It was a mushroom cloud, but, it wasn't nuclear. That's what happens with the Rayleigh-Taylor Instability axiom, i.e., hot gas rises up quickly to meet cooler, heavier air above, and gets flattened into the form of a mushroom. That does not take away from the devastation, by no means. It does explain, however, how the blast looked to many like it was a nuclear explosion. It, moreover, does not mean that toxic chemicals can't be dissipated in the air from the blast.
Let's go back in time to late 2013 when the Moldova-registered and Russian-owned ship (Igor Grechuskin), the Rhosus, left Georgia loaded with "agricultural material" heading through the Bosporus to Mozambique. By 2014, it had managed to cross the Eastern Mediterranean and encountered tempestuous waters south of Turkey. Brutalized by the turbulent waters around Ikaria Island, the tub made it to Beirut harbor where it sought haven. The Lebanese authorities seized the ship and its cargo arguing that the boat had not sent any messages about its route and noting it was carrying agricultural material which could be used interchangeably as explosives. Such was the material used in the Oklahoma bombing of the Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995 which resulted in scores killed and the execution of Timothy McVeigh. The ship was confiscated, but, the crew was not allowed to disembark because of fears its members could slip into Lebanese society without any trace. The crew members were eventually released by order of the Justice Minister who ordered the whole group repatriated.
The aftermath of the bombing by Zionist spies and saboteurs.
That should have been the end of the story. Zionist spies had taken note that the cargo, all 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate, was removed from the ship and stacked into Hangar 12 at the Port of Beirut. That information was logged by the MOSSAD which viewed its presence as an "opportunity" yet to be exploited. But, as the years developed and Iranian influence was increasing, the Zionist Apartheid State concluded that the time had come to put an end to Iran's presence in Lebanon, once and for all. It was one thing to strike at Iranian targets, specifically arsenals in Syria, but quite another to effectively rid Lebanon of its Persian guests by turning the people perfervidly against their very existence and a fortiori, against their proxies, Hizbullah.
My source tells me that the stacking of ammonium nitrate in Hangar 12 was an invitation to Zionism to ignite it. Interestingly, one Lebanese Director of the Beitut Port Authority, Shafeeq Mir'iy wrote five letters begging for government intervention because the situation at the port had become, well, explosive. He wrote the letters on December 5, 2014, May 6, 2015, May 20, 2016, October 13, 2016 and October 27, 2017. After that, he was replaced by Badri Dhaaher who will probably be the next lamb of sacrifice if history teaches us anything.
The explosion took place at around 9:15 a.m. Beirut time. My source tells me that a car filled with C-2 was parked close to Hangar 12, but, was not expected to ignite the ammonium nitrate. Instead, it was meant to trigger the explosion by setting off a fire inside a storage facility filled with Chinese-made fireworks. That's all it took. It was not a welder innocently starting a fire. It was not a mouse biting into electric wiring. This was an intentional act of mass murder by the homicidal fanatics of the Zionist Settler State - the sociopaths, the psychos from Central Asia pretending to have a history in the Near East.
If the Lebanese government were to properly investigate this event, it would have to probably argue that the operation was an act of war. That would compel their politicians to align themselves with HZB. The Lebanese government cannot do that lest it be dragged even more into the mire of the Zionist-Arab conflict. Being a corrupt country with a Stage 5 metastatic corruption pathology, Lebanon will stay mum and bite the bullet while aiding the Zionist thugs in their efforts to banish all traces of Iranian influence in Lebanon.
The unlucky PM of Lebanon, Hassaan Diyaab, promises accountability. Who do you think will be the lamb of sacrifice? We are taking bets. Somebody must be held accountable. Pick up the usual suspects.
Ron: Doya ever wonder why the neo-Pharisees are allowed to bomb Lebanon and Syria whenever they feel like it without repercussions? I do.
