You *Can* own them, doesn't mean enough people do or know how to use them. Modern helicopters for example can shoot at you from several miles away.
Really it depends on the goal and determination of the invading army. If they want to capture with everything intact through military force, yeah they would struggle greatly. If they wanted to ethnically cleanse and make room for their people, well....

I'm lazy for individual links, so here is a cracked article about the Vietnam war.
Cracked makes a good point, at the time, the AK-47 was the shit hot tier of guns. M16 sucked chodes.

You should really do more background on your evidence.
They lost the Warsaw uprising, Warsaw was 90% destroyed. Germans had planes.
The Vietnam war was primarily fought with the very large and well equipped north Vietnam army which at the time, had one of the best air defence systems in the world because of the USSR. The US was all about airpower and still is. Along with tanks, artillery and actual supply lines. Which was itself, mostly fault against the significantly worse quality South Vietnamese troops.
Afghanistan is an impossibly mountainous country, suited to partisan style fighting, especially when the invading army is using a tank heavy military. Not to mention the economic collapse of the USSR at the time and the fact the US was giving the Afgans every weapon they had. (Stingers, anti-tank weapons)
As for the US version, the US is winning and is holding back because of Pakistan. Can't finish the job in the tribal regions.
As for Lawrence, he is an idea of good partisan action. But doesn't defeat my point about Air power and long-range artillery. He was fighting the Ottomans back when they actually managed to lose a war against Italy. Nobody loses a war against Italy.

The Warsaw uprising was a group of poor, starving, people who couldn't legally own guns, who rose up against a powerful conventional military and actually scared them. They lost because the Germans could (and did) go house to house killing literally everybody.
Vietnam is a very interesting case because we fought a guerilla force backed by a conventional army. We lost because our morale got so low. We had better tanks, better aircraft, better AAA. We lost because U.S. soldiers could never confirm their kills. We lost because we would take a hill, and the enemy wouldn't want it back. We lost because we couldn't see our enemy. We never knew their true strength, their equipment, or their mentality. That is why we lost, and that is why fighting a determined civil resistance is so daunting. The only way to be certain of their defeat is extermination of the populace. And in a country like ours, you can't even be sure they aren't hiding in the millions of square miles of wilderness.
Afghanistan is a grade-a example of how low intensity warfare needs to be fought. Both the Soviets and the Americans did far better when they used small, specialized forces. Once you start rolling in tanks and platoons of regulars, all you do is make bigger, slower targets. You have to win over the people. And in a country like ours, there are way too many people that would never be won over by an occupying force. Hell, we can hardly stand for our police to be heavily armed.
The case of Lawrence of Arabia is an example of how a small, rag-tag militia can strike back against a large, conventional military. The concepts of air and artillery forces do not defeat his wisdom, because technology has advanced on both sides. The whole point behind fighting an insurgency is that you have to see your enemy to kill him, and that you can't really see a partisan force. That's what it all comes down to. You know the phrase "know your enemy"? Well the point of being a guerilla is that you can't be known.

obviously they would be naked, since clothing would draw attention away from their beards. riding moose and leading a gaggle of canadian geese onward to victory. Like you said, at least they would be apologizing the entire time.
