Pentagon chief on Beirut bombing: It really could have been an attack, President Trump is right

Conspiracy theories about the explosion in Beirut are only gaining momentum. It all began with a statement by US President Donald Trump that the explosion could have been caused by an attack on the port of the Lebanese capital. Now the head of the Pentagon, Mark Esper, has made a similar statement.


According to Esper, the Pentagon does not yet have accurate data on the cause of the most powerful explosion in Beirut. At the same time, the head of the US Department of Defense added:

But we believe President Trump made the correct assumption. It really could have been an attack. We know more and more every day. Yesterday I thought it was more like a tragic coincidence.

Esper said he sees the media as an attempt to create a rift between Donald Trump and the military.

Meanwhile, reports are coming from Beirut itself that the government has used the army and police special forces to expel protesters from government buildings. Several buildings in the center of the Lebanese capital are engulfed in flames. It is stated that the most controversial protesters staged the arson.

During the protests, one police officer was killed and dozens of law enforcement officers were injured. More than 700 civilians participating in the protests were injured and injured. About 20 people were arrested.

At the same time, the American diplomatic mission also managed to register there. The US embassy said they "support the right of the local population to peaceful protest." The released statement says that "the long-suffering people of Lebanon need the government to change course."

    Is Russia not to blame yet? Not? Well, wait, the accusations will go .... There, in the CIA, they have not yet had time to cook up the "evidence" in Photoshop.

      I am sure that this is already considered by default, highlighted like.
      This is very convenient - you yourself do not have to confess to crimes, since there is always someone at hand who can be blamed for everything.

      Well, the protests started very quickly, they need to be prepared. Here, everyone would have to deal with their problems, everyone should sort it out, and suddenly you threw everything away and was like that in your thoughts, well, I’ll have time for it all, I’ll go to protest. So maybe Trump is right, everything was preparing for this.

        Nobody today just like that, for nothing. does not protest for the idea. Sufficient funding - and you can take people out on the street for any rubbish. Here is my "blogger", for example, is in other worlds traveling now because of the "white carpet". And pour him another gram of powder and say: "FAS!", So he will climb anywhere without thinking. And the day before yesterday he arranged 2-3-4 at Links.

      The cargo of saltpeter previously belonged to the businessman Grechishkin from Khabarovsk.
      “It was clear from the very beginning that there was a Russian trace in the explosion in Beirut, and that this trace would lead to Khabarovsk. It would seem, what does Furgal have to do with it?
      Or this: businessman Grechishkin, sitting in Cyprus, read the words of Prince Borghese that the battleship Giulio Cesare would not serve in the Black Sea Fleet and also decided that his saltpeter would not be used in the fields in Lebanon. A specially trained group of saboteurs-welders consisting of Dzhamshut and Ravshan carried out their plans.

            The US interest is not obvious, but this does not mean that it certainly does not exist.
            There is a saying: the thief shouts: "Stop the thief!"
            Well, Trump may simply not know - they do not have one-man command of power - a kind of multi-headed hydra: they themselves spy on each other, compete and cover each other out in the name of preserving the halo of shining hail on the hill.
            And take the Americans at their word ... they are also recognized hypocrites due to the Protestant (or Puritan) ethic of capitalism (success) as a sign of God's chosenness. Those. grounded historically - this is their archetype.

      According to Esper, the Pentagon does not yet have accurate data on the cause of the most powerful explosion in Beirut.
      There are no exact data, but there is "evidence" that is "very, very secret" and conclusions are already being prepared ...

        Iran can be accused of exploding the ammunition brought by the sea for Hezbola, but it is difficult to blame for the attack on the storage site.
        Others are regularly "entertained" by this.

        Looks like. Trump went to another aggravation.
        Look, they will start organizing a new impeachment.

      And why should external actors be considered immediately? There are a lot of internal contradictions in Lebanon, perhaps they want to expel Hezbollah.

        Not possible, but it is. Only at the instigation of just external actors. In Macron's ultimatum to the Lebanese government, the main thing is to disarm Hezbollah, remove it from the power structures and give Beirut, the mountainous regions and the coastline under the control of UNIFIL (read NATO).
        But something else strikes me. You have half of the capital destroyed, foreign rescuers and doctors are dismantling the rubble, the wounded are being treated, and you are rebelling under the "Soros fist". Instead of uniting on such tragic days and working together, a custom-made storm was arranged. What kind of people ?!

