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.

Oh no!

I should've known! It's almost as insidious as the terrible "appeal to rational thought" fallacy!

My cock. That's what.

Actually...my intuition.

You are WAY WAYYYY too quick to pin this event as an accident when you should really learn the back-story.

Not only on nearly the 20th anniversary to the day of the Waco Massacre...and close to the 17th anniversary of the OKC false flag bombing and murder of innocent federal employees...there is a HUGE back story relating the West Fertilizer Company in a feud with fascist agribusiness monster Monsanto.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

"You are WAY WAYYYY too quick to pin this event as an accident"

And you're WAY WAYYYY to quick to pin every event as being part of a massive conspiracy.

Seriously, it's almost as if you post this nonsense to make consp..."DIY-CSIers" look bad on purpose. You're only making yourself look bad...and quite foolish/hostile.

A signature used to be here!

Is it a conspiracy theory?

Quick! Sharkhearted is here to blindly support it!

Quick! Eric Hoffer is here to blindly not support it.

Seriously dude...DO YOU THINK by your uovotes by fellow trolls, that your point here is valid.

Really? You think that majority rules??

Quick. Eric Hoffer is here to blindly support the anti theory.

You know...that government is good and can be trusted and that everything is hunky dory.

Hmmm

Actually, usually in threads where I destroy all the points you make, I have downvotes. They're usually 9/11 threads, so I don't know why you'd think the number of upvotes or downvotes would matter to me.

Really? You think that majority rules??

So you ask the question, repeat it, then ask it again, and somehow that makes it my assumption? Good try there crazy pants.

Quick. Eric Hoffer is here to blindly support the anti theory.

Yes, because when I see grass growing outside, I don't instantly assume the government is sending radiation down from the sky to make the grass grow as part of some conspiracy either, I obviously blindly support everything the government tells me. Get a clue mate.

You know...that government is good and can be trusted and that everything is hunky dory.

I've only refuted you saying this 6 times now. Shall we go for 7? Maybe make it to double digits? How many times can you build this straw man before he leaves you and goes off to get a job somewhere on the docks?

Fools don't last too long in the real world.

That's obviously just not true. How old are you now?

Meet me face to face to discuss

Otherwise you are just another internet coward....hiding behind his keyboard.

Will you break free from that conditioning and talk to me in person? My email is sharkhearted at gmail and I can send you my number if you are interested and (brave) enough to actually TALK TO ME.

Someone...

Someone needs some friends.

Text is honestly the best way to express ideas and share relevant facts. In person exchanges are generally ruled by emotion and whoever is louder or snarkier.

EDIT: Actually, let me point out as well that in person is the perfect time to force your ideas through the threat of the physical. "Come over here and say that to my face." I don't know why, but it just sounds like a prelude to violence. It's nice that the internet lets rational discussions occur in a place where the losers (and I don't mean loser as a person, I mean as the loser of the argument) can't say, "I'll beat your face in" as a method of winning the argument.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???

You would rather a couple of nitwits tear themselves to bits over some cowardly email or blog posts...as opposed to some face to face discussion???

HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?

UNTIL YOU ARE WILLING TO SPEAK WITH ME PERSONALLY...you are disqualified.

Of course your troll internet COWARDS will be willing to downvote me for these comments and really at this point... it is a BADGE OF HONOR.

No. Did someone sell you tickets to a comedy show and call it the Internet?

I guess I fail to see how rational discussion, citing sources and relevant data, and not yelling is cowardly. Perhaps you'd prefer we beat our chests, cross swords, and then whoever lives is the one God supported and is obviously in the right?

HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?

No. Have you lost your caps lock key?

UNTIL YOU ARE WILLING TO SPEAK WITH ME PERSONALLY...you are disqualified.

Yes, because I don't want to meet up and have tea with someone who is obviously unbalanced, I'm disqualified. You need to chill man. Smoke some grass, take some deep breaths... something.

Of course your troll internet COWARDS will be willing to downvote me for these comments and really at this point... it is a BADGE OF HONOR.

Yes, because other people up voting or down voting on there internet should fill you with pride and purpose.

So Eric, what do you do for a living?

I do commercial real estate. And I am also a landscaper and a contract musician.

But I have never taken a dime from the government, a multinational corporation, or lobbying group, to help advance their cause...or disinform the public through blogs etc.

How about you? What do you do for a living? And do you now or have you ever been paid by an organization (be it government or "private") to disrupt blogs with misinformation?

Anybody that is afraid to come out from behind his computer keyboard and talk face to face...is a suspect.

Come clean. If you are not...then why won't you talk with me face to face. Afraid to?

What have you to hide?

If you have nothing...then you should be able (and man enough) to meet me face to face....or at least have a phone call conversation of the same.

I believe I gave you my number. Call me. Let's discuss. I don't bite.

Uhh...

But I have never taken a dime from the government, a multinational corporation, or lobbying group, to help advance their cause...or disinform the public through blogs etc.

I got an income tax refund once. Does that count? And I do have multinational corporations as customers. I think one time I did some repair work for the EPA. Oh, I DO do lots of work for local firefighters and hazmat teams. As for advancing their cause... well no, unless their cause is to not die from poisonous gas fumes.

How about you? What do you do for a living? And do you now or have you ever been paid by an organization (be it government or "private") to disrupt blogs with misinformation?

