Then you have an army I suppose, which seems like standard procedure, one army fighting another army. A fair and proper war. Happens all the time.
But I think you mean civilians attacking the army. A poor target because for one it is a very hard target and can fight back and likely kick the *** of any opposing force out in the open. Got a tank, jet or pile of ammo in your back yard? If not, then you lose. Game over.
That why terrorists go for softer targets like polticians and mailboxes, you need only small bombs and get big publcity.
However, in Canada today, that definition is not likely to fly. Because attacking the army is attacking the state. Have you heard of the war on terror? It's broad lately.
Or you might mean guerilla war, that's been very popular too.
