    Horrific. Israeli disproportionate response. War criminals. Sleepy Woke Joe’s first act should be to close the US embassy in Jerusalem.

    Reading up on it they say it's a place that houses "firecrackers".  I've never seen a fireworks building do that when it went off.

    There was a fireworks facility in China that blew up like this a couple years ago, so it definitely could be...

    I'll be honest w you and say that doesn't look like the explosion in Lebanon.  This explosion had concussion behind it.  Reminded me more of the chemical plant that went up.

    There is more to that explosion than just fireworks.  That red smoke plume must mean something?

    Supposedly from what I read, building next door to fireworks stored nitrate. Double boom factor.

    Or you can believe Israel and they stored weapons there?

    Ammonium Nitrate is used as a fertilizer and an explosive or like you said, for fireworks.

    That is a lot of boom though.  Wow.

    I see what you’re saying.  Not an explosive expert, so I have no idea :)  Crazy, though...I would have pissed myself if I was one of those people videoing this when it went up!

    edit: they are currently saying (and they are officials in lebanon) extremely explosive materials were being stored in a warehouse at the port, which somehow caught on fire, currently thinking is ammonium nitrate. 

    at least 30 dead and hundreds injured. hospitals are at capacity and turning injured away, telling them to go to the hospital in Tripoli.

    Red Cross says at least 50 fatalities and likely source of explosion was munitions/ explosives storage.

    Yeah. And already they are looking for those responsible (I can't see how regulators aren't ultimately responsible). Apparently this was stored there for years, and nobody ever did anything about it. This is definitely a result of gross negligence from what I've read.
    Apparently their port is destroyed. Aside from the loss of life and injury, it seems this will likely totally devastate their already disastrous economy. Very very sad.

    Whoosh, that went over your head.  Of course they’ll write on it, but no white guy = no narrative.   No marches, no looting, no fires.  Same violence, same death, same mourning families though.  Burger King and CVS are safe for another night.  Wonder if they surround the hill with barbed wire fences when a follower of the Nation of Islam is at fault.  Serious question.

    WASHINGTON — The man who police say rammed his car into a security barrier at the U.S. Capitol on Friday and was fatally shot by police after emerging from the vehicle with a knife was a lifelong athlete who in recent months had shown growing support on social media for Louis Farrakhan and the extremist Nation of Islam group.

    find it odd that in the several articles I read on this , not one listed his race. we are to infer he is black( I assume) given the reported support or infatuation with farrakhan
