US, Iran voice resolve in brinkmanship, say war not soughtThe United States and Iran said Tuesday they were not seeking war with each other as tensions simmered between the two in the Persian Gulf and President Donald Trump vowed the U.S. would respond to any attack. “We have a lot of things going with Iran,” Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a campaign event in Florida. Trump’s comments came just hours after he announced the sudden departure of acting Pentagon chief Patrick Shanahan, jolting the Defense Department only a day after he signed off on sending an additional 1,000 troops to the Middle East to counter Iran.
