don't worry about the S300 - its already got a counter weapon system.
if need be, it can be removed with relative ease and without losses to the air force attacking them.
provided, of course, that the one doing the removing was committed to an all out war and not a single on shot strike against specific targets (which is the only reason why its a concern right now).

they were up against Iraq last time.
not a modern western army like the US army.
desert storm showed just how poorly trained, equipped, and demoralized Iraq's army was, and that war between Iran and Iraq lasted for years. (albiet, with western support for Iraq)
