Quaddafi’s forces reportedly bombed an oil refinery in Libya yesterday… but may have missed hitting the oil on target… maybe due to the serious and substantial defense committee, rebels with stolen anti-aircraft guns… see HERE and HERE

In the Gulf War, the Kuwaiti oil fires were caused by Iraqi military forces setting fire to 700 oil wells as part of a scorched earth policy while retreating from Kuwait in 1991 after conquering the country but being driven out by Coalition military forces. The fires started in January and February 1991 and the last one was extinguished by November 1991
