USA - China, wall building, history Show more
all this talk of wall building just reminds me of the pro-wall, anti-wall factions in the Ming dynasty in book i'm reading. The great wall is just an expensive testament to their greatest failure, the ability to do diplomacy with the Manchu "barbarians". The wall did not stop the inner corruption of the dynasty or stop raiding south of the wall.
just as this border wall will not stop illegal immigrants or drugs.
