The article I read said Trump thinks it was a bomb and Lebanese officials think it may have been caused by confiscated sodium nitrate stored at the port.

President Trump stated it was some kind of bomb. A bomb is something someone made and they intended to use. This has a history of Iranian explosives, provided to proxies, and ending up in Marine Barracks. Someone used the fireworks cache to detonate this shipload of high explosives.
:Logic dictates this was Iran building a retaliation bomb for what has been taking place in Iran. If this had reached the intended target, it would have been this mushroom cloud in Tel Aviv, the Golan, or an American port city. Just as on 9 11, the United States would be either backing the Jews or moving to another trillion dollar war, and Iran will be the target.

China has vital oil interests in Iran and Russia has vital military presence. We are all in a game of consequences, and the stakes raise with each round of bets.

That's a silly location to be keeping explosives like that.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

The videos are crazy. I wasn't buying the fireworks narrative this morning. Just read it was 6 tons of ammonium nitrate that exploded. It had been stored there for 6 years too

The story on OAN this morning is that 2,750 metric tons of ammonium nitrate had been stored for six years at a port warehouse. What caused the initial fire is unknown but that s what detonated the ammonium nitrate.


Eh...wot?

12 thousand pounds of 46-0-0 would make a boom, but not like that. That was way more...

i heard 2,750 metric tons of ammonium nitrate. That's over six million pounds. That would make a bigger boom than just twelve thousand pounds.
