WTH?

If any situation needed National Guard back up / support...it's this.

i don't think we will find out but I'm sure the FBI will talk to Google as to the time stamps etc on the post to determine either way.

everything is logged, even in Google land.

Because if it's after, it seems to me he was just commenting like all of the other people, reflective of the magnitude only with a bit of politics or anti-industrial sentiment thrown in.

I dunno.


Creepy as hell.


It looks like it was posted after. Creepy indeed. My tin foil hat is on...

But seriously, I hope this was an accident.

Ok, the guy just posted an apology, he apparently posted it after the incident, according to his new post on that review.

Never fear, Rick Perry is here



We are monitoring developments and gathering information as details continue to emerge about this incident. We have also mobilized state resources to help local authorities. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of West, and the first responders on the scene.”

Well, they already have a ton of units on site. So many that earlier they were requesting that no more units respond because they were getting in the way and making it harder for the rescue vehicles to get in and out.

Now you mention it, you are right, it looks like fireball came from left to right in the video, very strange indeed!!!!

Just after 9 p.m., Vanek was talking to personnel near the scene, visibly upset with his head in his hands, bent over at the waist. One of the people speaking with Vanek said “he lost a lot of his buddies out there.”



“I said, ‘This thing is going to blow’ . . . and I told my mom and dad to get in the car,” Bohannan said. “I was standing next to my car with my fiancee, waiting for my parents to come out and (the plant) exploded. It knocked us into the car . . . Every house within about four blocks is blown apart.”

Thanks!

It doesn't sound like the statement of an Islamic fundamentalist terrorist but rather someone with extreme eco-views.

It appears to be something some extreme-left environmentalist would say regarding our methods of industrialization at the cost to our world. Like how some feel that chemical fertilizers damage the soil, plant, environment, waters, etc. How such plants are a risk to everyone due to the chemicals they manufacture and their explosive nature.

I personally doubt this explosion was terror-related and was likely an accident.
An accident that isn't usual nor unlikely.

I agree with you. I'm watching it on the news and they've shown some slo motion clips of the blast. It really looks like something behind the fire, on the far left of the screen frame, ignites the air.

I took notice of that as well. Looked like something came in at a diagonal angle from the left.

I hope I'm wrong & that it was the initial blast. We don't need anything crazy like that right now lol.

Well you have to remember though, a tank is what exploded. The tank may be offscreen to the left a little bit or something. It's not necessarily inside of the building, unless I missed something.

I created this GIF for ease of analysis of the explosion.

I am curious about the bright flash of light before the fire and the brimstone so to speak.. (this is just a figure of speech)
