    Preliminary security information talks about 2,700 tons of confiscated ammonia in the port exploded during the process of welding a small hole to prevent theft

    Hopefully we get the military to set up a secure drop zone and our military starts dropping medical supplies and food. That city is wrecked.

    Thousands of pounds of confiscated ammonium nitrate. I hope whoever decided to store it there is held responsible.

    Beirut back in the news after decades of violence. Bet you it was munitions, not fireworks. The explosion cloud indicates immediate reaction similar to bunker busting ordinance.

    Ghastly. And Beirut already in bad shape, electricity mostly down, food shortages.

    With his usual stupidity and irresponsibility Trump declared it an attack although no evidence. He just thinks so.

    That's Trump's simple mind wanting desperately a simple explanation hence his fascination with conspiracy theories.

    Trump is President of the United States and hence what he says carries some real weight. Therefor, he should be more careful about what he says.

    Yes, but how many times are you going to say that before you realize he isn't gonna change? Talk about stuck in a rut.

    I don't give a shit what he says anymore. It's nonsense. I'm not going to let his words consume me because I can't control his words. I'm gonna live life and focus on other things.


    In this instance, yes, he is again being wreckless, but I will not let it deter or take focus away from the mourning the world should be engaged in right now for all the innocents hurt.

    Stay focused. Stay the course. He will not be President forever.
