in any event..

it seems we are builidng a 12 foot wall in iraq.

A U.S. military brigade is constructing a 3-mile-long concrete wall to cut off one of the capital's most restive Sunni Arab districts from the Shiite Muslim neighborhoods that surround it, raising concern about the further Balkanization of Iraq's most populous and violent city.

U.S. commanders in northern Baghdad said the 12-foot-high barrier would make it more difficult for suicide bombers to strike and for death squads and militia fighters from sectarian factions to attack one another and then slip back to their home turf. Construction began April 10 and is expected to be completed by the end of the month.

Although Baghdad is replete with blast walls, checkpoints and other temporary barriers, including a massive wall around the Green Zone, the barrier being constructed in Adhamiya would be the first to be based in essence on sectarian considerations.

I concur angel (even if you don't care if I do - lol),

Securing and fixing our borders and immigration system is something neither side wants to specifically address. A true leader would take head on, the most controversial issues. We currently have politicians not leaders.

I can see how the Iraqi government feels it will create higher tensions and IMO they are right.
