Ex-intel-insider Gordon Duff of Veterans Today has garnered almost half a million reads for “The Beirut Nuclear Coverup as Protests Break Out, Oct. 2021 Over Lies.” And that’s just in English. His analysis of the Beirut blast has reached tens of millions in Arabic and Farsi.

Duff writes:

“The people of Lebanon were victimized, not once by a nuclear attack by Israel but by their own leaders and corrupt press. They still aren’t taking it. Gunfire broke out in Beirut when snipers under the control of Saudi Arabia, using paid contractors trained by the US, attacked a Hezbollah led protest. Behind it all is the investigation by incorruptible Judge Tarek Bitar.

“Bitar has received evidence of two things:

  • There was no “fertilizer explosion” a year ago. Fertilizer can’t explode unless carefully mixed into an explosive compound called ANFO. Get the mix wrong, nothing happens. Bagged fertilizer is far from a compound made in an explosives factory…it is totally inert…won’t even burn.
  • Then there are all the videos of the missiles…with fake editing by CNN and their Israeli partners, not just the missiles but the Israeli F 16s as well with many videos of them diving over apartment buildings before the massive blast.

“Doctors were forced to treat radiation patients improperly, misdiagnose them and then cover up the real number of deaths…and the outbreak of cancers since…” (full article)

  1. There goes America’s greatest ally committing wacky crimes against humanity again. Can you believe it? Those Zionists sure are a bunch of characters!

  2. Nah. The corrupt, stupid port authority let tons of ammonium nitrate bake in a warehouse. Then some yokel casually flicks his cigarette away, over by the diesel fuel containers for the generators that power the office AC, which starts a fire, which ignites the fireworks stored on the dock, which leads to explosive combustion of the giant fertilizer bomb nobody could ever be bothered to do anything about.

    But this is not what actually happened in reality: the main explosion produced a coherent shockwave, i.e. a single pressure wave with a single origin in time and place. Such perfect synchronism is impossible to achieve with thousands of ammonium nitrate kegs scattered over a long warehouse. Not a snowball chance in hell for it to happen.

    Your sarcasm is misplaced.

    There exist “clean”, radiation-free, fusion nuclear weapons that have been under development since 2006, following a breakthrough discovery made at the Sandia laboratories, Los Alamos. This discovery was taken control of by Israel at a very early stage.

    https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2006/03/060308212104.htm

    Such fusion nuclear weapon, free of the traditional fission igniter used in the H bomb, would release in theory no radioactive fallout (except for some unfinished reactions).

    Plausible explanations but no ‘follow the money’ analysis.

    A few ‘new world order’ nutcases is an Andrew Anglin type explanation.

    Israel is just a fall guy, a bit like George Soros and Bill Gates, who, like Mussolini, whom they attempt to emulate politically, will probably end up hanging by their necks from lampposts somewhere after the SHTF and the people take their (misplaced) vengeance.

    The Rothschilds bought Jerusalem off the Ottoman Empire in 1829, so anything about Benny Gantz, Netanyahu or even the new mass murderer in charge Bennett, is pure window dressing.

    Since the Rothschilds run the privately owned City of London, that they lease in perpetuity in return for 2% of the profits from the Rothschild run fraud, the Bank of England, a nuclear bombing of the City is a direct attack on the Rothschilds. Thus equating the nuclear explosion in Beirut with those in London does not hold water. The two have different originators.

    The Beirut attack was a Rothschild instigated enterprise. The City of London attack was from another source, unless there is conflict within the ruling oligarch family itself… So is the Rothschild family fighting the Rothschild family, so as to say?

    This looks like the answer doesn’t it. The rulers are fighting it out amongst themselves. Not the Warburgs vs the Rothschilds, but one faction of the Rothschilds fighting another faction of the Rothschilds. And we all thought the Rothschilds were homogeneous. After all they are a large clan.

    So which branch of the clan has the upper hand today with the Build Back Better mumbo jumbo? I bet Julian Assange knows. Which is why he is being kept incommunicado without having suffered the Epstein trauma!

