U.S. Builds Wall to Separate Factions in Baghdad

This is a little old but I just saw a fox news report on tv about the 3 mile wall “ to protect a Sunni Arab enclave surrounded by Shiite neighborhoods in a Baghdad area "trapped in a spiral of sectarian violence and retaliation," the military said. The wall will be 12 feet high and will enable US soldiers to monitor everyone entering and leaving the Azamlyah to prevent death squads from entering. For weird reason this wall reminds me of the Berlin wall and ghettos formed during the Nazi gathering of the Jews. I really have a bad feeling about this wall. And how will a wall prevent death squads from killing people. I have fallen off taller ladders before.

As I see it, walls are always a bad idea. They usually end up causing more problems than solving them.
