Product description

A number of nations, conspicuously Israel and the United States, have been increasingly attracted to the use of strategic barriers to promote national defense. In Do Good Fences Make Good Neighbors?, defense analyst Brent Sterling examines the historical use of strategic defenses such as walls or fortifications to evaluate their effectiveness and consider their implications for modern security.

Sterling studies six famous defenses spanning 2,500 years, representing both democratic and authoritarian regimes: the Long Walls of Athens, Hadrian's Wall in Roman Britain, the Ming Great Wall of China, Louis XIV's Pré Carré, France's Maginot Line, and Israel's Bar Lev Line. Although many of these barriers were effective in the short term, they also affected the states that created them in terms of cost, strategic outlook, military readiness, and relations with neighbors. Sterling assesses how modern barriers against ground and air threats could influence threat perceptions, alter the military balance, and influence the builder's subsequent policy choices.

Advocates and critics of strategic defenses often bolster their arguments by selectively distorting history. Sterling emphasizes the need for an impartial examination of what past experience can teach us. His study yields nuanced lessons about strategic barriers and international security and yields findings that are relevant for security scholars and compelling to general readers.

What happened to that industrial development the report recommended. Oh yeah, it got put in industrial parks out on the county line and our current Mayor and City Council are all promoting the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite on the Randolph County line. Oh, in case somebody thinks they can make the report go away, I posted another copy online. A good "As you can plainly see, Greensboro's greatest families, the Cones, Richardsons, Dillards and Benjamins, for which streets, parks, buildings and hospitals are named, all did their part to destroy the Bessemer Community. And as evidenced in Bessemer Improvement Company vs the City of Greensboro , even the City took advantage of those who were working on behalf of Bessemer then passed the blame off on the state. The evidence is in the many links, screen grabs and documents presented. more documentation than ever given you by any media outlet in this city bar none. If you discount what I write or call me a liar without reading the documents I've provided then you're only to blame for your ignorance. Back to the First Community Planning Team Report of 1995:. Wait a minute. I know what you're thinking but poor people live here. The houses are old, we can't afford to hire "lawn boys" like they do in Irving Park when we're working as your lawn boys, maids, mechanics, nannies, cooks, labors and garbage men. We do the best we can, we kept things cleaned up and repaired our old homes the best we could on our minimum wage jobs working under the table because you Irving Park bastards like Nancy Barakat Vaughan were too cheap to pay our employer portion... And in the course of the last 20 years houses like my own have gone down in property value despite mine and my Daddy's best efforts to keep it up. What that doesn't tell you. That $500 outbuilding is 2 story, insulated, 12x16 384 sq ft with electricity easily converted into a small apartment. The house has real hardwood floors a new 96% efficient gas furnace, new central air, vinyl siding and is fully insulated with combined utility bills of less that $150 per month. The yard has a privacy fence, raised bed gardens, 100 year old oak trees and paved walk ways. And it's only worth $42,000. Across town the exact same home would be valued at $142,000. Let's go back to that report, shall we. So what happened. Why did East Greensboro only get worse over the course of the last 20 years. Could it be because EMSDC has to compete with Downtown, Megasites and industrial parks on the county lines to get employers and the jobs they bring to come to East Greensboro. Have we forgotten that 68% of the population of the City of Greensboro lives in East Greensboro. Could it be because of the way EMSDC is funded, forced to return to the trough every year to beg for money just to stay in business. In the past I've been highly critical of EMSDC and their forays into real estate investment, buying and selling properties and renting apartments as competing with the private sector and outside of the scope of what an economic development agency... If you know Mack Sims, forward him this post and tell him I take back everything bad I ever said and wrote about him and EMSDC. The proof is in, we've had 60 plus years of deliberate destruction of East Greensboro at the hands of Greensboro's elites. And let's not forget this 2013 piece, City Of Greensboro Fails To Provide Evidence Streetscaping Provides Positive Economic Impacts:. We have requested several departments to review your request to see if they had any information pertaining to your request. Unfortunately, the City has not measured the economic impact directly attributable to the East Market Street streetscape project. City of Greensboro" "The rumors are that the city is attempting to get Smith and Ray Warren homes sold to UNC-G and A&T Universities and converted into much more curb appealing student housing. Both of those properties are within close eye view of two major roads leading into the Council's precious downtown projects.

Mending Wall
Mending Wall
By Robert Frost. Something there is that doesn't love a wall, That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it, And spills the upper boulders in the sun, And makes gaps even two can pass abreast. The work of hunters is another thing: I have come after them and made repair Where they have left not one stone on a stone, But they would have the rabbit out of hiding, To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean, No one has seen them made or heard them made, But at spring mending-time we find them there. I let my neighbor know beyond the hill; And on a day we meet to walk the line And set the wall between us once again. We keep the wall between us as we go. To each the boulders that have fallen to each. And some are loaves and some so nearly balls We have to use a spell to make them balance: 'Stay where you are until our backs are turned!' We wear our fingers rough with handling them. Oh, just another kind of out-door game, One on a side. It comes to little more: There where it is we do not...
