Trump cancelled order on Iran strike after learning there would be casualties.

It was unclear why Mr. Trump would have been getting information about possible casualties so late in the process of launching military action. Such information is typically discussed early in the deliberations between a president and national security officials.

The planned strike was all a ruse, a feint, a fake attack from the beginning. Merely a setup to have the Iranians turn on and light up their anti aircraft missile installations for the U.S. Navy to discover what they have. I doubt that Trump cared one way or the other about the causalities.

Do you really think the warmongers care about casualties and would bring that up when trying to get Donald to go to war? Kudos to Trump for turning on his warmonger advisors and doing the right thing. The odd thing is: both the left and the neoconservative right say he did the wrong thing calling off the strikes.
