After every explosions, there's videos on YouTube with a slow motion replay saying it was a missle. This is what happens when people think Hollywood movies are depictions of real explosions.

Let me guess, the firef!ghters are going to be paid off by the government to not say anything about finding missile fragments in the debris when they search for survivors right?

obviously the fire dpt are gov plants, put there to destroy evidence of the missile

Science to the rescue!

The ammonia was in the air, at the point of explosion the amount in the air was concentrated enough to ignite.

Just wondering by your username, but are you Irish? Was thinking if you were, then you'd prob be familiar w/the fertilizer bombs the IRA used and how nasty fertilizer can be when it's on fire and the such.

An explosion at a plant full of explosive materials doesn't add up?

It almost looks like a missile hit the plant before it blew up look at the video closely.
Stop it.
For all the shady sh*t going on, this nonsense doesn't aid a damn thing. Not EVERYTHING is government a.ssisted.

At around 6:50PM yesterday in West, Texas, just a few miles from Waco, a fertilizer plant plant owned by Adar Grain Inc. exploded with a force that reduced 50 units at a nearby apartment complex to "just a skeleton," registering as the equivalent of a magnitude 2.1 earthquake with the US Geological Survey.

About 50 minutes earlier, a West Fertilizer building called the "dry barn" caught fire and was completely engulfed in flames at the time the explosion occurred. The dry barn, said a West employee, was used to store ammonium nitrate ó a chemical compound of ammonia and nitric acid that is both a potent fertilizer and, under the right circumstances, a powerful explosive. Itís used in everything from construction and mining to IEDs, but probably best known as the fertilizer in the bomb that Timothy McVeigh used in his 1995 Oklahoma City attack. Last night, Department of Public Safety spokesman DL Wilson compared the current scene in West to the damage sustained by McVeighís target, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. At this point, over 100 people are reported to have been injured in the blast, with at least five believed dead.

"WATER, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, WILL SET OFF ANHYDROUS AMMONIA."

Itís still unclear whether ammonium nitrate, other chemicals, or a combination, were responsible for the blast at West Fertilizer. Many media reports so far have focused on the presence of anhydrous ammonia, one of the components used to make ammonium nitrate. Physicist Michio Kaku told CBS News that water from fire hoses could have reacted with the anhydrous ammonia on the premises. "Water, under certain conditions, will set off anhydrous ammonia," he explained. "The hose water might have set off the anhydrous ammonia, creating a chain reaction." Under normal conditions, ammonia is not explosive.

HOT POOLS OF AMMONIUM NITRATE CAN FORM WHEN IT'S CONFINED

Likewise, ammonium nitrate is rated as non-flammable and since it doesnít detonate under normal conditions (i.e., when itís not in the presence of fuel oil), itís generally thought to be non-hazardous. However, an Australian government report notes that in a fire, hot pools of ammonium nitrate can form when the chemical is confined, making it very sensitive to shock if it comes in contact with other flammable or combustible materials, oil, metals, or other chemicals. It is also a strong oxidizing agent, supplying oxygen to the fuel in a fire even when thereís no air available. That strong oxidizing property can even risk causing combustible materials like paper and oil to ignite.

The story is still unfolding. Rescue teams are still searching for the missing, and Police Sgt. William Patrick Swanton is telling the press that it will be a slow process going forward. "It is tedious, it is time consuming, it is a very methodical process they are doing," he said.

First of this is a fertilizer plant. It is basic common sense that a big giant flame can explode a building across from it especially when there is flammable vapor around that building. It is fertilizer which is highly flammable and a main ingredient on home made bombs. You want to mimic that explosion at home. Light a candle then poor Alcohol all over some fire works and put it away from the flame. The alcohol vapor should ignite the firework and make it explode since the vapor is what us highly flammable. Think how big that flame is. Now think about how static shock can make a car explode when gassing up. Now times that by a million.
