. Murphy, D-Conn., took to Twitter to express his incredulity. “The idea that an American president didn’t bother to ask about civilian casualties before ordering a massive military strike, getting around to it only 600 seconds before the attack was to begin, is mind boggling,” Murphy tweeted. “Don’t let this ever feel normal.”
Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., offered an alternative to launching a missile strike.
“I’d respond to Iran by turning off the power in the grid in the southern part of the country where the Iranian missile system is based,” said Moulton, a member of the Armed Services Committee who is also running for president. “You’d hear news of rolling blackouts in Iran; so would China, Russia, North Korea and others who are watching. Unfortunately, we have a weak and indecisive commander-in-chief with no strategy, and while some in our country may not believe that, our adversaries know it.”
And my friend Charlie Kirk summarized it nicely:
Look....did we give up anything?
We still hold all the cards.
We can strike at any time.
But President Trump didn't rush into a rash decision, he exercised caution and level-headedness.
You can bet your ass if HRC were President it would have been bombs-away and those 150 people might not be on the earth right now.
Well done, Mr. President, well done.
We here at WeLoveTrump applaud you!
