This is a disgusting and despicable post.

If you say so but i suppose I should add some context. The currency is worthless, the government is on the verge of collapse and there is a pandemic so no one can help.

And completely all hypothetical as there is zero evidence to support your assertions.

They aren't assertions, it was one thing I said i was wondering about, the three things I mentioned there are in fact all true though. 

It's a baseless conspiracy theory, especially when you actually look into what was damaged, one of their most important international ports, a vital economic entry point for most of their imports.

So in reply to your wondering, no, it makes absolutely zero sense to think it could be intentional.

If it was Monsanto's Ammonium Nitrate, then they might have to pay for the dommages done, the Prime Minister of Lebanon already told reporters that the owners will have to pay. That might just be enough to break it's neck.

Lol, you really think Monsanto is going to pay a single cent on this? They will probably push the blame to some sub-contractor if they get blamed at all. Accountability is not really something mega corporations do.

And yet again you go and use your extremely superficial knowledge for conspiracy theories completely ignoring how the world actually works because it has a lot more working parts than you could ever process. Just sit this one out.

And while you sit around have a little read.

The "I gotta wonder though, is it an inside job to get some international aid into the country. The timing seems suspicious. " - Is an assertion. - And there is absolutely zero facts, evidence or anything else to back it up.

There are lots of dangerous materials stored all over the world, most of which are strictly regulated and protected and most of them in storage facilities of private companies. The best protection is useless against human error.

You're making pretty big leaps here first assuming the government is responsible and second that there wasn't proper protection.

2020 doesnt stop to be a disaster. Apparently ammonium nitrate is a very powerful explosive. As far as I read, more than 70 people are dead, more than 3000 injured.

Thats a big one yes, however the worse one is.... who stores that in a port area, thats important to the economy of the nation?
Who stores that, near residential area's? Stupid placement of dangerous compounds.

~100 dead, and ~4000 wounded.

Horrible explosion. Seems like this shit was stored there since 2013 just because of some ship which had too many defects to continue. 

And what a surprise that Trump already mentioned it could have been a bomb/attack...
