Which interceptor can stop SR-71?

Cold war, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm - up to and including for example the A-10, F-15, Mirage 200, MiG-29, and F-18.

Because there were so few SRs operating at any given time, it was essentially a custom built system where cost was almost no object. It would have been extremely effective against anything coming against it during its operational career, and I am including the1990s.

Somethings about the SR-71 are still cloaked in secrecy to this day. You never hear much about the SR-71s EW suite but back then it was pretty advanced
Go to time index 56:08 where he talked about getting shot at over the DMZ of the Korean peninsula. He mentions a special feature of the SR-71s EW suite.
