And your explanation (since you have one for everything it seems lol) for the presence of the metal thermite microspheres present in the dust and air?
Towers Weakened by Planes; Brought Down by Fire
WASHINGTON, D.C., MAY 1, 2002
Analysis by a team of 25 of the nation's leading structural and fire protection engineers suggests that the World Trade Center Towers could have remained standing indefinitely if fire had not overwhelmed the weakened structures, according to a report presented today at a hearing of the House Science Committee. That finding is significant, said W. Gene Corley, Ph.D., team lead for the ASCE/FEMA Building Performance Study Team, because extreme events of this type, resulting in such substantial damage, are generally not considered in building design, and the fact that these structures were able to successfully withstand such damage is noteworthy.
Only a handful of architects and engineers question the NIST Report, but they have never come up with an alternative. Although at first blush it may seem impressive that these people don't believe the NIST Report, remember that there are 123,000 members of ASCE(American Society of Civil Engineers) who do not question the NIST Report. There are also 80,000 members of AIA(American Institute of Architects) who do not question the NIST Report.
I don't have to explain anything to you...

Nope, NIST has claimed in their final report on trade center 7 that it would of took 9lbs of RDX to bring down building 7 undetected.
Now, you got it down to 9 lbs. Do you think you can cut it down another 2 lbs?
Just to let you know that i have encountered people posing as truthers posting the most ridicules things imaginable in order to discredit the Turth Movement.
Can I safely assume that you are a wolf in sheep's clothing?
There are many ways to do it, quite easily also when safety is foresaken, even without demolitions.
o give examples I would have to look over the structural drawings in detail to know what the easiest way would be. Otherwise I would be making educated guesses and given the topic and passion many have for this, don't want to go down that path here now without that info in front of me.
Columns are removed, replaced and relocated often enough for a variety of reasons but due to insurance and cost usually other alternatives are always considered.
Structural engineers can easily become specialized demolition experts for the discipline is the same, just with opposite goals. Any person familiar with this building including firefighters know where the weaknesses are and how to exploit them.
If I can get a good look at the structural details and some time I'll post again.
First of all, we warned the Taliban to turn over Osama bin Laden unconditionally, but the Taliban failed to do so and the rest is history.
We also know that the Taliban offered to hand bin Laden over to U.S. authorities if they could simply demonstrate his complicity with 911, back when all of this began.
It didn't happen, Bush rejected the plan, he never cared about catching bin Laden and he said as much; he cared about using the man's name and image to start a new round of the crusades and with this bloody idea, Bush had great success.
