The 9/11 commission is claiming that Iran has assisted al-Qaeda in the past. So if we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, why are we not invading Iran?

Well, I can think of a couple of reasons:

(1) Afghanistan and Iraq were easier to invade than Iran.

(2) There are the seeds of a popular uprising in Iran, unlike in Afghanistan and Iraq. Maybe we can try to assist the student protestors and democracy advocates first.

"Attack everybody" and "attack nobody" are not the only two options in military foreign policy.
