The exact same thing can happen with Iran. Nukes or not. Threat or not. Legality or not. It doesn't matter when it comes to the USA's foreign policy. If the USA wants to invade Iran, it will do so. We have seen in the very recent past that this is the case. All you need to do is look at Iraq.
There is no reason to conclude that the USA won't invade Iran simply because the Iraq invasion turned out so badly. The USA has shown its willingness to forego any diplomatic or even logical solutions when dealing with foreign nations they are targeting.
