My Lady,

It is incorrect to say that the US has never attacked Iran. Remember US toppled the secularist Mohammad Mossadeq government in Iran in the 1950-s. The US backed the brutal shah regime in Iran which murdered and maimed countless Iranians.Israel is considered evil because of it's policies against Muslims in Palestine and Lebanon.That is why Iranians protest against US and Israel.

The Iranians have very close traditional,cultural and religious relations with Iraqi shias they see US-backed Saddam as their enemy and not the Iraqis. That is why you do not see any Iranians protesting against Iraqis.

Hope it clears your doubts.
