"I bet you think hijackers didn't take down the world trade either?"
I am posting here today, as I am fed up of being label a conspiracy theorist and a nut.
Its just a damn shame I appear to live in a world of followers rather than free thinkers.

I always confront those sorts of statements with a simple question in return...
"How many WTC buildings collapsed?"
Most ignorant people knee-jerk a "two of course" or something similar. I then giggle and tell them about the third,
5 WTC suffered a large fire and a partial collapse of its steel structure. Other buildings destroyed include St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, Marriott World Trade Center (Marriott Hotel 3 WTC), South Plaza (4 WTC), and U.S. Customs (6 WTC). The World Financial Center buildings, 90 West Street, and 130 Cedar Street suffered fires. The Deutsche Bank Building, the Verizon Building, and World Financial Center 3 suffered impact damage from the towers' collapse, as did 90 West Street. One Liberty Plaza survived structurally intact but sustained surface damage including shattered windows. 30 West Broadway was damaged by the collapse of 7 WTC.
In a variation of the World War III theory, popular YouTube conspiracy vlogger DAHBOO77 — who specializes in speculative “bombshells!” on everything from Pope Francis to TB — has claimed the plane was intentionally diverted into east Ukraine, where it was then intentionally crashed or blown up by on-board explosives. According to this theory, Ukraine (or Russia, or the U.S., or anybody else), could then “claim” the aircraft was shot down and use it as an excuse for an invasion.
Dahboo’s primary evidence for this is a series of dashcam videos that show MH17 exploding on the ground, not in the air. (“How many movies, how many cartoons have you watched and seen a plane go down?” he demands, apparently assuming that cartoon plane-crashes always follow the laws of physics.) Aviation experts actually say the plane would explode on the ground if the missile hit it at any point besides the fuselage.
