Iraq learning from Israel?
I came across this on BBC today:
"Iraq's interior ministry has announced plans to increase security in Baghdad by digging trenches around the city, and surrounding it with checkpoints.
Brigadier Abdul Karim of the interior ministry told the BBC that hundreds of minor roads would be sealed off under the plan, so that the city could only be accessed via 28 checkpoints."
According to BBC radio, people whose land is confiscated will not be compensated.
Is it just me or does this sounds familiar?
