A major allure of global guerrilla operations is the extreme leverage gained from attacks on critical infrastructure networks. In a recent interview with the AP, Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi stated that attacks on oil and electrical infrastructure over the last 10 days cost Iraq $1 billion. These attacks include multiple disruptions of electrical infrastructure (particularly fuel for power plants) and interdiction of both the northern and southern export pipelines. A good estimate of the total cost of making these attacks is little more than $10,000. That is a rate of return (ROI) of 100,000 times the initial investment.
