I Think A Missile Strike Appears To Have Destroyed West Texas Fertilizer Plant

Missile Strike Appears To Have Destroyed West Texas Fertilizer Plant

With everyone’s attention on the Boston Marathon bombings there have been a few events that occurred last week that have flown under the radar. On Wednesday April 17th 2013 there was an explosion at a fertilizer plant in West Texas that killed several people and injured hundreds. Raw video footage showing the plant on fire and the subsequent explosion shows what looks like a missile blowing up the complex. A very distinct sound can be heard right before the blast indicating that some sort of object traveling at a very high rate of speed was fired into the area. The corporate media has claimed that something inside the plant set off the larger explosion but if you carefully watch the footage it is obvious that this was not the case. The explosion was reported to have been felt up to 50 miles away and even registered 2.1 on the Richter scale creating an enormous mushroom cloud. This is similar to the Oklahoma City bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building which resulted in a 3.0 reading on the Richter scale. The blast left a crater 30 yards across and 15 yards deep. Barry Murry a local resident who lives a mile away from the plant compared the blast to a bomb going off when speaking with CNN and this is just one of several eyewitness accounts comparing it as such. Common sense would dictate that this type of seismic activity and the crater size could have only occurred with the use of a powerful missile or bomb and the video evidence certainly supports it.

This has got to be the worst theory I've heard of on the DP.

1) They were storing material there that can be used to make a bomb.
2) The building filled with the material used to make bombs caught on fire.

And your conclusion is, oh it must have been a missile.


It was more like a sign from God! No doubt!....(!-P

Most likely a test!

And that's all I want to say about that.

You guys need to do better research of open source information to conclude that this could definitely have been a test. And from the video evidence a successful one at that.

No I don't think we are interested in blowing up fertilizer plants that are on fire.


Come on DP'ers you can do it.

I'm not saying I know what happened, I'm saying the video evidence for a missile is very strong.

The Government Has tons of Buildings

on test sites that they could use to "test" a missile. Why would the government start a plant on fire then "test" a missile on it in a city?

MOST LIKELY its not a test but a fire that caused an explosion.


for yourself and stop blindly following AJ and conspiracy bloggers

I get why you think it was a missile

I saw the flash to the left on all the videos too. I don't think it was a missile.

What I think happened is smoke or the fumes within the smoke ignited. I know when we've had a large fire outside and a lot of smoke is produced sometimes you'll get this "WOOF" type explosion within the smoke.

Don't rocket stoves work by burning all the smoke too?

I'm not saying this is definitive but I think it's entirely possible that it was a chain reaction explosion from the smoke igniting.

Watch this candle be re-lit from the smoke being ignited

Sorry. I had to down vote this.

What lit the smoke? A flame!

A spark ....duh

haven't been around many campfires have you

OK Thimbleberry

Have you ever seen a spark travel against the prevailing wind?

The flash came from down wind

meaning the heat from fire was blowing toward the first explosion. Likely the heat from the fire ignited something and that set off the reaction.

That was clearly a hot fire

What you need is a fire expert to run your questions by. Any fireman can tell you how hot fires with hot smoke are much more dangerous and can spontaneously combust nearby materials. i think they call it flashover. Those poor firemen fighting that fire didn't have a shot at cooling it down.

That's pretty cool science there!


Not True

I'm an aerospace engineer who was raised around fertilizer plants (my father ran fertilizer plants).

It's NOT a missile. The wash of posts about this are obviously derailing something.

-quiet engineer

It must be true.

Look at the reaction of the trolls to this thread.

A missile hit it.

You need to raise your

You need to raise your standards for proof.

i want someone

Who actually believes that a missile hit this fertilizer plant to explain the logic behind who and why would decide to shoot a missile at a damn fertilizer plant. Because it makes about as much sense as a sober person hitting a drunk driver.

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

From what I read

They filed a lawsuit against Monsanto...but to take that, coupled with a whistling sound and turn it into "the fertilizer plant was hit by a missile" is just ridiculous.

I could *maybe* buy plain ol' sabotage (provided it were backed up with sufficient evidence), but there is no logical reason why one would shoot a missile at an already burning fertilizer plant. I mean, wouldn't *someone* have seen a missile in broad daylight?

There are missiles under development with speeds of thousands of miles per hour. A distraction such as a burning plant could easily keep most anyone from seeing such as fast moving object.


Freedom - Peace - Prosperity

The GOVT has thousands of acres of land with

abandoned bunkers and building and even cities that they could use to "test" missiles. Why would they target an occupied plant in the middle of the a city???????

A distraction is used to make people look another direction. A giant fire causes everyone to grab their cameras and film/watch the fire.

That would be the worst distraction EVER!!!!!

"under development"

There's a big difference between "under development" and "available".

Could you link me to some relevant info on these under development missiles? Who is making them? Who fired it, and from what/where?

Let's just say for the sake of argument that someone fired this new, "under development" missile at a burning fertilizer plant...what exactly would be the point? It's needlessly complicated and there's nothing to be achieved (from what I can see) from shooting a piece of emerging technology at an already burning fertilizer plant.

IMO, this is right up there with "the planes were holograms"-- a wild goose chase meant to distract.

Really a swarm.

They are unabashed. But they are a swarm.

The Daily Paul needs to be aware that maggots like this are waiting in the wings.

Go ahead and down vote....you pricks.

Your sorry ass assault makes the whole picture even more hilarious.

well, there is quite a chaotic flux of energies right now, it's just a matter of time until you want to get sucked back into the maelstrom and hope it works out and your fate is sealed.


sup Armyfree Jr.

feeling a little lonely tonight, are you? You keep wanting to meet with people here face to face...just to let you know I'm not really into *that* sort of thing, but I, along with many others to be sure, am flattered by your offer.

Either that, or you're promoting violence, which gives me cause to wonder...what exactly is *your* agenda? You seem awfully keen on accusing others of being government trolls...yeah, those three fingers pointing back at you right now tells me you're not on the up and up.

Oh, and the fact that 90% of your posts consist of little more than assumptions, insults, threats, and blind speculation.

Yes, yes, I know, I work for the government etc. In fact, I'm actually *the* Obomba!

Oh so you are trailing at least 90% of my posts??

You are reading 90 to 100% of my posts? Why is it so important for you to trail everything I say?

Why are you so preoccupied with what I am saying...and how can you quantify (scientifically) that most of my posts are "assumptions, insults, and threats."

That was a good one. Gotta good laugh from it.

Yeah...dude...meet me face to face.

No email insults to hide behind. Just normal face to face discourse and dialogue.

I dare you.

"insults to hide behind?"

You mean like

"Will(sic) see you all in hell." (Haha. This is fun.)

"Go ahead and down vote....you pricks."

"Yeah...go ahead you mother f-u-c-k-e-r-s....go ahead and downvote."

And that's just from your last few posts!

Oh, and let's not forget the countless times you've accused people of being government agents.

You "dare" me? What are you, a fourth grader?

Why are you so obsessed with 90% of my posts?

Have you a fixation??

But more importantly....why won't you talk to me face to face?

Easy to hide behind your digital barricade?

I am available to talk to you in person....eye to eye...man to man.

Why can't you reciprocate?

Are you a coward? Or are you not?