    Ammonium Nitrate requires no mixing to detonate—-only an ignition source.In Beirut the ignition source were sparks created by metal working as I recall.

    From Scientific American

    But ammonium nitrate has a potentially lethal downside: If it comes into contact with an open flame or other ignition source, it explodes violently. The explosive force occurs when solid ammonium nitrate decomposes very rapidly into two gases, nitrous oxide and water vapor.

    The deadliest industrial accident in U.S. history occurred in the port of Texas City, Texas, in 1947. A carelessly tossed cigarette started a fire aboard a ship carrying about 2,300 tons (2,086,000 kilograms) of ammonium nitrate packed in paper sacks. [The 10 Greatest Explosions Ever]

    When the chemical exploded, it caused a blast powerful enough to knock people to the ground in Galveston, Texas, 10 miles (16 kilometers) away.

    The detonation also caused a chain reaction when a nearby ship, also carrying ammonium nitrate, exploded, setting fires at chemical tanks and oil refineries near the port. An estimated 581 people were killed in the disaster.

    Duff has an erratic history. I stopped paying attention to him because it was too much work sorting out the fake news from the real news.

    I’ve been waiting for some reliable 3rd party evidence that the big blast in Beirut was a nuke, and haven’t seen any yet.

    My current opinion is there are enough self-sacrificing investigative journalists, and its easy enough to collect data on the aftermath of nuclear explosions, that if it had been a nuke, then by now there would be reliable 3rd party evidence on the internet that it was a nuke.

    However if it was a nuke, info about this would be intensely suppressed, and its likely any journalist caught collecting evidence that it was a nuke would be assassinated (which would explain the lack of info), so my mind is still open on this question.

    What the Machiavellian globalists have done to Lebanon is terrible. If there is reliable evidence that it was a nuke, this would help shift the political balance in a better direction, so I’m still waiting and hoping for that evidence.

    An excellent new (and short) documentary is available for streaming, ‘Shockwave’. It was worth my time. There was a giant fertilizer explosion in Texas City in 1947, 600 died. Yes, it was at a fertilizer plant. Just like the 2013 explosion at the West Fertilizer plant, also in Texas. Fertilizer laying around (loose, not in bags or barrels) for seven years in Beirut, in a warehouse where rent hasn’t been paid for seven years and the chain-of-ownership is pretty sketch, might be could have been used for planned something. You know, in the region.

    One thing I did note around that time was a lot of pro-active anti-terror activity. Solemani bombed back to Allah (did anyone ever get an answer as to why an Iranian General was in Iraq?) and more than a dozen Iranian nuclear sites, weapons caches, militia sites, mysterious fires, a shipyard and petrochemical plant bombed, etc. (happened around July and August 2020, just before the Beirut port explosion).

    Just ask any explosives expert about the possibility of blowing thousands of tons of Ammonium Nitrate without having recourse to a real powerful detonator and you will get the confirmation that such a deed is impossible. If you want to investigate further just look at the Tianjin Ammonium Nitrate factory explosion in 2015 and notice the difference in the intensity of the explosions.

    Thousands of Lebanese residents of Beirut saw and heard the Israeli F16s roaming the skies of Beirut seconds before the explosion. This criminal state of Israel has perpetrated horrific crimes in her brief existence with the nuking of Beirut hardly her finale.

    The explosion happened when I happened to be visiting a friend in Beirut whose house is between 6 to 7 kilometres away from the port on a straight line. We felt an earthquake for 5 to 6 seconds and 2 to 3 seconds later we heard the explosion. This means that the land vibration speed exceeded that of the speed of sound. If you ever come to Lebanon and speak directly and randomly to anyone living at such a distance, you will get the same story, guaranteed.

    There isn’t any way to tell what stupidity is going on in a mass of industrial warehouses. The only solution is to stay away from industrial areas, which isn’t easy to do unless you are independently wealthy or live in a rural area.

    Twice in my life I’ve been gassed when an industrial accident released a cloud of toxic gas. Twice there has been a very strong smell of natural gas outside. So far I’ve been lucky and nothing big exploded near me, and none of the gasses caused permanent injury.

