Listen to yourself. You make no sense. 20,000+ men pulled away from homes would devastate a society that size. Consider what percentage are elderly, too young to work, sick, handicapped, or drunks or incapacitated in some way? What about the continued logistics of feeding them? Where are the toilet holes? Giza should be caked with excrement, somewhere.
