Sorry, but its the cleanup operation, and the picture shows that quite clearly. If you stand by your idea that its molten metal caused by thermite,
then you are trying to make the evidence fit the conclusion, and you know it.
Use common sense. You know its the cleaup, as there is no dust lingering around in the air, there are workers quite clearly standing there, and also
as i highlighted, they are cutting down the steel columns.. there are 4 missing, and there just happens to be 4 on the floor infront of it..
It wouldn't suprise me if this guy is cutting steel beams from that portion we see in the other picture;
i am using common sense, and my own eyes. i do not know it's the cleanup, and surprisingly, i don't like you calling me a liar.
i know it is highly unlikely it's the cleanup for the reasons i already stated.
what colour is the smoke?
where we actually see the guy in the basket, actually cutting where it makes sense to cut(ie. not starting at the topmost portion of the beam), the
smoke is sulfuric yellow. in the picture with the molten pool on the pile of debris, the smoke is white, and the shear volume of molten metal is far
greater than a cutting torch could account for.
in the picture where we see the two men standing, it also gives us a good size perspective, and if we say they are six feet tall, then the molten pool
atop the debris pile is at least six feet across. that is a LOT of heat.
you can disagree with me all you like, but please don't tell me i do know and what i don't know.
p.s. i've already had this discussion with 'common sense', the author of the logically challenged, 'debunking 911.com'.
your picture of the guy in the welding basket only clarifies the fact that his tiny shower of sparks, with a huge yellow plume, are NOT what we are
seeing in the picture with what could be TONS of molten metal flowing.
i can't remember what the name for this particular logical fallacy you are embracing is, but it basically goes... (a) is like (b), and (a) is like
(c) in other ways, therefore, (b)=(c). in case we need more clarification, let's plug in some nouns...
a is cats
b is dogs (like (a) because of fur, four legs, teeth, carnivore)
c is lizards (slit pupils, four legs, tail)
so, once again, what you say, 'i know', i definitely don't know, and stand by my original contention that what we see in this picture is not a part
of the clean-up, but part of the aftermath.
i don't know if it's thermite, but i do know that no torch is going to produce that volume of molten metal.
