It seems "demobilise" is one of fave expressions used by Cambridge Uni Press. I see dozens of it in their articles. WTF?

Atch, let me tell you sth: be careful with judgement on usages of English coz there are more things in heaven and earth, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. hahahaha buhahahaha
20 years ago I took up writing down all strange expressions in English which I couldn`t believe my eyes or ears coz they sounded so close to Polish and were in a compete opposition to what I had acquired at uni.
Do you know how it all ended?? I gave up after 2, 3 years coz there were so many of those odd things and I didn`t have time to keep my little diary. :):):)
