Burning daylight—thought these were tornadoes, I think those are the burning oil wells in Kuwait during the Gulf War. Iraq set fire to more than 600 of them as they retreated from Kuwait during the Gulf War in 1991
Oil Fields, Sky, Multiple Tornado, Tornadoes, Mother Nature
Phenomenon. Multiple Tornados. Doesn't happen often or in many places. A force not to be reckoned. Run! Destruction is a guarantee. EXPOSED HOAX: Iraq burning oilfields.
Oil wells set on fire during operation Desert Storm! Thought if these were real tornadoes it would complete the picture of pure hell ! Mother Nature had a lot of help
Kuwait or Iraqi oil fields burning after Desert Storm. CORRECT: this is often labelled as "multiple tornadoes" but is in fact a photo of the burning oil wells
This is the Kuwait oil fields burned by the retreating Iraqi forces near the end of the 1991 Persian Gulf War.This is often labelled as "multiple tornadoes" but is in fact a photo of the burning oil wells. One of the worst environmental disasters ever.
Some pinners have this pinned as tornados but they are not. This is a picture of a burning oil field at Ahmadi Oil Fields, Kuwait, 1991.
Multiple Tornadoes .....just like my dream , yeah I know it's oil fields. STFU it was my dream. ( I KNOW IT'S A BURNING OIL FIELD!!!)
Tornados? These are oil field fires in Kuwait, darkening the skies...

Oil spills become the top news story whenever they occur. Costing billions of dollars to clean and fines to the company responsible it is an unwanted catastrophe. Not only does the company involved pay the consequences but thousands of innocent animals and ecosystems.

People are still working hard to determine a method of remvoing the oil from the water and possibly even preventing oil spills from happening in the first place. One solution could be to use a material that absorbs oil. Although I'm not sure a material like this even exists, it can probably be made by scientists. The material could be placed near offshore drilling sites to collect the oil if there was ever a spill.

Operation Desert Storm placed the new Military and some old Vietnam Veterans together. I was fortunate to serve with some old vets that guided me through some tough times.
The Gulf War (2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991), codenamed Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) was a war waged by coalition force from 34 nations led by the United States against Iraq in response to Iraq's invasion and annexation of Kuwait.

The Devil's Cigarette Lighter was a natural gas well fire at Gassi Touil in the Sahara Desert of Algeria. Ignited when a pipe ruptured on November 6, 1961, the Phillips Petroleum Company-owned well produced more than 6,000 cubic feet of natural gas per second, whose flame rose between 450 feet and 800 feet. The flame was seen from orbit by John Glenn. The blowout and fire were estimated to have consumed enough gas to supply Paris for three months, burning 550,000,000 cubic feet per day.

In a nation of booming health costs, most focus is placed on aging Baby Boomers. But there's another huge group facing a health crisis that's underfunded and still not full understood: the 175,000 to 250,000 Gulf War veterans suffering from Chronic Multisymptom Illness (CMI), more commonly known as Gulf War Syndrome.
