Explosives Expert Has Theory on Beirut Explosion, Claims It Wasn't Ammonium Nitrate

After the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon last week there has been a lot of speculation as to what exactly caused the explosion.

There have been a number of theories ranging from a fireworks warehouse, a building that was storing ammonium nitrate, even that there was a Russian boat docked there for years which may have has something to do with the cause.

But Italian explosives expert Danilo Coppe has a different and frankly, a better theory which is the more likely cause.

Coppe says that he really doesn't buy into the mainstream story that the explosion was caused by ammonium nitrate, nor does he accept the theory that this had anything to do with fireworks.

"I don't think there was that amount of ammonium nitrate [2,750 tons] in the port of Beirut, or that there was a fireworks depot. Judging from the videos, it seems more like an explosion of an armament warehouse."

"I don't believe in the ammonium nitrate theory for several reasons. First, the quantity: 2,700 tons would mean that someone built an Olympic size swimming pool and filled it with that substance."

"The warehouse was over 100 meters long. It is not impossible that it contained those quantities & some documents seem to prove that the material was there for years… there should have been a catalyst, because otherwise it wouldn't all have exploded together."

"And then the ammonium nitrate, when it detonates, generates an unmistakable yellow cloud."

"Instead, from the videos of the explosion, in addition to the white sphere that is seen to widen, which is air condensation by the sea, you can clearly see a brick orange column tending to dark red, typical of the participation of lithium."

"… lithium-metal is the propellant for military missiles. I think there were armaments there."

Coppe also noted that, “Between the 1st & 2nd blasts, what appears to be fireworks are seen to crackle. Fireworks don't behave like that. They have some explosives & the rest is cardboard/plastic. Upon explosion, they are preceded by whistles, absent in the videos.”

I agree that this could not have been from a fireworks warehouse or facility. This wasn't what happened with previous fireworks factories that have exploded.
