In a series of tweets in the past few minutes, president Trump explained why the attack on Iran did not happen last night.  As he Tweeted here:

“On Monday they shot down an unmanned drone flying in International Waters. We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not……proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone. I am in no hurry, our Military is rebuilt, new,  and ready to go, by far the best in the world. Sanctions are biting & more added last night. Iran can NEVER have Nuclear Weapons, not against the USA, and not against the WORLD!”

But, our questions about the disclosures of timing, targets, and more are still open.  Who authorized their release?

Gosh, but this is sure going to muck-up the plans of the Trump-haters to cast the CiC as a nutjob/cowboy.  Seem proportionate response is a fine choice of tactics.

Small EMP (conventionally pumped chemical EMP) anyone?

You didn’t know the .mils have things like “Explosively pumped flux compression generators?”  Tisk, tisk.
