so what did Israel bomb in 1981? sand? Iraq was being closely watched and threatened by the US military. There was no way the sanctions against Iraq could have continued much longer back in 2002.

I dont see the evidence for that. Sure seems like there have been fewer terror attacks against western targets in the last few years than prior.

I still dont know what that means. "... We ( meaning the red state american military ) ought to concentrate anti terror efforts on Pakistan. ..." Targeted assassination? Capture and torture? or just endless meddling and pontificating by US Senators?

why contain the country when you said they never had a nuke program?

Iran had a nuke program. For that reason alone Saddam would have started one of his own. The problem with containment is it could not be sustained politically for much longer than 2002. How do you get the UN to go along with continued containment when Iran is not subject to containment?

Better to invade Iraq and then apply international pressure on Iran to discontinue the nuke program it had no justification for.
