another good post.

this theory, obviously cannot be proven, it also cannot be disproven..

Thanks  original.gif   As you say, these are only plausible theories I am suggesting that underlie all of the actual physical evidence we do have supporting controlled demolition.


Operation Northwoods was a 1962 plan by the US Department of Defense to cause acts of violence, blamed on Cuba, in order to generate U.S. public support for military action against the Cuban government. The plan called for various false flag actions, such as staged terrorist attacks and plane hijackings, on U.S. and Cuban soil.

1:And why exactly would “extensive drilling” of the structure be required?  


2:You don’t have to describe it so dramatically  laugh.gif  

3:Here, take a look at US Patent Application 20060266204 - a thermite charge which can be used for structural demolition.


4:Yes, I mentioned higher casualties and more damage by bringing down the structures.  Do understand the aim would not be to cause maximum devastation though; just enough.  If that’s still not good enough for you, there is another reason - the cost of deconstruction/rebuild of the Towers, required at some point in the future due to asbestos problems, was estimated to be in the double-digit billions. By completely removing the Towers in a terrorist attack, that is a quick solution with the insurance companies covering most of the cost.



1: The demo points in any building are not immediatly accessible for demo charges. It would still require a long time to "wire" a building for a controlled demolition even if the charges were wireless. I would say at best 6 months to wire the 3 buildings supposedly brought down by controlled demo. That's assuming several hundred people, and your hypothetical demo charge making it easier.
2: It's the drama that makes these discussions fun!  laugh.gif
3: Just because it's patented doesn't mean it's viable. Hasn't someone patented a time machine?
4: How do you define "just enough". Why would the aim not be maximum destruction? The higher the body count = higher american outrage = more the government could have gotten away with. Asbestos removal would not require the buildings to be demolished and rebuilt. Although it would be expensive to remove the asbestos in buildings that size.

I'm just saying.

Q24 on Nov 14 2008, 04:23 AM, said:

I agree, ‘dropping’ explosive charges ‘here and there’ would never do – thus why I said, “fixed to the structure at predetermined points”.  By prefabricated I mean assembly or wiring of the charges would not be carried out on site.  The units would be preassembled ready to be placed and ensure a more efficient setup.  There may not be prefabricated charges off the shelf, I don’t really know, but I am certain the demolition team could carry out this work before entering the buildings.



You still appear to be thinking along the lines of a conventional demolition setup.  Perhaps the fire-proofing would require removal and perhaps not (I doubt it would be rated against a 2,500oC thermite reaction anyway).  And why exactly would “extensive drilling” of the structure be required?  Wiring together of the charges could prove difficult, thus why I suggested, “units which worked independently of one another with a remote detonation system”.


And you are postulating demolition and detonation systems which don't presently exist.  If they did, they be developed and used by professionals who make a living bringing down structures using explosives.

“It looks like, therefore it is likely to be so”, would be more accurate.  This certainly is better than your proposed alternative of disbelieving our own eyes in favour of what we are told or disregarding what we plainly see for what we want to believe.

The problem is that your eyes tell you different things from what my eyes tell me, and I have been earning my living for decades from using my eyes to tell me what is happening in engineering situations.

Quote

I haven’t looked in any detail at the NIST WTC7 modelling and, after the complete farce of their WTC1 and WTC2 impact models which relied on scenarios clearly outside of reality, I’m not going to waste my time.  If you think some government employed engineers tweaking their computer models to give the results demanded of them somehow supports your idea, then so be it.

To use your technique: "We have been over all of the modelling arguments in detail previously.  I can't go on a never-ending merry-go-round with you because you refuse to retain information from previous discussions."  Anyone can use this sort of get-out to avoid answering the counters to their arguments.  Just because you couldn't address these arguments in an earlier thread doesn't mean that you can ignore them now.

Your implication that the engineers who have modelled the collapse are all government-employed is a case in point.  Once again, you choose to ignore the long list of outside experts brought in to aid NIST in their investigation.  Once again, you claim that the simulations are invalid from a position of complete ignorance of how these methods are used in real engineering situations.  Once again, you claim that they simulations are "outside of reality" while ignoring key physical evidence that the simulations predict and your demolition theories cannot, ie the bowing of the perimeter columns in the towers and the penthouse behaviour of WTC7.

I guess it still bewilders some of you that people outside America are capable of doing such things. I mean, these people live in caves! And they have weird religious beliefs! SPOOOOOOKY!

Sorry, but 9/11/01 was a terrorist attack. All these people weren't a victim of a great conspiracy, you won't be bringing the perpetrators to justice seeing as they're already dead and people living in third world countries aren't as stupid as you think they are.

I can't believe people are still talking about thermite.  It just doesn't work the way people here want it to.

The inside floors of the building are collapsing down on top of eachother before the outside collapses down. Making it look like an explosion is happening on the lower levels.
It is simply the inside collapsing before the outside. The impact of the inside floors hitting one another is the flash you see. (the electrical system exploding etc.)

Why would you say 6 months with several hundred people???  I think all three buildings could easily be set-up well within a month with only 12 people, assuming approximately 200 charges in each of the Towers and 100 in WTC7.  The 12 people act in 6 two man teams and can each install say 4 charges per shift/day.  That means each day up to 24 charges can be set.  So to set the required approximately 500 charges would take 21 days.

I don’t know about a time machine  laugh.gif  but I was just linking to the thermite demolition patent to show that far from being some complex unknown technology, the concept is actually quite simple.

You have to use your own judgement of what “enough” would be, though I think on its own the removal of such landmark buildings and thousands of deaths meets the requirement.  Regarding the asbestos removal, whether it was going to cost millions or billions, it’s something that Larry Silverstein does not have to worry about anymore.

No one said this type of thermite demolition charge was the best way to bring a building down – just one of many options.  We have to understand the WTC demolitions were not conventional for good reason.

200 charges for a 100 story building? I doubt that would be enough. Thats 2 charges per floor (less actually because the twin towers were over 100 stories).

floors do not fly through other floors like the are not there.  and it got lighter the higher it went, the strongest of the building was in the loweer parts of the building.  i cant believe this is still an unresolved argument, by now the whole world should know it was demolition without question.  must be nice on the part of the debunkers that they got rid of all the evidence at the crime scene so fast and also didnt do an investigation till a whopping two years later and even that was whitewashed.  but does that make you question the event?   nope.

I am sorry but you are wrong. The debris is falling inside the building quicker than the outside is collapsing. The debris is probably 5 stories down before you see the outside collapse. The middle of the floors give in and all that falls down to the next floor causing the impact explosions you see.
Those sparks you see are computers, light fixtures, office equipment, etc exploding from the debris from the inside.
I don't see why this is so hard to grasp.

What is this supposed to demonstrate?  Large pieces of metal need to be cut up before they can be transported elsewhere, so what?  If you look closely at the cut, you can see where the slag from the cutting torch has run down the column.

What's a thermal linear cutting charge, anyway?
