Pakistan Builds A Wall On Afghanistan Border To Control The Flow Of Terrorists

In order to attempt to curtail the flow of terrorist between Pakistan and Afghanistan, the former country is building a wall on the border it shares with the latter. “For the better security of our country and nation, we had to do this work,” a Pakistani army official, Brig. Nisar.

Nisar, who only uses one name, told journalists during a government-organized visit to the border that this is in Pakistan’s security interest. The barrier has angered the Afghan government, which disputes the location of the boundary and says the fence will” tear communities apart.”

According to NBC News, construction began last year on two fences that parallel each other as they snake through the remote, mountainous landscape. Standing 13 feet high on the Afghan side and 11 feet on the Pakistani side, sharp spirals of silver barbed wire are cradled at the top of each.

Many have questioned the efficacy of border walls, and whether or not the cost is worth the outcome. But if the goal is reducing an influx of human beings, there is at least some real-world evidence that border walls are effective.
