If you think you know everything you need to know about the Aug 2020 blast that destroyed half of Beirut - a blast that Human Rights Watch in a recent report calls "one of the largest non-nuclear explosions in history" - here are some things that might change your mind
1/ ImageImage
Did you know that an Oct 2020 FBI report concluded only 552 tonnes of ammonium nitrate exploded on 4 Aug 2020, a FIFTH of 2,754 tonnes that arrived on a Russian-leased cargo ship in 2013 that was widely assumed from Day One to be the cause of the blast?
Did you know all those bags of "NITROPRILL HD" seen in the photos of the Beirut warehouse were NOT blasting agents? The HD means "high density" which is the way NH4NO3 is prilled for FERTILIZER! "Experts" like Jeffrey Lewis @ArmsControlWonk were wrong to suggest otherwise.

1/🧵An Epiphany: #delirium treated w touch & eye contact, day by day...his mom cried, “He won’t let us help him shake this damned disease.” Finally his mind cleared. “What matters to you? How can I help?” Slowly, surely, he asked, “Doc, can you help me stop drinking?”💔
2/ #GroundZero. What a privilege it is to witness someone enter a long-awaited epiphany that opens the door to so much recovery. Unfortunately, in my early years as a doc, I thought, “Well, this isn’t critical care, so I’ll move on & let someone else take over.”

#shame on me
3/ But what is a doctor for?

1. To reduce human suffering & heal people where they are.
2. Plus the Latin root is “docere,” teacher.

It’s a dual vocation: healer + teacher. Because of the “Law of the Gift,” I know that the more I give, the more I receive, so…

After 8 policemen who went to arrest #VikasDubey were neutralised & 'horror stories' of the planning & gunning down of men in khaki emerged, the Don's days were numbered. Prosecution & conviction through Fast Track Courts (till SC) should be the aim to cleanse the rot in system.

CW Blood and a corpse.
Midoriya woke up to the all too familiar metallic smell. He sat up and looked at himself then let out a groan. He went to the bathroom and took a shower, the red water running down the drain. He sighed sitting under the hot water

Trump is claiming he was at the Twin Towers on 9/11 attempting to rescue people.
Trump Tower is over SIX MILES from #GroundZero.
Trump would have had to walk SIX MILES in soot and ash to get there.
And then walk SIX MILES back home.
Keep in mind that Trump has repeatedly claimed he witnessed "thousands of Muslims celebrating" from his windows at Trump Tower.
He couldn't be in both places.
Trump later mocked a disabled reporter, Serge Kovaleski, he claimed had reported it. He hadn't.
This isn't one of Trump's minor lies.
This is 9/11.
Did Trump walk SIX MILES in a suit and dress shoes?
Or did he put on golfing clothes?
Do we believe the guy who will take an umbrella away from his wife to protect his hair in the rain would get his hair covered in ash?
