3:50 am
meanwhile iran says it chose not to target a manned u.s. spy plane which was traveling close behind a drone in iranian airspace several international airlines have rooted their flight paths in the gulf after the u.s. federal aviation administration ordered all u.s. operators to avoid iranian airspace from washington alan fischer now reports. this was the reason the u.s. was prepared to launch an attack the doning of an unmanned military drawn by iran. these pictures are said to be the missile launch which are really in television says was filmed by the islamic republic's revolutionary guards the u.s. said the drone was over international waters a claim disputed by to iran donald trump says while 3 sites had been identified for strikes he cancelled the operation they came in they censor were ready to go we'd like a decision i said i want to know something before you go how many people will be
3:51 am
killed. in this case or a means i said how many people are going to be killed. so i'd like to get back to you on that great people these generals they said they came back said sir approximately 150 and i thought about it for a 2nd i said you know what they shut down and on and. drone plane whatever you want to call it and here we are sitting with $150.00 dead people and that would have taken place probably within a half an hour after i said go ahead and i didn't like it i didn't think it was i didn't think it was proportionate and terror and the revolutionary guard put on a display of what it said was wreckage from the u.s. drone recovered in a really intended trick the head of its space division claims a manned u.s. spy plane near detroit was not targeted that i will learn at the same moment when the aircraft was being tracked another spy aircraft called p 8 was flying close to
3:52 am
this drone that aircraft is man and has around 35 crew members where we could have targeted that plane it was our right to do so and yes it was american but we didn't do it we hit the unmanned aircraft. well secretary of state is heading to the region to talk to. the united arab emirates the u.s. special representative in iran has been bryan who promised the u.s. would continue to exert maximum economic and diplomatic pressure on iran our diplomacy does not give iran the right to respond with military force in iran needs to meet diplomacy with diplomacy and not military force iran's foreign ministry responded saying diplomacy with diplomacy respect with respect and war with zealous defense the rise in tension in the region has led a number of international airlines to cancel or divert flights away from the area
3:53 am
america's federal aviation administration says in the statement because of heightened military activity it is banning all u.s. carriers from operating in the gulf region a situation it says it's keeping under review alan fischer washington those are your bari has been following developments in tehran we heard from the head of iran's revolutionary guard aerospace division who put on this play bits and pieces that were found there retrieved after this phone went down and they put this these pieces on this play for the needy and this is where this military ever revolutionary guard commander said that they actually had a 2nd plane within the iranian air space that had 35 people on board but it was a military plane and that the iranians gave warning so that plane and that plane did listen to those warnings and turned around and left the iranian airspace there
3:54 am
is a lot more detail that has unfolded as has come out today let's get more on this now with patty call hane who is at the pentagon and patty of when you learn any more about why president truong called off the strike against the iranians. well the president just said and you heard him right there give the interview and he said that you know he asked right before ok how many casualties are going to be in that he said the general said let me get back to you on that not to put a finer point on this but that's not really how this works it's not as if the military goes to the president with strike options and then says how how many people are going to be dead only get back to you on that but the president says that that's what happened he said $150.00 people were simply too many we believe that they were going to strike the plan was to strike a missile sites missile batteries some radar sites but the pentagon not confirming that here but again the way the president describing the process is not how anyone who has ever been close to this process and past presidencies have said it works
3:55 am
usually they go to the president in the situation room a secure room and they lay out a series of options each of the options has the potential casualty count and the president makes that choice from here. the president saying that that's what happened that he asked for a casualty count the very last minute they came back to him said 150 people and he said that's too many so the pentagon obviously not going to dispute that here because again this is a pentagon very much in flux this is the last day for the acting secretary of defense he's leaving there's going to be a new one coming in so this is a building transition and really just trying to keep up with the president and this is a president to has his eye very much on 2020 being reelected he seems to be torn between this need to. be aggressive on the international stage but also wanting to avoid any more sort of foreign entanglements. exactly this is a president who is very clearly caught between 2 factions we've seen the
3:56 am
republicans the really the more hawkish republicans some of his usual allies come out and say this is ridiculous now he looks weak they're sending him that message constantly on his favorite television news program at the same time you're seeing some commentators come out and say this is just the deep state this is these are the people you can't trust they're trying to get you into a war with iran which will cost you reelection and we know that this president cares about being reelected and it is true he said during the campaign trail that look i opposed the iraq war although there's very much of it is that he did but that was one of his big selling points is stuff for the money in foreign wars overseas spend that money here at home his base and he knows this would be hugely disappointed if he was to get the u.s. entailed in another much more complicated war in the middle east so he's hearing from those close to him that he looks weak which is something he hates he's also hearing from some advisers that if he does this he can pretty much say goodbye to his 2nd term thank you very much with the latest from the pentagon there patty call
3:57 am
hey well say it is from the department of international politics so i asked university of london joins me in the studio now and so the president has certainly said that he doesn't intend to have a war with iran developments over the past 24 hours suggest that he is prepared to have one how might the iranians be this well. we need to see woman one thing is very important then the military rhetorics military threats of president trump have littered the dialogue between the 2 nations in other words there is one understand the white house in the white house that they can pressurize iran to give more concessions and this means but they didn't read the correct book because. the history shows that wherever iran is on the pressure
3:58 am
or on the threats they will react in a unified way. having victory by a military victory by united states in other words despite a massive firepower is literally impossible so i assume there is a confusion in the white house about to what extent they can continue this kind of irrational threats how iran will react are they likely but what what might iran the next step be because they have now said that there was a manned aircraft behind the drone that they shot down and they deliberately chose to to leave that aircraft alone does that suggest that the iranians might prefer deescalation at this point in time now that president trump has shown his hand well in the from the very beginning when they were they want they were actually advocating deescalation jacey puree and signature itself shows that iran
3:59 am
has been willing for the escalations and he did give enormous amount of wristlets a concession the point is even when you read the cultivations from the leaderships in iran you can see they literally say they are not looking for any conflict with any nation one thing is very important this is united states military forces far away from military a far way from the united states soil and perhaps you could say that of course there's a dispute about where precisely this drone was shot down the iranians are saying that it violated their own as space but just the fact that they chose to take that step of shooting down the drone was an escalator tory pleasure no it was a message it was a massive to say iran is powerful is unified. sides and is not bowing to any military threats or hawkish rhetorics so is
4:00 am
a massive to say they are ready to defend the integris briefly what do they do now because obviously we know that there have been these leaks about a possible military strike that sends a message to the iranians also trump has been in communication with the nominees as well saying that in a perhaps are the 2 sides going to use this sort of window to kickstart some sort of diplomacy in iran's very difficult position because they are being squeezed economically and diplomacy is in their interests well iran have been squeezed season 79 so this is not new the sanctions are not new on iran the point is there are always ready to defend the integrity and actually any kind of military threats will unify the nation what may happen is i see a kind of a confusion the white house so not sure if this is psychological warfare to say they called it off.
