I classify young people into two groups, those who are old enough to remember and those who aren't. I was a freshman in collage, I still get emotional talking about it.

When the first one hit I remember thinking "Well, the Empire State Building got T-boned by a B24 that was flying in the fog once".

I remember people lining up into the street at gas stations and it was a pain in the ass.

A major attack in an American city will happen again. If Iran gets really ballsy they might give one of their buddies a nuke to do it with once they have one to give away.

This is just asymmetrical Warfare in the era of American Supremacy.

Most of the country already has and the people that were directly affected are now blaming someone else.

The official story is horse shit. Those buildings were demolished using explosives. Buildings do not come down in free fall speed otherwise.
I hope I live long enough to see the people in our govt who did this executed.

As the buildings were coming down, the puffs of air you saw coming out the windows, those were explosions?

Yep, just like United flight 93 was shot down..and the original witnesses who said they saw fighter jets trailing it vanished and the news was scrubbed of it...and the fact there were multiple debris locations. I can kind of understand why that was changed...nobody in the government wants to admit responsibility for killing Americans to stop another attack..but regardless...we were denied the truth.

When a building is demolished they do not use enough explosives to just blow the building into bits. They use a relatively small amount of explosives to cause a structural failure and gravity does the rest. The 9/11 Towers coming down was a perfect illustration of a structural failure and gravity doing what gravity does looks like.

The World Trade Center was also the epicenter of hundreds of Corporations and we know corporations are evil. If we've been taught one thing by watching movies we all know that the bad guys headquarters always has a self-destruct system so you might be correct.

This whole argument falls apart when you realize that it would have been even easier just bomb the building and claim a terrorist set the bombs up. It's not like it hadn't already been attenpted.

But instead you're saying they literally installed demolishing equipment AND THEN FLEW A PLANE INTO IT...just to carry out a bombing. When they could have skipped the whole plane part in the first place

Anyone ever see what happens when a suicide jockey has crashed into a bridge, with steal beams and the rig bursts into flames? I'm guessing too AA flt. 77 and those on board never existed since it was a missile that hit the Pentagon?

Collapsed from massive amounts of structural damage caused by hundreds of thousands of pounds of the first Two Towers falling on it. If Giuliani hadn't said pull it there would have been First Responders still in there who would have died as well but his words have been twisted to mean detonate the explosives.

There are numerous examples in textbooks of bridges being damaged from a fuel truck striking them and bursting into flames. Typically the riveted joints get torn because of thermal expansion and steel at 900 degrees Fahrenheit becomes relatively plastic and easy to deform when subjected to massive amounts of stress.

When I worked at the Eaton Corporation I personally had to go out to as crash site to help the DPS investigate a crash of a fuel truck that struck a support column for a bridge. The bridge had sagged from its own weight and was nearly touching the ground, several of the large riveted joints had had the rivets sheard . There was nothing left of the truck except for the frame, the axles, the engine, differentials, and the transmission. I had to bust open the transmission to find out what gear it was in when it struck the bridge support and even though the fire was relatively low temperature there was thermal damage and distortion to the transmission that made it incredibly difficult to open up. Even the bolt heads on the shift bar housing had the corners rounded off from the heat.

Man, I'm watching the 9/11 documentaries on NatGeo and I can't help but wonder how something like this happened. Insane!
