16. Wrong.

Small arms are of little use against tanks, bombers, and fighter planes?

How do you explain the Soviets' failure to dominate Afghanistan in the 80's?

How do you explain our failure to dominate Iraqi and Afghani insurgents?

History contains numerous examples of people with inferior firepower defeating or holding off those with superior firepower, to include our own forefathers against the might of the British Empire.

What's the secret? You adapt your tactics and strategy accordingly to use your asymmetrical firepower in asymmetrical ways against a more well-equipped enemy.
