I dont get it! I must be thick but it says 'Anything military in NATURE.'

I'm not sure if you're being tongue-in-cheek or not... but if you aren't... see definition 1

I forgot to take the literalist view into account when I wrote that description in my challenge suggestion. I guess everything but army ants is now a big fat DNMC.

I pulled my parachute pants entry in the last minute. Suddenly remembered it was from middle school and outside the window for acceptable entries.

nature as in "the nature of things", not nature as in "the great outdoors" nature.

Nature as in a statement like: "My nature is to be suspicious of everybody".

Here's another example, in the form of a fable:

A scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, once asked a turtle to carry him on his back across a river…And that’s just the beginning of the tale…

“Are you mad?” exclaimed the turtle. “You’ll sting me while I’m swimming and I’ll drown!”

“My dear turtle,” laughed the scorpion, “If I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now, where is the logic in that?”

“You’re right,” cried the turtle. “Hop on!”

The scorpion climbed aboard, and halfway across the river gave the turtle a mighty sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the shocked turtle said, “Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there’d be no logic in your stinging me. Why did you do it?”

“It has nothing to do with logic,” the drowning scorpion sadly replied. “It’s just my nature!”

Ouch, I now know which entry is yours. I thought it was a gag entry. Sorry.
