I believe that if the Government were to fire on their own people,bad things would happen.Fathers,Mothers,and many family trained prior service,would not take kindly to that.
They would avenge and woe be unto the people in charge who issued the order.
Training during the Viet Nam war,many tacticts were taught to control riots,crowds,etc.,being a young grunt it was your duty,which many fellow soldiers followed through without any questions.Including me.
Being a few years older now,yes I would have some questions as to the orders given.
Example,If a soldier finds out a member of his family who he or she loved to pieces was gunned down by his fellow soldiers,how far is his loyalty going to drop??
Is any REAL MAN or WOMAN going to be able to do their job?
Not unless they have their own issues.

"Being a few years older now,yes I would have some questions as to the orders given."
I've long sensed an interesting dichotomy sometimes between the attitudes of active duty and separated.
