Re: 9/11 and greedy lawyers!Aug 1st, 2008
Somewhere in here are three different times where I have described the tube construction of WTC as opposed to conventional column-and-beam framework. They were designed to take the all-over loads of hurricane winds and earthquake. They weren't designed for the high speed pointal impact of a heavily loaded passenger jet. The collision would have been like ringing a bell - setting off torsional effects and shearing forces at several levels. Damaged connections acting in conjunction with heat softening steel members would have caused failure to begin.
Whether there was a failsafe system included in the building's construction is not known to me, nor would it be known to anyone who posts in this forum. I haven't dismissed it ... but I can't prove it either.
I like and respect Willie Nelson, and here is what he says about the towers:

Straight talking American icon Willie Nelson today told a national radio show that he thought the twin towers were imploded like condemned Las Vegas casino buildings, as the country music superstar voiced his doubts about the official 9/11 story.
Agreeing with host Alex Jones that he questioned the official story, Nelson elaborated, "I saw those towers fall and I’ve seen an implosion in Las Vegas - there’s too much similarities between the two, and I saw a building fall that didn’t get hit by nothing," added Nelson, referring to WTC Building 7 which collapsed in the late afternoon of September 11.
"How naive are we - what do they think we’ll go for?," asked Nelson, pointing out that his doubts began on the very day of 9/11.
"I saw one fall and it was just so symmetrical, I said wait a minute I just saw that last week at the casino in Las Vegas and you see these implosions all the time and the next one fell and I said hell there’s another one - and they’re trying to tell me that an airplane did it and I can’t go along with that," said Nelson.
The former Highwayman, fresh from his appearance at this past weekend’s superbowl, questioned why Afghanistan became an immediate target in the aftermath of 9/11 when the official story posited that mostly Saudi Arabians were responsible for the attack.
"When I get hit I like to look around and see who did it before I start swinging at everybody in the room and that’s kind of what we were...
Wolf, not that I want to discredit your considerations about the structure of the towers, but I have to say I give Willie's logic some credit as well.
Now, believing what we first talked about, namely the US government ignoring all warnings, because they were overconfident nothing could happen to them, why did they have plans for the Afghan and Iraq war already drawn up before 9/11 happened?
Since the US to this day still hasn't captured Osama, the mastermind of 9/11, it stands to reason he is not the culprit they are after. Who then could be the initiator?
