Secondly, you have not addressed the logistic problem that the British had that would not be the case here.
Third, if things got bad enough that half the military revolted, there would be no need for a revolt.
That is why a successful insurgency is mostly psychology.
If anything started it would most likely be a smaller situation which I'm guaranteed the government already has a 'quarantine' protocol, to make sure nothing spreads.
Of course they would deny that it was some sort of rebellion and assert that it was a terrorist attack, gang violence, etc.
They want to make sure that no military or law enforcement would turn on them.
You have to also remember that police and military wouldn't necessarily do as they say they would.
They would weigh that against losing pay, their own freedom and possibly making their families destitute by doing so.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
The Feds probably have all kinds of contingency plans. Unfortunately you can't just throw Federal troops into any state you want without approval.
