Buildings don't collapse when hit by planes ?
Sure they do , take a look :
Steel and concrete-reinforced buildings won't collapse due to fires ?
Sure they will , here , take a look :

Upon further examination , I must conclude that the youtube video in my first post is obviously a fake .

like it or not
Structural steel collapsed in the Windsor , due to fire . Therefore , it is not unreasonable to say that structural steel in WTC collapsed due to fire .

Just goes to show that an airplane crashing into a building doesn't cause it to collapse, even one built in the 1930's.
THREE that were both built to modern building code should definitely have been able to withstand the impact of a jet, and the debris caused by the other two building "collapses"
If even only one of the buildings had of come down, I might have believed that it was JUST terrorism, but with ALL THREE collapsing, I just can't believe that modern day New York building code is that shoddy.
Oddly enough the Windsor Building wasn't hit by a plane nor heavy debris and had a different design from the towers.

I implore you to do your own research but I will touch upon this ever-so-slightly.
Oddly enough, the Windsor Tower lacked fireproofing on the upper floors yet still stood. On the other conspiracy hand, all THREE WTC towers had sufficient fireproofing yet all..............crumbled and are no more.
But you're right. Nothing to see here. Keep the cattle line movin'........................

They used a cheap spray-on fireproofing after the codes were set with a minimum level of fire-resistance level.
Asbestos in the WTC
The WTC Towers were built from 1968 to 1972. A slurry mixture of asbestos and cement was sprayed on as fireproofing material. But this practice was banned by the New York City Council in 1971. This halted the spraying, but not before hundreds of tons of the material had been applied. Some but not all of it was later removed in an abatement program.
Thus, the energetic nano-composite can be sprayed or
even “painted” onto surfaces, effectively forming an energetic
or even explosive paint. The red chips we found in the
WTC dust conform to their description of “thin films” of
“hybrid inorganic/organic energetic nanocomposite”. Indeed,
the descriptive terms “energetic coating” and “nice adherent
film” fit very well with our observations of the red-chips
which survived the WTC destruction.
