"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall! " Ronald Reagan speaking of the Berlin Wall. The Chinese built one too to keep out the Mongols. Israel has several keeping out those Palestinians. Now, never learning from history, the U.S. is building one in Sadr City.
"Trying to stem the infiltration of militia fighters, American forces have begun to build a massive concrete wall that will partition Sadr City, the densely populated Shiite neighborhood in the Iraqi capital.The construction, which began in April, is intended to turn the southern quarter of Sadr City near the international Green Zone into a protected enclave, secured by Iraqi and American forces, where the Iraqi government can undertake reconstruction efforts." - NYT
One more stupid idea of the Bush/Cheney regime. Who has been keeping track of their idiotic blunders?
