This is in all probability an accidental event and gas is still the most likely explanation.
So you believe that the USA is the only country in the world capable of flying a drone over another nation without being spotted? Seriously?
This is what I mean by the beliefs of Americans when it comes to military capability. I don't know whether it's down to extreme patriotism or self
belief, or internal propaganda, or maybe it's simply a lack of awareness about the rest of the world? Either way, many Americans are far too cocky
when it comes to them being a supposed almighty leader in the world. America hasn't led the world in many respects at all. Educational standards,
living conditions, poverty, medical treatment, democratic process, finance... Americans seem to automatically assume that their nation is the leader
in all of these areas, but the US is often beaten by ten other nations in every respect. The US hasn't led in anything positive as far as I am aware
for more than 20 years.
This is not just conjecture, this is fact, based in data and science. Numerous countries beat the USA in various standards, and Americans just seem to
pretend that this isn't the case. The cheer leading apparently drowns out reality.
Many Americans believe that no other nation is capable of anything. They are very wrong. China and Russia didn't simply stop developing technology in
the 1990's. They have military programs just as the US does. The fact that spending is not open and stated on public record does not mean that either
(more secretive) government isn't spending billions on these projects too.
There are spies in every nation, that never ended. There is a high probability Russia and China were well aware of drones being developed by the USA
before the American public ever heard of them. They would have been developing the same, to be able to defend their own nations.
Having said all of that, I agree that the most plausible scenario on the face of it is a gas explosion. However much I might believe that it wasn't
that, there are only so many explanations a person can propose, and when it comes to probability it is reasonable that this would be the explanation.
But I still don't buy it. From my own experience and from the evidence and statements by witnesses it does not sound like a gas explosion.
That doesn't mean I think a foreign power did this, or that they used drones. I offer my posts in opposition to the idea that it's "impossible".
It's not impossible at all, far from it.
Also... interesting spin on this... If no other nation in the world is capable of flying anything over the US without the US forces knowing about it,
how do we explain away the thousands of reports of UFO's? Is the US military responsible for all of them? Are there really aliens flying those
mysterious machines? Or is it more plausible that other nations have developed the same technology and is flying recon missions just as the US does
over other nations?
I know what my money is on in the majority of those cases.
