The US troops can be withdrawn into heavily defended bases quickly enough.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.
