Vietnam says yes.

EDIT: Knock on wood. Don't want them re-invading the place just to stop people from pointing out that Vietnam beat them.

One essential part of this was how the troops within the US army rebelled against it.

See fragging.

Doing internal work on the structures of the army itself seems essential to defeating it.

Beyond that, broad popular power would work against the army (which would happen together with internal dissent). But this is a hard when you're up against the various propaganda/sabotage/espionage capacities involved.
