Iran warns of risk of conflict, Trump sees scope for deal

DUBAI/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday he was not seeking war with Tehran after a senior Iranian military commander warned any conflict in the Gulf region could spread uncontrollably and threaten the lives of U.S. troops.

Tensions remain high after Trump said on Friday that he called off a military strike to retaliate for Iran's downing of an unmanned U.S. drone because it could have killed 150 people.

"I'm not looking for war," Trump said on NBC's Meet the Press program.

Trump has said he will impose further sanctions on Iran beginning on Monday, but has also indicated that he would be prepared to seek a deal to bolster its flagging economy, an apparent move to defuse tensions.


We had a deal. Trump tore it up.

In the mean time he fell in love with Kim Jong Un who has great big nukes.

Lesson learned. If you want respect from the dotard you need nukes.
