Massive explosion in Beirut within the last hour, looks like a nuclear blast

I never even heard of that Texas City thing.
Man, that was fucked up. A billion in damages by 2019 standards.
Damn.

I once lived across the street from the entrance to the Texas City Dike, where the Grandcamp's main anchor landed.

I'm thinking it was more than negligence or accidental.

Quote:Someone took out Iran's entire supply of rocket fuel in Lebanon.

AND.

They greatly reduced the destruction by causing DEFLAGRATION instead of DETONATION.

Iran thinks it can hide weapons depots in civilian centers, because nobody will hit them.

WRONG.

New weapons, kids.

Designed SPECIFICALLY for destroying massive weapons depots in civilian centers.

The warheads were destroyed, and a fire first took out HALF of the octogen stock, and then the SECOND HALF was taken out.

After these incidents, claims of civilian casualties are always made.

My guess is all the dead were Iranians.

Yes, windows were broken.

Would you rather have broken windows or another war?

Trump says the Generals he met with seem to agree that it was an attack rather than a "manufacturing explosion" type of event...

"It was a bomb of some kind."

Just seconds after posting the above Trump said what he did about
meeting with generals on the live feed. Man, that's the LAST thing
we need right now. On top of everything else, a fucking war!

I think that dome shock wave is a mini nuke , there are a lot of them in storage from Cold War and they are meant for less than a square mile of total destruction

I've seen a few comments on YT saying that the blast registered a 3.3 on the Richter scale.
Their favorite number.

If fucking Trump was wrong and totally blowing it out his ass by calling this an "ATTACK" in front of the whole fucking world??

I'm about to be embarrassed by that fuckin' guy.

Then he misheard the one press lady who called his TikTok shit "unprecedented"... he thought she said "impressive".

It was just a complete pure and total all out narcissism moment that made me cringe deep and hard.

To better illustrate, this is what 145 miles of water looks like on a map.
