It could also be a case of preparing for after-a-war. If I remember US history correctly after WWII there was a big problem with tons of G.I.'s
returning home but not enough places to live for all of them. The solution was found in the invention of the Suburb, and rapid development was put
into full force. Maybe this time, someone has figured out how to avoid the homeless soldier problem before the fighting actually starts.
I have to admit though that the article argues against this, as most of the overdevelopment and empty homes are upperclass. So it can't be housing
for future veterans. . . . unless . . . Unless, it's a plunder based war.
Lot of juicy details and historical comparisons.
