Question Warfare - Guerrilla

What if... the ONLY kind of future warfare were to be guerrilla style?

Doesn't it seem to be headed that direction?

Thinking about it, war moved from internecine skirmishes (deadly at times) more or less familial or small-scale tribal, then armies/navys, then huge sophisticated ones on enormous battlefields, then vast divisions conquering lands hundreds of miles from home, then highly trained well-equipped forces meeting on discreet fields of battle, then bombardment of civilian populations, then what we have now...

No?

... and no, I'm not talking about what certain seasoned citizens have to wear under their corduroy britches. Guerrilla warfare would most likely be employed in an area where the seeds to an insurgency have been sown, but have not yet sprouted into meaningful firefights. From the research I've done, every insurgency, successful or otherwise, has always started with guerrilla warfare, and if the initial phases are successful, it graduates (or degenerates, depending upon one's paradigm) into the next level of warfare, culminating in regular set-piece battles. It should not be thought of as a relic of the 19th or even the 20th century.

Yeah, I didn't think so either... what brought it to mind (again, as it has been wonting to do a loooooooooong time) is Israel... "bogged down" one might venture to claim, in essentially a guerrilla war, eh?

Do you suppose that whom some of our more unkind or forthright colleagues here might call "ragheads" are just sitting around thinking, "Hey, what the phock! ALL we have to do to irritate the crap out of those Yanks is keep shooting at 'em from behind every wall in the near and far east for as long as the ammo holds out. It'll drive 'em nuts, make 'em insult their citizens at the DMV and blow their fortunes of meaningless protections that we don't even have to actually PLAN on carrying out!"

Hmmm?
