I was in Germany when they built that damn thing and it caused all the troops stationed there to be extended for a number of months. I was supposed to rotate back to the states after 24 months but had to stay until my enlistment ran out, which made my stay 31 months instead. None of us were too happy, except for the fact that the war that was expected to start over the building of the wall never happened, but we did have to go on alert.

Wowereit? Wulff? Two scumbag politicians that make conservative Germans wish the wall was back - with them on the other side.

The tearing down of the Berlin Wall and the fall of the Soviet Union are among the too-rare proofs that good things can happen in world events. The Wall was erected before I was born and I never thought it would come down in my lifetime.

It is interesting to read the reports of the guys who were on the front lines, and how the U.S. ended up merely posturing, while millions behind that Curtain continued to suffer. (I read that the last armed opponent of the communist tyrants was captured in the mid 60s in Poland, 20 years after Yalta and Teheran.)
