Wow.....why would there be 5 million pounds of ammonium nitrate in a downtown warehouse in Beiruit?

https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/trump-says-beirut-explosion-attack-bomb-some-kind-after-briefed-generals


SNIP:
Lebanon's health ministry has raised the death toll to over 73 killed, including 3,700 wounded, after late afternoon a blast centered on Beirut's port unleashed a massive seismic shock and explosion that leveled an entire district of the city and was felt as far away as Cyprus in the Mediterranean.

Later in the evening Lebanon's Prime Minister announced that the explosions were caused by an estimated 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate left unsecured for 6 years in a warehouse. This came on the heels of a formal Israeli denial that it had anything to do with it, which also seemed be echoed by Hezbollah officials.

Keep this in mind:
Oklahoma City bombing:  2.25 tons
Beirut bombing:           2,750 tons
over 100 times larger.

Why have 2,750 tons of ammonia nitrate to begin with?

Fertilizer?  

Hard to find it in the USA because it is so dangerous.
