LOL what a dumbass. If the only problem with WTC7 was fire then why weren't the firemen in the building trying to put out the fire?

WTC was not hit by a plane, and many of the other buildings took way more damage than 7 did.

Also firemen were pulled out of there early, and they were busy doing other things like helping out on WTC 1 & 2 collapse.

I am also very sorry that you find facts to be dumb, since that is all I posted.

Like i said, you are a dumbass. WTC7 was hit by the collapse of the other building genius. How do you think the fire started in the first place?

The firemen were pulled out because they were ordered to come out due to fear of collapse. A hole was torn out of WTC7 when the other building collapsed into it. This has been covered a million times on here.

The other WTC buildings that took major damage ended up being demolished because they were beyond repair.

Yea, and none of them collapsed despite taking considerably more damage. 7 is the only one to collapse.



Here you can see how much more damage the other ones took, and still remained standing. It is also notable that WTC stood directly next to 2 other buildings (post office and Verizon building), and neither of them received considerable damage nor did they burn down.

Also, did you know that the BBC reported the collapse of WTC 7 20 minutes before it actually did?

Honestly, if you can't see that WTC7 was a controlled demolition, you just are in complete denial.

Here is the video of the BBC reporting on WTC 7 collapsing 20 minutes before it actually did. You can actually see the building still standing in the background when the reporter is talking about it going down.

WTC5 was a 9 story building. WTC7 was a 47 story building. Do you not realize the difference?

Since you are an idiot allow me to explain. It takes far more steel/concrete/etc to make a 47 story building than a 9 story building. Therefore the base of the 47 story building is supporting far more weight than the base of the 9 story building and is more likely to collapse if the base gets damaged.

I realize i am probably wasting my time though. I am sure you don't have enough sense to see the difference between a 9 story building and a 47 story building.

Nothing I have posted is opinion. Only facts.

I am sorry that you find facts to be so inconvenient.

I guess the firemen on the ground are in complete denial then, since they predicted the building would collapse long before it actually did.

Sure it is a fact that the WTC7 was brought down ONLY by fire and the hole in the building from the where the other building fell into it didn't exist. Sure

I knew you were too stupid to grasp the difference between a 47 story building and a 9 story building. Thanks for proving my point.

The damage was very minor. There were other taller buildings in the surrounding areas that took more damage and did not collapse.

WTC 7's collapse is significant because if it is true that small fires can cause a building to collapse, then the island of Manhattan has huge structural integrity issues. I actually live in a 40 story building here in Manhattan that has had 3 small fires just this year.

Were you there at the time? The firemen were and they said there was a hole 20 stories high in WTC7. I think they know better than you. And there was nothing small about the fires in the building.


I love how you conspiracy nuts just make up nonsense and claim it is a fact.

I see, WTC 7 was brought down (not WFC 1,2,3, not WTC 3,4,5,6 but WTC 7) because of what? Or do your convuluted conspiracy theories not contain motives? Because people usually need reasons to do things....

WTC 7 was a complete and total afterthought to everyone, how it is being presented as a smoking gun is beyond me...