    As far as I know pure fusion bomb is still theoretical only; all bombs in arsenals have element of fission – at the minimum the igniter, as you said yourself.

    A fusion reaction requires extremely high temperatures, over 1 billion degree. This is why small, fission A bombs are used as triggers to initiate the reaction of fusion, H bombs. It is the former, the trigger, that generates most of the subsequent radioactivity.

    But a revolutionary breakthrough was accidentally made in 2003, and officially described and confirmed in 2006. While experimenting on a Z-machine (an installation intended at testing nuclear weapons) and a new plasma “liner”, the researchers at the Sandia Laboratories realised that they were getting several times over more energy from the system than they put into it, and understood they had inadvertently created a fusion reaction without initial fission, producing over 3 billion degree Kelvin.

    Ion Viscous Heating in a Magneto-hydrodynamically Unstable Z Pinch at Over 2×10^9 Kelvin

    https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.96.075003

    This discovery was almost immediately taken control of by PR relays in Israel, according to French physicists. It also lead to a secret and vast overhaul of the US nuclear arsenal.

    The military applications of this discovery is that fusion thermonuclear weapons, scalable, with no inferior yield limit and no radioactive fallout, would have, unbeknownst to the general public, been developed over the last 18 years by the US, under Israeli control.

    Such undetectable nuclear weapon is most likely what was used to bomb the Beirut harbour, and competent weapon engineers in Russia and China are well aware of it, because they are developing the same. They would have informed their regional friends and allies, Syria, Iran, Hezbollah. Hezbollah are not randomly demonstrating: they know.

    https://nationalinterest.org/blog/reboot/china-will-soon-have-its-own-z-machine-test-mock-nuclear-explosions-166995

    Gordon Duff is right; he must have insider information and is ahead of the public. He will be proven right in a few years, when the existence of these weapons will become too widespread to hide.

    That quadruple quantity actually make the “accident” hypothesis far less credible, not more credible.

    Any one explosion produces a unique supersonic pressure shock wave, called the “blast” in layman term. A shockwave with a unique origin in time, and a unique origin in location, is said to be coherent, i.e it produces one single set of pressure ripples expanding at the exactly same speed from the single point of origin of the explosion.

    The Beirut explosion was a coherent shockwave: it is very visible from the videos, and also proven by the seismic record.

    It is simply impossible that 2,750 tons of AN, so probably something in the order of over 5000 separate, distinct, kegs scattered over a large warehouse, would have, by magic, exploded almost all at the same time to produce a perfectly coherent shockwave.

    Unless of course, Yahweh managed to temporarily suspend the laws of physics and probabilities for the sake of the Chosen, as happened on 9/11…

    Well, my knowledge is based on information that is in public domain so it might be imperfect – perhaps pure fusion weapons exist already. Fine. But you still didn’t address the fact this creates contradiction: the article claims there WERE victims of radiation. So you need to show how there could be radiation that was strong enough to kill just over a year ago, but is completely undetectable today – or admit this article is just a steaming pile of nonsense.

  24. Iris says:

    Hell ; yours is an excellent question. The article’s statements are correct but definitely require clarifying.

    Aneutronic fusion is a fusion reaction where very specific elements are combined in a fusion reaction. These elements are chosen so as the entire number of protons and neutrons available add up and leave no free neutrons to be released on their own.

    For instance, the most common fusion reactions are:
    – Lithium/Hydrogen (Li7+H1), requires 0.5 billion degree, by-product is 2 off Helium He4 nuclei
    – Boron/Hydrogen (B17+H1), requires 1 billion degree, by-product is 3 off Helium He4 nuclei

    So in the Physics Theory, everything works like a perfect Lego with the exact number of perfect pieces falling all in place together.

    But this not true at all in the real life, where a fraction of the fusion reactions are imperfect and release harmful radioactivity under the form of neutrons.

    This feature of a fusion reaction is called the “neutronicity” and is defined as the fraction of energy released as harmful neutrons. It measures the “imperfection” rate of the fusion reaction and informs on the level of radioactive fallout to expect.

