DOCUMENTARY: “Fires of Kuwait” The largest NON-military mobilization in history of world
The documentary below was originally shown in IMAX theaters in the 1990’s following the first Persian Gulf War. The Borgan Oil field was set alight after Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait… And the firefight began 6 days after Coalition forces liberated Kuwait.
Today we had news….
“Islamic State militants have set fire to oil wells northeast of the city of Tikrit to obstruct an assault by Shia militiamen and Iraqi soldiers trying to drive them from the Sunni Muslim city and surrounding towns, a witness said. The witness and a military source said Islamic State fighters ignited the fire at the Ajil oil field to shield themselves from attack by Iraqi military helicopters.”
