I see, so the amount of explosives to take down the WTC towers would be so enormous, it would cast 238 TRILLION dollars?
Seriously, are you sure you didn't make some errors in your calculations?
Oh, but the amount of jet fuel carried in a 747 is enough to take down the towers?
WOW, sure seems to be a major mis-match with your argument.
Of course you provide no links to back up your claims.
Here is what the real experts have to say.
Thermite temperatures can exceed 4,500 F cutting through steel like a knife through butter.
By the way, several crews were reported to be working at the WTC for months prior to 9/11. The buildings had even been shutdown for a weekend during
this period, which is something that had never happened before.
Here is some information on the inner core.
Research had established by mid-2005 that, low in the Towers, the sixteen core columns that bounded the long faces of the buildings' cores had
dimensions of 54 by 22 inches. The detailed drawings show that these columns maintained these dimensions through about the 66th floor.
If they placed thermite at points every forty feet they would need 25 points on each of the 16 columns to take them up to 1,000 feet. This means they
would have had to set up 400 thermite explosion points. Depending on how long it would take to set up these charges, it doesn't seem all that
unfeasible. Six teams of two men each team, it they could set these thermite charges in two hours, would take about 120 hours to set up the whole
I imagine they would design a sling they could wrap around the columns at the most accessible points, probably would not need to fit that tight in
order to allow oxygen into the process. The slings would probably be around 15 feet long, and set at an angle. These won't be explosions, but very
high speed burns at extremely high temperatures. Very stable stuff, that would take a considerable amount of heat to ignite, like solid fueled rocket
