We will need to be on guard. This could open a second front in the War on Terrorism; using asymmetric means to retaliate against an outside military hegemony. Even when the US obliterates the ability of Iran to project a challenge in conventionally, it would fair well for the underground Islamic World to adopt the plight of Iran in sympathy.
