No, it isn't. Escaping from the Gestapo was risking life to save your life.

If it had been a single fence, it wouldn't have stopped anybody. The guard towers, dog runs and 100 yards of clear (shooting) space between fences had a lot to do with it. They rarely shot anyone though. They usually just put the dogs on them.

I have no idea. Never an escape attempt while I was there. Going by locals. Odd how the guards would hide when Americans were around. Probably would have been a good time to escape.

My favorite fantasy is a vaporizing laser system on both borders. No fuss, no muss, no burial fees, no transportation fees, no legal fees, just a big puff of smoke as you're instantly toasted. The perp's minerals will enrich the ground they drop to.

And the borders could serve as a weapons testing ground. I like it!
