If you were Bane..do you think you could take on a bunch of police who had been underground for months or do you think you can take on the U.S. Army.
The police are do-able, and he can further his plan to build there hope up, just to crush it. The army is something he can't handle. It's a pretty simple and reasonable belief that bane would of pushed the button if interference from an army that has Helicopters, tanks etc, ground men with fully automatics that would completely destroy his men.
I mean you could argue that they could have disguised a bunch of the military individuals as policemen..but I have to imagine that would be a lot harder to orchestrate given the time frame. (even though bruce had time to do the burning bat on the tower.)
