Many "dynamic" forces combined to cause collapse and subsequent events.
I have seen many use a single set or a few selected forces to support their pet theories on wtc collapse.
obviously not enough.
nope not by itself.
together? My opinion is yes all three forces combined together are what brought the buildings to point of collapse.
A while back in another 9/11 post a member posted a photo (not from the usual direction showing the cooler side) that clearly showed color intensity
trending to yellow/white indicating more heat than most acknowledge.
The aircraft impact swayed the buildings a substantial amount according to people that were inside at the time. We can all see the obvious damage to
the structure in photos, what can't be seem is damage to welds, plates, connections due to the motion causing a weakening of the unitary whole.
The structural design intended the core to carry the majority of the gravitational load while the perimeter columns provided lateral support for
windloads. All of the struture worked together as a unit spreading and transfering load as required. When the floor connections were severed the
perimeter had lost most of its abilty to withstand any lateral load outwards.
I find this photo quite interesting. It is used to make case for explosives but if one looks close at details it shows what I've refered to above.
If you look at the base of debris cloud you can see a whole section of perimeter columns pushed laterally outwards almost as a unit on both faces but
at slightly different elevations.
Further upwards one can see many large setions of perimeter columns separated and thrown by force of debris.
The photo has an arrow pointing to what is claimed is evidence of explosion, I believe what is being seen is either overpressure below collapsing
floorplates or the actual interior position of the collapsed floor plates.
The one thing most "pulverized concrete can't hold air" people forget is the fact that there was metal decking under the concrete that would
provide the "cap" long enough to develop the overpressure.
Yes this would give the appearence of an explosion however I believe that is a false and unrewarding road to go down when the dynamics all assembled
together explain the collapse without impractical, dubious, and hoop jumping processes needed to conspire an explosive theory.
To me the conspiracy lies in the shutdown and purging of Able-Danger findings on the 9/11 conspirators because of politically uncomfortable Chinese
proliferation data (LORAL?) that program developed. The Able Danger info presented the chance to find the plot out but the baby got thrown out with
the bath water.
While the "glamour" factor is high with the explosive theory, I come to realize that its more likely mundane political CYA that is the root
I also wonder how many gov,mt disinformation agents feed the "explosives" theory so that lookers will not look in the right place for the right
(one ficticious agent to another) Pssst, lets keep-em hung up on the collapse rather than why they were hit with planes in the first place, that'll
The truth lies elsewhere IMHO.
