Army personal, 'grown up' gerimental in barracks, poor educated, are at old age not mentally able to change/get use to democratic parliamentary processes.  Many examples, worldwide. At the end, in a democracy, they loose their self built up strong military image and fade away. No sub marines can give them face in a country in great need for hospitals.
