    Nitrates would explain the secondary explosion and quickly dispersed mushroom cloud but DAMNED.

      @VK RGFAN I’m also very curious to know where in any of my comments have you found evidence to presume that accusing someone of being a Russian provocateur equates to accusing them of being insidious villains? I quite purposefully never assert that someone who is adversarial to my best interests is also necessarily evil or dishonest by default.

    • @Colin Cleveland Trump said he doesn’t know what it is. The US Generals call it an attack, and this was clearly an attack on a chemical plant in the center of a city. Why would you not attack something known for years to contain explosive chemicals. Very Christian of me? Perhaps. But if you wanna bring religion into it, then trusting Lebanese officials over American Generals is very Muslim of you and your fellow Democrats. Thanks.

      @MilkCow British, Conservative, atheist.
      But, to be fair, I am Left of you and Trump.
      It was in no way _very clearly an attack_

    • @Patrick Aalfs What exactly did Mueller report proved? By the way are you aware that 3.13 million of Russians live in the United States? Do you think we would vote for Hillary based on her hostility toward Russia and threats to overthrow legitimate government in Syria, which would jeopardize lives of millions of people, including minority groups. You also have to think what kind of rhetoric those so called politicians are projecting and what is their goal? You can call us Russian Bots all you want, but we have our right to vote the way we choose. Many voted for Trump not because he is bright individual, but because he is the only anti war candidate at that time. Nevertheless, his presidency opened a can of worms, they want to close that can of worms by installing Biden, and pretending like nothing ever happened. What Russian hackers did is they broke into Hillarys private server and leaked all her emails which contained information that she is corrupt. If she wouldn’t be corrupt, she wouldn’t need to hide anything on private server.

    • @Ryan lex you’re a moron if anyone is behind this it’s obviously Israel

    The prime minister of lebannon said those responsible would pay, stop with the misinformation

    • Thats because they have received warnings since 2014 to get rid of the ammonium nitrate. Someone will face the death penalty for sure.

    • @PKay Gray nahhh your talking about 10 million years for all the lives they have taken

    • Well , of course he is gonna say that ,since the ones responsible is his own government officials for allowing corruption to roam free … and will try to pin this on anyone else other than him and anyone on his administration that is supposed to not allow the massive storage of these chemicals with so little oversight 🤷🏻‍♂️

    • It a inside jobs

    Now might be a good time to check with your local leaders that something like this doesn’t happen in your neighborhood!

    • It happens in Texas a lot!! And thanks to Trump environmental restrictions have been taken away.

    • David Jimenez | August 4, 2020 at 7:34 PM | Reply

      PKay Gray …sometimes I think we do not have a chance as a species. Too many people working against us and the planet.

    • David Jimenez It happened here in Phoenix, Arizona first at an Amazon Plant and a train crash with both releasing hazardous chemicals in the air just 2 weeks ago.

    • Orlando DeJesus | August 5, 2020 at 12:20 AM | Reply

      It’s the current leaders that allow situations like this to happen. Trusting these so called leaders is the problem

    Then why the initial mushroom cloud and the shockwave blast reaching all the way to Cyprus??

    • Pippy longbottoms | August 4, 2020 at 7:38 PM | Reply

      Due to all of the nitrate combustion happened so fast that the energy released was of massive explosion is how that happenes

    • Lebanon and Cyprus are actually quite close I think your talking 30 km at most still very far but ye

    • Mackers Cyrus is actually about 150km (100miles) from Lebanon. Cyrus is closer to Turkey than Lebanon. But to hear a blast from that far away means that the Sonic wave of the explosion likely damaged people’s hearing who were close to the blast. It also killed people who within a mile from the explosion.

      Mini Nuke. There was a Jet heard before the shockwave seconds after. Israel Mossad (CIA). Profits of War.

  5. Looks like a nuke went off

    • This ain’t even half of what a nuke could do. The bomb dropped in Hiroshima was like 45 times more powerful than this.

    • Ammonium nitrate and fuel oil are what McVie used in Oklahoma City. Farmers have used it to blow stumps out of the ground.

    5.4 million lbs of chemicals. Only man could do something like this. We keep on killing our home. SMH

    • It’s not our home, if anything it belongs to every other species that aren’t humans. because death and destruction for every species including our own, hope we just take ourselves out and let mother nature begin the cycle again.

      @Paedmonn we are not from here

    • we are the fruit of the universe. western philosophy is what makes us feel as though we are not one with the universe; it all started with the concept of atomus, breaking down all to parts. the only true atom is the whole universe as one

    • Don’t be fool guys. Same thing happen under Obama administration, where he bomb Libya in 2011/2012

  7. Nitrates? Thata do it, DAM go inside close the door

  8. A truck full of nitrates blew up the Oklahoma City building.
    What we saw today is what it looks like when a building full of that stuff explodes.
    My thoughts go out to the people of Beirut. 🙏

    Imagine disliking this video

  10. 27 hundred tons of nitrates!!!😲
    Yup….that’ll do it.

  11. Oh my God I’m so sorry for everyone everything happening.❤

    Looks like something queen Cersei would do.

  13. Bet someone was lighting up a cigarette somewhere.

  14. As they should, something smells and it’s just not the air.
    They were stored there for this moment in time. It’s a cover up of some kind.

  15. 2700 Tons of ammonium nitrate stockpiled… in a warehouse right in the middle of the port… not being traded… just waiting for enough energy input to go off… just saying

    • Ammonium nitrate and fuel oil are what McVie used in Oklahoma City. Farmers have used it to blow stumps out of the ground.

    • The prime Minister must feel stupid right now. Looks like he’s going to have to bring his own people to jail

  16. Who you going to catch for explosion prime minister there all dead you fool

    As an American and as a human being. I feel for the victims and their families.

    As if we don’t have enough problems in the world. 2020 what a year it has been since the beginning.

  19. Where did the materials come from n from who who conficasted them who’s where they…………..

  20. If the Lebanon PM wants to investigate something, he needs to call Nasrallah and the Rest of his corrupt officials in for a meeting because they caused this. I mean Hezbollah has been hiding Iranian-made weapons and the Lebanese government has been turning the other cheek. SMH..
