GOV. OF BEIRUT: “HALF THE CITY IS DESTROYED” BY EXPLOSION TUESDAY
Hal Turner Radio Show
The Governor of Beirut, Lebanon is saying that “half the city is destroyed” from the utterly massive explosion which took place there today.
Videos of the explosion show what appears to be a failed-to-maintain-critical-mass of a nuclear bomb. It BEGAN as a nuke blast, but fizzled when the chain reaction failed.
The initial blast wave is identical to the VAPORIZATION one sees in old films of actual, confirmed, nuclear test explosions. But the vaporization in Beirut today quickly ends, leaving a strange red-colored explosive plume.
Buildings for miles were literally flattened and cars on local highways were picked-up and flipped over by the blast.
Initial death count confirms 70 dead, and almost three thousand injured.
The Governor of Beirut also says that a fire crew on the scene “was vaporized” — the fire truck and men are simply non-existent anymore.
What do YOU know of that can vaporize a fire truck?
Even during the attacks of 9-11 here in America, with literally hundreds of tons of cement and steel collapsing onto fire trucks, the remains of the trucks were still found.
In Beirut . . . nothing. It’s all just gone.
Windows on buildings TEN KILOMETERS AWAY, were blown out.
What kind of “conventional” explosive can do that?
It should be noted that what took place in Beirut comes on the heels of several battles between the Hezbollah Government of Lebanon, and Israel. The Israelis have been fearing large scale reprisals by Hezbollah, after Israel killed Hezbollah leaders inside Syria.
Perhaps today’s explosion in Beirut was a message from Israel to Hezbollah warning them NOT to take reprisals?
It’s also very odd that almost immediately after this explosion took place, official Israeli government sources came out publicly to say “Israel had nothing to do with this.”
Gee. That’s nice. Especially since nobody asked. Very odd.
TRUMP SAYS “WAS ATTACK”
President Donald Trump said U.S. military generals have told him that they “seem to feel” the massive explosion that rocked Beirut on Tuesday, killing at least 70 people, was a “terrible attack” likely caused by a bomb.
Trump was asked why he called it an attack and not an accident, especially since Lebanese officials say they have not determined the cause of the explosion. He told reporters at the White House: “It would seem like it based on the explosion. I met with some of our great generals and they just seem to feel that it was. This was not a — some kind of a manufacturing explosion type of a event. … They seem to think it was a attack. It was a bomb of some kind, yes.”
Trump offered condolences to the victims and said the United States stood ready to assist Lebanon. “It looks like a terrible attack,” he said.
A Pentagon spokesman declined to comment on the matter Tuesday night, referring questions back to the White House.
The explosion flattened much of a port and damaged buildings across the capital, sending a giant mushroom cloud into the sky. In addition to those who died, more than 3,000 other people were injured, with bodies buried in the rubble, officials said.
The cause of the blast was not immediately known
UPDATE 11:00 PM EDT —
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) who are the people that track earthquakes, registered the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon today!
Before I reveal their findings, you should know that during the Attacks of September 11 here in the USA, the same USGS recorded the collapse of the World Trade Center as a Magnitude 2.1
The magnitude scale of earthquakes is not Linear, it is Logarithmic. That means a 2 is not simply one level stronger than a 1, a 2 is TEN TIMES stronger than a 1.
According to the USGS, today’s explosion in Beirut was recorded as a Magnitude 3.3 ! ! !
TWELVE TIMES MORE POWERFUL THAN THE COLLAPSE OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER IN NEW YORK ON 9-11!
Moreover, the USGS issued this very interesting statement about the blast:
The Beirut, Lebanon explosion was processed using the same basic methods that we use for regional earthquakes. To remove uncertainties in the location associated with seismic methods, we fix the location to the location seen in videos of the blast. Standard methods were used to calculate the magnitude. The reported magnitude is not directly comparable to an earthquake of similar size because the explosion occurred at the surface where seismic waves are not as efficiently generated.
You are smart people, let me ask you: What “conventional” explosive have YOU ever heard of that created the same shock waves as a Magnitude 3.3 earthquake?
