IN KABUL, the air is so bad, it can be worse than Beijing’s – if you can believe it.
On Jan 21, The New York Times reported the story of air pollution in the Afghanistan city. For years, the newspaper said, there has been widespread belief by foreign troops and officials here that the problem is… feces.
Apparently, Canadian soldiers are warned about it in pre-deployment briefings, which cited reports that one test had found that as many as 30 per cent of air samples contained fecal particles.
Our reaction: Ewwwww.
