If you understood your history, you'd know that wasn't so much a fence as a line of fortifications:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maginot_Line

Even when it was being constructed it was being criticized as not reflective of how war was changing.

Do they not teach recent history over there any more?

Do you think we need a border fence with Canada along with the existing fences along the southern border?

Yes, which is why I chose a system of boarder defense that did not go all the way.

Maybe you should have thought about it more?

The analogy does work in that both barriers don't do much to keep out who you are trying to keep out.

This where I could make a snarky comment about how conservative thought is a lot like the Maginot Line. But maybe you just did?
