I like everything you stated, but as a union sheet metal worker, I put a lot of fire dampers/fire&smoke dampers in firewalls.

The exterior wall of the building would not be firewall rated as there is no structure outside it.

Stairwells, hallways elevator shafts yes fire rated but not the outside walls.

In case you didn't know, Dubai is "home of the elite". It's where TPTB have invested YOUR tax paying dollars.

Oh I knew, I invested in Dubai some years ago.

Just have to wait for it to collapse neatly into it's own footprint. Hope they pull out the firemen in time.


Of course, the "truthers" don't actually want to consider common sense, reality, or actual truth, most of them just want to have their paranoid delusions supported by YouTube propaganda videos by the likes of Infowars.


Maybe, YOU should consider this:


[Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Newcastle, John Knapton] told BBC News Online: "The world trade centre was designed to withstand the impact of a Boeing 707, but that was unusual... we are trying to discover why they [ the towers ] collapsed and what needs doing to rebuild them."

"The buildings survived the impact and the explosion but not the fire, and that is the problem."
"The 35 tonnes of aviation fuel will have melted the steel... all that can be done is to place fire resistant material around the steel and delay the collapse by keeping the steel cool for longer."


Or maybe this:

Hyman Brown, a University of Colorado civil engineering professor and the Trade Center's construction manager [sic], speculated that flames fuelled by thousands of litres of aviation fuel melted steel supports.

"This building would have stood had a plane or a force caused by a plane smashed into it," he said. "But steel melts, and 90,850 litres of aviation fluid melted the steel. Nothing is designed or will be designed to withstand that fire."


"MELTED THE STEEL"? Fire can melt steel????? How do you people cook, IF "fire melts steel"? I've got a barbecue pit FULL of nails from the wood they were attached to. How come they didn't melt???

Blacksmith

Blacksmiths work by heating pieces of wrought iron or steel until the metal becomes soft enough for shaping with hand tools, such as a hammer, anvil and chisel. Heating generally takes place in a forge fueled by propane, natural gas, coal, charcoal, coke or oil.


I'm talking about fire melting steel. The LIE WE WERE TOLD ON 911, which led to the "war on terror", the "Patriot Act", Homeland Security, more surveillance and more restrictions.

Proving fire DOESN'T MELT STEEL, is reasonable doubt! Try to keep up with the crimes that were committed.

No. No claim was made that fire melted steel.

Sorry for going off topic.

You are right, fire cannot melt steel. Those I-beams are naturally grown but the problem was the I-beams used in the WTC were GMO.

C'mon, you know it's going to collapse.


It's funny how 9/11 agenda people always make comments or comparisons that make no sense logically.

Oh look a tall building on fire, it's exactly the same as the Towers..



At least you have the guts to confess.. That's worth something.

NVM, OFF TOPIC and there's no point debating with these people.

Hopefully everyone did get out of there in one piece.
