When should orders be refused?

Hindsight is 20-20.
Speaking at a conference Tuesday in Efrat on refusing immoral orders, Rabbi Yuval Cherlow of the Petach Tikvah Hesder Yeshiva said that if he had known at the time that five years later that expellees from Gush Katif would still be living in temporary homes, he would have called for soldiers to refuse to participate in the disengagement.

Participating the conference were, among others, Manhigut Yehudit leader Moshe Feiglin, Dr. David Matar, whose wife Nadia started the Women in Green movement, and Rabbi Yoel Kretchmer, former head of the Religious Kibbutz Movement and known for his support of leftists' disobeying of orders.

I wonder what will happen if the government - God forbid - ever orders the IDF to expel Jews from their homes again.
