    Looks like the Port of Beirut didn't learn history from the Port of Galveston

    Early reporting and speculations based on it are not always right, let's wait till all the facts come out. There had been reports last week on their military tensions with one of our closest democratic allies in mideast.


    Israel's attacks violate UNSC resolution: Lebanon

    President Michel Aoun says Lebanon wiling to follow UNSC resolution but will defend itself against aggression

    Lebanon is prepared to defend itself against Israel’s attacks, which are in violation of the 2006 UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution, Lebanese President Michel Aoun said on Saturday.
    In a televised address, the president said Israel’s attacks in southern Lebanon had once again flouted UNSC Resolution 1701, which calls for full cessation of hostilities and Israel’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon.
    Aoun asserted that Lebanon remains willing to abide by the resolution and resolving all disputes under UN supervision.
    “We are committed to defend ourselves, our land, our water, and our authority. We will not compromise on this matter,” he said.
    The president’s comments come after Israeli forces bombed the border town of Kafr Shuba on July 27 because of a “security incident.”
    On the same day, Lebanon said it would lodge an official complaint with the UNSC.
    The Israeli military claimed it had “thwarted an infiltration attempt by Hezbollah” in the Jabal Ros area.
    Hezbollah, however, denied the claim, saying: “There was no clash or shooting on our part in the events that took place today on the southern border in Lebanon, but rather it was only one party which was the fearful, anxious, and tense enemy.”
    It also vowed to respond to the killing of one of its members in “Israeli aggression” in Syria’s capital Damascus last week.
    Israel has recently increased the number of troops along its northern borders in anticipation of retaliatory attacks by Hezbollah.

    Secondary explosions.. in the first fire..

    and then the main storage dump went up.

    Quite the Blast.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Wow! Beirut knows how to put on a firework show!

    and 75 years ago almost to the day Hiroshima was bombed.

    Must be more than fireworks stored in that warehouse.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said U.S. military generals have told him that they think the massive explosion that rocked Beirut on Tuesday, killing more than 70 people, was likely a bomb.

    That was my first thought, fireworks.

    You can see in the primary explosion and fire, fireworks going off at the base of the flames.

    The brown/black smoke from black powder and iron propellant and coloring are also a clue.

    Beirut (AFP) - Two enormous explosions devastated Beirut's port on Tuesday, leaving at least 73 people dead and thousands injured, shaking distant buildings and spreading panic and chaos across the Lebanese capital.

    The second blast sent an enormous orange fireball into the sky, immediately followed by a tornado-like shockwave that flattened the port and swept the city, shattering windows kilometres (miles) away.

    Prime Minister Hassan Diab said that 2,750 tonnes of the agricultural fertiliser ammonium nitrate that had been stored for years in a portside warehouse had blown up, sparking "a disaster in every sense of the word".
