    God bless all the families that have lost loved ones…..

  11. That explosion was gigantic, it’s had to believe this was accidental …

    • Not if you know what ammonium nitrate can do with a simple ignition source. Timothy McVeigh was not a rocket scientist, but he knew what this could do with a very simple set up. This happened in Texas in 2013. But luckily it was in a very small populated town:
      Also World War 2 had this type situation: *https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/fertilizer-explosion-kills-581-in-texas* There are supposed to be local regulations about the storage of the chemical, so these things don’t happen. Beirut, similar to donald trump’s *MAGA* has a corrupt and fascist government, which does nothing to protect it’s citizens, this is where America is headed for if they keep voting for an orange colored monster named trump.

  12. He just described Trump and our potential future

  13. This is possibly the same as or worse than the 1921 Oppau explosion at the fertilizer plant https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oppau_explosion

  14. 25 years of incompetent, inefficient, dishonest, uncaring, and largely corrupt sectarian, oligarchy governments ….sounds like the GOP to me.

    Who Cares blame it on American racism

    And it Can happen here for the very same reasons!

    This man is describing America if trump is reelected.

  18. This is what happens when taxpayers money disappears into the pockets of the elite. The same thing will happen in America (it’s already happening but it will get much, much worse) if Trump gets another term.

    This is what happens when regulations are cut by corrupt leaders everywhere, this includes USA’s corporations.

  20. 25 years of incompetent, inefficient, corrupt, dishonest, uncaring, government. Has the Trump family been over there?
