Fertilizer plant explosion kills people in Texas
 
A massive explosion has rocked a fertilizer plant near Waco, Texas. Dozens are feared dead and at least were 100 injured in the disaster. Rescuers have to deal with toxic fumes contaminating the neighborhood.

Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? Now you know how drone victims feel, amerifats.

Enjoy your trolling. I hope you are at least because you certainly aren't accomplishing anything with your mindless ranting.

We only kill those people because they deserve it.

I'm sure all the civilian murders you've committed have been justified. I mean they're just brown people, nobody likes them, right?

Then when he was asked by another Twitter user whether he was blaming Muslims for the attack, Mr Rush responded: “Yes, they’re evil. Let’s kill them all.”

This is the true rotten face of America.

You're either with us or against us. Don't support terrorists, you won't have to worry about getting droned.

Toff April 18th, 2013 15:28

Its a war, people die in wars. Don't hang around people who want to kill us and you won't be killed when we take them out.

ChienAboyeur April 18th, 2013 15:58

To be translated as:
"if we happen to kill you, it means you hang with people who want to kill us"

One hundred per cent self fulfilling prediction.

Toff April 18th, 2013 16:07

I'm fine with that translation.

I spent a few years in the military (Air Force) and spent some time in the Middle East. I can tell you with certainty that we put forth a great amount of effort to not kill anyone who is not a terrorist. Easily much more effort than the terrorists do who regularly kill innocent people even in their own countries.

So, we've taken an industrial accident and turned it into an anti-American rant? Wow, pretty sure I am a better troll than our new friend. I think I'm with Coaster—decline of the Codex.

Drithius April 18th, 2013 16:36

Bored trolls will be trolls. If you're that desperate for attention, seek a better outlet than a gaming site.

GhanBuriGhan April 18th, 2013 16:42

Oh Politics and Religion, shall I compare thee to a fest'ring sore?

zahratustra April 18th, 2013 16:59

Tragic accident for sure but I's surprised that fertilizer plant was allowed to operate so close to the residential area.

I'd be willing to bet the plant was there first. Take a look at the satellite photo at the bottom of the OP's link. The majority of the town is to the southwest (upwind). The plant would have been erected on the outskirts of town as it originally sat. Much of the land nearest the plant is then snapped up by low density public owners that tend to gravitate to the cheap, large, open areas of land that "donut" industrial sites—hospital, schools. That, in turn, pulls residential building in that direction and you end up with the suburb (too small to merit that term, but you get the idea) north of the hospital, which is still largely upwind of the plant. The last growth would probably be the "fill in" residential between the hospital and triage area.

Terrorists run on much less means.

What's the criterion to declare an anti-american rant?

So far, one poster wrote against Americans. Two others wrote in favour of Americans.

If there is ranting, it is done favourably to Americans.

Its hard to say. I know West as its smack dab between Dallas and Austin. I used to stop there coming home from school (The Kolaches at the 'Czech Stop' are fantastic). The town itself has had little to no growth in decades. It's too far from both Dallas and Waco to have had spill over growth from either (yet). More likely, IMO, the factory was originally built when regulations were far more lenient than they are now.

True, but they could still plant their bombs at a legitimate mililary target easy enough rather than intentionally targeting civilians. They're cowards.

txa1265 April 18th, 2013 19:08

Not funny at all, but amazing how fast attention shifts … my brother-in-law works at ExxonMobil in Beaumont, and they had a bad accident with more than a dozen people injured, some burned badly. That was big news until last night when it disappeared - for all but the impacted families and community.

It is really sad when these events happen.

blatantninja April 18th, 2013 19:16

Man, I hadn't heard about that, and I generally keep up with the news in Texas.
