Edit - side note, this of course is my own opinion and should be viewed as such

America has already warned Israel about attacking people: Wall
IF they did, the US will just stand back, as will every other country in the world, letting them fight it out. The only time the world powers will
step up is if WMD's are used, in which case:
If its Israel - Russia will step in for Iran and America will sit idly by.
If its Iran - America & probably the EU will jump in, leaving Russia and China to sit idle.
Of course the opposing forces will saber rattle, but nothing will eventuate.
Strategically speaking, if the major powers got into a fight (Russia & America), while they are busy, it leaves other developing nations to their own
devices and they will probably start expanding their borders by force. IE - China would expand and eat the Korea's, and probably Thaiwan, which no
doubt would caust the dessolution of the JSSDF to become the Japanese Military, which in turn they would strike at China to liberate the Korea's.
Indonesia would probably make a failed attempt to invate Australia, the reason it would fail is AU is a hard place to invate, its a logistical
nightmare, plus the local population will get a tad feral. So after that, the Feral population of AU would be screaming for blood, and probably go at
Indonesia head on, which in turn we would probably use the EU & US forces on our soil to support the ADF.
All in all in the end it would result in a war on multiple fronts, with multiple agressors and many sorched earth policies.
(Please note I'm Australian
, and by Feral i mean the local population is likely to take up arms and retaliate in an unconventional manner)
