    I hate being a dreadful bore, but isn’t Warehouse 9 located on the opposite side of the grains silos?


    Those grain silos that largely withstood the Richter scale 3.3 blast at Warehouse 12.

    Soooo…how did the supposed explosion at ‘Hezbollah Warehouse 9’ jump the impenetrable grain silos and cause Warehouse 12 to detonate?

    Sticky wicket, what.

    1. @ Limey: The grain silos “withstood the blast?” Really, they look like a row of skeletons with their heads blown off. The only thing you can say about them is that parts of them remain vertical. Other than that, nothing.

      I’m really uninterested in 9/11 type speculation about buildings and why one fell or another didn’t. That’s getting way into the weeds, where of course you’d prefer to be in order to distract from the major issues.

      Do not publish again in this thread.

     what sort of weapon caused the desintegration (sic) of #9 .. explain that to me pls”

    Oui. I don’t know that a weapon destroyed Warehouse 9.

    Warehouse 9 does appear to have burned more than the other warehouses, but it doesn’t appear to have exploded.

    Warehouse 9 wasn’t exceptional. It was flattened same as all the warehouses at the Port.

    So, if Warehouse 9 was standing, and neither damaged or burning when Warehouse 12 detonated, than where does that leave Israel?

    Blameless, and deserving a proper apology, I say.

    Making the case that the explosion resulted from an attack

    The narrative that the Beirut explosion was an exclusive consequence of negligence and corruption by the current Lebanese government is now set in stone, at least in the Atlanticist sphere. And yet, digging deeper, we find that negligence and corruption may have been fully exploited, via sabotage, to engineer it.  Lebanon is prime John Le Carré …

  4. Usually the articles by Pepe Escobar are trustworthy … this time there are some crucial errors … furthermore the publication at the Saker is in a crowd with anti-semitic commentators … not happy with the link.

  5. Clearly it was Hizbollah’s fault. Their munitions. Their negligence. As for an Israeli attack. Well all we’ve got on that is an anonymous source who may or may not be telling the truth and who may or may not exist.

    1. @ Donald: Don’t you dare impugn my credibility or that of my source. Do that again and you will be moderated or banned. My source has a record of 100 or more accurate stories documenting Israeli national security abuses, excesses and even crimes. What do you have? Bupkis!

      1. I agree -100 percent. Also if the accusation against Israel is true, it is inevitable that sooner or later some strong and compelling evidence will emerge and enter the public domain. Now that time has passed we can see that evidence and it consists of.
