This week on Talk World Radio, we’re talking about burn pits. Our guest Kali Rubaii is an assistant professor of anthropology at Purdue University, researching the environmental health impacts of war. She did research among farmers from Anbar, Iraq, in 2014 and 2015, documenting the environmental effects of the 2003 U.S. occupation. She is currently in Fallujah conducting research on the epidemic of birth defects in the region.

  1. Thank you for the Falujah burn pit episode, David. I followed it through and gave money to the skatepark for kids in Baghdad. I also was appalled by the photos of babies born in Fallujah. Man, do we ever owe them incredible reparations.

  2. I see that Saggy the neo-Nazi Holocaust-denier is still allowed to post here. Oh, well. Since the left has lost its mind, I guess it’s par for the course.

  3. Saggy the neo-Nazi Holocaust-denier is allowed to sully these pages. What does that say about David’s commitment to peace and non-violence?
