For those interested in an update on military target maneuvers on the Caribbean island of Vieques,  
there is an excellent article: 

Juan Giusti-Cordero, "Vieques after September 11: KO'ed in the 12th round?," The American Prospect Online, November 26, 2001. 

This article can be found at: 


Vieques coral reefs have been described by marine scientists as being of global importance. Last year, Dr. Porter from the University of Georgia documented the coral reefs suffered serious impact from military practice maneuvers. Photo and article at:
