    A lot of people got dead based on the faith that it would be illogical for nation X to start war Y. Countries can go to war on emotion not reason.  So there are any number of reasons why Iraq might see Iran's military mobilized and heading west.

    The bottom line is a nation has to have a credible ability to secure its borders. Iraq will not have that ability until it has its own air force and something more than a small-arms army.  Given their neighborhood, I think we are entering very delicate times.
