Except of course they aren't...
All sorts of small, and many times DIY, drones are buzzing around and in VERY active use by both sides in Ukraine.
If you genuinely believe that we have the means and equipment to make these useless, why are these systems not being used now in any number of hot
spots around the globe with active US SOCOM operations and presence?
Truthfully, the systems of today are almost completely optimized to ignore this threat class so we don't waste millions or billions in ammunition
shooting down birds and the like.
Also, many times we'd be degrading too many capabilities we depend on more than our enemies do.
Frankly I see a lot of western internet posters who are in advanced states of cognitive dissonance or outright impairment on military technology
topics. On one hand they have a perverse and unfounded certainty that western militaries are so technologically advanced and etc that they believe no
one can hope to challenge us in a military operation at everything from the individual to the national level. While at the same point not being
willing to dedicate resources to R&D or acquisitions even to deal with new and emerging threats.
Truthfully, the world has not stood still in the last two decades, and we haven't kept up in areas like this, especially on the defensive end...
