Post James Webb Space Telescope Delays

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST or "Webb") is a space telescope that will be the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. The JWST will provide greatly improved resolution and sensitivity over the Hubble, and will enable a broad range of investigations across the fields of astronomy and cosmology. One of its major goals is observing some of the most distant events and objects in the universe, such as the formation of the first galaxies. These types of targets are beyond the reach of current ground- and space-based instruments. Other goals include understanding the formation of stars and planets, and direct imaging of exoplanets and novas.
We all know that JWST will be placed in Earth-Sun Largrange Point 2. If the JWST will have any technical fault, it will never be fixed. So JWST is under three phases: Test, launch and deploy. So I have a question in the poll.
