How likely is today's USA can be controlled by a dictator or a small group of people? You need to have very substantial support in the government, the military and the police. The threat is unreal.

I don't read novels and take those as history books.  ; -)

Even if the most unlikely should happen, what are the odds of untrained citizens using small arms to fight a regular army with state-of-art weaponry?

Why not ask the Vietnamese that question? Or the Afghans?


The simple answer to that - the Vietnamese and the Afghans are some of the most tenacious fighters in the world, they are experienced, and they are masters of guerrilla warfare, not some inexperienced and disorganized militia.
