Based on their representation in the engineering programs at our colleges that would be a decent guess.

Ammonium nitrate isn’t explosive by itself. it’s just an oxidizer, a fuel must be added in proper proportions.

I know. It’s just weird that we had West, TX. and now this one. I don’t do conspiracy theories, but it’s all getting to be too much for me.

I have seen AP excerpted here and then I see posts with no AP excerpts. Being fairly new here I thought I’d err on the side of caution so the mods don’t yell at me before I’ve had my morning coffee.

I think this makes three incidents between Texas and Louisianna.

Once is happenstance,

Twice is coincidence,

Three times? Enemy action.

"Ammonium nitrate isn’t explosive by itself. it’s just an oxidizer, a fuel must be added. in proper proportions"

There, fixed it.

Of course, if you mix oxidizer & fuel in stoichiometric proportions you will have a more efficient explosion, but I don't believe it is too critical.

I had a farmer buddy in the West who used to dig a 6 foot deep hole, dump in ammonium nitrate fertilizer then pour in diesel or kerosine. Add a dynamite detonator and "voila!" a 30 foot crater to catch rain run-off for the cattle.

His fuel proportion was a good bit on the high side of stoichiometric.

We have seen multiple explosions at chem plants.

We have seen wildfires, now being reported as arson.

We have had multiple bomb threats called in.

SEATAC is being crawled upon by police at this hour.

WTH is going on?

Officials from Illinois-headquartered CF Industries were on Thursday beginning an investigation into an explosion which killed one person and injured at least another 10 at its Donaldsonville, Louisiana fertiliser plant. The blast and subsequent fire occurred at about 22:30 hours on Wednesday (03:30 GMT Thursday) in one of four ammonia plants at the Donaldsonville complex, said Chuck Combs, regional marketing manager for CF Industries. He told CNI that the dead person was a contractor. "Six of the ten confirmed injured were contractors and four were CF staff," he said. Combs had no information on the extent of their injuries although several were described by local emergency services as in critical or serious conditions. Some were reported to be suffering from serious burns. The fire was brought under control in under half an hour but the affected ammonia unit - one of four at the complex - was shutdown immediately and could be out of action for some time, according to Combs. He said the blast occurred during routine maintenance although the plant was operating at the time. "We don't know yet what caused the explosion but an internal investigation has started." Combs said the four ammonia units have a combined capacity of about 2m tonne/year. The Donaldsonville complex also includes three urea plants and two producing UAN (urea, ammonia and nitrate). source

Do you remember when we had MASSIVE forest fires burning north, east, south, and west simultaneously? We did everything in our power to show that these fires were a muslim attack, a well known and well publicised tactic, amd LEO refused to follow up on any of it. Then we had the fast burning warehouses all over the place using an accelerant that burned so fast and so hot that it melted railroad tracks miles away. Coincidently, just such an accelerant, (hundeds of sheets,) was stolen from a military storage facility and never found. STILL fbi would not call it what it was.

Chemical plants have been blowing up for years now. Some reporter should put a list together of the explosions in the last 10 years, I bet that would wake a few people up.

WTH is going on?

Imagine 100,000 muslim jihadis here on H-1B, L-1, refugee and expired student visas working in power plants, fertilizer factories, refineries, chemical manufacturers, hospitals, utilities, dams, pharmaceutical formulators, web hub server farms, municipal water supply facilities, sewage treatment plants, meat packing and food processing plants, driving HazMat trucks...

Remember when the Vietcong took over Huế? They were able to round up every government official, march them all off into the jungle and kill every last one of them in one single night.

They knew exactly where they lived, who they visited, where they shopped and where they ate dinner, and when.

How you ask?

The cabbies had been providing the Vietcong daily reports on their every move for years in advance.

Soooo, where do most of the cabbies in your berg come from? In Washington DC, it's Somalia...

Just because we've forgotten the lessons of Huế and the lessons of the Sepoy Rebellion's "The Perfect Day" doesn't mean our enemies have.

Wiki seems mute on The Perfect Day. That information used to be readily available there. Now it's barely mentioned.

I don’t know but it can’t be terrorism. And it can’t be false flag operations. ‘Cause that would be crazy conspiracy talk, as if we have enemies who have sworn to destroy us from without and from within. Or so all the “smart” people would tell us rubes.

Well, it’s a good thing the federal government is examining all our communications, working to take our guns away, keeping track of all our medical records, and requiring naked scans before flying - all to keep us safe. They’d sure hate to miss any little clue, ya know.

The same Syrian rebels he’s arming?

BTW, have we ever figured out exactly who got Gadaffi’s 20,000+ Manpads that can each take down a commercial plane? Ty Woods was working on that in Benghazi when the military refused to send firepower to hit the targets he was painting - the terrorists firing grenades very accurately at the CIA annex.

Obama is for the Islamists and against us. Is there anybody with a brain who hasn’t figured that out yet?

It's not like we can trust the government and media to tell us the truth. We live in a surveillance state that can't find outspoken terrorist because it is too busy harassing patriotic Americans. I think that is what's going on. Just look at all those government memos calling the Tea Party and other patriotic groups, terrorist.

I believe they were mortar rounds. It takes about 3 rounds to zero in on a target if you have 'spotters'.

It was the third mortar round that hit Tyrone.
