The report also says that as long as the middle east remains unstable, or grows more unstable, Iran will continue to benefit.
The report, by researchers at think-tank the Royal Institute for International Studies in London – also known as Chatham House – says: “There is little doubt that Iran has been the chief beneficiary of the war on terror in the Middle East.
“The United States, with Coalition support, has eliminated two of Iran’s regional rival governments – the Taliban in Afghanistan in November 2001 and Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq in April 2003 – but has failed to replace either with coherent and stable political structures.”
Furthermore, rather than pulling the Iraqi people closer to the US, the invasion of Iraq has left Iran "the most influential power in Iraq."
