I’ve seen this video before, and I’ve also seen several others on the History channels. The good news is that the falling of the towers was not a controlled demolition per se, that is to say that there is no evidence that decidedly proves a controlled demolition perpetrated by factions within the US government. I have done enough research to feel very confident in saying this.
My father is a mechanical engineer and I discussed this with him at length to get the details of the physics behind the fall inside my own head.
The fall looks like a controlled demolition because controlled demolitions are handled in much the same manner. Explosives are placed in order to is compromise the structural integrity of a building, sometimes on several floors sometimes only on one. The minimum of explosives is used, because the more bang you get the more mess and the less controlled the demolition is. (You can google any building demolition vids and see the similarity.)
The calculations on building demolitions are based on a simple principal of how much weight any given level is created to support. Each floor is only designed to handle the weight of the single floor above it, so on and so forth till you reach the top of the building (this does not include the founding structure of the building). This practicality makes it possible for taller buildings. As for demolition this means that all you have to do is damage the structural integrity of a single floor. After this the building will collapse under its own weight, like and accordion (my Dad referred to this as the pan cake effect). (Again, just google for some controlled demolition vids to see the effect)
Now in the case of the twin towers fall. You see that the buildings first collapse at the floor/floors where the planes hit. Then you see the ensuing accordian effect that seems like a controlled demoplition. What happened to create this effect? The structural integrity of the floors that the planes hit was compromised so much so that the floor/level collapsed. Now, the floor beneath the collapsed floor has to support the falling weight of the rest of the building. Of course the floor/s could not support the weight so the accordian fall began.
Note: Many have speculated as to what could have cause the steel to break or become compromised, the simple answer is that the steel was not meant to sustain the heat of a fire fueled by a payload of jet fuel from a 747 that is ready to fly across the continent, that is alot of fuel. Alot of heat and physical destruction, that was never meant to be handled by the steel of the world trade center towers, caused the steel to fail.
Now, some have also said that the simple fact that the building, or buildings, didn’t fall over like a timbered tree is proof of a demolition conspiracy. As I have explained above, this tree falling anology patently is not viable.
As much as one would like to believe that this horrible act could only be an inside job, that the madness of it all isn’t really all that mad, that it wasn’t just angry people doing horrible things. However, I cannot find any actual proof of this supposed demoliton and neither can I find a true motive for the US government. Yes the Bush administration (and friends) does/do use terror alerts and many contrivances to keep the people in check, but the sheer loss of gross national income and GDP (over time) from 9/11 vs the internally garnered income from defense contracts and war profiteering is not nearly enough to be an impotace for instigating the event. Bush did not create the event, he used it and still uses it. Some might postulate, if it were up to Bin Ladin, he would like to take back the events on 9/11 because it gave the US carte blanche to declare “WAR on Terrorism” and come on in to their home countries. Bin Laden and all his pals are in a heap of trouble and so is their cause. Bush may be sending our young soldiers off to die, but the terrorists are slowly losing support from an amazing amount of people who used to support their cause. Bin Ladin was even suprised that the buildings fell himself. Its an idea not a fact, much like the controlled demolition idea.
Many people want to make order out of the chaos, it makes them feel better, like believing in God. There is no evidence either way for the existance or non-existance of God, but people still believe because it helps them get through the day. Me I just can’t bring myself to take anything on faith. I need fact. There is no hard evidence that 9/11 was organized or perpetraited by elements within the US government. There is some speculation on both sides of the argument, but no evidence. No one will be bale to look at this instance rationally for centuries to come. Perhapse then we will know the truth (not contrive a belief), but even then I doubt evidence will support the “inside job” theory.
This is much like the JFK assassination. Many want to believe that it was a setup by the CIA or some other faction of our own government. But the truth is that there is no real evidence to support this theory. The government has admitted that there seems to have been some sort of conspiracy, and I agree. Too many bullets etc etc. The actual killing though was put together by a small group of militants who simply wanted to kill JFK. No order here, just chaos. Uncomfortable as it is.
I know it may be hard or seem unfair to think that life could just happen like this, but it does. There is no method to the madness of human nature’s need to destroy itself. Good people die for no reason every day. “Their in a better place.” just makes people feel better. That doesn’t make it true. Happenstance and oddities are not fact or a smoking gun, its just life in this creat accident of a world. That’s my 50p worth of knowledge on the subject.
Oh and BTW – “Good” and “Evil” – They don’t exist either. That’s my opinion based on a lack of evidence.
