The Highway to Hell

After setting the oil wells on fire, the Iraqi soldiers fled Kuwait by the fastest means possible, the main highway back to Iraq. These soldiers took with them the goods they had looted from both private homes and businesses (appliances, TVs, VCR's, gold, cars anything of value). Their convoy was intercepted and the results of the firefight is shown above. Afterwards while checking for wounded, our soldiers found that every vehicle was packed with stolen goods from Kuwait.
