    I have a problem seeing that as a fireworks explosion.

    Right, the final explosion was from HE, you can see it in the velocity and form of the shockwave.

    Fire works are nothing like that in speed.

    Just how much explosive would it take to make a ‘bang’ that big?

    About 10,000 12,000 pounds of TNT, depending on surroundings and placement.

    Being in Beruit, wouldn't you think illegal weapons storage?

    Just watched a couple of videos of massive amounts of TNT exploding and they were child's play compared to the Beirut explosion. Of course, they out in the desert with no buildings around.

    Tractor-trailer, if on wheels.

    I don't think the prime detonation was intended, probably a hidden load of explosives.

    Then again it could have been Moussard stopping the stuff from being brought to the border by the muzSlime bastards.

    What ships were in the area with iranian ties?

    This BBC article is indicating it may have been an explosive depot.

    "The internal security chief said it happened in an area housing highly explosive materials."

    "The cause of the explosion is still not known, but some reports suggest it may have been an accident. Lebanon's National News Agency reported a fire breaking out at what it called an explosives depot at the port before the explosion."
