We all saw the upper block topple to the side, didn't we? Every mind with a slight understanding of physics has to be boggled at this point.
More like tilted as it began to fall. Thats because unlike the other tower, that tower wasn't hit dead center, but at an oblique angle, punching out one corner of the building. Thats where the collapse initiated first. After the upper block of floors tilted it still fell pretty much straight down.
Not getting your application of Newtons law. What was defeated was the support of all the upper floors above the failure point. That enormous weight wasn't going to just hang there like the floating rocks in Avatar.

Politically incorrect perhaps but far from a hate thread.
One could equally state America did 9/11 as well, sounds more like collective punishment to me.
There would be less of a fuzz with "Zionists did 9/11".

Israel didn't do anything.

I might also add that fire will weaken steel structures to the point of collapse and does not need to melt steel. Let's take a look at what fire can do to steel.

The South Tower hit second fell first, LARGER load above impact area it was also struck CLOSER to the corner that's the cause of the tilt and due to the resistance of the undamaged steel on the other elevations that stopped the tilt and the colapse was vertical from that point.
Well then, looking at it logically, if the top block did somehow manage to arrest it lateral momentum or "tilt", then part of it was obviously overhanging the structure below and should have fallen to the ground more or less intact.

I find it hard to believe that Israel could be "100%" responsible. Isn't there a redacted file implicating Saudi in some aspects?
I would find it much easier to swallow if it was a group of very powerful people across 3 governments, US/Israel/Saudi Arabia, and more than likely a lot of 'useful idiots' people that thought they were helping with a legitimate US interest operation or action, and possible vice versa on other sides as well.
