no accident when stockpiles in Murmansk exploded. Laugh if you must, but I am not laughing and it would have been easy for US Navy SEALS or British Special Boat Service Operatives to have committed sabotage with the help of Russian citizens.

Now in the space of one month, four enormous explosions have happened in Russia and China, one of the explosions in China was so huge the Chinese government had to seed the clouds to put the fire out!
Just today an apparent crack in an underwater pipeline in Moscow created a massive fire which sent a pillar of smoke hundreds of meters into the air.
A massive fire erupted on the Moscow River in southeastern Moscow, not far from the site of an oil refinery on Tuesday, creating a gigantic column of smoke seen as far as Red Square, some 15 kilometers away.
Rescue workers battled the flame for over an hour, a source in Moscow's emergency services told RIA Novosti.
It is not clear what exactly caused the fire, although a representative of the Transneft oil pipeline company told RIA Novosti that an accident on its pipeline had occurred and it stopped pumping oil products through it.
According to rescue workers, the oil fire began after a nearby grass fire reached the site of the spill. Some residents reported hearing an explosion prior to the fire, and rescue services told residents to stay indoors.
Chinese authorities "seed the clouds" to make rain to help put out massive chemical fire!
A giant explosion of a chemical tank at Rizhao Port last month saw local authorities seed the clouds in the area to make it rain and help douse the dangerous inferno.
The tank, containing liquid hydrogen, caught fire in the Lanbei part of the port.
The city sent more than 50 fire engines and about 300 firemen to put out the fire.
As of 4.30pm local time, the fire had still not been put out.
Citizens living near the explosion site have been evacuated while Rizhao Steel, which is also near the site, has suspended operation and evacuated workers.
China: Massive Explosion Rocks Chinese Port city of Tianjin: Many feared dead
At least 44 people are now known to have died, and more than 500 injured, following two major explosions in China's northern city of Tianjin.
Twelve firefighters were among the dead, China's official Xinhua news agency said as it reported a doubling of the death toll.
Two blasts happened in a warehouse storing "dangerous and chemical goods" in the port city of the area.
A huge fireball lit up the sky, and nearby buildings have collapsed. President Xi Jinping has urged "all-out efforts" to rescue victims and contain the fire, Xinhua state news agency said.
The first explosion at about 23:30 local time (15:30 GMT) on Wednesday was followed by another, more powerful blast, seconds later.
Shockwaves were felt several kilometres away.
The China Earthquake Networks Centre said the magnitude of the first explosion was the equivalent of detonating three tonnes of TNT, while the second was the equivalent of 21 tonnes.
Further blasts were subsequently triggered nearby, Xinhua said.

Industrial accidents are nothing new, and a brief search will reveal some years have seen far more and worse than this.Paranoid much?
13 August 2015 at 17:40
I am a retired professional firefighter in the US. Chinese firefighters get far less training, poor equipment and little respect for the job they do. Most (like 90%) are military and are between 18-21 years old, working 3 years on and scant holidays off. Not your typical USA firefighter.
My heart goes out to those 12 (or who knows how many more) firefighters that lost their lives trying to put out fires that they sure don't have enough water to put out. Likewise, the death toll for all involved will go up much higher after they count all the bodies not previously reported.
13 August 2015 at 20:53
the question is how did the firefighters lose their lives AFTER the explosion happened? the reaction time would have been several minutes AFTER the explosion, unless there was a fire in that zone BEFORE the explosion. the Chinese government is not telling the entire story. Was there any radiation found at the site?
