Only you are forgetting that Iran learnt from the Israeli attack on the Orak reactor, and that is to build more than one facility, and have them
spaced across Iran.
Take into consideration that Iran is a rather big country, and that is a lot of targets over a wide area to contemplate for any attacker.
Not only alot of destruction and death in Iran, but increases the risk of the crews of any warplanes that would be involved, when taken into further
consideration still, of Iran's reported air defence assets.
More targets = more casualties.
More targets=more risky attack
Iran would not take it lying down like Iraq (busy at the time in a bloody and costly war on Iran) who decided not to try to open a new front with
Israel in retaliation, probably because if they had, the US, one of their primary backers in the war on Iran, would probably not be too pleased and
stop their support, and Israel would retaliate in turn as well.
In conclusion, comparing the Israeli attack on Iraq, to an attack on Iran militarily and in consequential terms favourably is just not a good idea,
because you can't.
So let's not go there.
