Trump just said in a press conference that his generals believe it to be an attack of sort. Make what you will of that.
It's just politics and posturing. Unknown to us, by saying that, it will no doubt serve to further an agenda that will improve that party's position for a variety of things.

Lower deaths per case figures than Europe
More tests per head than anyone else
- He may be an arse but he did have some points.
And yet the highest deaths per capita in the western world.

Plus you we’re convinced some months back that they’d be able to track and trace weren’t you?

If it was an attack then you would see the missile come in, if it was a bomb it would be too much of a coincidence to have a large fire and just the same place a bomb and it would have to be a bloody big car bomb to do that.

There is no need for a bomb, the bomb is already there.

With the chemical involved you would just need an ignition source and by the sounds of it the ammonium nitrate was probably mixed with oil which is the ignition source (normal but strictly controlled and probably why it was in that warehouse).

All it takes then is a fire that spreads to the storage area, the oil would ignite and then the ammonium nitrate is your catalyst.

As much as it could of been a car bomb resulting in a fire, it could also of been stupid kids starting a fire, who knows.
