Because there is no precedence for such an event, because steel framed building do not collapse that way from fire. They had nothing to base such a
If they reported other buildings collapsed before they did, then whoever was in charge of press releases screwed up big time eh?
Once again, only in your world does it happen that if someone predicts something unprecidented happening, and it does, all of a sudden, it must mean
it was all staged and planned cause its never happened before.. Such an odd world you live in.
Firefighters are trained, TRAINED, in observing building and making educated guesses as to the stability of a building. It does not matter if it is a
ramshakle outhouse on fire or a 100 story superhighrise, if it is showing signs of severe structural integrity loss, then it is safe to say the
building is in danger of collapse. When firefighters arrive on scene to a warehouse fire and the roof has collapsed, chances are there will be more
collapses and they steer clear of the building. That way when it does fall, they are safe. If a building is showing signs of imminent collapse, they
know it. Just because you do not see it in grainy distance videos, does not mean it did not happen. You have been shown HUNDREDS of accounts,
pictures, and video of damage and fire done to the WTC7. You refuse to acknowledge any of it because it does not feed into your delusion. Sad
What you need to know is that firefighters are not morons nor are they ignorant. When they see a building showing obvious signs of structural damage
and potential failure, they will treat it as such. To them it doesnt matter, if its showing signs, heads up, it may fall. Unfortunately for you, in
real life, just because something has not happened yet, does not mean it will never happen, or is impossible. I'm pretty sure you would have been
one of the designers of the Titanic, assuring everyone how unsinkable it is because no iceberg has ever sunk such a large ship before. Afterwards,
youd be the one claiming a conspiracy that it was sunk intentionally, because ice can never sink a ship of steel.
Also you keep throwing around "in its footprint" as if it means something. Well which way is a building suppose to fall? Up? How exactly did it
fall in its footprint if it destroyed a building behind it and damaged structures next to it, oh, and fell across a street in front of it? When a
building collapses, it goes down. You do know the laws of gravity? The ones you tout so much and claim so knowledge of? With gravity, objects fall
down. When a building experiences structural failure, it goes down. The structure of WTC7 with its ConEd substation at the base is what facilitated
the collapse as it happened. That is why it fell "down". When I drop an apple, it will fall straight down. Depending on how a building is built
is how it may collapse.
