Airforce, navy cannot fight with them.
Yeh boots on ground with local community help can fight and it would be a gorilla fight just like Afghanistan.
In the case of technology equipped with datelite imaging, drones, Jet bombers, tanks, helicopters America is far more superior tactically but let me tell you that this place would be a hell for Americans in the whole region if they launched a full fledge type of attack on Pakistan.
And let me tell you that America has no interest to attack this country but we should also see why India, USA, Britian, Iran and China complaint to our visiting leasers about the terror/extremist exports from Pakistani side.
So its better to controle our own people's extremism/jihadism/terrorism physce.
As far as assignment is concerned then it would be better to compare Pakistan and India.
