Correlation is not causation.

Also, some sectors of US capital were happy with the prospect of Iraq
invasion as it meant contracts for them for the reconstruction of
Iraq. In case of Iran, however, this is unlikely to be the case, as no
long-term physical occupation is likely being planned, and Iran will
probably give infrastructure reconstruction contracts, if any, to
Russia, China etc.  after (if) it is air-stricken.
