I have no clue exactly how common these blasts are but from the article you linked...


Chemical plant blasts are relatively common in China.


They appear to think that it's relatively common.

Whether there is something going on behind the scenes or not, I've no clue. I'm certainly hearing about it more often, but that's not a great indicator either.

Either way, I hope it ends with this one. There has already been too much life lost regardless of cause.

Once can be construed as an accident.
Twice could be construed as coincidence.
Thrice could be construed as a pattern of coordinated attacks.
Four times could be construed as unfathomable odds that it is not an attack on primary infrastructure.

Just my opinion of course.

Chemical plant explosions may be common in China. But, if I'm not mistaken, not all the explosions took place in chemical plants.

Edit:

After further reading I stand corrected. They have all been chemical plants. So for now we have to rely on Chinese authorities for information on these explosions. Don't expect to get any honesty.

You could very well be right as I have not looked them all up. The article seems to suggest that without saying it outright by simply stating how common it is.

I hope beyond hope that it isn't terroristic in nature and am not sure the Chinese government would let on if it were.

Four (4) explosions in space of months in some run down chemical factories...is that really common thing in China?

Then somebody there is not doing their safety checks and needs to go to jail for negligence, because lives are being affected as a result.

But of course, it just might be the Chinese US spies doing their thing..Just saying..

Rampant lack of safety standards will do that. Then all those Chinese companies going down the tubes in their stock markets probably leads companies to cut back even more to further reduce safety.

On this I have to agree.

There is something to be said for basic OSHA type standards, as well as commonly accepted chemical safety standards.

Some MSDS training could really benefit the Chinese. I know it would cost some money, but it costs more money to lose all of you product and then have to pay for the clean up.

An average of 1 explosion per week for the past month does not seem normal.

Compared to what?

What is so ironic about this is simply that the Chinese have always been experts with explosives simply through their fireworks and gunpowder experience. So how on earth can they be so lax over inflammables.

One hopes they are better with their munitions they proudly - and with great gusto - displayed to us all just recently.

They certainly have been common of late!

Exactly what?

I asked you what an average of 1 explosion a week seems abnormal as compared to what and you say "exactly?"

What does that mean?

Yep, totally regular and normal. Everything is FINE!

Nope! I would bet you don't either, but everything is totally normal, regardless! Isn't that how you feel anyway? If not, then I missed it.
