Not at all, but someone who thinks that firewalling provides any
reasonable measure of security hasn't been paying attention -
corporate firewalls are breached on a regular basis.  If your network
isn't inherently secure, slapping a firewall on the end isn't going to
make it secure.

Firewalling serves the purpose only of covering holes that shouldn't
be there in the first place.
