World War III postponed until 2015

Although the headline U.S. to Provide Israel With 20 Joint Strike Fighters is somewhat alarming, given that these planes are known to have the edge over the Russian-made Iranian S-300 missile defence shield, I suppose we can rest assured that the delivery date stated in the article ("between 2015 and 2017") means that any earlier pre-emptive strike by Israel would meet with a devasting barrage of anti-aircraft fire?

Each S-300 can track a hundred targets at once and lock in and destroy 12 of them - from each missile. Iran is believed to have about 300 of them.
