Trump Describes Iranian Missile Attack as 'Standing Down' | Breitbart: President Donald Trump described Iran’s attack on Iraqi bases hosting U.S. troops Tuesday night, in which there were 15 missiles fired but no American casualties, as a decision by Iran to stand down.
The unusual description of a military operation both explained the Iranian regime’s apparent decision not to strike American targets directly, and the Trump administration’s decision not to retaliate again.
I’m pleased to inform you: The American people should be extremely grateful and happy no Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe, and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases.
Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.
