You cant compaire a bunch of camel headers to exmilitary, hunters, target shooters, ect. who are determined to defend their home and country. Im not trying to diss you or what your saying, but we're not going to be fighting armored vehicles and the like. A high point is plenty fine for your wife to put a hole in hostile
I don't know who I fought. I do know they lacked discipline, didn't know shit about tactics, had a hard time fighting and maneuvering (something which Marines kick serious ass at), they loved to bunch up into nice little groups (lollercoaster would soon follow), the command structure was non existent. In short, they were terrible, terrible fighters. They even sucked at setting up ambushes... something I think our survivalists would have trouble with also.
That said, all of the men I fought thought they were sticking up for their country and were doing the right thing. They were all well armed, better than most of our populace is. Some of the insurgents I fought were ex-military, some where taxi drivers, some where just kids. The Bedouins were pretty rare, most Iraqis live in cities, not camel herding groups of nomadic villages.
Lastly, APCs can show up when you least expect it. As can Cobras or Apaches, or a smart bomb. You don't choose when to fight them. It's a little trick we played all the time in '04, we'd go on patrol, and when things acted up, we'd call in artillery or an air strike. Problem solved.
An occupying force would also start to ask your neighbors what you do, where you are at all times of the days, etc. You'd get found out quickly. I used to hand out $5s to kids all the time, and they'd rat their neighbors out to me. Don't think the same thing won't happen if we ever got invaded.
Lastly, the Ewok nation is a mighty and proud people. They are very fearsome, just ask the Empire.
