The funny thing about that argument is countries have been handing the US it's collective asses in almost every conflict since Korea, in that the actual stipulations of winning the war have been failed to see fruition in so many conflicts. Vietnamese with fucking crusty SKS' and AKs prevented our much technologically superior military from achieving any sort of real victory, despite the death tolls being far higher for the NVA and VC, the fact they wouldn't stop just meant the war could never be won without fucking nuclear genocide, which is just the military equivalent of flipping the chess board and screaming in rage when you're put in check.
We couldn't achieve victory conditions in any MAJOR military conflict for a very long time, that isn't because we suck, it's just because you literally can't ever win a war unless there is complete enemy surrender and no post-war guerilla uprising bullshit. Hell, WW2 may not have been won by the Allies, it took a lot of collective might to bring down Germany and even then, there was actual fighting going on in Germany into like 1947 and shit, the never say die hardcore German soldiers kept fighting off Russians guerilla-style, it might have failed, but it also might have made victory extremely difficult if had only been the US or only Russia fighting that war against the entirety of Germany, it took a massive sandwiching of Americans, Canadians, Brits and Russians/other various Slavs to keep a lid on Nazi Germany.
And now we do have awesome drones, tanks, stealth fighters, all kinds of spec ops badasses and we still couldn't do shit to contain any of the problems in the Middle East and neither could the damn Russians, you literally can't beat an enemy that won't surrender. It's bad enough we can't even accomplish military goals in desert shitholes, but a domestic second American Revolution (or would it be third...or fourth, how many silent wars have been fought and won with money and bureaucracy within our own government?)
Anyway, if a bunch of brownskins with AKs and IEDs can stop victory conditions, a domestic civil war in America could be fucking impossible for the US military, way too much varied terrain, way too huge of a country, there'd be rogue groups operating all over the country just randomly ambushing every cop or soldier they saw, it doesn't matter how many drones and remote air strikes the government can lob, that shit did not work in Vietnam, Afghanistan or Iraq. Plus the loss of infrastructure would just devastate a nation as big and advanced as the USA, close range city combat in places like New York City or Seattle or Detroit, shit would be in-fucking-sane, half the city being turned to rubble by random drone strikes and tanks, other hal
