Wall Builders

Reagan 2016: "Iraqi Police Brig. General Saad Maan, put up that wall!!"

Not to be confused w/ these WallBuilders, but easily confused w/ Donald Drumpf, who may tell the Meskins to start digging a moatrench along the U.S.-Mexico border next to his imaginary wall.
Iraq said Wednesday it has begun building a wall and a trench around Baghdad in a bid to prevent militant attacks and reduce the large number of checkpoints inside the city.

The Interior Ministry's spokesman, police Brig. Gen. Saad Maan, told The Associated Press that work began this week on a 100-kilometer (65-mile) stretch of the wall and trench on the northern and northwestern approaches of the capital.

The wall will be three meters (10 feet) high and partially made up of concrete barriers already in use across much of the capital, he said. He declined to specify the measurements of the trench.

Since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, Baghdad has seen near-daily bombings, mainly targeting security forces and the country's Shiite majority.
