It would take a large covert setup first, and then it would take occupying key areas that could not be destroyed with heavy artillery, and from there
the invasion would be afoot.
Imagine infiltrating for 10 years across a porous southern border, and through student visas and work visas and putting your players in the field.
Acquire weapons and knowledge of our society. Then, create misdirection, maybe some terrorist attacks, and a faux invasion away from the real action,
while the real players are taking up key positions near strategic areas like refineries, nuke plants, or large urban areas. Then, just like Normandy,
you move in heavily, you take heavy losses, but by controlling the volatile areas you render our air strikes useless. We can't use ICBM's, nukes,
or MOABs on our own urban areas, infrastructure, or near hazardous materials like refineries and nuke plants. You ensure face to face fighting so our
technology and air force are pretty useless.
There are dozens of other ways too. If you really wanted to soften the target, just put 100 DC-Sniper style operatives all around the country scaring
people into not buying gas, not going to work, not going to school. Destroy the local economies in key areas, it entails little risk and little
expense, but it has crushing effectiveness on our lifestyle. Get people scared again like they were post 9/11 and with our economy already teetering
on the brink you could implode it pretty easily.
Once the economy is imploded, now it is difficult to tell domestic terrorists from real terrorists, and tell false operations from real operations,
and you just send out a lot of misdirection before you finally launch the invasion.
The key is rendering our weapons useless against ourselves and keeping our population fighting each other and our own government long enough for the
invaders to get a good foothold.
There is my dime store version off the top of my head. Imagine what somene actually trained in the arts of war, with a team of advisors, and a huge
budget could come up with over a few months!
