Even in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, they aren't just hurling rocks, and it isn't any sort of surprise attack.  They're using the cargo drones that are no longer being used to deliver grain, in response to an attempted military occupation from Earth, and they drones are being sent in such huge quantities that they're saturating Earth's defenses.  (They send so many that Cheyenne Mountain is physically destroyed after a prolonged bombardment.  Not the base inside the mountain, the actual mountain.  They find themselves somewhat embarrassed when Mike, the central computer, informs them that they destroyed a mountain, mostly because nobody was paying attention to how much damage they were really doing to it.)
