Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The US troops can be withdrawn into heavily defended bases quickly enough.

The heavily armed bases can be pounded by medium range missiles easily enough.

Militarily, this can only be a disaster.

You have a poorly equipped and significantly demoralised army with very fragile supply lines in the middle of hostile territory, surrounded by guerillas, next to a hostile state with long-range force projection opportunities, which also has the potential to control one of the most significant resource supply choke points on the planet.

I'm guessing, on some wild speculation, that a resounding victory seems unlikely.
