    A Lebanese security offi
    cial says 2,700 Tons of Ammonium Nitrate was confiscated from a Russian tanker. They confiscated it years ago and stored it in the port by all accounts and now it goes kablooey cause of a nearby fireworks fire

      Oh Alright ok you English professor nerd whatever you say xD

    • @Oh Alright News is saying its Ammonium Nitrate

    • @Harlan Mcdiarmid No, it can catch fire and then will explode,then the shock wave will propagate through and break the nitrogen and oxygen bonds- which becomes a chain reaction through all of it. I think the expansion ratio may be around 1000 times,so one ship full of it becomes 1000 ships of gas expanding at about 2 miles a second= trouble.

      It’s too early to know for sure but Lebanons president says it was an accident. I’m sure on these videos a bunch of keyboard experts will provide their theories but bottom line is it’s too early to know for sure. I suspect the investigation will have a clearer answer within a few days or maybe a week from now.

      @Alex AKA A. Charles Ross Trump already said it was “terrorism”.

    I told my wife this morning when this first appeared on the news that it looked like a fireworks stock pile ignited a nitrate stockpile. Then it gets confirmed 12 hours later. I little bit of science knowledge and close examination of the videos will tell you what happened really quickly. Human error and negligence

  18. are there two blasts?