    Aneutronic fusion, then – they are talking about producing safe energy, not bombs that would be indistinguishable from conventional explosions. What would be the point, anyway? Has it ever occurred to you that if Israelis wanted to blow up Beirut it would be actually much more obvious and prudent for them to take advantage of mismanagement of port facilities there, rather than reveal their highly secret weapons?

    Aneutronic fusion is something that would require building-size facilities, not something that could be dropped from an F-16. Your own link says: “These numbers are another indication that aneutronic fusion power is not possible with mainline confinement concepts. ”

    We felt an earthquake for 5 to 6 seconds and 2 to 3 seconds later we heard the explosion. This means that the land vibration speed exceeded that of the speed of sound.

    That is perfectly normal and to be expected : the speed of sound (vibration) is much greater in the ground than in the air.

    So the sequence is to see the flash/feel the ground vibration/ear the explosion, and the farther away you are, the greater the time separation between them.

    “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit”

    I have another, better saying: calling something bullshit when it is common knowledge even to village idiots means the bullshit “is in the eye of the beholder“.

    Any village idiot knows that fission nuclear energy is used for both military applications and civilian uses (Over 70% of France’s electrical energy is produced by nuclear reactors).

    Similarly, any semi-literate imbecile knows that nuclear fusion is used to produce weapons (the H bomb has been around since the mid-50), but is also frantically experimented upon for peaceful industrial purposes, since it would provide an endless, infinite, almost perfectly clean source of energy.

    Aneutronic fusion is something that would require building-size facilities,

    No. A fusion reaction such as the extraordinary breakthrough result obtained by the US Sandia laboratories can be triggered by the electrical current discharge produced by a reasonable size magnetic flux compression generator.

    These devices were invented many decades ago by Russian physicist Andrei Sakharov, and can be as small as a cigarette pack. The suitable Russian disk generator already available to the Americans/Israelis in 2006 is only one metre long.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Explosively_pumped_flux_compression_generator

    not something that could be dropped from an F-16.

    At least you got this one right, albeit by accident.

    I don’t think the new-generation fission nuclear bomb used by Israel to blow up Beirut was dropped by an F16: it was most likely hidden in a small-size container or crate, and petty corruption used to unwittingly move it into the harbour warehouse

    I reckon that Hezbollah knows that, but shows restrain in accusing other Lebanese factions, since the harbour was notoriously under Christian Lebanese Forces control.

  29. @El Dato

    A serious problem in Western Societies is how few adults have studied sciences ( STEM ) even to the end of secondary school. In the last 50 years, academic standards have declined, in some cases collapsed. This is now part of the dumbing down of the curricululum, decreed by the hostile elite who are our masters.
    Hence, so many commenters seems gulled by this nuking of Beirut hoax. Even a little scientific knowledge would expose it as nonsense.

    The political class are largely composed of middle managers and mediocre lawyers. They, also, assume everyone is as scientifically ignorant as they are. That’s how the COVID scam has been so effective.
    You’re probably far too young, but I first became aware of this in the early 1970s at the time of the Giscard Sniffer Plane scandal. I doubt the press would expose it if it happened now.

    No: you’ve got it all wrong.

    The frantic experimentation into nuclear fusion for peaceful purposes is a much more difficult problem than making a fusion explosion. In the former, the enormous heat must be contained by some kind of charged plasma, not to mention an adequate container vessel itself. This is an incredibly difficult problem. This heat is then used to vaporize water to drive steam turbines, and then Faraday induction creates the flow of electrons.

    Making a fusion bomb is far simpler than sustaining and containing a fusion reaction without causing explosions.

    Certainly, you do not have this all worked out. Perhaps a little reading on ITER might be in order before you hoist yourself with your own guttersniping petards.

    Hi T. Thanks for the excellent and very pedagogical explanation; I could never have put it so well myself.

    The hypothesis that Israel used a new type of fusion nuclear weapon to blow up the Beirut harbour is most likely true. New undetectable nuclear weapons have been developed the public is not yet aware of.

