After 9/11, as soon as the U.S. started intimating it would go into Afghanistan to pusue al Queda, the Taliban stated they would round up and hand every al Queda supporter in the country to us gift-wrapped if we didn't invade. That is documented. As for the war in Iraq - all that accomplished was destroying the balance of power - Iraq stymied anything Iran contemplated. You must be a shareholder in Haliburton.
