    *I understand their rage… I even share it as an empathetic human being that lives thousands of miles away.* πŸ’”

      Rage Over WHAT. Those explosives were NO SECRET. Beirut was living on an Active Volcano and No One Cared… until Now – oopsy… our bad.
      They probably saved them to make bombs against Israel.

  6. I’m sure t’rump supporters are going to claim those protesters are all “antifa, rioting, anarchists” too. πŸ€”πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

  7. All around the globe, the craziness continues…

  8. I will be very angry too if i was there, the government should hold responsible for what had happened and compensate all the damages to the people who are affected

  9. This is a global pandemic of citizens who are fed up with their country’s government. Stay strong, Beirut!

      What about the people of Portland ? Democrat anarchists there are still rioting and burning after the feds left , and it’s been going on for over two months

      @Saynoto Socialists Quiet serf, those are “peaceful protests.” It doesn’t matter that just this week they blocked the doors of a police precinct and tried to burn the building down with officers inside. Either you goose-step to the woke racist narrative or you keep your mouth shut, peon.

    Counter-protesters? … Russians sent by ASSad.

    Beirut’s Government: we will hunt the down the group responsible for this act of terrorism and unimaginable evil.
    Beirut’s Government (a few hours later): I’d wish to retract my previous statement. -Sorry guys, we’ve messed upπŸ˜‰πŸ˜…πŸ˜˜

  15. What

    You can’t blame as them. They have every right to be furious. . Absolute negligence.

  16. Here is hoping they find their way to a better government.
    For America too.

      That is why the Great President of Mexico with his Great People of the Great country of Mexico (and great violent
      Marxist revolutionaries and great systemic corruption and great murderous drug cartels) want you to return home to them.

    • @Hildebeast Clinton Even the US without Cartes is looking bad right now lol

    • Bruce strkland | August 9, 2020 at 8:51 AM | Reply

      And the world

    • @R3y 1245 add don’t you believe it we have only got a handful of marxist terrorist thugs
      That we’re going to deal with don’t worry

      Have you ever bothered reading facts? US COVID19 Mortality: Based on death certificate data, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia, influenza or COVID-19 (PIC) decreased from 8.1% during week 27 to 6.4% during week 28, representing the twelfth week of a declining percentage of deaths due to PIC. The percentage is currently above the epidemic threshold and will likely change as more death certificates are processed, particularly for recent weeks.

    The people of the harbor were warning the government for years about the dangerous situation. So logic that they are very very angry

    • Marcus Anderson | August 9, 2020 at 10:04 AM | Reply

      There needs to be means to override government official decisions that the people themselves can leverage. We have the technology to easily say yay or nay as a collective to dumb political decisions.
      Politics: Let leave 3000 metric tons on the edge of the city, yes?
      People (using politically sanctioned social media, in mere seconds): NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! *Overrides dumb decision*

      It shouldn’t take years of indecision using “passing the buck” politics.

    This is the ultimate result of 15 years of civil wars. Not just a problem of elites.

    The Middle East is starting to look like America!

  20. That’s horrible, and Beirut was a slice of heaven before all this happened…
