Iran Dominates in Iraq After U.S. ‘Handed the Country Over’ - The New York Times

"A truly dumb and costly war.  An invasion that killed at least 125,000 civilians. "From  Day 1,  Iran  saw  something  else:  a  chance  to  make  a  client state  of  Iraq,  a  former  enemy  against  which  it  fought  a  war  in  the  1980s so  brutal,  with  chemical  weapons  and  trench  warfare,  that  historians look  to  World  War  I  for  analogies.  If  it  succeeded,  Iraq  would  never again  pose  a  threat,  and  it  could  serve  as  a  jumping-off  point  to  spread Iranian  influence  around  the  region. In  that  contest,  Iran  won,  and  the  United  States  lost."
