Bush didn't just invade Iraq to depose of Saddam even though that was the pretext, it WAS to set up permanent bases there to counter any Iranian threats, even if the Shiites controlled Iraq. Iraq is the most logistical to counter any and all threats in the area the same way Germany was for Europe.

Why counter Iranian threats, when the mullahs' regime could've been and still can be completely removed ? Isn't & wasn't that a better & more logical way?

I don't recall Iran being a threat to any country, at least not for 50 yrs before the mullahs (Khomeinist) regime came to power in 1979.
