Guerilla warfare, in its many forms, has always been the answer to organized offensive action. In the last two thousand years, 96% of all documented revolts have failed. Until recently, it has been rare for an insurgency to 'win.'
Where did this statistic Come from..?
And, the goal of guerilla warfare is not to win, but to antagonize, to disrupt, to create panic, inflict pain, and usually for revenge of seeing your own family and friends killed by the occupying forces.
Modern guerillas employ modern tools. If Chez Guevera had posessed cell phones, he would have used them. The days of total technical superiority on the part of an organized army are over. As electronics become cheaper, you will see them being used more and more by even the poorest of rebels.
This holds true throughout History.