I'm pretty certain I've been open about this. I own a small business working with gas detection equipment. I'm in the Daily Paul business directory, if you look. My company is called Ideal Calibrations. You seem to have this fantasy where everything you don't agree with or which you don't understand and proves you wrong is obviously just fake facts written by someone who is being paid to steer you wrong. The problem is, you're 100% willing to absorb any fantasy thrown at you by the internet as long as it has the Government as evil actor and shows some sort of dark powers at play. Whether or not these theories go against logic, science, or possibility don't come into play for you, and anyone citing these rules or facts is obviously "the enemy." It makes any kind of discussion with you completely impossible. You fail to address the issues raised (which you either don't understand or don't like) and go directly to possible motives which just MUST be nefarious. It straight answer: No, of course I haven't been paid to read posts and write comments on the DailyPaul.

Anybody that is afraid to come out from behind his computer keyboard and talk face to face...is a suspect.

Or maybe having coffee with someone who is obviously unable to control their emotional impulses, have a logical debate, and who continually seeks out emotional confrontation just isn't their cup of tea?

Come clean. If you are not...then why won't you talk with me face to face. Afraid to?

Honestly? Yeah kind of. You come across as a nut who could have violent tendencies. You're probably the only person on DailyPaul who I've ever said that about. Jefferson and I used to go back and forth every day ripping each other apart, but at the end of the day I never thought I couldn't sit down with him and have a beer. You're another story to me.

If you have nothing...then you should be able (and man enough) to meet me face to face....or at least have a phone call conversation of the same.

Yeah, no need to hear your frustrated screams in person or through the phone. Vent to your psychologist.

I believe I gave you my number. Call me. Let's discuss. I don't bite.

Sorry, I'm.... very busy. We'll get together soon though!

Start with Joη's frequency analysis.

If is a moving object, it is moving away from the site.
http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/3057026
Frequency is going up not down. That's how I interpret the analysis.

That contradicts the claim.

However, a similar fire in 1947 never detonated. However the hull of the ship got hot enough to boil water lapping it's sides.

Something detonated the fertilizer and that is what investigators will be looking for.

Free includes debt-free!

While

the origin of this fire has not been determined yet (as far as I know) it seems hard to believe that a missile would be fired at this plant in broad daylight while peoples' attention was focused on it. (although nothing would surprise me at this point)

There is a definite "whoosh" sound that does sound like a "missile" approaching, but a similar sound is made when fumes catch fire. Ever let the gas run a little too long in your grill or fireplace before you light it?

My stepdad who is a chemist and had worked in various types of plants throughout his career, thinks that it was most likely the fumes from another anhydrous ammonia tank on the premises.

Also ammonium nitrate was supposedly used in combination with TNT in older artillery shells. That's probably why it looked like a b0mb going off.

I could be wrong though. Make of it what you will.

Don't

call me stuff I have to go look up....;)

There were a couple of dead links in your comment, and I'm not smart enough to get the gist of what you're implying. Are you agreeing with my assessment?
wait....
bubkis · bupkes · nada · nothing · squat · zilch · zip

ok..I figured out that part..lol

So it could also just be wind on the mic. I should have included that.

Makes more sense.

Joη's picture

dead links? *tries all*

nope...they're there. MP3's took a little to load.

Anyway, yes, I was just saying the whoosh doesn't imply a missile. "Fumes catching" too is possible, I didn't think of that. I'm not near things combusting often to know!

I click on the "1x speed" and the other link I get a

message. Using Chrome. (probably used "dead link" in the wrong context)

"I'm not near things combusting often to know!"

That's probably NOT a bad strategy..lol

I knew my years of playing with fire as a kid would pay off someday...;)

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

come on....

why would anyone want to destroy a fertilizer plant?

The Obvious Question

Is why start a fire, let it engulf the entire building and THEN fire a missile into it. The fire already destroyed the building why waste a missile.
Fertilizer plants hold thousands of gallons of explosive material.

Fire + Thousands of Explosive Chemicals = Boom

NWO is planning a famine to

NWO is planning a famine to increase dependence on govt. Without fertilizers there will be no food...monsanto will offer to take over food production and a fearful congress will acquiesce.

Then all the food you will eat will be GMO mutants produced by the corporate horror Monsanto...

Before long, the mutants will get restless...start moving around in your fridge...pretty soon they'll be eating you...

Attack of the GMO Tomatoes!!!

You people are crazy to down vote this

Do you care about the truth? Or do you care about getting your next government paycheck to disinform?

You can hear the Doppler Effect clearly ...CLEARLY...in the video.

Unless the video has been altered (possibility) there is a clear doppler effect "incoming" sound.

Videographic evidence (if not altered)...does NOT LIE.

Even though I totally

Even though I totally disagree with the dude below and his tactics, your evidence is extremely underwhelming, and I would not be using such hyperbolic language. Nothing you've given is really anywhere close to as clear as you want to make it sound. So far the most convincing thing I've seen in the thread is the visual someone posted of the audio. While I'm certainly not qualified to state with certainty either way, it's pretty clear that you have provided only circumstantial and subjective evidence.

sharkhearted's picture

Excuse me. "Hyperbolic language"?

You may recall in that post that I basically left the gate open by saying the video may have been altered.

So...in other words....I left the option open that this whole video might be a fake and a false lead.

How...in the effing world...is that hyperbole???

In what universe, does such concessions, (which would normally be regarded as prudence and caution in the scientific community)...does this pass for hyperbole??

Go back and read my post!! And next time please do not bear false witness against me.

I never said what you accused me of saying.

I left the possibility that this video might be a hoax.
