And there's no way a few militia types would be able to, say, cripple a US Destroyer, right?

Revolutionary wars in the 20th century are not fought on the traditional battlefield. If Osama Bin Laden didn't exist the US would have invented him. I'm always amazed at how easily people adapt the terrorist meme. What's the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter, anyway?
