Mainly because the valley is rich and underexploited. Sor-eel obviously
needs the troops to filfull some of his get-rich schemes (like colonizing
the valley and pocketing Lunar Subsidies for doing so) which requires
forces to frighten off the nomads. Possibly he's trying to turn the
River of Cradles into a Clan Fief. The troops haven't been called back
by the appropiate authorities because Sor-eel has been using his clan to
delay the matter (appeals on points of procedure, fillibustering in
committee, brown money bags etc etc).
