    China erects fence along N. Korea border

    HUSHAN, China (AP) - China has been building a massive barbed wire and concrete fence along parts of its border with North Korea in the most visible sign of Beijing's strained ties with its once-cozy communist neighbor.

    Scores of soldiers have descended on farmland near the border-marking Yalu River to erect concrete barriers 8 to 15 feet tall and string barbed wire between them, farmers and visitors to the area said.

    Last week, they reached Hushan, a collection of villages 12 miles inland from the border port of Dandong.

    "About 100 People's Liberation Army soldiers in camouflage started building the fence four days ago and finished it yesterday," said a farmer, who only gave his surname, Ai. "I assume it was built to prevent smuggling and illegal crossing."

    i think the chinese run their protesters over with tanks....so they pretty much do what they want......i am sure the ACLU would frown on us doing that....they want to ensure that people that break the law to enter our country have their non-god given non- citizen constitutional rights protected

    Why do you think china has survived so many millenia while other civs have fallen? They adapt to their invaders. Barbarians invading and ravaging countries? Build a big fucking wall to keep them out. Romans see barbarians ravaging and pillaging countries? They hire barbarians to run their military. Wonder why China is still around and Rome isnt. :rolleyes:
