  1. Economic and policy issues from the spill
  2. Public Health Threatened by the Oil Spill

In any oil spill, looking at the economic issues that are raised, the first parameter that is used is the number of gallons of oils that were spilt to measure the loss that was suffered in monetary terms. In the case of the gulf war oil spill of 1991, it caused the loss of millions of gallons of oil that could have been used for a longtime or raised a lot of money for the country. After the spill the American government blamed Iraq for the spill citing as the Gulf Warfare where the Iraqis were using oil as a tactic to fight against American troops. On the other hand Americans were blamed for the loss as the Iraqis asserted that the Americans were looking to cripple their economy through destroying their main source of wealth.
