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.

the slow motion video pretty much settles it for me


I don't know

I think you need a high frame rate camera for conclusive evidence during an explosion. That's why the myth-busters always use those awesome slow-mo cams when they blow something up.


What's sad is, even if every major news outlet reported a missile did destroy the plant, nothing would come from it. Who would do anything about it? You? Me? Almost every one of us is stuck in the 'defend my family' mode and rightfully so. But it makes you wonder just what exactly will it take for everyone to say that crosses the line and get out of our defensive shell and actually take it to them. What would it really take to go from 'come and take it' to 'your ass is mine' mentality. If most of you are honest with yourselves you're already in the 'your ass is mine' mode but feel no one else would stand with you in large enough numbers to make a difference. They've already setup the legal structure (in their minds) for imprisoning anyone who stands up to them in defense of liberty. They're bombing us, imprisoning us, using drones, locking us in our homes, setting up a Nazi Germany police state, and no one is doing a damn thing of significance to stop it. We've been educating and spreading the message for years. In the meantime they're literally killing us and destroying families. At some point we have to actually DO something.

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

Yet trolls (ghouls) continue to downvote this post.

Are they REALLY that desperate?

Seems they are....

Its almost hilarious. They are SO un-advanced.

:29 second mark

The film quality is terrible, but pause at :29 seconds before the explosion. If you sequence it right, you can hear a whistle right before the explosion... if you sequence the explosion right, you can see a first blast happened to the left side, almost off camera, resulting in a huge blast.

Go back and forth, you will hear the noise and see first explosion.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Fertilizer Propellant

Fertilizer can be highly combustible. It is used as rocket propellant in some cases.


Also, video of an explosion without cameras able to operate in the range 300 FPS aren't very good for research. In other words, data from a low frame rate camera would have to be considered inconclusive evidence, almost regardless of what it shows. It's really a case of, don't believe your lying eyes. LOL!!

Hope this helps out. And I up-voted you. Hell, I love the opportunity for research. Thanks a bunch for the post.

Combustible is different from explosive.

Explosion requires extremely rapid reaction or containment.

How would trained firefighters expecting a long burn be caught off guard.

Same way firefighters were trapped in a demolition collapse?

Free includes debt-free!

No, they are not different.

No, they are not different. An explosion occurs when a combustible ignites and can't vent pressure. It could be resistance in free air because the fuel ignites so fast, or it could be because it's contained mechanically. I had some small black powder fireworks that went pop on their own, but when put in some kind of container like a marker or when wrapped in duct tape, they became loud booms. Take the powder out and it just burns slowly (compared to the explosion). Containment raises the pressure, which raises the heat, which increases the rate of reaction. It's all resistance to expansion.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Some combustibles become explosive when detonated.

That's why black powder is handy. You can detonate on demand.

How was the fertilizer detonated?

Free includes debt-free!

You're right

You need a combustible capable of a rapid reaction.....like fertilizer.

But firefighters would have been on guard.

They have tons of fertilizer at the Big Acre store, even at Walmart or Home Depot.

Ammonium nitrate decomposes into the gases nitrous oxide and water vapor when heated (non-explosive reaction); however, ammonium nitrate can be induced to decompose explosively by detonation.

Free includes debt-free!

Your Right Again..

Gotta have a detonation source of some kind. I'm not sure what that source is in this case. I would assume a natural source or possibly human error. Who knows? I'm sure an investigation will give us some details in the near future.

I don't know about the fire-fighters.

My son is buddies with a group of these guys.

They'll be talking about this. One stays alive in that business by not repeating stupid.

Free includes debt-free!

"I'm sure an investigation will give us some details in the

near future."
Really? Based on what? Who will investigate and tell us the findings?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

The Insurance company, normally has an interest.

In the event of a drone attack, the military has jurisdiction under NDAA.

Congress has had one purpose for 220 years; borrow money on the Faith and Credit of the United States and waste it with cronies as fast as possible on an endless sting of public works failures.

No one does stupid like government. One might argue that government is the definition of stupid, or maybe stupid incarnate.

Not stupid like Forest Gump, stupid like a Zombie. Their one purpose is to make you a Zombie, too.

The Zombie Horde invaded Boston. They want to turn the whole world's population in tax parasites.

Hey, it's living.

Free includes debt-free!



This is the Monsanto Protection Act being enforced literally

Let's keep in mind this fertilizer company was trying to sue Monsanto. I thought this was nonsense but,after the video, and more specifically that noise right before the explosion it certainly seems plausible.

Nice, predictable swarm of trolls to down vote.

Quit being an asshole.

I read the whole post.

Take a step back and think about this before you call one more person "unadvanced" or a "troll" or "a motherfucker..." Forget Monsanto, forget Oklahoma City, forget every conspiracy theory you know and think about this from the perspective of someone who is trying to view this completely objectively.

We have a situation in which a fertilizer plant that was storing hundreds of tons of highly explosive material exploded. The cause people are saying the cause is....

a missile.

