Clearly, Greenpeace and the Sierra Club should be pissed about this:
Orange flames could be seen Thursday on the horizon in the direction of the southern Iraqi oil center Basra, and U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said three or four oil wells may have been set afire.
Witnesses in Kuwait about eight miles south of the border said the flickering flames were spotted after a series of explosions that shook buildings in the area.
The Arab satellite television channel Al-Arabiya reported that fires had erupted in Iraq’s al-Rumeila field west of Basra and just north of the Kuwaiti border.
I expect them to take to the streets any minute now.
