A national security expert revealed to The London Times that the Pentagon has "drawn up plans for massive airstrikes against 1,200 targets in Iran, designed to annihilate the Iranians’ military capability in three days."
According to the paper, one Washington source said the "temperature was rising" to launch an Iranian attack inside the Bush administration.
Israel has said if the United States back downs, it is "ready to attack."
the Pentagon’s plans for military action involve the use of so much force that they are unlikely to be used and would seriously stretch resources in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Didnt Bush say he would not tolerate a nuclear North Korea?
USA will just bomb the crap out of Iran then sit back and laugh as another helpless country crumbles.

I'd say baring some major concession by Iran, this quite likely to happen.
Either way, a nuclear Iran is not something the western world should want left alone.
