  • WTC1,2&7 collapse questions.

    I've noticed that many sites all around cyberspace claim that WTC1,2,7 were brought down by bombs/demolition charges. Does anyone here agree ?

    Is there any validity to claims that many NYFD firemen making claims they heard bombs exploding before the collapses ?

    I have no intention of flaming the forum or such, but many others claim that many NYFD firemen have been gagged about talking anything WTC related so I thought I'd directly come to this forum and ask... Is this true.

    Any other opinions are also welcome from a professional perspective.

    Sincerely,

    John

    Let me spell out for you....

    It's all nothing but conspiracy theory

    Bulls***!

      You need to arm yourself with facts instead of conspiracy theories. Go to www.nist.gov and read the official investigation report on the collapse.

      7 collapsed hours after 1 & 2. I was there when 7 collapsed. No explosions. No bombs.

      Let it be clear: I am not a FDNY MOS.

        The conspiracy websites are pretty amusing to read. The combination of selective use of facts, invented facts, and pre-determined conclusions is apparent regardless of which "theory" you read. I look at it this way-A former U.S. president could not keep a sexual liason with an intern a secret. Do you really think anyone could keep fake moon landings, UFO's, aliens on ice, bombs in WTC and any other outlandish claim a secret if they were true?

        Of course, I could be a government operative with an assignment to derail discussion to keep the true story from getting out...

            I also believe in Santa-Tooth Fairy-Wicked Witch of the West-if you pull a Funny Face in the Wind it will stay like it-forever. OJ is innocent-Michael Jackson is not weird-just normal like me and you. Errol Flynn saved Burma on his own. Clinton did not have a sexual relationship with Monica--just parked a certain piece of his anatomy in a dental zone. Watergate did not happen

              Here is one that did happen pretty interesting

              Never mind. It's not related to the discussion. Sorry.

                  Those conspiracy theories led me to this site; I was doing research about the WTC fires for a paper and all I could find elsewhere on the internet was this conspiracy stuff. All you need to remember is this: fire brought them down, there was no need for explosives. Fire weakens steel, if it didn't they would not put fireproofing on steel. The people making these theories are not building engineers, all engineers agree fire/impact made the towers fall. And for reports of explosions, I am sure in a situation like that there are going to be loud sounds that may sound like explosions. Large pieces of falling debris for example.

                    The only issue I see with the collapse by fire official story is the time of collapse of all 3 buildings. They ALL fell at near free fall speed ... whereas the laws of physics regarding momentum and structural mass resistance would show the collapse should have been slower and/or even partial.

                    Also Silverstein(owner of WTC's) stated in a documentary in 2002 that they 'pulled it' and watched WTC7 fall in the same context as demolition. And again WTC collapsed at free fall speed which could only happen if ALL support superstructures failed at the exact same time.

                    Why all the secrecy behind releasing all the confiscated Pentagon videos of the 'crash' ?

                    The secrecy only breeds further conspiracy theories.

                      High heat from burning Jet A fuel and combustible furnishings weakened the structural steel over a period of time. Fireproof coatings came off on impact.

                      Structural steel is not designed to handle impact loads, such as one floor collapsing on another.

                      You want to believe in conspiracy theories... that is your perogative.

                        This is what happened. Brother and sisters died that day in a heroic way. Someone died for us 2005 years ago and for most of us we remember why!! Our brothers and sisters died that day 09/11/01 for the people of New York City. Did we ever get a head count of how many lives that was saved that day???

                        Think about it love you all and be safe.

                          No. Morons like you breed conspiracy theories.

                            Ask a professionalbuilding engineer, the forces acting on the building were far greater than what it was designed for, something like 30 times greater minimum iirc, nothing was going to slow the building down. Dont listen to the conspiracy nuts, I have seen these same arguments, they are crap & they are sick and insulting to those that died, IMHO.

                              A couple of sources about buildings

                              Two books have been re-issued in paperback by Mario Salvadori and are available on amazon.com: Why buildings stand up and Why Buildings fall down. Mario was a professor at Columbia, worked on the Manhattan Project, was a real curmudgeon, and really knew his stuff; and maybe it's better to learn about how buildings are constructed than wallow in conspiracy theories. Unfortunately he died at age 90 in 1997, so the section about September 11 in Why Buildings fall down was not written by him.

                              Any explosions heard prior could have been any of the following: pressurized cannisters/hydraulic systems/collapsing floors/molten steel/falling souls/etc.etc.

                              Anyone who attacks fires needs to know the potentialities of each building...which is why FDs everywhere have maps of major/commercial buildings in their coverage areas to study and use at the command site.

                              WTC7 simply burned to the ground; WTC1 and 2 were ignited by thousands of gallons of jet fuel.
