    Do you mean overland attack by airplanes? As in using Iraqi airspace, or do you actually mean IDF going through Iraq on foot and into Iran? If it's the latter, good thing you're not in charge. For IDF to do that they would have to go through Jordan, which Amman will never allow. If by some miracle it did, you would have to go through Iraq, where IDF would be viewed as an aggressor and attacked on sight by everyone; Shia, Sunni, opponents of Iran, sympathizers of Iran, young and old. And if IDF somehow managed to pass through that hell, they would arrive into Iran, outnumbered, exausted, with no knowledge of local terrain, with vulnerable supply lines stretching hundreds of kilometers, and virtually no air support due to range limitations. It would be massacre. Every country in the ME would strike at Israel. I can't believe you actually gave this idea any thought. If majority of Israelis fantasize like this, no wonder you scream war.
