During Vietnam and Korea there were no other major threats
well thats pretty much a load of shit, ever heard of the COLD WAR????
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_War
The Cold War was the period of conflict, tension and competition between the United States and the Soviet Union and their allies from the mid 1940s until the early 1990s.
There were repeated crises that threatened to escalate into world wars but never did, notably the Korean War (1950-1953), the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962), and the Vietnam War (1964-1975). There were also periods when tension was reduced as both sides sought détente. Direct military attacks on adversaries were deterred by the potential for massive destruction using deliverable nuclear weapons.
the U.S. supported the South Vietnamese government against North Vietnam, which was backed by the Soviet Union and China. (Byrd)

or perhaps a nuclear war that would end the world wasn't a threat?

and Vietnam and Korea are big countries, that most people know about. Iraq isn't that big a country and really didn't get a lot of notice up until the possible nuclear threats.
and your point is.....?

Another place to invade could be Iraq's supplier of weapons, Iran. And to end, WWI and WWII were completely different
So, your saying that some how attacking Iraq was a bad idea because we have so far been unsuccessfully in really creating a free state that is democratic and peaceful, so we should instead have tried to attack Iran, the mother of all Islamic Fascist republics and that would have worked out better??

Also if you know your history you would know that in WWI the US didn't enter until the end of the war because they thought that Europe had its own problems and they should deal with them on their own. We didn't attack until it looked like the British and French would loose and Russia had already succumbed to revolution. Also America refused to enter the Japanese side of WWII untill we were attacked at pearl harbor.