Nobody, NOBODY, should be called a a sheep or shill or any other insult for rejecting this premise. The burden of proof is on the accusers, and this post did not convince me of anything whatsoever. All it said was "big hole in the ground" and blamed a missile, but hundreds of tons of ammonium nitrate exploding at GROUND LEVEL is going to move the ground like it is not even freaking there.

I am not intimidated by your name calling and taunts, but I did read them and think "man what a fucking asshole." All you are going to do with your attitude is push other people away. This is a documented phenomenon in medicine- when a doctor is super aggressive, arrogant, and insulting patients will often double down on whatever preconceived notions they had.

I want to emphasize that your attitude had nothing to do with my conclusion (which I based on my understanding of chemistry, physics, common sense, and Occam's razor), but still man get a freaking grip.

**edit** And yeah and the whistle thing. You have no idea what violent reactions were occurring immediately before the huge explosion. Some reactions MAKE WHISTLING SOUNDS. Why do you think we freaking have whistling fireworks?

F-U-C-K you, you government or corporate paid troll

You know you are.

You know you have to spread your psyops or you will get fired.

You have no understanding of the Doppler Effect and if this video is authentic and it has not been manipulated, then yeah, something hit the West Fertilizer Plant.

And (to quote you) I want you to know too, (even beyond your swarm of down voting trolls) that YOUR attitude had nothing to do with my conclusion (which I based my understanding of chemistry, physics, common sense, and Occam's razor)...but still man get a freaking grip.

Actually when I read your comments I thought "man what a f-u-c-k-i-n-g asshole so touché.

From one asshole to another.

Get off your soapbox

Your baseless assumptions, coupled with an elitist attitude are EXACTLY why so many people are fed up with the conspiracy crowd, which is too bad, because some are critical thinkers who are genuinely searching for truth...much unlike yourself it would seem.

Someone disagrees with you, or even worse-- proves whatever bullshit theory of the week to be wrong...they must work for the government and/or corporations!!!!11one How is that practicing critical thought? Answer: it isn't.

You pretend that you're searching for the truth and all that jazz, but the reality is that you just want to shove your worldview down everyone else's throat while demonizing those who disagree...just like the MSM

"Question everything" means to QUESTION EVERYTHING, not just run with the first "alternative" theory you come across, no matter how ridiculous it may be...just like MSM viewers.

What "baseless assumptions"? Please cite!

So tell me about your government paycheck? How much do you make every month.

C'mon! Level with us taxpayers who pay your salary.

How much do you make???

I just did cite one, and you're proving my point now

Someone disagrees with you, so you claim that they must work for the government and/or corporations 'based' solely on that.

Thanks for proving my point with that post, dimwit.

Yah. You never answered the question.

How much is your government salary??

Look, dude....I wil survive ad hominems from you like "dimwit"....far beyond you think I can.

It is laughable.

So...tell me...man to man what is your salary??

What are you getting paid??

Seriously, dude....WHAT ARE YOU GETTING PAID??

The original question: what is your government salary??

See? That's all you have

I called you out for being an assuming, elitist asshole whose only retort is to accuse others of working for the government, and you keep proving it with these responses.

Like I said, no critical thought whatsoever. You say I work for the government based on NOTHING but the very fact that I called you out on the fact that you use that as your go-to smear for ANYONE and EVERYONE who disagrees with you. You don't give a shit about evidence, only pushing your delusional worldview on others. Much like the MSM, you're only interested in pushing your own agenda while demonizing those who point it out. Think on that one for just a second.

Perhaps your heart is in the right place, but your head appears to be firmly planted up your ass. But hey, since I'm calling you out on this it must mean I work for the Illuminati or something.

edit: Seriously sharkhearted, what I'm saying is that you're being your own worst enemy with the way you choose to respond with those who disagree with you. If you can't/won't/don't understand that, then the 'dimwit' label stands.

I am not saying it was not...

I am not saying it was not a missile strike but... It is possible that the down wind heated air was filled with overly rich unburned hydrocarbons. And at a certain point it reached a explosive mixture point and temperature point to self ignite. Any firefighters out there can chime in and better describe a flashover. Here is what Wikipedia says http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flashover


This has zero

This has zero credibility..its a fertilizer plant! You know people make explosive out of fertilizer right? Dyhydrous amonia is used at many types of plants from coal burning power plants to nuke plants to oxychem plants to paper mills(trust me I have worked at all of the above and they always lecture you about the dangers during hire in and often make you watch videos). Did you know a couple years ago in AL a sugar plant blew up? ANY particulates in the air cause an explosion hazard....a fertilizer plant more than most...even sawdust in the air is an explosion hazard. Why would someone shoot a missle at a fertilizer plant? Seriously, you are idiots if you think this was anything other than an industrial accident(ok, not idiots but the liklihood of such an event are vanishly small...far smaller than the probability of an accident)

Dust will explode if the

Dust will explode if the conditions are right! Okay a fertilizer plant has a 5 alarm fire going followed by an explosion. The only thing unexpected here is that several explosions didn't follow!
