Waco explosion

10 posts in this topic

More trouble in America. Huge explosion at a fertilizer plant near Waco. Was felt 60 miles away.

Comes after Boston and Ricin.

But is not linked.

 

The snap verdict would be that poor health and safety kills more people than terrorism.

Looks like around 70 are thought to have been killed, including first responder services who attended the original blaze which preceded the explosion.  What a terrible tragedy that clearly could have been avoided with a degree of responsibility by the company concerned.

Or enforced regulations.  Of the red-tape, elf n safety kind that the media get so het up by.

 

But probably best to wait and see before speculating further.

Imagine the shockwaves that will go through the British press when they get wind of the fact that literally THOUSANDS of Americans die from natural causes EVERY DAY.

There won't be time for any more news.

You as well, huh?

 

The wall to wall coverage does seem ... a bit odd.

The Belgian news is just as bad, sadly.

The day of the Boston bombing, the enormous earthquake that killed 40+ in Iran just about made it as a news-in-brief.

Did the earthquake have any good footage? 24hr news needs live, English speaking reports, preferably with good pictures. West, Tx gets coverage due to being a big bang, being a few days after Boston and being near Waco.

Bombs in Iraq are boring and nothing new.
