A. The same as they have. which would include helicopters, war planes, missiles and rocket launchers, automatic weapons and 30 to 50 round clips and more. Night vision, smart bullets, drones, 50 Cal machine guns, War ships, Tanks and what ever other arms we will need to throw of any tyrannical govt whether foreign or domestic

Actually I think the guerilla forces in Afghanistan would beg to differ. They have successfully waged a guerilla campaign against arguably the most advanced military force on the planet. They do not have aircraft, night vision, drones, war ships, or many of the other things that our military has, but yet they held their ground.
Never underestimate the resolve of a people to defend their home.
