Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Going after Iran before neutralising Iraq would have left Iraq able to play games in Saudi Arabia. And the Americans are really protective about Saudi Arabia.

That, and the fact that even the most braindead Washington paper-pusher would have realised that Iran would kick the Americans' butts before they got two hundred km into the country.
