Given the recent anonymous/lulzsec/anti-sec hacking/ddos campaigns, I think it's become pretty obvious that it doesn't take a lot of man-power or resources to cause chaos. If companies and governments can't defend against a small group of teenage hackers they certainly don't have any chance of stopping a government with an army of hackers.
