Another possible militia advantage is the American military itself, with that chain of overseas bases stretching from Europe to the Middle East, from Asia to Latin America and beyond. Although the exact number of overseas bases can be disputed (independent analysts put it at a far higher number than official military figures), there is no question that a significant chunk of America’s ground, naval and air forces are currently deployed overseas. In Japan alone there are still over 30,000 U.S. military personnel. And trying to withdraw all of those troops to combat a domestic insurgency would be a major logistical feat, one that would probably be subject to countless delays and problems. No doubt some combat units could be sent home on short notice, but others, particularly armored units with lots of heavy equipment, would take much longer.
Midwestern militia groups revolt against their local governments in protest of rampant U.S. adventurism overseas and, in the absence of the National Guard, are able to gain far more ground than they thought possible. Small insurgent groups pop up in towns and cities across the country, and a sizable force, the Free States Army, pushes toward Manhattan. The city proves too big for them to take, and also for the U.S. Army to defend. The war stalls there, a stalemate, neither side being able to shift things.
A civil war is a war between organized groups within the same nation state or republic. The aim of one side may be to take control of the country or a region, to achieve independence for a region, or to change government policies.
