    The explosion was in the Chinese city of Tianjin, which is the Chinese port city on the China Sea, at its closest point to their capital city, Beijing. Beijing itself is about 100 miles (150 km) inland from the China Sea. Supposedly a shipment of explosives blew up, causing yet more explosions.

    Another video, which looks a bit closer to the explosion.



    State media says 2 firefighters missing and 300 injured. By the looks of that blast I'd say that number is considerably higher.

    I suspect the Mishpucka will be burning the midnight oil tonight.



    Kali Yuga (Devanāgarī: कलियुग [kəli juɡə], lit. "age of [the demon] Kali", or "age of vice") is the last of the four stages the world goes through as part of the cycle of yugas described in the Sanskrit scriptures, within the present Mahayuga. The other ages are called Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, and Dvapara Yuga.

    Kali Yuga is associated with the apocalyptic demon Kali

    Angry Re: Massive explosion in the city of Tianjin, China

    Sorry, but I don't believe for one second that this was an "accident". The MSM initially reported an explosion the equivalent of 4 tons of TNT; try at least 10 x that, felt 7km away. It's more like a mini-nuclear bomb going off. At least 44 people dead and over 300 injured, cars on the docks incinerated.

    "Punishment" from the Cabal for lowering the value of the Yuan 3-days in a row?? (and effectively screwing the US$ even further??) Hmmmmm...

    Bloody Hell!

    From the Daily Mail:

    Quote 'It's what we were told a nuclear bomb would look like': Utter devastation after explosions so big they registered as earthquakes rip through Chinese warehouse killing 44 including 11 firefighters.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...nese-city.html

    Here is a comment from the comments section beneath the story:

    Quote I'm here in Beijing and tried to email you about this story DM. Our cellphones here are receiving warnings that between 4:50-5:35am local time based on wind currents that toxic fumes from the explosions will reach Beijing. We are being urged to keep doors and windows closed and avoid going outside. The worst part is that these are then followed by the advice that if you must go out wear a surgical mask. Unless I've completely missed my lessons in chemistry, a surgical mask will be entirely ineffective against a toxic cloud from a chemical/gas explosion. It is hard to know who to trust or what to do. My heart and prayers are with the victims and their families, based on photos I've seen the death toll will rise much higher.


    Will have to keep eyes on this event.




    Regards.

    For whatever reasons. The sudden appearance of a huge bright ball in no time is very suspect. Though I know nothing about the mechanism of types of explosions, I would think a conventional chemical explosion grows from a small to a big thing. Albeit in a very short time, it is still visible to our eyes. The second explosion in the video is a sudden flash of a giant ball, like lightning, and quite similar to the suspected neutron bomb explosion in Yemen, or the one in Syria two or three years ago. I suspect this was an attack.

    take a look at the latest drone footage:

    I'm thinking what you're thinking ( all viewers of this thread and this last drone video footage). what happens to anyone who messes with the frn$ ?

    i'm referring to "who done it".

    now, on to what type of device:

    I would explore it as a proper weighted consideration, I would not run around wearing it as a truth, ie, defacto prejudgement.

    But it is a required part of any given analysis these days.

    conventional explosions, conventional materials are not 'fast enough' to cause depressions in the ground. Only nukes and well constructed thermobarics have a fast enough wave and thus high enough proximity and volume of expanding pressure, to punch a depression into the ground. conventional explosives explode slow enough that the wave expands and disperses above the explosion point and thus no ground depression. The only way they can crater, is if they are in the ground when they go off. Conventional explosives, underground, or shot into ground, they disperse soil, etc. Thermobarics and nukes do not scatter dirt, etc. depending on ground proximity when ignited..they forcefully depress the ground. In the limited views seen so far, I see no depression.

    Question Re: Massive explosion in the city of Tianjin, China

    hmm ...

    A very interesting but frightening analysis ...
    And if one is to believe such, either the so called container device went off way/way prematurely ...
    Or it's timing mechanism was impeccable precise.

    This is the sort of thing a developing country can make as a mistake. Storage of 'ignitable' materials in areas ----where they should not be.

    First world countries have made all those mistakes already, long ago. Laws and procedures are in place, due to these prior mistakes... to ensure that if problems occur, the losses and dangers are minimized.

    These kinds of mistakes, in the past, with over 1,600 people killed instantly.

    These are the specs on the Halifax explosion, which is linked above.



    Note that a 7 million pound boat hull was tossed 1000 feet up into the air.
