Don't be so stupid! It has a parliament and civilian government. Who ruled USA after independence from England? Was George Washington a civilian? Was he not the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War?

Every nation state has to evolve democracy in its own way depending on currents of history.

If you do not understand the impact of history on politics, go to hell!
