Life in America, eh? These offshore disposal sites are bad, but I worry more about the biological weapons facilities located in several of our major cities much more.

Oh great! Our gov't is a believer of, "Out of Sight, Out of Mind." Did they think these would just "disappear?"

Not just the dumped bombs and munitions, but also every German 7C sub that got to the USA coast and got sunk by battleships and cutters following up on CAA spotter plane reports has a load of warshot torpedoes. Lots of explosive fun off the USA east, Gulf, and west coasts!

Yes, this stuff was discarded back in the day when you just tossed rubbish of any kind, anywhere. No one thought of what would happen to the stuff, or to the environment in the future. At least it wasn't acknowledged in public.
