Prior to WWII I understand that a Japanese official counseled that attacking America would be difficult, that there is a rifle behind every blade of grass. My question is, during the Cold War era and now, did and do America's enemies take in to consideration an armed populous such ours? If the Warsaw Pact had attacked Germany, there would have no armed population to fight back, but in America, we could have. What types of war plans? Does anyone know of any information on this? Sources? To what degree does or has our Federal government actually relied on this with regards to national defense? I am speaking of post-WWII. Thanks.
