Think of South West Asia as a game of Jenga as an example, take out the wrong piece and the whole thing collapses. Iraq is that piece. Quite frankly the US is irrelevant except that it has expedited a new configuration of the existing states in South West Asia by overthrowing Saddam.

Iran stands to gain everything.
