 File under: Govt of Iran 

#1 Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a rallying cry to Iran’s armed forces. "Increase your power as much as you can, because your power scares off the enemy and forces it to retreat," Khamenei said at a graduation ceremony for military cadets in the Caspian port city of Nowshahr.

Yes, if you're the supreme leader of an islamic state bent on overthrowing everything, you might want to really push warfare for your benefit.

This is a popular escape for failing dictatorships that has happened many times in the last century (generally in a non-religious context, the Iran instance is unique), notably in Asia, Cuba, Nicaragua and now Valenzuela. However the populace of both Iran and Iraq might disagree, as they might not want to be pulled further into a religious battle for an odd ideology.
