I would expect that the Iraqis would want to draw us into this since I'm guessing the Iraqi army can't provide a credible deterrent to Iranian encroachment.

It's one thing for an emboldened client to withhold favors owed to a weakened patron, but quite another for a vulnerable client to eschew any help from a patron when the client is dealing with a more powerful rival.

Does the SOFA require the US to defend Iraq's territorial integrity?
