Conspiracy Theories Again
It is truly sad the amount of time that must be spent attacking the illogicality of conspiracy theories. However they keep popping up so I feel that time must be spent. Because when a lie is believed the truth becomes a sacrifice. Without truth we have no hope to go beyond this system of persecution that we are all victims of. I say we are all victims of, because I truly doubt that anyone worth nine figures or more is reading my writings.
Let’s start with the missile theory and the Pentagon. People claim that a missile was fired from a US Air Force plane or maybe that it was a cruise missile fired at the Pentagon. Now explain to me why this would be done first? People already got to see a plane crash into the Twin Towers live on television. It was being replayed again, again and again. Why did they need a second attack against the pentagon? Also explain to me if many people believe that the planes were under remote control that hit the Twin Towers, why were not planes under remote control used against the pentagon? As for there being no aircraft wreckage taken from the pentagon, there were no obvious pieces taken from the Twin Towers. Planes are built to be as light as possible, because you are fighting powerful forces of gravity. Planes, generally speaking disintegrate upon impact, because there is no safe way to fall to the earth at 600 plus miles per hour. Think of the crash site in Pennsylvania, did you see giant sections of plane standing there? The pieces were scattered over a large area. So large in fact, if you want a conspiracy, think about the air force shooting that one down and afraid to admit they did it to this day. Especially since the black box and cellular conversations showed the people chose to fight because they believed they were going to die anyways. A plane did hit the pentagon, the wings folded in on itself and in the core of the impact (hidden by the smoke) the majority of the plane disintegrated. As for the pretty pictures that show a computer or window undamaged. If we had one hundred planes and one hundred pentagons, it is possible that we could have one hundred different results, because fire and explosions do not act according to what we consider logical.
World Trade Center. Now this is going to be interesting to attack, because people (Alex Jones) are combining so much nonsense in this one section that even if one seemed possible, the combination of so much bullshit just makes the overall possibility ridiculous. Remote control planes? Now in itself I think you could argue that it is possible to use a remote control plane to hit the towers. I would also have to agree that with the complexities of aerial traffic that a remote controlled plane would have about as much chance of hitting its target as a poorly trained person would with little experience flying such an aircraft. However when you combine it with the theory that explosives were planted in the towers. Then you got the problem of first planting enough explosives in the towers to make them crumble. I have been under the towers at night when I lived in NYC. Even at night there was a mass of activity at the towers. Garbage going out, cleaning being done, supplies being brought in. Well in this confusion could not explosives been brought in and planted? Not really. The amount of explosives needed would be such an amount that bringing them in and planting them would attract attention. You would also have to use wireless communications since to leave wires everywhere would just risk attracting more attention. Using wireless detonators in NYC is an extremely dangerous action. Think of when you drive through a blasting area, you see signs that say, “turn off cell phones and two way radios.” Now being the patriot I am, I am always talking on my cell or two way radio when I drive through such a zone. The odds of causing such an explosion is very minor, however the more activity in the area, the greater the risk becomes. NYC has a great amount of wireless activity. Computer networks, cellular communications, two way radio communications, televisions, radio, etc… I would have to say that NYC would be one of the last places you could safely turn on wireless detonators. Timed detonators would have been even a worse idea. This being what if there was some problems with one of the planes? Now you have explosions taking place in a tower that was never hit!
There are also two more theories that need to be debunked. First is the theory that jet fuel does not burn hot enough to melt the steel support beams. I will agree with this. Jet fuel cannot melt the steel support beams. However the beams were not needed to be melted! They only needed to get hot enough so the weight that was supported by them could no longer be done. Thus gravity pulled the towers down. As the beams in the center of the impact area buckled, the weight above came crashing down. Next we got he video that those college kids put together comparing implosion buildings with what happened to the towers. One of the main points everyone keeps repeating is the bursting of windows a few floors below collapse points like a planned implosion. To understand why this happens is simple enough when you take in account the construction and design of the towers. Now I am sure that an engineer or architect could explain this a hell of a lot better then I will. However from the limited knowledge I have I will try my best. When you build up, you need support from below, to help support the weight above. This is why the most common first structures that towered into the sky were pyramids. The provide enough base support to support the weight above them. However when you are dealing with commercial properties, if you build too high you end up with two problems. First is transporting people up the floors, because elevator space takes up rental space. The other is the fact that support is needed for the weight above. Now you have to remember that the towers used to be the tallest building in existence, and the way they overcame this problem was ingenious for the time. The elevator problem was dealt with in stages. You would go to one stage then have to take another elevator to another stage to thus get to your floor. The support problem was dealt with in a way that proved very effective. Instead of the entire structure being needed for support. The main support was the outside of the building itself. Almost like a house, you can tear down a wall inside your house to make a room bigger. Because the main support is the outer walls. Well thanks to modern steel this was able to be accomplished on the towers with a minimal of support needed inside of the outer core. So as the towers fell, it was the inner part that collapsed first, because there was not as much support on the inside. As all of this debris fell on the inside of each tower there was a natural tendency with each floor hit to cause an impact and thus force debris out through windows that were busted.
Finally building seven. Now you may have me on this one, however I will take a guess. Now everyone has heard of what became known as the bathtub. The massive concrete structure that supported the weight of the towers underneath and provided a massive basement for parking and shipping receiving activity. Now when did building seven collapse? If it collapsed after the towers did, and it was above the bathtub, it is logical that so much damage was done below the surface that gravity did its job and brought down the building that could no longer support its own weight.
I have to wonder would there be so many illogical theories made up if this happened to a popular leader? I do not believe so. Even though Hitler and the Nazis were most likely responsible for the Reichstag fire, there was very little doubt given to the story that was put out for the population.
Now was Bush and the USA government responsible for the Twin Towers tragedy. Yes, without a doubt. Bush was responsible, Clinton was responsible, Bush Sr. was responsible, Reagan was responsible, Carter was responsible, etc… The actions of the USA government to protect the economic investments of the richest citizens at the expense of the local peoples has caused such hatred and desire for revenge that it has fed the fire that led to Osama Bin Laden’s popularity and organization. However to admit this would mean that the people would have to face the fact that they are not the good guys they want to believe they are. The masses do not realize that they are being manipulated by a few people in power. The actions of those few who desire only more wealth than they need and more power than they deserve does not affect an entire people. Even the Germans were able to grow past the Nazis and rebuild not only their nation, but their reputation! Only by bringing down the upper class that uses the rest of the people as mere pawns will the people be able to gain some sort of redemption.
As for Bush and his administration. If it can be proved that they knew about the attack (even though not the scope of it) in advance and allowed it to happen just to further their agenda and control over the population. That is about as close to direct responsibility as I believe you can get when attempting to compare it to planting the bombs that brought the towers down themselves. That is of course unless you are willing to face the fact that every action (by the government) that has affected people adversely is another bomb waiting to explode.
