What happened? My incredibly stupid younger self said things that were wrong, and then decided to also post personal information. Which I have since edited out, but it was quoted by other people. As others have said, a GHR will solve the personal ID problem. And don't worry about the stupid stuff. ...

What’s the budget for this re-enactment? Did the Army of the Potamac get to March around in large, endless columns of handsome blue uniforms and caps? With the drums beating (marching drummers), the US flag poles raised high and the officers leading on horseback with swords? Could the soldiers line...

In my own defense, I was only describing the early stages of the debacle. I did not exonerate the government, they handled it terribly after it was on the dock. However the shit would never have been on an unseaworthy vessel with a near mutinous crew, and it never would have come into Beirut harbor...

Both countries appear to have perfectly good coastal highways. There is a rail gap between Nahariya and somewhere close to the Israel-Lebanon border -- I can't tell where Lebanon's railways end in their south -- but I suspect that if it was necessary and desirableable, a single-track line could be ...

Is that a limitation of that port's capacity, or simply where ships go? I mean, not every port here on the US East Coast runs at full capacity all the time, and there's active competition between ports to attract ships (and the work and fees that go with them). That being said, yes, the Israeli por...

If an enemy were to attack the US. One thing they would want to do is disable the US's secure communications to Europe.

The port of Beirut not counting the naval base (which is also unusable at the moment). Handles roughly 7,000 ships per year. The next largest port handles roughly 450 ships per year.

I'm not sure where people get this idea that it's only an explosive in mixtures, but ammonium nitrate will blow up all by itself. It's a relatively common accident.

Thats the least of our concerns when its ruined thousands of lives and taken hundreds. True, I just wanted to get the topic back on track. Are the gov buildings okay? Given that most buildings in Beirut are damaged, they probably are too. This collection of photos of the damage shows that the parli...

Honestly, anytime anyone ever mentions ISIS now, the only thing I can think of is that time Al Qaeda said they needed to tone it down, and they shot back that Al Qaeda are the “jews of jihad”. I don’t really understand the exact message there, but it’s clearly an insult in context. ...Don't most an...

Wouldn't that just make them look like idiots once the truth about the fertilizer came out?

There is no evidence this is a terror attack, and video evidence that strongly suggests it was an accident.

I don't think it was. You can see it burning before the explosion, and ammonium nitrate does tend to explode when it has been burning for a certain amount of time. And given that we are talking about thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate going up at once, it's not surprising that this was the effec...
