Well yeah people would go crazy but we could stop North Korea and Iran with out troops, plus all our destroyers and aircraft carriers in the oceans would be plenty. Now the home front would be a mess
All I know is you take away full bellies and deprive people of water and base necessities and you won't recognize them or their behavior. If this were to have happened in the 60s it would not be as bad is if it happened today simple because of technology and our dependence upon it for survival. When natural disasters devastate an area, we simply pull power from elsewhere and resupply transformers and the like from elsewhere, but when the whole place goes black, it's another story entirely. I don't think we can quite fathom everything that would go bad in such a scenario, which is why I have to think our military would be sent home to deal with the mass civil unrest of 314 million people in hysteria.
