Maybe a better explanation is that Iran can retaliate where as Iraq couldn't.

Edit: Happy 2012 to Heather and Dan.
It's not clear to me how Iran could retaliate any more than Iraq. They both seem like sitting ducks to me, not necessarily a good reason for attacking them based on some "defence" rationale. Maybe you could explain. I guess you mean that Iran could help some terroist group to fire off a couple of rockets at Israel before it goes under.
