Idiots.

Hezbollah trying to manufacture weapons to attack Israel. I guess that plan blew up in their face...literally.

Sad so many have lost their lives over this preventable accident.

I'm sure you believe that because Israel can do no wrong, right?

No one knows, there's lots of theories including fireworks but that's likely a no.


Obviously explosives of some kind that are rumoured to have been there since 2014.


Until they investigate and figure out what it was exactly, everyone is guessing.


But you also don't need to fan any flames of stupidity by making idiotic claims.

1. The truth may sound idiotic to you, but that does not make it any less of the truth.

2. Israel will be blamed for everything.

Until it's investigated, it's not truth but bs.

They haven't blamed Israel for this that I've seen. Most of it is internal blame so far.


Seriously, can you go one day without lying and making a jackass of yourself?

I'm just responding to a previous claim your friend made.

Well, you aren't my friend, and Torchy certainly isn't...


Hot damn, you're on a roll today for wrong!

I doubt we will ever know the truth. There will be an investigation which will uncover some findings. 1/2 the people won't believe it. Conspiracy theories will multiply exponentially. And in the end everybody will believe their own convenient truths.

Yup. I should not have taken the bait, in retaliation of the forum religious zealout claiming Israel was responsible. It's entirely plausible that this was just a horrible accident. My prayers go out to the thousands of casualties.

You nailed it. People will choose to believe whatever fits their agenda, in many cases.

Beirut has industry and shipping.

Beirut has large-scale paramilitary groups.

Lebanon has an army.

Beirut has plenty of things going on the Israelis would like to see stopped.

Coulda been any of those.

I'll be content with whatever the investigation concludes. If they positively nail down this incident to one of those four causes, that don't mean the other three don't exist, just that they weren't responsible for this one.

For perspective, Timothy McVeigh used two tons of ammonium nitrate in the Oklahoma City bombing. Lebanon stored 2750 tons of the same materiel near residential neighborhoods in Beirut.

For perspective, the blast was at the harbor, which argues pretty strongly it was a ship going up.

Just like what happened in Texas City, Texas, in 1947.

This blast has more in common with the Halifax munitions ship explosion in 1917, that leveled half of the city. 2,000 people died out of a total population of 95,000. For comparison sakes, Beirut has over 2,000,000 people.

The death toll could easily be in the tens of thousands, when all is said and done.

Maybe that's where they stored all those old Samsung phones.

So something explodes somewhere and someone living somewhere in Canada not only knows what exploded but why?

What an amazing internet we live in.

Amazing, and yet Groper STILL can't find the money he promised to our veterans. But boy, let something happen in a foreign country and there's good ol' Prince Groper of Canada, finding millions to send them.
