    With an explosion that big I'm surprised that only 78 people were dead.

    here's some stuff, look at the 1st video in the thread:

    https://twitter.com/i/status/1290737869104062469

    1 thing to note at the beginning. The guy filming, is in a boat. When the concussion hit him, it makes a wave in the ocean, aiming his camera straight into the sky. (tilting the boat)

    2nd camera, guy driving right into the fire, when the blast wave hits the car & flips it over.

    3rd camera, a guy driving on a bridge, distant. Once again, when the wave hits the car, it blows out the side windows & flips the car.

    Pay attention to the details, it was a blast...


    the harbor:

    before & after

    Hezbollah. Israel is scared shitless of these guys and they are in Lebanon and have kicked Israel's ass repeatedly. False flag to try and insinuate that Lebanon or Hezbollah are trying to get a nuke or some other imaginary nasty weapon when in reality it's Israel that has the nukes. Pretense to invade.

    Ammonium nitrate stored without safety precautions. Over 2,000 lbs. Most of you will know of similar explosions with Ammonium nitrate, both as bombs and accidental. Similar accident happened in another port, Texas City, TX, in 1947.

    that's the official word, but, before that, it was a fireworks factory...

    They said they measured Sodium Nitrate in the air, which is an isotope for N15 (nitrogen). Then they shifted to Ammonium, a fertilizer, but...

    Ammonium would have created a black smoke cloud, not a white moisture ball. The white moisture ball (I thought hydrogen at 1st) consumed what it hit...

    I guess time will tell, at least we hope the truth comes out if it isn't already. Out of curiosity, I dug a little and found an FBI training video about IED's, and amongst other explosives they set off several Ammonium Nitrate bombs. Each produced white smoke that later was mixed with the tan sand from the ground around it. I also found two rare videos, in black and white, of the actual explosion in Texas City in 1947. They both show a white mushroom cloud. Though different from the one in Beruit. So not 100% convinced black smoke is a sign of Ammonium Nitrate explosions. But I'm not a bomb or explosives expert. I'll wait and see what develops.
