Yes, gorilla warfare in lands storied with military conflict compared to the lazy apethtic culture of the United States. Great historical analysis there guys, with the way our culture operates, I would invision a modern civil war to facililitate more like a German occupied France.

Afghanistan hasn't had a successful occupation since the Persian Empire, Alexander couldn't control the tribes, the Mongols couldn't control the tribes, the Ottomans couldn't control the tribes, tge Soviets couldn't control the tribes, and neither can the United States. Vietnam is the exact same. Both countries occupy untamable terrain, highly capable populaces, and a knack for brutal warfare.
