The collapse of the Twin Towers played a huge psychological role in how the American people perceived 9/11. What really had me confused over the years is how the towers just crumbled to the ground like sandcastles.
The official explanation given said the burning jet fuel caused the building to weaken all over. Even in places where no jet fuel was present. Firefighters in and around the buildings say they heard explosions right before the buildings collapsed.
What is someone supposed to think when you see how fast the buildings came down, along with these firefighters saying what they experienced? Thanks to the makers of Loose Change, the following information only helps the theory that the towers were brought down in a controlled manner:
In February of 1991, a 38-story skyscraper in Philadelphia caught fire and burned for 18 hours across eight floors. It was once known as the fire of the century. It did not collapse. It burned until firefighters put it out.
In October, 2004, a 56-story skyscraper in Venezuela, built in 1976, burned for over 17 hours spreading across 26 floors. It did not collapse. It burned until firefighters put it out.
In February of 1975, a fire that started in an electrical closet on the 11th floor broke out between the ninth and the 14th floors of the North Tower. The fire then spread to six other floors. Even without a sprinkler system, fire department officials and building officials said there was no chance the World Trade Center would ever become a type of Towering Inferno. The fire was so bad, however, it eventually led to the installation of sprinkler systems. Still it did not collapse. it burned until firefighters put it out.
In May of 1975, 7 fires struck the twin towers. The South Tower had garbage fires between the 25th and 36th floor, and the North Tower had a fire on the 11th floor. They did not collapse. They burned until firefighters put them out.
The Twin Towers, 2 110-story skyscrapers burned for 56 minutes over eight floors and 103 minutes over five floors, before falling completely to the ground. The Twin Towers were made of 200,000 tons of steel and 425,000 cubic yards of concrete. The core of each tower was a rectangular pillar, 87 x 133 feet, comprised of 47 steel box columns ranging from 36 x 16 to 52 x 22 inches. The North Tower was completed in 1970, standing at 1368 feet tall, and the South Tower was completed in 1973, reaching 1362 feet tall, making them the tallest buildings in the world at the time. They were designed to withstand multiple impacts from a Boeing 707. A collision like this would result in only local damage which could not cause collapse or substantial damage.
Take a look at this. You mean to tell me that a plane hitting the top of these buildings caused them to collapse from underneath?
In September, 2001, the south tower of the World Trade Center collapses to the ground in approximately 10 seconds. 29 minutes later, the North Tower collapses in approximately 10 seconds. Later that evening, World Trade Center building 7, 47 stories tall, collapses to the ground in under seven seconds. The official explanation is that falling debris from the North Tower created a series of fires inside the building. According to history, if this is true, it would be the third steel frame skyscraper in history to completely collapse because of damage and fire. The first two would be the Twin Towers.
Were airplanes the cause of those buildings collapsing?
