Great Wall of China

“Great Wall” redirects here. For other uses, see Great Wall (disambiguation).
The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China to protect the Chinese states and empiresagainst the raids and invasions of the various nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe. Several walls were being built as early as the 7th century bc;[3] these, later joined together and made bigger and stronger, are now collectively referred to as the Great Wall.[4] Especially famous is the wall built 220–206 bc by Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. Little of that wall remains. Since then, the Great Wall has on and off been rebuilt, maintained, and enhanced; the majority of the existing wall is from the Ming Dynasty.
Other purposes of the Great Wall have included border controls, allowing the imposition of duties on goods transported along the Silk Road, regulation or encouragement of trade and the control of immigration and emigration. Furthermore, the defensive characteristics of the Great Wall were enhanced by the construction of watch towers, troop barracks, garrison stations, signaling capabilities through the means of smoke or fire, and the fact that the path of the Great Wall also served as a transportation corridor.
The Great Wall stretches from Dandong in the east, to Lop Lake in the west, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia. A comprehensive archaeological survey, using advanced technologies, has concluded that the Ming walls measure 8,850 km (5,500 mi).[5] This is made up of 6,259 km (3,889 mi) sections of actual wall, 359 km (223 mi) of trenches and 2,232 km (1,387 mi) of natural defensive barriers such as hills and rivers.[5] Another archaeological survey found that the entire wall with all of its branches measure out to be 21,196 km (13,171 mi).[6]

    • heh,
      There are very few Mexicans in China, but the Great Wall has less to do with it than the Pacific Ocean.
      Historically the Great Wall was a failure since Ghengis Khan’s grandson Kubalai Khan conquered China and was their first non Han emperor.
      That said, we do need to fix this immigration problem.

  1. ‘One standard for the Jew. Another one for yew!
    If the Jew social, political and media machine says a wall doesn’t work why did THEY BUILD ONE (with American tax money) entirely around Israel to keep out the Palestinians???

  2. All it takes is–catch intruder and send them back–no driving license no welfare no free medical care. Hire bounty hunters. Wake up America/Fag-you got a stooge as Presidunce.

  3. This women is stupid, the wall in China was built to keep invaders out. DO NOT build a wall between the US of A and wet back land. Take the US troops in Korea and put them on the south border and order them to shoot to kill unless the person has official papers. PROBLEM SOLVED

  4. To everyone saying how stupid Rep Bachmann is for this statement — you’re doubly stupid for believing an obviously made-up quote. I’ll eat my words if you can find a source of this.
