I would imagine the first assualt would be conducted with massive amounts of weapons like US tomahawk and French/British Storm Shadow cruise missiles. This would likely cripple Iran Airforce and the best part of Irans air defense. Then weapons like the B-2 would destroy remaining hardened targets. Coalition air dominance would be in inevitable.
The ground war could then be waged on two different fronts in a classic pincer maneuver never something you want to be in as a defender.
I dont really invison this ever happening on this scale. I could really see ore of a Massive airstrike with weapons like I mentioned on Irans nuclear sites if worst came to worse.

Hom many UN resolutions did Iraq Not comply with? How many times was Iraq given another chance? If the Invasion was not legal under a UN mandate why have'nt the USA or Britain or any other members of the coallition been dragged before the UN for an illegal war???
