    “The source of the explosion was initially believed to be a major fire at a warehouse for firecrackers near the port in Beirut…”firecrackersr-r-i-i-i-ight. “The blast sent up a huge mushroom cloud-like shockwave and damaged buildings miles from the port, including… CNN’s bureau in downtown Beirut.” That’s a shame (said in a Jerry Seinfeld tone of voice.)

    Word on the street it was a dump truck driving through a nitro glycerin plant.

    Lebanese officials say lots of things. They’re almost as duplicitous as Adam Schiff.
    We’ll never know what really happened.

    Even if it was ammonium nitrate, what started it?

    I wonder, does Antifa have a chapter there?
