Did Beirut Nuke Itself?

explosion

At 18:07 local time (15:07 UTC) on the 4th of August, 2020, the city of Beirut, Lebanon was rocked by a massive explosion. It was judged to be the equivalent to around 1.2 kilotons of TNT 18:07 local time (15:07 UTC(5.0 TJ) . The explosion was detected by the United States Geological Survey as a seismic event of magnitude 3.3; was felt in Turkey, Syria, Israel, and parts of Europe; and was heard in Cyprus more than 250 km (160 mi) away.

  • There were at least 171 deaths, 6,000 injuries, $10–15 billion in property damage, and left an estimated 300,000 people homeless.
  • Within the port area, the explosion destroyed a section of shoreline and left a crater roughly 124 m (407 ft) in diameter and 43 m (141 ft) in depth.
  • The cruise ship Orient Queen, berthed nearby, suffered extensive damage. Two members of the crew were killed,[143] and seven crew members were injured. The ship capsized overnight.
  • Six ships docked in the harbor were damaged or destroyed.
  • Beirut–Rafic Hariri International Airport, 10 kilometers away was damaged.

The explosion was explained in the Media as the explosion of a warehouse full of ammonium nitrate. When the U.S. detonated the Trinity test on July 16, 1945, a press release explained that the explosion was due to an ammunition dump exploding.

The actual release

WAS IT A NUKE?

A “FIZZLE” occurs when a nuclear weapon detonates and it does not result in a “NUCLEAR YIELD”. There is only film of a Fizzle in the public domain is the failed detonation of the REDWING device.

Note that REDWING was a thermonuclear device that the initial flash was the fission device detonating to boost the fusion portion. This flash was not seen in Beirut. Footage of the Beirut explosion documenting the tell-tale pinkish plume of neutron radiation bombarding the camera lens have been deleted from the Internet.

The information received by the Africa ExPress from a trusted military source that wants to remain anonymous: “The cause of the explosion that devastated Beirut on the evening of August 4 was caused by a tactical nuclear weapon stored at the port. 

At the time of this post, the theory that Israel attacked Lebanon with a nuclear weapon is false.

A pressure wave measurement or “P-Wave” is a measurement of seismic signals. It is used by the U.S. and other Nuclear Powers to monitor the World for nuclear detonations.

A P-Wave produced by the Beirut explosion was initially reported by several countries. As with every other evidence that supports this line of thinking has been purged from the Internet.

Did “Bad Actors” have a nuke in Beirut and it got away from them? Los Alamos almost nuked itself in 1946.

One of the worst accidents involved Louis Slotin, a Canadian scientist in charge of monitoring plutonium chain reactions in a device known as the “guillotine.” One day the Slotin’s screwdriver got jammed in the guillotine, causing the plutonium to form a hypercritical mass capable of explosion. Immediately Slotin tore apart the two pieces of plutonium with his bare hands and in the process absorbed an enormous amount of radiation.

The event is dramatically portrayed in the movie “Fat Man and Little Boy “, but the actual incident happened on May 21, 1946​. Slotin died nine days later.

B-36 Drops Nuke on Albuquerque

B-36 Peacekeeper

May 22, 1957- A B-36 aircraft (52-2816) of the 334th Bombardment Squadron, 95th Bombardment Wing, was transporting a Mark 17 ten-megaton hydrogen bomb from Biggs AFB, Texas to Kirkland AFB, New Mexico. As the aircraft was on approach to Kirkland and over Albuquerque, New Mexico, the thermonuclear device, weighing 42,000 pounds, dropped from the bomber just 4 miles south of Albuquerque.

Accounts of what caused the incident vary, but one version suggests that a crewmember in the bomb bay was jolted by sudden turbulence. He grabbed hold of the manual bomb release lever to steady himself, causing the weapon to crash through the closed bomb bay doors and plummet to earth.

Richard ″Dick″ Meyer, 62, a retired lieutenant colonel, told the El Paso (Texas) Times that a crewman between the wings and the tail of the aircraft saw what had happened.

″Simultaneously, he called, ‘Bombs away,’ and the plane lurched upward about 1,000 feet when it lost so much weight at once,″ Meyer said.

″And someone yelled, ‘Oh, SHIT.’ It might have been me,″ Meyer said.

The weapon plummeted 1700 feet to earth and exploded. The physics package which made the bomb nuclear was not installed for obvious safety reasons. However, the conventional explosives used to support the detonation of the package did explode. A crater 25 feet in diameter was formed and a cow was killed. Radioactive material remaining in the weapon showered down for a mile around the explosion. The Air Force reimbursed the farmer for his cow and the city of Albuquerque for the land and roads destroyed when the Air Force removed the contaminated soil.
