    It should also be noted that the BP oil spill was the second-largest, at about 572 square miles. The most disturbing thing about that Gulf War oil spill was that it was deliberate: Iraqi soldiers opened valves on an offshore oil rig in order to prevent American forces from landing. The oil was 4 inches thinck across the Persian Gulf.
