Iran was never in a position to take over Iraq. Iran was attacked by Iraq first. The thought of Iran taking over Iraq is a paranoid one. So was the domino theory during the cold war and also the idea that Saddam had WMD that could be deployed in 45 minutes. When I was in primary school our teacher discussed the terrifying hypothetical situation of a US president going mad. It now seems that such situations are not so hypothetical. The impeachment proceedings against Clinton, the election of Bush before all votes in Florida were counted and the recall vote in California suggest that in the US sane decent leaders are not tolerated.