    In 2003, the Sandia laboratories, while experimenting on a new plasma liner with a Z-machine, accidentally provoked a fusion reaction.
    By 2006, they had confirmed that this wasn’t an error of interpretation:
    https://newsreleases.sandia.gov/releases/2006/physics-astron/hottest-z-output.html

    They required the UK’s professor Malcolm Haines to theorise their ground-breaking results:
    https://www.osti.gov/biblio/991002

    Very soon afterwards, this discovery was covered up and taken control of by Israel. French physicists who made any inquiry where directed towards a PR officer in….Tel Aviv !

    The fusion reaction was created by the Z-machine, delivering a 20 million Amp electrical discharge to the plasma liner, in a fraction of microsecond. But while the Z-machine is a big installation with large capacitor banks, it is not necessary to provide such discharge.

    The much smaller, portable magnetic flux compression generators invented by Andrei Sakharov can produce the electrical discharges required to trigger the fusion reaction.

    For instance, the Russian disk generator already available circa 2006, based on explosives, could deliver 35 million amps in a fraction of microsecond. It weighed only about 100 kilos and would have fitted in a modest shipping crate. Its technology was shared with the Americans and the French in the 1990’s, when Russia was being regularly raped by the West.

    https://sgp.fas.org/othergov/doe/lanl/pubs/00326620.pdf

    So this is it: 16 years ago, the only two pieces required to produce an undetectable fusion nuclear weapon were already available: a magnetic flux compressor as trigger on one hand, and a plasma liner with a design allowing to foster the fusion reaction on the other hand.
    Who would bet this hasn’t been developed into an operational weapon?

    Gordon Duff is most likely correct, and all competent weapon engineers worldwide think the same.
    Thierry Meyssan, with his undisputed contacts in the French military, said very early that “a new type of weapon” was used in Beirut.
    President Trump, after talking to his generals and while still uncensored, said it was “a weapon of some sort“.

    Finally, it is certain that the Russians and possibly the Chinese work on similar weapons, and probably possess them already. They would have briefed their Iranian, Lebanese and other regional allies about what really happened at the Beirut harbour: it was bombed by Israel with a new-generation, undetectable fusion nuclear bomb.

If it was us, and I hope it was us, then we should be proud of it, and with that we will create a balance of terror. By avoiding saying it’s us – we are putting ourselves on the dark side of morality.” This is the real Israel, not the one claiming to belong to humanity.

    Feiglin thanked God for organising such a “marvellous celebration”, referring to the blast. “Today is Tu B’Av, it is a day to rejoice – and a sincere and great thanks to the Lord and all the geniuses and heroes (!) who organised this marvellous celebration in honour of the holiday of love,” he wrote.

    This is Israel – no more, no less.

    When American Airlines Flight 11 struck the World Trade Center’s North Tower on September 11, 2001, then-Mossad chief Efraim Halevy was in the middle of a meeting with then-prime minister Ariel Sharon.

    In his Economist essay, Halevy noted that even if he had perfectly envisioned a September 11-style attack in advance, Tenet had virtually no chance of getting the US government to put into place the security precautions necessary to prevent it.

    19 March 2003 Invasion of Iraq
    In a way talking about the mistakes of Iraq Invasion deflects from who really did 9/11. Lots of play fighting ??? but maybe Halevy trying to sooth the ruffled feathers of Tenet HINT Halevy and Tenet, Bandar, Bush Administration, Schumer, Feinstein, Killary? all in on 9/11.

    George Tenet, Drunk in Bandar’s Pool, Screaming about Jews by Jeffrey Goldberg

    I just picked up Patrick Tyler’s forthcoming book, A World of Trouble, about America’s tortured relations with the Middle East, and the prologue contains this whopper of a scene, one that is quite devastating, if true: An enraged George Tenet, drunk on scotch, flailing about Prince Bandar’s Riyadh pool, screaming about the Bush Administration officials who were just then trying to pin the Iraq WMD fiasco on him

    A World of Trouble The White House and the Middle East – from the Cold War to the War on Terror by Patrick Tyler
