"Kuwait is virtually the same size as Shikoku (the smallest of Japan's four major islands). Many believe the radioactive contamination from DU in Kuwait equals or exceeds that in southern Iraq. A fire in a US munitions repository in Doha in July 1991 burned stacks of DU rounds, reportedly causing massive environmental contamination. The US and Kuwaiti governments both stated at the time that the fire had "no environmental impact."

xposed, yup...
Shady, hey there :) Yeah I heard from someone who worked in the oil Co. that the guy who goes out to test for radiation levels stopped agreeing to get out of the helicopter and would just lower the detector device or whatever from the helicopter because the ground was so off the charts 'hot'.
Shemsi, thanks for the link..Code Pink has really grown over the years.
