The war cost high amounts of civilian casualties and military casualites, along with the destruction of Tel Aviv by an Iranian high-yield nuclear weapon.
Israel declared war on Iran, who had just made relations with the United States, saying that the US was influenced or feared of Iran's nuclear power.
Obama denounced this, saying: "Iran has made it for peaceful uses, why stop them!" This frusturated Israel, who later declared war on Syria.
The United States condemned it, as did the Security Council, but the United Kingdom supported Israel, followed by Turkey and Jordan. Iran was supported by Syria, who has lost the Golan Heights to Israel.
The United States did not get invovled, as the American Isolationist Party had gained much power with in the federal and state governments, leaving the four nations to fight alone.
Coalition and Supporters

India supported the Coalition, as India viewed Iran was an threat to India, and the civilized word of Southeast Asia. Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan never declared war on Iran, but supported the "liberation" of the Iranians from the brutal tyrants in the government of Iran. Saudi Arabia had its oil exports threatend by the shut down of the Strait of Hormuz, which over 20% of the world's oil passes through, which led to the support of the war. Most of the members of NATO supported the Coalition invasion, but many members, including Italy, opposed it. Mexico declared war, as Mexico City was threatened by Iran in an bombing. South Korea and Australia supported its allied, and viewed Iran as an threat to an civilized world.

The United States did not enter the war, as the American Isolationist Party had too much power in the government, and an majority of the people feel that Iran would turn into another Afghanistan. The world was shocked by this, as an majority of the world's nations thought that America would sure join the war.
The People's Republic of China and Russia did not join the war nor support either side. Chinese president Hu Jianto and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev saw not point in the war, besides the destruction of an extremist country.
