It depends on what your definition of "guerrilla" is.

Read the definition again. Pay particular attention to the part about "Military and paramilitary operations." Military operations have objectives that advance a strategic agenda. In other words, they are planned out as a means to the end of winning a war.
When you start seeing attacks aimed at disrupting supplies, capturing objectives, rendering equipment ineffective or anything that is aimed at having an impact on US forces operational ability, then it falls under that Pentagon definition of a guerrilla action.
Now as for quagmire... I notice he sidestepped the whole question of an exit strategy.
