    Do you think the puttingup of barbed wire to seperate cyprus from the turkish occupied lands is good??

    well BW, can' say I know much abou this situation, so I would have to say depends on the security issue. If there are people or forces who wish to cross these lines for the sake killing/destroying or provoking a war than I would say sure. Bit if not, probably not. again, though, I know very little

    I was reading a little on this.. some places say there is already barbed wire... Whats the story on this ? How did it start?

    Generally Id say that barriers like that are not as much of a deterrant than they seem. Armed guards are always better but even in open conflict like Israel that gets bad press.
