My personal theory for the "Starfleet isn't a military organization" boils down to Starfleet has defense as part of its mandate but things are so peaceful than it's about 30% of what they do versus diplomacy and science.

In that section of the Federation, if we take The Wounded and Christopher's own The Buried Age into account.
Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, [that] will lead to all men’s happiness. (http://tinyurl.com/cq8ektz)
