    doesn't it need to be mixed with a fuel such as kerosene first? or can it go BOOM alone?

    Incredible explosion. Can't really understand storing hundreds of tons of ammonium nitrate at the "Fireworks and Petrol" depot though?

    Read about that somewhere in a news story awhile back, thought that's not going to end well.
    Something to do with confiscated chemicals I think.
    Tied up in red tape for years?
    Blast was felt in Cyprus!

    Probably. "Let's put this highly explosive ammonium nitrate downtown at our most vital seaport, what could go wrong?"

    I read there were fireworks involved, a large storage of fireworks near the building. If you watch the video you will see what looks like fireworks going off.

    since you cannot believe anything that anyone from there may say...appearantly...
    a bunch of their truck bombs detonated prematurely not in their intended locations.
    I cant forget the 300 marines that died there in an explosion because I knew one one who died there trying to help these people.

    It has to be coaxed for sure. Fuel source and or fire. Something tells me this was no accident.
    They laugh at me because I'm different; I laugh at them because they're all the same.

    One "theory" is that someone was welding near or on the storage hanger. Security had requested a gate & a hole in one of the buildings be repaired to prevent theft. If the welders didn't know what was in the building...

    What was the propellant used by Takata in their exploding airbags? One guess.
