Taliban to be "fenced" in

Having utterly failed in quashing the rising tide of Taliban fighters along it's western border Pakistan has put forth an odd plan. They'll build a fence... A 1500 mile long fence... Said fence will be cheerfully bolstered by land mines and will have secure breakpoints to allow cross border traffic to and from Afghanistan.
