Trump confirms calling off strikes against Iran



Iran will respond firmly to any US threat against it, a spokesman of the country’s Foreign Ministry has said after President Donald Trump warned it of “obliteration” if a full-scale conflict would ensue.
Under pressure to respond to the high-stakes incident near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, Trump said the United States was prepared to hit “3 different sites” on Thursday night but that he scrapped the strikes “10 minutes” before it could happen.
Tensions between Tehran and Washington have spiked since Thursday when an Iranian missile destroyed a US surveillance drone. Tehran said the drone was shot down over its territory and Washington said it occurred in international airspace.

  1. Weldon Iran …
    Long life Iran …

  2. Funny people are forgetting than Iran is at fault here for shooting down a US drone furthering escalation. Your hate for Trump blinds you from seing the truth. Iran is walking on thin ice.. we don’t want war but if u push the buttons to far it will mean total inaliation of Iran. Some of you don’t understand the technology of the us military , you will be wiped out in minutes and won’t even know what happened. So be happy that Trump decided not to start ww3. Thank you president trump for doing what’s right.

  3. No need for diplomatic talk let their be war and let them see the consequences…..

  4. The red headed orangutang dotard finally wore his nappy!!!

  5. The USA : we can about the civillians of even other countries

    Me : Syria, North Korea, Vietnam, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, Venezuela etc???

  6. Its funny how iran been watching vessels come in and out those international waters

  7. Trump is so Islamophobic, racist, bigoted, tyrannical,…etc that he took 150 Iranian lives into account when considering the prospect of another globalist war

  8. Trumps speech is like theater or joking.

  9. Una vez más se ataca con una bandera falsa, lo que no perdonan a Irán es que no comercie con dólares.

  10. How did this third world get these fires arms

  11. Iranians government pr must let peace prevail at this time as whatever whatsoever they invent or produce ain't of much use as they can't sustain a prolong war against the USA

  12. Trump called off strike because he is afraid of the repercussion of Iran.! And many countries are watching this arrogant M.F.

  13. Thanks UK but tensions aleady de-escalated due to prudent actions of America. This time I am going to sleep well.

  14. When the Iranians find out the US capabilities to destroy the entire country, and slaughter its population, it will be too late.

  15. Good on IRAN now finish with destroying the yanky terrorist navy and teach the bastards in Washington a lesson they won't forget

  16. Hardliners in Iran eventually made fun of USA in their Friday prayers and swearing as usual "being the evil". Nothing Diplomatic! Mullahs are destructive and the clergy from hundreds of years ago to seek mankind destruction. This is the overall picture. If their citizens are siding with them will eventually pay the ultimate price not necessarily by USA but some other country as the Mullah's regime imposes its bi-faced ideology on others. They believe in the end of the world so as Israel and world war III people. Whoever is following this agenda from the so called biblical prophecies or the Quran, is a complete fool and on both sides seeking the destruction of themselves and this planet. Truth hurts, but truth is the truth.

  17. I really appreciate President Trump.
    He has a soft heart unlike presidents before

  18. Follow my channel for soccer news

  19. Hahaha very funny Usa and Israel

  20. Imagine iran winning and removing the rats nest from Israel 🇮🇱

  21. America and specially their high leadership like ' Bolton' and other establishment department are addicted of war…..
    So let's start good bye to war let's join hand together for green earth, let's make this planate safe and much better than expectations…..
    We all are humans and must solve issue through diplomacy rather than conflicting with each other…
    A message for Trump Iran and KSA.

  35. there's an ommitted word, thousands, after one hundred fifty.

  36. UST: united states of Terrorism

  37. yanks called it an unprovoked attack lmao so i guess when you send in a couple of spy planes this is not a provocative act then?

  38. Starting another war is not wise before the next election, even dumb Trump knows that.

  39. We can believe Iranian general statement…but does really US care about 150 people……!

  40. FROM PAUL, YOU CAN'T LIE TRUMP FOREVER! YOU KNOW WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON.
