Very unlikely.  The current justification, and I believe the fundamental
one all along, from the Bush administration for invading Iraq is to
bring democracy and freedom to the Middle East so as to drain the swamp
that has produced so many terrorists.  If Iraq goes to hell, then the
Iraq invasion can only be seen as a failure and therefore a failure of
the Bush administration.  The UN has never been a favoured institution
for most of those who support Bush.  If Iraq goes to hell under the
watch of the UN, Bush would be blamed for turning Iraq over to the UN in
the first place.  Can you imagine Bush in the days before the election,
with Iraq in flames, claiming that the U.S. is safer because of the
invasion?  No, Bush et al have an interest in ensuring that Iraq
prospers even if it is under the UN watch.
