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.

And yet when other people say

And yet when other people say it is a hoax (now proven true) you call them crazy. If you do not think your language is hyperbolic then you are mistaken, either because you do not understand the definition of hyperbole or you are being intellectually dishonest.

HUH? Please cite your accusations.

You need to be specific. Where have I called them "crazy"?

Seriously, if you are in error here do you realize that you are subjecting yourself to libel.

On the OTHER HAND...I seriously appreciate your attempts to stick up for the truth here...and even the fact that you stuck up for me when you saw that godsfavson was playing FOUL.

I am just mystified why then you would turn around and attack me after defending me. ???

I really don't understand why

I really don't understand why so many here at the DP have this problem. I responded DIRECTLY to the comment where you called people crazy. That is the comment you are replying to. I am not going to quote you when I am making a direct reply to your comment. Simply scroll up and read it. I am not accusing you of anything. It is a documented fact that anyone reading this thread already saw you say.

And I am most certainly not attacking you. I am defending myself against your attack, if anything. What an absurd thing for you to say after calling me and plenty of other level-headed folks crazy.

The 2nd video down looks fake

Watch the wooden pole's top half bend back and forth while the bottom half remains stationary. Looks like a bad green screen/blue screen effect.

I was a skeptic before but

I was a skeptic before but now I offer you my humble apology. This video convinced me that the US govt. is involved in a treacherous conspiracy to kill, maim, and disenfranchise its population.

The Doppler effect is UNMISTAKEABLE. Those who deny it, must come up with PROOF that this video is doctored or go back under their bridges and rocks.

The rest of us have to march over to Texas and make a stand! We will not tolerate this attack upon our farmers!

Your gullibility extends

Your gullibility extends beyond just conspiracy theories I see :-)

'Friends...' Hilarious!

In all liberty matters I'm with you. On conspiracies you seem to run with a bad crowd.

Wow. You are a truly pathetic

Wow. You are a truly pathetic human being. I haven't said this about many people I meet online...and I don't even really agree with the OP. But I genuinely feel pity for you and how sad your life must be.

Who Are You Addressing?

One problem I have with DP is I can't ever tell who the comments are aimed at.



You have some growing up to do.

How About Asshole Instead of Friends Godsbetterthananyone?

Sharkhearted mistook you for someone worth knowing.


sharkhearted's picture

Sorry, I took your apology to be legitimate.

In a sense I am gullible...in that I trust people and try to connect with them and give them the benefit of the doubt.

From your snide remarks here it is plainly obvious that you have been given one too many of those "benefits".

Have a good one...and please do not ever contact me again.

I'm sorry, you took my

I'm sorry, you took my assertion of a conspiracy against farmers to deprive them of fertilizer seriously.

It was (very thinly veiled) sarcasm. I was being genuine. Genuinely sarcastic =D

sharkhearted's picture

F-U-C-K you!

You probably make light of as well of the TENS OF THOUSANDS of farmers in YOUR country who have committed suicide thanks to Monsanto's totalitarian stranglehold on the cotton industry there in India...where they control the seed supply and bankrupt the farmers.

As quickly as I friended your sorry ass, I can unfriend you.

Again, you've or two articles

Again, you've read one or two articles and made their conclusions your own.

Come here sometime, I'll give you a tour what agriculture is like. Monsanto is happily being made the scapegoat for the failure of govt. to provide adequate irrigation in more than 60 years of independence.

By the way, our cotton production has increased manifold. You do not hear about that do you? The media loves a horror story, never mind the fact that it has happened every time the monsoons have failed two years in succession.

You should remember your distrust of the media even when they write articles that reinforce your beliefs.

Why bother debating the issue

Why bother debating the issue now? No one cares what you have to say, or values your opinion. You are the lowest of the low in my eyes, after what you just did. I would have been interested in your thoughts if your first post had been more like this one, but it wasn't. You fucked up and showed your true colors as a genuine asshole.

Listen nutjob, I'm not here

Listen nutjob, I'm not here to gain the approval of kooks like you. Got that in your head? Good.

Now he asserted I did not care about this issue when in contrast I do and have found the govt is more to blame than anyone else and was explaining that to him.

My first post was sarcasm that he did not get. Just because I don't buy into every crazy conspiracy doesn't mean I hate him or you. Understood? Now funk off to your cave.


It is so phuqueing sad that you cannot see the real nutjob.

Enjoy the teat.

My comments had nothing to do

My comments had nothing to do with whether you disagreed with the conspiracy or not. Your tactics were pathetic and you are an extremely low form of life.

Using sarcasm is an evil

Using sarcasm is an evil tactic? Are you a 5 year old girl? Boo frikkin hoo :-S he used sarcasm. Your over the top reaction is really weird.

Even in the next reply I said 'I am with you in all matters of liberty' or something to that effect. Don't you think you're overreacting to me he has been swearing at people, calling them trolls, disinfo agents etc for questioning this ridiculous theory (among others)? Come on, spare me the fake outrage.

I just read your comment above and so sorry for calling you kook etc. Its just that crazy conspiracy talk devolves the conversation on the DailyPaul and I will do whatever it takes to get such talk shouted down. Sorry if that offends you or your beliefs.

Oh yes. Obviously. Can't you

Oh yes. Obviously. Can't you tell that sarcasm is what I'm upset about?

Please explain how you hear a doppler effect here.

Put your earphones on, watch the second video in cue.

It is distinct and clear (if it is not faked via video manipulation).

If you can not hear the millisecond doppler effect of something approaching from the bottom left, to the right, then you need to get your hearing checked.

why use my ears, humans are unreliable

Here's an FFT spectrogram showing the frequency domain of the sound at 1x speed and 1/4x speed with pitch-preservation right before the explosion. It is capped at the 6khz region to highlight the sound you're referring to. It pitches down. IF this were a Doppler effect, that would be consistent with a source leaving the stationary audio receiver, same as the noise a train or car horn makes as it leaves you, not as it approaches. Are you saying we're hearing the missile leave, then provide an explosion?

But much, much more simply, IF it were an audible Doppler effect, why would it not be heard in the first video in the OP? They appear to be in or near the same general destination, this parking lot. The effect range is not smaller than any Nyquist frequency to be detected in one device but not the other, given device sampling rates nowadays. So this would strongly imply it is mic-local wind noise, or an attenuation algorithm accounting for a sudden spike; not a Doppler effect since it's a stationary emission source.

Whistling Jupiters!

Well done.

Good call =)

So what software did you use? Doesn't look like cubase or protools? Did you use some DSP software like MATLAB? Either way really good job. I'm suitably impressed =D

I hope this finally sets this to rest. I can't believe how often it has been bumped from the graveyard of threads.
