|Trump Proved That He is a Mature And Far-Sighted Leader by Calling Off The Strike Against Iran|
|keywords: President Trump War Iran Calling Off The Strike|
Last Friday, President Trump prevented the US from getting involved in yet another war in the Middle East, which would have cost us tens of billions of dollars and American lives.
A careful analysis of the current geopolitical situation tells us that the President made the right decision.
How It Unfolded
Last week, Iran preemptively shot down an unmanned US surveillance drone in international waters. While tensions between the two countries have been escalating for a while, shooting down the drone was seen as an act of aggression by many.
In retaliation, the US troops were ready to launch an airstrike at three different sites in Iran. At the last minute, when he was told that at least 150 people would die as a result of the strike, President Trump decided to call it off.
Later, Trump explained that he called off the strike because he felt that killing 150 people over an unmanned drone seemed like a disproportionate response.
Why the Decision Makes Sense
There are several reasons why the President’s decision makes perfect sense.
We have already put tremendous pressure on Iran through our economic sanctions. If we continue to impose the sanctions for a few more years (or just another year), Iran would have no option but to admit its defeat and accept our demands. At the same time, we should be prepared to launch a devastating attack if Iran tries to escalate things further.
On the whole, when it comes to the Middle East, Trump has made the right decisions so far. Let us hope Iran realizes its follies and comes to the negotiation table soon.
But because America is so energy strong now and even getting stronger, soon America will not even have to be in the Persian Gulf. Nonetheless, regardless, Iran can never own a nuclear weapon or be able to develop them.
It’s pathetic that Bill Clinton allowed Pakistan to obtain nuclear weapons.
