This is a frequent turning point in history when you start to get the military onside. Once they are with you even the dopiest champagne drinking airheads will sit up and take notice. They know the hour is approaching and if you pay attention you can see a nervous bead of sweat rolling down their foreheads even as they are sneering. The last thing that any politician wants is to put himself opposite the military in the event of coup. Traditionally you're the first one to be put on trial if that happens.
