Iran attack abort: What the holy hell?

According to the Boston Globe, Trump called off the Iran strike 10 minutes before it happened because he was told about 150 people would die, and he didn't think an "unmanned drone" was worth killing people.

The shocking thing here is that Donald Fucking Trump, the Electoral College's pick for president in 2016, apparently didn't know "military action" would actually kill anyone.

I smell Putin here, folks. The United States is weaker today because we have the president we do, and has been neutered by that ugly, foot-too-long-waistcoat scumbag announcing to the world he just rattles sabers.

4. Only an idiot like Trump would believe there'd be 150 killed

Trump's foolish brinksmanship would escalate quickly into a horrific bloodbath

5. The 150 was just in the initial strike

Problem is, the Iranians have missiles that can sink a surface ship. They WOULD answer us blowing up their shit with them blowing up ours.

As an aside, I'm pretty damned impressed by the Iranian arms industry. A Global Hawk (the UAV they shot down) is about the size of a Boeing 737-200 (look up pictures of the RQ-4; this thing is huge) and it flies as high as one. I had no idea they had a missile that can kill an airliner in flight.

10. I believe Iran is very capable

and looking at the shootdown video it's hard to say but it seems like it was pretty close to land.

7. The reason is pure PR.

This is a man who puts babies in concentration camps. He could care less how many people strikes would kill. More likely he was told of dire consequences in terms only a 5year old would relate to.

8. Anyone who wants to take healthcare away from millions,

separates families,puts kids in cages etc.would not care if 150 people get killed. Putin is behind this.
