I once read a survey from 1992. (Wish I could cite it but you'll have to take my word until I find it again.)
It was a survey of American armed forces personell.
The results were that 92% of U.S. soldiers said they would carry out U.N. orders to disarm american citizens and were prepared to fire on american citizens when doing so.
The idea being that if they were under U.N. command, they would shoot american citizens who resisted being disarmed.
This may seem hard to believe, but I think soldiers trained to unquestioningly follow orders would do just that, even against American citizens.
