I'm not saying its very likely, but that fascism should be put down before such a thing could be considered possible. I suppose you'd think the Italian military would be able to put down a few civilian partisans as well, no? Especially since that military had just been on the winning side of the biggest war the world had seen at the time.

I don't think you can compare Italy back then to America now. The Italian government wouldn't stand a chance up against our modern armory.

You can compare it to any unstable government; maybe not now, but maybe in five years the economy crashes and its fertile land for a proper coup.

Our military is not dependent on the economy... Even during the great depression, the military grew bigger than ever.

The Italian military was still big at the time. Its not about the military, its about the success of the coup. Also, if you really wanna bring up the Great Depression, the Business Plot was planned.
