Timothy McVeigh didn't seem to have any problem with using ammonium nitrate at all. Easy, at the time, to get ahold of large quantity.

I've been thinking about firing up a still.. You can make one, or you can buy one.. Lot's of info on here.. The only drawback is, I'd probably be dead within a week... grin

ah the Oklahoma bombing
its a good example to do a research on it - a serious research on Scapegoat
i forgot what happened to him, was he executed?

tomcatty: just chuck on some diesel or light a fire near it, job done, but don't sit on it, it
would blow your shlong to he Adriatic coast
you might want to do some more research on that!confused

tomcatty: From my man in Cairo.

CAIRO—The countdown to catastrophe in Beirut started six years ago when a troubled, Russian-leased cargo ship made an unscheduled stop at the city’s port.

The ship was trailed by debts, crewed by disgruntled sailors and dogged by a small hole in its hull that meant water had to be constantly pumped out. And it carried a volatile cargo: more than 2,000 tons of ammonium nitrate, a combustible material used to make fertilizers — and bombs — that was destined for Mozambique.

The ship, the Rhosus, never made it. Embroiled in a financial and diplomatic dispute, it was abandoned by the Russian businessman who had leased it. And the ammonium nitrate was transferred to a dockside warehouse in Beirut, where it would languish for years, until Tuesday, when Lebanese officials said it exploded, sending a shock wave that killed more than 130 people and wounded another 5,000.
Okay, the Lebanese knew what was there for years, and they also knew that it could be used for bombs, so it was explosive.
Then, why not take action for over 6 years, and now, when it exploded ask the whole world for help. Sorry, but are they retarded over there or what?

Today’s news has been dominated by the terrible explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. The blame for the explosion has been directed at 3,000 tons of ammonium nitrate that was being stored in a warehouse in Beirut’s port. What is ammonium nitrate, why can it explode, and what happens when it does? This graphic takes a look.

Ammonium nitrate’s major use is as a fertiliser – this accounts for around 78% of its use (by volume) worldwide. It’s a source of nitrogen, important for the growth of plants.

It’s also used in some explosive mixtures which are used for mining and quarrying. Mixed with fuel oil it’s known as ANFO (ammonium nitrate/fuel oil), which accounts for approximately 80% of the 2.7 billion kilograms of explosives used in North America every year. In these explosive mixtures, it acts as an oxidising agent, helping other materials burn.

In its pure form, ammonium nitrate isn’t usually explosive – in fact, it’s safe to handle. However, if it is contaminated with impurities, the risk of it detonating increases. Heating also poses a danger: ammonium nitrate decomposes at around 230°C, and can explode when heated to between 260–300°C if it’s confined.

The force of the ammonium nitrate explosion is provided by the rapid generation of gas as it breaks down. The primary reaction when it breaks down produces nitrogen, water vapour and oxygen.

This reaction isn’t the only one taking place, however. You might have wonder what caused the plume of smoke seen after the explosion in Beirut to have an orange-red colour. This is due to other reactions generating nitrogen dioxide. It’s not the only additional product: ammonia and nitrous oxide are amongst the others.
