Texan plant is just a coincidence, unfortunately it's the worse place to have a fire start, and that is a fertilizer plant, all that fertilizer packed into silos is one large bomb ready to go off. And it did exactly that with huge effect.

The Shockwave alone must have been equivalent to a high yield nuclear warhead.

Texans sure love their explosions, one guy detonated his excess fertilizer a year or two ago in his back yard, and it caused such a shockwave that it fooled the local earthquake monitor into thinking a huge earthquake happened. Also he was picked up by the homeland security as a terrorist attempt. Yeah.

Has there ever been a bombing/shooting/etc that people didn't immediately cry "hoax!" and blame on the government?

my heart goes out to all the Boston people.... but I am sure that this bomb was plant by your Government themselves, just so they find a reason to start the war with North Korea or Iran...

as you all know, how much American gov want to whip out NK, & united Korea as one...

as for Iran, the only reason I can find is that OIL.. ( just like Iraqi ) no offence to the 9/11 victim...

No, PEPCON was bigger and is equally as bad a place to have a fire start, if not worse. (PEPCON was several KILOtons. Nuclear weapons are in the order of MEGAtons)

PEPCON had 10.5 million pounds of ammonium perchlorate (or AP) stored in one location, in open containers. AP is a main component in solid rocket fuel. By itself, it is harmless, but contaminate it, and/or give it an ignition source, and you're looking at something that is by weight, 55% O2, the air we breathe is by weight, 29% O2. So that should give you an idea how well it burns.

So, that got going, that then started using itself as fuel, and the aluminum bins and poly barrels provided the two other components found in SRBs (solid rocket boosters), rubber and aluminium.

When that got to exploding, it got to exploding with a 3.5 on the Richter scale, the earlier explosions at PEPCON measured a 3 on the same scale and when all was said and done, it left a crater fifteen feet deep.

Lesson learned? Don't store so much potentially explosive stuff in one place. I just hope the fertilizer industry changes its own procedures after this.

These disasters and "coincidences" won't stop. They will only grow more and more frequent.
I'm still waiting for an explanation on why the professionally trained sniffer dogs were reacting to explosives and no necessary actions were taken to evacuate people.

What I am saying is the Texan explosion is just a coincidence that happened at the wrong time (well there wouldn't be a right time for it to happen.. but it's timing sucked).

Do you have any evidence of that, other than what the track coach said? Surely more people must have heard it, no?

I guess more people must have heard it because i haven't even heard of this track coach you speak of.
I seen footage of multiple bystanders talking about it, supposedly minutes after it happened. If you want to see it im sure it would be onlime by now, but having said all of this i still consider all theories rather than be in the mindstate that i am right and everyone else is wrong.
