You are the one who noted that Iran is a threat. So was Saddam. Would it not be better if both Iraq and Iran had the kind of quasi-democracy that Iraq has today, and no nukes, as opposed to a brutal dictator with ambitions on controlling the world's oil supplies who could possibly have nukes by now, and a theocracy bent on bringing on the apocalypse that almost certainly does have them?

Iran is a threat if they completely takeover Iraq.
Iran would not be as much of a threat if they were caught up in daily struggles with Iraq.
Playing Russia against China worked for us then. Playing the Sunnis against the Shiites could work for us now.
Of course I'm supposed to believe the cockamamie neocon drivel that there is some sort of Islam-wide conspiracy to institute a worldwide caliphate.
I choose, however, to remain in the real world.
