So with all of the things I mentioned, name one, just ONE organization that routinely does ALL of them, that is NOT military.
I have, in fact, already named three such organizations:

The Japanese Self Defense Force
The Chinese Coast Guard (as an example of MANY non-military coast guards)
Earth Starfleet

Second challenge: If Starfleet isn't a form of military organization, please define for me the actual 23rd/24th century military organization.
Assuming they even have one, it would be filled by several organizations that I have, again, already mentioned, such as (but not limited to)
The Federation Naval Patrol.
The Andorian Royal Guard
The Military Assault Command Organization.

Who, since Starfleet is not the primary military force, provides peacekeeping missions for member worlds?
Starfleet IS a peacekeeping force. It is also not a military organization.

Actually, SHOW me. DEMONSTRATE and PROVE that Starfleet does not provide military functions as a matter of fact.
I never said that didn't. In fact, I pretty explicitly said that DID provide military functions even at a time when their organizations was unquestionably non-military in nature.
