War Left Behind

Iraqi refugees gather at a California coffee shop to discuss the decaying state of their home country. We hear about a US TV documentary that has traced Iraq’s current crisis back to the early days of the American-led invasion. Also, we meet an Israeli military reservist and a Palestinian peace activist living side-by-side in Washington, DC. And, we hear the story of a boy who fled violence in the Middle East, only to find a different kind of conflict in the American mid-west. Also, we learn about the linen armour that once protected ancient Greek warriors. And, we hear about one man’s career change, from military analyst to cheesemonger.
