Food for thought:
Proponents of going to war with Iran (aka the same neoconservatives who brought us the Iraq debacle) have been making the (tacit) argument that Iran is interfering in Iraq and thus is itself at war with America already so we would be justified in bombing Iran.
Noam Chomsky has pointed out that this is not a standard that we would hold ourselves to. For example, in the 80s Russia could accurately state that the U.S. was interfering in Afghanistan, yet we would not say that gave Russia the right to bomb the U.S.
