yes, but the landscape of the US is MUCH different than Europe. You have woods right behind lots of houses and areas. You have woods and trails that
are easy to use and not well known.
Did you know that the main munitions manufacturing site for the confederate army was housed WITHIN occupied territory by the north for a large part of
the war. It never stopped producing munitions and wasnt discovered until almost a hundred years AFTER the war?
also do you think that people will load a station wagon and take a high way?
In my my parents old house I could use the woods behind it and get more than halfway across town under dense forest cover. That was in NY not too far
from the city. Now think to the rest of the US.
Also there are things like old train tracks and VERY old trails that are impossible to patrol regularly. We have MANY river ways that are too
commercial to shut down, or stop every ship that passes through.
You are not taking siege of a medieval city. You have to deploy A HUGE force for every town.
As far as biological weapons? You are not trained, or trained very well...are you.
You WANT that territory. You cant use biological weapons on your own land.....unless you want to say good bye to your own troops. You CAN NOT fight in
a biologically contaminated area for long. You withdraw and wait...thats it.
Also, what troops do you think they will be using? Robots? If they are American, you just gave your opposition an armed force now turned against
you....foreign troops? Even better. Get some. After trying to take a few towns their losses would be worse than if it were Kosovo.
You can not take the US by force. Even during the civil war the losses were too great too bear. The north was in no condition to keep fighting and
would have failed if they didnt have help from abroad and from a slave army they "freed".
Now, think what would happen in Europe if the US went into civil war....nothing? Those foreign troops would be busy at home soon enough. What about
the Middle east? Would they wait to see who won? China? Russia?
Our opposition would find itself surrounded and screwed like Hitler in a Russian winter.
There is also the fact that the US would never be completely under your control. Read up on Churchill´s thoughts about the US civil war. He studied
it extensively. HE would agree with me.
