Thermite probable in WTC collapse

This is pretty cool, I never really thought about it:

Jesus....Do a search on google for the Popular Mechanics article which debunks all these "myths" and read it...save yourself a lot of flack.

The aluminum in the building was only the decorative aluminum clading, the structure was all steel.

Did you even read the .pdf?


Thermite is made from ingredients readily available (aluminum, gymsum, rust, water, etc) in the building/airplane. He's not proposing any "gubment conspiracies" or any other shit like you make it seem.

BTW, your Popular Mechanics article mentions nothing about thermite.


Fuck. You guys are amazing.

BTW, here's a snip of what you missed:
  • Boeing 767 aircraft separately strike WTC 1 & 2 and flaming wreckage becomes
    lodged in the upper floors of each Tower.
  • Combustibles, such as office furniture, paper and plastic, start to burn, fuelled by at
    least 10,00 liters of kerosene, and the temperature in the impact zone begins to rise.
  • After about 30 minutes, the fires subside, but black smoke continues to pour out of both
    Towers showing that the fires are not “out”, but “smoldering”.
  • After about 40 minutes, parts of the airframe in WTC 2 approached the critical
    temperature range of 500 - 550 C where aluminum alloys starts to soften and melt.
  • At 50 minutes, molten aluminum forms and starts to flow from the airframe in WTC 2.
  • The molten aluminum re-ignites some of the smoldering fires and rapidly burns through
    other combustible materials that survived the initial conflagration. Molten aluminum also
    falls onto fractured concrete, gypsum and rusted steel surfaces inducing violent thermite
    explosions, dispersing globules of molten metal and igniting new fires.
  • The extreme heat generated by the molten aluminum rapidly weakens already damaged
    steel columns and trusses in the impact zone causing local slumping and partial collapse.
  • The remains of the semi-molten airframe fall to the floor below and mix with fresh
    combustible material, air, water, thermite reagents (crushed concrete, gypsum, rust), and
    sections of aluminum cladding from the Tower’s fa€ade, initiating more explosions.
  • This sequence of events is now repeated in a rapidly accelerating, and increasingly
    violent cascade of destruction. Gravity adds momentum to the downward acceleration of
    the mass of debris and WTC 2 collapses in less than 16 seconds.
  • The burning aluminum remaining at the end of the collapse glows brightly for a
    moment and illuminates the rising clouds of smoke and dust at ground zero.
  • About 25 minutes later, the temperature of the aircraft wreckage in WTC 1 reaches the
    critical 500 - 550 C range where molten aluminum starts to flow. The sequence of
    events observed in WTC 2 is repeated in WTC 1 and a second global collapse ensues

But they are saying the cladding was near 2,000,000 kg. That's no small amount. The airplanes themsevles also added tens of thousands more kg of Al.

I'm not going to bother reading anything labeled 9-11 myths because all of the "myths" that they base their circle jerk liberal assumptions and unexplained things on, are pure and utter bullshit.

Science = myth?

Chemistry = myth?

Did you even bother to read the article. It didn't suggest that thermites were planted it explained how the chemical reaction of the aluminum from the Aircraft when melted combined with water from water lines can cause an explosive reaction when it comes in contact with the concerete, that might have been seen by some as explosives going off in the building when in fact the collapse was a direct result of the aircraft and the affect the chemicals both present and foriegn( aircraft) combined to create the collapse. It was not a bomb theory by the way.

And you should read the article and save yourself some embarrasment. The first paragraph is only about 1%.

Be honest, you are simply too stupid to know how to read.

At least the thing is based on science instead of some ignorant Dukes of Hazzard watching stumpfuck thinking..."Hey, it looks like explosives going off so it must be a conspiracy..."
