Iraq and Iran

Iran wants to wipe Israel from the face of the earth and make peaceful nuclear power. Funny isn't it that the world for some reason links both of these things together and things the Iranians might just be up to no good. The Americans and the Europeans are both not happy. Oil is sky rocketing and with the hardliners in charge in Iran and America it looks as things could get serious.
For the Americans it could very well be a tough fight. Firstly, they are stuck in Iraq for the forseeable future and are having problems mainly with the Sunnis. The Shittes are mostly quiet at the moment however that could easily change if Iran starts to stir them up. Iraq has already tied up most of their troops and if things start to get worse there they are going to need more.
Iran is four times the size of Iraq and has three times the population. If the west goes in full on, it will be the worst scenario any could think up. An unstable Afghanistan, a hostile Iran and an Iraq that is on the verge of civil war.
The Russians have got the best solution yet suggested. Iran gets nuclear power but they don't get to make the fuel. This is the only way I can see the situation from get way out of hand.
