Even the Aztecs managed to kill the occasional Conquistador, eh? The technology gap of Conquistadors vs Aztecs is small compared to the U.S. military vs "cavemen".
We could observe, abduct, and kill cavemen without them ever knowing we were there. We could paint a replica of the Mona Lisa on their cave walls and erect a multistory concrete building outside their cave while they sleep without a chance of waking them. We could slaughter an entire tribe in less than 5 minutes. We could wipe out every caveman on the planet without them even able to put up a defense, let alone injure one of us.
What could a caveman possible do against a helicopter, jet plane, tank, biological or nuclear weapon?
What could we possible do against aliens who can use their weapons on us from orbit (or further) and can travel between the stars?
