    I guess everyone forgot about Texas City blown off the map by a massive ship fire containing fertilizer. The right combination for a huge explosion

    It might be one of those chemical-situations where water isn't supposed to be used to put-out certain kinds of fires... like in China (of course) a few years ago. I've never seen an explosion like it.

    Fireworks? I don't think so. Possibly a huge shipment of ordnance. Israel? Turkey? Saudi Arabia?

    Where the ship was from will narrow down the possibilities.
    Endless possibilities, including covert shipments to Syria, the Syrian rebels, the KPP, Iranian proxies, a load of Russian or Chinese shit in transit to God knows where. How it got set off is just as big a mystery, FSB, Mossad, CIA, just a massive f&ck-up, no telling...and I doubt the real truth will emerge for a very, very long time, although there will be some explanation that is almost certainly complete BS.

    Al-Arabiya news network reports that the Beirut Blast was in an ammunition warehouse belonging to the Hezbollah terrorist organization.

    Texas City early 50s same situation, a ship docked caught fire and the local fire department was totally and completely disintegrated on the dock, the explosion was so bad it blew parts of the ship all the way to the Gulf Freeway falling onto cars on the roadways.

    They are claiming it was first "Fireworks", then admitting to what was in there, but saying it was "Peaceful" in intent and was there since 2014. But knowing it was owned by Hezbollah, my guess not for farming.

    Israel is deigning any involvement.

    Latest I heard from the BBC was it wasnít a ship but a warehouse known to house NH4NO3 for six years but nothing was ever done about it.

    ď Officials are blaming highly explosive materials stored in a warehouse for six years.
    President Michel Aoun tweeted it was "unacceptable" that 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate was stored unsafely.
    An investigation is under way to find the exact trigger for the explosion. Lebanon's Supreme Defence Council said those responsible would face the "maximum punishment" possible.Ē
