Canada to build Great Wall of Kandahar

Last week, the Canadian government reached a deal with Kandahar University to build a three kilometre wall around their campus. The new fortification will improve safety for female students, deter theives and keep nomadic goat herders from camping out in the quad. No fooling. Apparently, the place is almost totally besieged by shepherds.

Also nice to see a bit of old-school flavour to Canada's reconstruction efforts. Can't ensure security through military action or public diplomacy? Just build a damn wall. Hell, it worked for the Ming Emperors.
