What people who buy into this nonsense keep forgetting is that the soldiers have families too.
There is no way the troops would ever go along with something like this, their first concern in a national emergency will be to their families.
Your entire point is moot because they can change the laws and the operating procedures to fit their needs. Or just change the definition of enemy to include US citizens.
Nazi's had families too.
Soldiers are conditioned to follow orders.
If they don'f follow orders they'll end up in the camps they're supposed to be running.
It's amazing what a human will do to protect their own interests and stay safe.
