How would a anarchistic nation defend itself against a foreign invasion?

A likely scenario being that China or Russia would, having depleted their own resources by the late century, make a play to cease North America’s rich resources. How would informal anarchistic militias defend against a disciplined and technologically advanced land/air/sea/space army of millions of men with access to satellites, drones, and nuclear/chemical/biological weaponry?
