Roland's interveiw's
The Emperors didn't care for anyone.
He always took poor farmers and made them work.
Everyday and night without rest.
Great! Now when they die they are built into the wall.
Right now they are probably skeletons.
Eventually the wall had to be finished.
(After 20,000 years)
The Great Wall was finished in the 5Th century.
While the wall was built for defence
All it did was defend for a tiny bit.
Like the Mongles,
Like the Mongles takeing over.
Over the safe side of the Great Wall some idiot opened the western gates.
For money,
China was taken over
Have they no mercy?!?!?
I think the wall was a wast of time
Now it is under control by China again!!!
A stupid use.
