Image may contain: text that says 'Kosmonaut Hegel @Kosmonaut_Hegel 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate (mostly utilized as a fertilizer) was stored at the Beirut port, ammonium nitrate has an RE factor of 1/0.74 compared to TNT. Meaning the explosion likely had a yield of 2 kilotons TNT equivalent, effectively the yield of a tactical nuclear warhead. HIE'

IIt's no wonder people thought this was a nuke.

Which begs the question: is "illegal fireworks" the new cover for the weapons trade with Hezbollah?
