2. The WTC towers were built to withstand an impact by an airliner .
When the planes were built they were designed to withstand a full speed impact from the largest commercial jet flying. It's been thirty years.
bigger planes, larger fuel tanks, faster speeds. None of which, were taken into consideration back then.
3. The possibility of an airline hitting a building is not new. In fact the US air force are trained for such eventualities. What happened to all
and what was the air force supposed to do? shoot the planes down over new york city and dc? no doubt the gov't and the faa were caught off guard.
no doubt nobody thought this was a possibility until the first plane hit. at that point there wasn't much time left to deal with the other 4 planes,
especially since two were flying over major populated areas. I do believe the last plane was shot down. only part of any of this 9/11 conspiracy I
4. The planes hit WTC 1, WTC 2 and the Pentagon hours apart. How could there be a complete security and systems meltdown? After, one plane diverts
from it's course and then flies unobstructed for 45 min, automatically alerting air traffic. How does a second plane do the same? And then a third
with the most defended structure in the world - The Pentagon.
4. The first plane hits WTC 1 and generates a fireball. Most of the jet fuel is spent in the initial fireball. Thereafter all that can be seen is
billowing smoke. The second plane hits WTC 2. Yet, WTC 2 falls at least 30 min before WTC 1. They both fall in exactly the same way.
In 1945 The Empire state building was struck by a B25 at 300 mph. It penetrated the 78th floor. An engine hurtled down an elevator shaft igniting a
furious fire in the basement. A few months later the damaged portion was repaired and it lived happily ever after. Why is it that the Empire state
building still stands?
they don't make em like they used to? The fireproof coating on the steel beams was damaged or destroyed in many areas. As mentioned above, the lack
of upkeep was a major factor. THe heat generated by the fireball was high enough to weaken the steel. Once weakened, the weight of the buidling was
enough of a catalyst to cause the steel to collapse. the top drops down and that weight pushes down on the remaining building with more force than
was ever anticipated. Buildings collapse.
5. WTC-7, which was not struck by any planes at all, nor was connected to the others, fell exactly the same way as WTC 1 and WTC 2.
The only gray area for me. Heat, flying debris etc. might have played a part. An example of how hot it was: There is another building across the
street that is supposed to be torn down. Reason? Mold. The mold grew as a result of the water damage. The water damage came when the sprinklers
were set off as a result of the heat from the buildings across the street. That's pretty hot.
6. The physics seem horribly wrong. The steel frame has a melting point of 1500 degrees(celsius) and the aircraft fuel burns below 500. Considering
that a huge percentage of fuel was consumed in the initial fireball and given that it is spent at 500 degrees. How does it managage to melt the
thousands of tons of steel?
You don't need thousands of tons of steel to melt. As was evidenced after the planes hit, the steel was still standing. Was it damaged? Wouldn't
you expect it to be after being hit with a plane that is much larger and was moving much faster and was carrying much more fuel than the building was
prepared to handle?
In fact some reports say the steel was vaporized into minute dust, as well as human bodies? How is that possible? Yet, what belies all belief, that
steel and human bodies can be vaporized, yet a passport of one of the purported terrorists remains undamanged enough to identify them.
Have you ever been in a fire wrecked building? I have. My parents' house burned to the ground one winter. I went there shortly after it happened.
The entire house was gone. Wood door still intact. Everything melted but there was a bicycle frame, with wheels intact in the middle of the fire.
7. Finally, consider the dirty play on investigating the 9/11 attacks and the government refusal to.
It seems clear to me the government is lying. It's an inside job. Hitler did the same by staging an attack on the German parliment building and then
starting up fatherland security and wars with others. Bush has done exactly the same.
Standard I hate Bush line in almost every one of these conspiracy posts. How does Clinton play in the conspiracy? The WTC was attacked during his
terms. I've heard how Bush et al have been planning this for a long time. How does he do that when he is not president? If the two WTC attacks
were planned by a jackass from texas, while the current administration had his head in a fat intern's skirt, I'd say it would make Bush out to be
much smarter than he is and Clinton would turn out to be the biggest moron, do nothing individual to ever walk the face of this earth.
my two cents.
