Despite popular myth, the AmRevWar was NOT primarily a guerrilla war nor was GB “beaten soundly”.
And again, I point to the fact that any gov unafraid to ruthlessly bomb anything from sky and sea WILL win over those rebels in this day and age. The samples cited only demonstrate the wimpiness of the US machine - the US could destroy half the earth if it had the will. We mere citizens have been disallowed the heavy artillery - mere handguns stand no chance without commandeering it.
I know we have "precision" weapons but how do you drop a 500 lb. bomb in an urban neighborhood and hit only the right wingers?
Major cities would be denied water and food in short order.

You mean like how Afghanistan and Iraq were pacified? The way cartels in Mexico were neutralized? lol
It’s a fools errand to try to fight them on their terms, with a similar force in the field. You don’t go try to dogfight F-15s as an insurgent. You kill the pilot with a snub 38 as he is gassing his car on the way home.
A squadrom commander gets a photo of his daughter in the mail. She is walking into the school. Crosshairs are drawn on her.
A geeky drone operator in Vegas is in a bar. A smoking hot 23 year old woman is really into him. She asks what he does. Drunkenly, he tries to impress her by saying he’s a drone pilot at Nellis. He explains to her that drone pilots are fully qualified pilots too. She screws his brains out that night. She asks him to meet her somewhere the next time he’s off.
He is shot dead as he gasses his car. The assailant was a 25 year old man. The older brother of the girl from the bar. They tracked him carefully. They were in Vegas on a mission with a 357 and one box of bullets. You see, their father was killed by a predator drone strike.
Five assembly line workers are murdered in a coordinated sniper attack as they walk into the Martin missile assembly plant that builds the Hellfire missiles. 30% of the workforce quits. The miltary has to secure locations they never dreamed of.
Artillery units are bitter at being asked to fire non precision HE into an American city. Desertions are rampant with crew served weapons. The “loyal” units ust be carefully vetted for locals from the state being attacked.
Tanks are thirsty. The fuel trucks that supply them are driven by the likes of Jessica Lynch. Tanks cannot find a target, but fuel truck drivers are sniped wholesale. Some by freelancers belonging to no organization. They were aa leaderless cell of one and simply saw a target of opportunity.
No,,a resistance movement would not need F-15s or Artillery. All of these examples are happening somewhere in the world right now. Nazis couldnt stop them, we cannot, nobody can. Such wars are unbeliveably violent, and should be avoided at all costs,,,,, except the loss of freedom.
It is the acme of evil that our government is headed straight for despotism and deep corruption. But no, they could not defeat us.
Our entire military was almost ground to hamburger in iraq, which is about the size of Texas. No dice.
The Liberator Pistol is a History lesson in itself,
if one is interested,,,
