    Crazy watching all the debris blow off the buildings in the foreground, and destruction if the rear windows, balconies, fire escapes, etc.

    Dangerous Chemical Containers Still Leaking At Destroyed Beirut Port; Initial Cause Of Fire Revealed

    More has been learned and confirmed about what precisely started the deadly fire which detonated the highly explosive and volatile ammonium nitrate, commonly used in fertilizer and professional explosives.

    Lebanese media as well as Reuters has widely reported the fire started after welding work was done in the very warehouse containing the volatile chemical compound.

    It appears the welding crew had no idea that both ammonium nitrate and (astoundingly) a cache of fireworks were being stored on site.

    "There are many problems with this account. For starters, the Georgian ammonium nitrate firm Rustovi Avot, which allegedly exported the ammonium nitrate seven years ago, has only been active in ammonium nitrate for the past three years."

    What exactly does that change? The AN still came off that same ship 7 years ago and has been sitting in Lebanon every since. There is no dispute there.

    Ok, so this makes more sense as far as detonating the AN, which is not easy to do... a LARGE cache of fireworks stored in the same warehouse in close proximity to the AN detonated all at once initiating the AN. There is a smaller explosion about 30 seconds prior to the big one which one assumes is a portion of the cache of fireworks... then the rest went all at once.

    I wonder if the explosion had any influence on the finalization of the Israel / United Arab Emirates deal. Looking for some stability in an unstable region.

    Other than a couple of off hand references I was surprised I did not see many fingers pointed at Israel for the explosion. Seems like the Lebanese are capable of F'in up their country all by themselves.

    So cooking oil caught fire... How in the hell does that happen? That's not an easy oil to accidentally ignite. Its not like a stray cigarette is gonna touch it off.
