2. The Pentagon is the world's largest single polluter, too......
And the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in Iraq are miserably and horribly polluted...with petrochemicals and DU and waste...since the war began. It is also dropping in depth, which is a disaster for the folks who rely on it.

Add that to the DU, the civilian deaths, the sectarian violence, the major drop in the status of women, and it starts to look as though the US owes Iraq at least what was spent on the war to try and repair some of the damage.

Can you say, "war crimes?"
