Details

In October 2008 Robertson posted a press release on the Georgian Conflict speculating that the conflict is a Russian ploy to enter the Middle East, and that instability caused by a predicted pre-emptive strike by Israel on Iran would result in Syria and Iran launching nuclear strikes on other targets.

He also said that if the United States were to oppose Russia's expansion, nuclear strikes on American soil are also pending:

"We will suffer grave economic damage, but will not engage in military action to stop the conflict. However, we may not be spared nuclear strikes against coastal cities. In conclusion, it is my opinion that we have between 75 and 120 days before the Middle East starts spinning out of control."

Explanation

None of what Pat Robertson predicted actually happened (which is typical of him). If you want to know more, see the Wikipedia article on the 2008 South Ossetia War:
