Amazon will implement whatever workaround is necessary to remain the internet's Walmart
I don't know if you wanted to be funny, but in Germany, Walmart came, saw and went home beaten. They never found the leverage to implement their business model in Germany, never became competitive, and finally gave up.
But only if the government is involved, it is all the fault of of the government, right?
Or: you are a liar.
But in general, the beam will hit the surface at lower angles, and then we have to multiply the energy with the sinus of the angle. So if it hits the surface at 45 degrees, only about 71% of the energy will be transferred, and we need to increase the laser beam another 40%. And at lower angles, there is total reflection, and 0% of the laser will be able to heat the surface, as 100% of the energy is reflected. In general: if we build a drone like a stealth bomber with a shell of plane, mirroring facettes, laser beams will be rendered totally ineffective except for the seldom case that they hit the drone's surface at 90 degrees with 10 times the necessary energy.
Giving a surface a reflective coating and polish it is a craft humanity knows since at least 2000 BC (that's about the age of the oldest mirror ever found). So I don't expect 1) to be valid in any sense.
And organisms can also evolve resistance to other poisons.
