More about walls...

Senator Obama's Berlin speech also contained the following: "... Not only have walls come down in Berlin, but they have come down in Belfast, where Protestant and Catholic found a way to live together..." Hmm, if he read this humble blog he would know that this is not so, Belfast's "peace walls" are still expanding ten years after the Good Friday agreement and the end of the violence...
