Iran isn't Syria. It's a major power, with a tin-horn president, whose people don't really hate us. We are facing a cold war, but can we afford to create a future military (as opposed to current geo-political) enemy? The argument goes "our children won't forgive us for not taking care of this now" but Iran, and its ability in the future to ramp up another nuclear program, can't be eliminated by us now. Better to establish an anti-missile and fool-proof second strike capability, along with a firm policy of treating any attack from an Iran proxy as one from Iran.
