I seriously doubt it’s to accommodate the women. But I certainly do expect that it’s driven by $$$ – most everything is anyway. The fundamental evil that exists – call it the Dark State or whatever – uses money to create more money for themselves and their purposes. And one of those fundamental purposes is to keep military forces well established throughout the world, thereby continuing their reign of carnage and destruction across the earth – destruction of both infrastructure as well as large percentages of whole generations of human beings. All just part of the plan, don’tchaknow.
Side note: And yes, the women have arrived. They are indeed in Infantry basic training as I type, FWIW. I have no further comment on the subject.
