Elite firefighters from around the world extinguish hundreds of burning oil wells in Kuwait, set by the retreating Iraqi military. The massive pillars of fire and their never ending plumes of black smoke blot out the sun of the desert landscape. The images are spectacular, the story, mostly consisting of "big machines", not so much.
