organize a civilian army
I hear what you are saying, and this would be a re-occuring theme within many individuals thoughts, but I believe it would be the most difficult task
out of any, and could not be done besides in small towns where people have known each other for many years.
Reason being this:
If an organized force somehow defeated our
military. The navy, army, marines or all the above, then it is safe to say they could handle any
civilian force organized without the resources that the U.S. military possess. People would recognize this and do what is best for their families,
which means they would flee. People would understand the serious threat their families would be under and only foolishly patriotic people would stay
to attempt to thwart the inevitable.
Just want to clarify I know it could never happen. Due to Americas technological advantage and geographical advatage, but to get past all that, and
somehow there was an invasion (which is extreme hyperbole) a civilian army even with large numbers would not stand a chance.
There is also the Jericho situation. Where small towns that could bind together and share resources to defend each other. Because of Americas
vastness the invaders would not be able to spread out evenly and their limited numbers in some areas would bring an advantage to those that know and
understand their regional advantages.
But as for reno, well shoot man, that would not be the best place to stand and fight. But I admire your bravado.
The only way it could ever happen is if we were to be nuked in key areas like San Diego or D.C., and even then it would be far fetched.