      hi .By the way, whose saltpeter? The ship is Moldavian. It was brought from Georgia. The greed of profit and the lewdness since 2014 is Lebanese. The owner, like Igor Grechushkin, now lives in Cyprus with his wife Irina. His 20-year-old son Artem is studying computer science in Scotland. Team Russians with Ukrainians Even if saltpeter turns out that "Beloruskali" will not die at all. And how did it get to Georgia? The rattletrap seems to have drowned in 2018 that it brought saltpeter there. Yes, it's just a super duper script for the whole series: And as a result, some kind of Daher (this is a Lebanese surname printed by me for a bunch of words and no more) I climbed onto the roof of the warehouse what kind of crap to weld. not knowing what was down there for the wealth, the local authorities in 2014 confiscated and raked out the whole of Beirut
      Here, of course, there is still a lack of the head of the Pentagon with Trump with his own assumptions. Let the Poles be brought up. Those in the explosive conspiracy theories on the part of the Kremlin are world champions so far.
      It is clear that the residents of the city want to pester the perpetrators. And they perfectly understand that the main link in this whole tragedy is their own dull managers.

          Why don't they start there !? When it literally exploded. And how. That is what the locals should analyze about the evil American and Zionist conspiracies. When, due to the carelessness of their managers, half of the city was destroyed. It means it boiled. For what such a Faberge did this saltpeter in such quantities for so many years in the port kept them? And washed away the Arab spring there?

    They decided to talk about the attack in a preventive form. When they get to the bottom of the fact that the pens of the "friends of the whole world" are attached, they will already have a statement made with hints of the participation of the "interested party". Then (as always happens) the pumping of hysteria in the media and the angry statements of the followers.

Beirut has nothing to do with it - it is only interesting to Washington for the most disastrous operation in the history of not only American, but also world special forces. Itching in the ass. And we are not interested in Beirut. Is it only because the "KGB agents" will again be guilty. The CIA is already working on this, I think.

    "Support the right of the local population to peaceful protest"
    Well it started. It never happened, and here it is again. Either they quickly straddled the situation, or really, once again blew up the Middle East, in the literal sense of the word. If at first the incident with the explosion looked like ordinary Arab negligence, now the photographer's ears are beginning to appear in the "photograph". As the saying goes, "be quiet for a smart one," but America is itching to. Almost at the top of their voice they tell and show who benefits from it. That is, the United States. And this leads to other thoughts about what is happening, so to speak, plagued by vague doubts. If they could fit a battleship (1982, if I am not mistaken), and hammer in Beirut with direct fire from the main caliber, then what prevented them now from exploding a warehouse with saltpeter in Beirut.

          This is a real version of history, not an alternative one. The Syrians shot down several American and French planes, and one American pilot was captured. In response, New Jersey wiped out a couple of Syrian command posts in Lebanon and a couple of air defense batteries.

    Immediately, like a shaitan from a snuffbox, the Turkish Fuhrer got out with a proposal to restore the seaport of Beirut by Turkish capital, that is, to seize and privatize this branch of the Lebanese economy.
    And the Christian part of the city and the Orthodox churches and shrines of the only Christian state of BV (with an insignificant part of Muslims) suffered and destroyed the most.
    And this evokes suspicion, as does the seizure of GEORGIAN (for now) Ajaria, and the transfer of Orthodox Sofia to the mosque in Istanbul and the split of Orthodoxy in Ukraine, etc.

    I read an interview with the captain of the ship carrying saltpeter. He says the saltpeter was packed in double bags. Inner polyethylene and outer polypropylene. The outer ones were quite thick. Each bag weighed a ton. They themselves could not tear and crumble. The explosion had to be initiated. Otherwise, detonation did not occur. Therefore, it is very likely that someone started a fire and then detonated the detonator on the quiet. Given that there are so many warring groups in Lebanon, it could have been anyone to overthrow the government.

    The cargo of saltpeter previously belonged to the businessman Grechishkin from Khabarovsk.
    “It was clear from the very beginning that there was a Russian trace in the explosion in Beirut, and that this trace would lead to Khabarovsk. It would seem, what does Furgal have to do with it?
    Or like this: businessman Grechishkin, sitting in Cyprus, read the words of Prince Borghese that the battleship Giulio Cesare would not serve in the Black Sea Fleet and also decided that his saltpeter will not be used in the fields in Lebanon... A specially trained group of saboteurs-welders consisting of Dzhamshut and Ravshan carried out their plans.

    The most murky thing about this Beirut story is the port of shipment and the port of delivery of saltpeter. Where did such a quantity of saltpeter come from in Poti? As far as I know, there is no production of nitrogen fertilizers in Georgia at all. And why does Namibia need so much saltpeter with a very modest agriculture in Namibia? The conclusion suggests itself that the cargo was transported from nowhere to nowhere and was deliberately left in Beirut. It was a multi-step operation aimed at compromising Hezbollah. Who needs to compromise Hezbollah and rock the situation in Lebanon? The easiest way is to track down and interrogate team members. The captain, as an interested person, will not tell the truth. But what is strange, Pertova and Basharova were even looking for a break in the social network, and here no one is looking for the ship's command.
