Ok I might seem cruel for a minute but even with 'a rifle behind every blade of grass' there are still huge problems facing the US populace in any
sort of invasion.
Sure, your military is top class but without satellites and other systems the US wouldn't stand against fast moving or number-heavy arms (I call them
Swarm armies) simply because they would need to revert to the age old 'they move that a-way... Bring our tercios across' or more simply, your army
would have to physically see the troop movements and then report to a senior officer and by the time the Army has mobilised to strike the enemy is
Also, on the 'will to survive' / 'survival skills' thing; the US is suffering from having over 30% of it's population being classified as
'Obese'. You can have all the rifles in the world but it won't count for piss if your population get out of breath just loading the gun.
So even say 100,000,000 people can actually come to fight in a war to defend the US they would be heavily, heavily outnumbered by the Chinese or
Indians who can muster 750,000,000 and 650,000,000 soldiers respectively.
Or even the fact that Russia can call on over 70,000,000 soldiers in decent health.
Hell, even if the ENTIRE population of the USA was armed (Every man, woman, child and new born) the Chinese would still outnumber you 2-1.
So, I do believe the USA can be invaded by a swift moving or swarm type army (after taking serious casualties) but if you meant invaded and occupied
then the answer is 'no'. Unless the invaders plan on wiping every person in America off the map.
So, long story short, the US can be invaded by the right type of army.
But the US can't be occupied by any army without total eradication of the US populace or at least a severe reduce in numbers and extremely tight
control (which would crash the economy of whoever attacked you in the first place).
