The Trump administration is showing restrain against Iran in response to the downing of a Navy drone. There are very few details about why did the administration take this decision.
The administration contemplated taking down Iranian missile batteries and radars, and planes where in the air and ships in position when the attack was called off.
In an attempt to take credit, Rep. Adam Schiff (D), said that the president is listening to congressional leaders who are urging caution. Previously Trump told reporters that Iran made a “very big mistake” but also said that this may be the result of someone being “loose and stupid” rather than a deliberate provocation by Iran, so we know that Trump was being cautious regardless.
In the meantime clueless AOC is asking for the US to start negotiating with Iran.
