One thing that has been brought up and not addressed by coin is the fact there is record of office fires that were far worse then this one that did
not demolish the building.
There is one huge problem with this argument, It implies that all building fires must be the same and that is simply not true. WTC-7 had a very unique
design that meant it was venerable in the first place the details of this are outlined in the OP. Basically the only way this argument could ever hold
any merit was if you were to find a carbon copy of WTC-7 and subject it to the exact same stresses it was under on 9/11. Otherwise your argument can
Sure this was a "first" but it was also the first time that a building had another building collapse almost on top of it after being hit by a plane
then that very building burning uncontrollably for hours. The argument that "it was the first time" is meaningless unless you can prove foul play
which I have yet to see any evidence for that stands up to scrutiny.
What about WTC 6 then?
This is a prime example of what i am talking about above, you are essentially asking why did WTC-7 collapse where WTC-6 did not, again it is a unfair
comparison, WTC-6 was a 8 story building WTC-7 was 47 stories you quite simply just cannot compare the two as they are totally different.
Besides this is a picture of what WTC-6 looked like after the attacks.
As you can see there has been a huge partial collapse of the building its been gutted by fires and damage from the other falling buildings. This
building is just as catastrophically damaged really at the rest of them it had to be totally destroyed after this picture was taken.
And it is not alone look at the rest of them
Just look at WTC-3 the Marriott that was a 22 story building and look at all that was left of it.
WTC-5 is the same i have seen pictures of that building after the attack and it looks like a hollowed out shell, Fema actually found some similar
structural damage to WTC-5 as they did in WTC-7
As you can see in WTC-5 several of the steel columns and girders supporting the floor spans have collapsed, according to FEMA this was caused by fire.
Overall the argument of "well it never happened to any other building so it must have been explosives" is utter rubbish.
