Mods please move if posted in wrong forum.

Came across this video from a gathering at mass during the explosion.

Im no expert by all means, but does the delay in the lights going out and the actual blast suggest an EMP from a bomb? You hear the bulbs pop which doesnt suggest it was an outage from the powerlines being destroyed?

Anyway Thought I'd share

Apparently there were smaller blasts before the big one hit...

If there was an EMP there would be no footage.

Smaller electronics like cellphones and cameras tend to survive unless plugged in.

Something did cause the initial explosion but unless someone was filming at the exact moment I doubt we will ever know

If you search around you will find footage taken from pretty close, don't think the person filming it made it though

No, there's another one from even closer

So the small explosions are bullets. The large explosion....IDK but the port is controlled by hezbollah so it was probably a massive bomb they built for a terror attack. Glad it went off in Lebanon instead of say New York.

The youtube vid above had 30 mins of various footage including on from what looks like on top of a buidling next to it.

Some clips were touching...a father seeking shelter in his apt with his son for example.

The reports are that is was a warehouse storing ammonium nitrate. Photos show a crater where the structure used to be and the ruptured grain silo next to it.

Is that the video shot from a adjacent rooftop? The guy could see inside the building through the windows, no way he made it.

Yeah, the video shot from opposite side is the closest recovered so far, and unfortunately, I highly doubt the guy filming made it.

Supposing what you say is correct, what about the cell phone towers and routers that allowed the footage to be uploaded?

Right, well an EMP or Electro Magnetic Pulse is actually pretty much the same thing as moving a magnet along a conductive metal strip, it pull's electrons along with it and this causes circuits to burn out pretty much the same as a surge in the electricity grid does.

An EMP is a magnetic ripple or shock wave that comes from it's source (much like moving that magnet along the strip but without the magnet and moving outward very fast in all direction's from it's source) much like a ripple on the surface of a pond, any electronics close enough to it's centre will burn out as the electron's in there conductors are PULLED along the circuit paths - more than the circuit is designed to use or able to tolerate, this is weakened over distance as the energy of the wave is dissipated.

Now that is an overly simplified explanation but my point is this.

An EMP does not pop bulb's, it will cause there filament to burn out but that is all it will do (if a large enough surge occurs then maybe the filament will vaporize turning into gas inside the bulb but since the bulb is a vacuum or filled with a noble gas it will still not do anything other than burn out so exploding the glass of the bulb is still unlikely - then again never say never).

A PHYSICAL shock wave in the form of Sound - the boom and at closer distances to the epicentre of the blast the explosive force of the blast WILL break bulb's and windows and other such things as well as burst ear drum's.

This was not a nuclear blast, even a small briefcase tactical nuke would have caused more extensive damage, this was probably a terrorist device such as a truck bomb or even a well made pack pack bomb.


So An EMP does not cause KINETIC (Physically shoving something) Damage it does cause electronics to over charge however which can burn them out and is stronger the closer you get to the source of an EMP, even an exploding transformer can cause a mild EMP and lightning can also damage electronics, surges in the main's and overloading circuits causing them to burn out.

A Physical blast which is common to all types of bomb and other sources of explosions CAN cause physical damage through two method's, the shock wave of the blast itself and the faster sound wave both of which damage objects such as glass - bulbs and windows.

So no not a nuke.

A VERY well made back pack bomb to conceal 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate.

Well since it was the dock's an accidental explosion of that same material OR a ship bomb.

One way to prove the point either way, get a Geiger counter to ground zero, if it was a radioactive device there would be considerable residual activity and the counter would tick nicely above background level's.

So no not a nuke, two reason's really, using a nuke would be obscenely expensive for even a western power, it would set off all manner of detectors around the world designed to identify nuclear detonations such as those that pick up underground NK detonations etc and terrorists would not want to waste money in that way unless they had it for a prime target such as one of our capital city's, they would also want to use it as a bargaining chip and hide it away somewhere.

They aren't trying to blame anyone. Rarely see this stance in a hub for terrorism. Iran seems to have taken the same approach with their recent explosions.
