Wrong, wrong and wrong again.

A military must exist as a legal entity. There must be a mandate and charter. Any force without such legality and legitimacy is paramilitary.

A paramilitary is a military-esque force whose function and organization are similar to those of a professional military, but which is not considered part of a state's formal armed forces.
Please get your facts straight.
