Key on your last two words here.

You obviously believe that you're smarter than the actual military professionals who worked on this problem every one of whom apparently had never seen an actual balloon before. You believe if you had been sent up there on a paraglider with a nail on the end of a stick you could have brought it down for $300. You believe if you could just get your brilliant ideas out there to the People In Charge rather than in Reddit comments the world would run smoothly.
