The P-8 anti-submarine, anti-surface warfare aircraft "was also violating our airspace and we could have downed it too", said Brig.

Brigadier General Hajizadeh told state TV that the main reason for shooting down the drone, which marked a serious escalation in tensions with the U.S., was to force the American P-8 military aircraft to divert course, according to Iranian media. In an op-ed in 2015, then-Michigan Republican Rep. Dave Trott said sanction relief would add up to somewhere between $50 billion and $150 billion.

Iran acknowledged that it shot down the drone, saying the craft had strayed into the nation's airspace.

It did not, however, have the support of the hawkish conservatives who were influencing Trump, and now one of those super hawks, John Bolton, is the president's national security adviser. He also suggested that shooting down the drone was a foolish mistake instead of a planned effort to worsen relations between the countries.

The canceled attack comes after Iran shot down a USA drone flying in global air space over the Strait of Hormuz and reportedly attacked several commercial vessels transiting the waterway.
