Oh, but allow me to retort. The reason why you keep hearing it is because it's absolutely true and painfully evident to anyone that's ever spent
more than 30 seconds planning just a scenario.
You cannot OCCUPY a nation without popular support for any extended period of time, no matter how technologically advanced they are. Period, full
stop. That goes double if it's a foreign OPFOR. Why? Because Americans are EVERYWHERE. When you're fighting against a population of 300 million
and simple attrition will wear you down unless you use some form of advanced tech and/or pure genocide. I say they don't have enough of those
sooper-sekret diarrhea/pain/deafness/gay guns to police ALL of America. Why? Because if the equipment was that widespread every stinking squad in
Iraq/Afghanistan would have had one.
I'm not saying the tech is not out there. I'm saying there isn't enough. Sure, they can use drones, but there's only so many of them and they
still have to be piloted. If it's the Feds they won't exactly be able to unleash the Predators on the US population, either. Popular support,
remember?There'd be no better way to make a normally apathetic human being into an unstoppable force of nature than blowing their kids to bits with a
Hellfire from above. Its not just guns, either. Without getting into any details that might violate T&C, I suggest you read up on the origins of
Raid bug spray. That's just one example.
Don't get me wrong. It will be ridiculously bloody and victory is not assured, even more so if it's Feds vs. Joe Six Pack. But it's not
unwinnable. Hope it never comes down to that. I really like air conditioning and high speed internet. That's why I wish the government would just
take a step back and realize how badly they're making the general public mad.
As far as the other guy's comment about the foreign soldiers, the reason why you thought that is that you're looking for an argument. You would
treat any invader with hostility. Here in the South if you are friendly you get welcomed with open arms...usually. If you're an enemy you get
handled. That's just the way it is.
