You mean the Lebanese government found it years ago, or someone found the source of the explosion on an abandoned vessel?
Choice 1.
Who is responsible?
The Lebanese government is now facing questions about why the explosive chemicals were stored at the port.

Lebanese authorities say the explosives originally entered Beirut’s port on board a ship bound for Georgia in 2013. Shiparrested.com, a shipping industry newsletter, said in 2015 said that the vessel, which was carrying 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate, was forced to dock in 2013 in Beirut due to technical problems. Its owners later abandoned it there. Local authorities transferred the explosives to a warehouse in the port and were meant to dispose of them safely, according to the newsletter, but they never did.

I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. Who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.

I ended up watching Reel Bad Arabs, a documentary on youtube instead of Delta Force on cable.
I feel pretty guilty now.

The Bronze Age Collapse.
Another one, with more detail and higher production value.

I like the passage from the first video:
As we get into the late Bronze Age, the region was in the midst of a chariot arms race. And then... the Sea Peoples came.

Unlike the Bronze age civilizations of Western Asia, the Sea Peoples fought on foot. Instead of using spearmen and archers to form a defensive shield for their chariots, the Sea People wielded longswords and javelins, and fought with an unmatched aggression.

I've seen the Sea Peoples described as skirmishers... but I don't think that quite covers it. A much better word I've seen used is

Runners.
Doesn't that just give you the mental image of 28 Days Later-style psychopaths? I'm imagining the Med civs would send out their chariots thinking they were about to fuck up these retards who didn't even have chariots, only to see crazed demons sprint out and drag the charioteers down and hack them apart with swords, drink their blood, and then charge en masse into a line of spears who are all shitting their pants.

Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.
