The Hidden Story of Vietnam Mutinies

"The political impact of the mutiny was felt far beyond Vietnam. As H.R. Haldeman, Nixon's chief of staff, reflected, "If troops are going to mutiny, you can't pursue an aggressive policy." The soldiers' revolt tied down the global reach of U.S. imperialism."

Interesting article on mutinies during the Vietnam war. This is probably why the Great Satan doesn't want to resort to a draft unless it absolutely has to. When it does, this is another area where resistance work can be useful. Also, there are some tactics in the article that will be of interest to the future Revolutionary.
