    Our entire island of Kaho'olawe is covered with unexploded ordinance after the military bombed the heck out of it for decades.

    In fact my husband was one of the Hawaiian activists that would go over there (he steered the outrigger canoe) to stop the bombing.

    At one point they decided to see how big an explosion they could create and blew a huge crater in the top of the island, cracking the layer of rock with kept the aquifer separated from the salt water.

    Now there is no more water on Kaho'olawe.

    One has the sneaking suspicion that "military exercises" are just an excuse for these guys to get their jollies from massive destruction.  Wish they'd go play computer games to blow things up digitally instead.
