Iraqi tank graveyard in the desert near Al Jahrah, Kuwait. This graveyard of tanks will bear witness for many years to the damage that war causes both to the environment and to human health. In 1991, during the first Gulf War, a million depleted uranium shells were fired at Iraqi forces, spreading toxic, radioactive dust for miles around. Such dust is known to have lasting effects on the environment and to cause various forms of cancer and other serious illnesses among humans.


Quote:
After the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, Saddam Hussein massed his army along the border between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. When the American Army attacked from the rear, the Iraqis had no where to go, and much of their army was destroyed. For several years, the "highway of death" pointed the way from Kuwait City to the Iraqi border along the highway from Jahra north to Abdaly. Today, the highways have been cleaned up, and the tanks have been collected into 'Tank Graveyards' like this one north west of Jahra along a military-only road called Iron Horse Road. This area is full of hundreds of tanks, trucks, artillery pieces and other heaps of rusted & busted metal. However the toxic and radioactive dust that remind behind after millions of depleted uranium shells were fired caused the most damage not only to humans but to environment as well.

They’re not just tanks; in some cases, they’re coffins, relics and tombs to those killed while serving aboard them, and the U.S. doesn’t want to bring them home because it costs less to let

Re: Iraqi Tank Graveyard

Repair the better ones, sell them to third world countries. The ones that are finished, you can make a crap load on scrap, as military hardware like tanks are heavy in steel!
