Carrying the Torch


The Olympic flame attracts athletes from across the world. This week on War News Radio, we hear the story of an Iraqi skeleton slider who has been trying for the last eight years to make it to these games.

Also, protests continue against cartoons that first ran in the Danish press, which many Muslims saw as profoundly offensive. We see how the controversy has played out in Denmark and in Iraq.

And a conversation with a graphic artist on how she represented the human cost of the Iraq War.

Finally, we ask the questions: How good are we at creating new democracies? And does Iraq fit the model? Find out what some experts have to say on the matter.

These stories, plus the week’s news, from War News Radio.
