The trick is getting the armed forces on your side. You think every soliders political views align with everything that happens. They fight for freedom, it would be disgusting to see them try to fight against it.

to me, that would fall under the 'stars aligning just right' heading. i mean, i agree that the people in the armed forces are fighting for freedom and trying to protect this country but i have the suspicion that they would likely see a guerrilla group as a threat. the other thing that plays into this (in my mind) is people's willingness to follow authority even if it isnt a moral thing to do. the Milgram experiment comes to mind.

Just admit it. The general population of western countries are too soft.

Only time will tell what happens and based upon our history, it will get ugly if things go down.
