Whatever :-). But without going in semantics, doesn't "surprises me" mean something like "appears to be inconsistent with..."?

Consider the fact that the cladding was applied after the steel panels were in place. I suspect the insulation was part of the cladding AND the joints of the cladding did not align with the steel. This may mean that the alum panel saw some different forces from the steel. Panels could have sprung (out) in some cases not be severed.

But a few odd sections of alum does not render the plane hitting the tower as fantasy... especially in light of the vast amount of what appears to be evidence that a jumbo hit the tower.

There were very few eye witnesses to AA11, but there were tens of thousands to UA175... and it was captured on multiple cameras from many locations.

Steve is tilting at windmills here... and is not and should not be taken seriously.

That's interesting.

In the first photo, the oft-circled piece of cladding is in front of the 5th column along from the wingtip impression. That photo appears to have been taken from a position to the left of the other one, as you can see the west side of the tower.

In the photo yankee451 posted several times also taken from a position to the left, the cladding is further to the right, not covering column 5 at all and closer to column 6.

Did the cladding move? Which photo was taken first, I wonder. Is the cladding perhaps dangling from some connection we can't make out, like a piece of window frame, and gradually slipping?

My thoughts did turn to whether driving traffic to one's website might be a reason to stoutly defend an absurd claim, but the tiny audience here surely make that explanation implausible.

I see, so that means the lightly bent cladding and the gouged and sharply bend steel columns are consistent with the head on impact of a jet. I get it.
I see some words here, but they bear no relation whatsoever to the question I asked.

Please try again.

Are you saying the airframes are myth along with with the people that were in them?

More weird mechanics -

I was clearing junk from around the garden and found a thin, pretty rotten piece of wood, maybe 18" long. Propped it against a breeze block, thinking that one good stamp would easily break the wood and I can chuck it in the wood stove.

The breeze block shattered. My foot hurts a little but no great damage done.

Such a thing is clearly impossible, so I reckon I must have taken some reality-altering drugs.

Cruise missiles don't do lateral impacts. They aren't designed that way. They are designed to avoid those very things.

Why do you think that the wing on those missiles, held on by hinges BTW, would hold together better than a wing on an airliner? The wings aren't welded on to survive multiple flights. Missiles are a one shot item. They don't get to be re-used. The hinges are constructed to maintain flight for a few hours, tops.

So were the missiles, which didn't exist, specially constructed, reinforced, programmed by some unknown parties or do you think they were off the shelf?

Do you have any actual working knowledge of the weapon system in question? It doesn't sound like it.

The idiot fantasy missiles don't have enough mass and kinetic energy to do the damage of the 757. You lost due to science, videos, and eyewitnesses.

You have failed to prove the videos were faked.

Some lie and know they are lying... (the worst kind)

Some lie and don't realize they are lying

Some are not interested in the truth despite their claim to be.

Some (many) lie about things they know nothing about

Some persist in lying even after their lies have been exposed.

Most who lie expect to get away with it.

The progressively worse damage to the columns is explained by the warhead penetrating deeper into the tower, but it loses energy as it penetrated so what began with gouged steel columns ends up only bending them as it slows down.

A rocket sled test center can put this conclusion to the test.

Something like this:
https://youtu.be/5_a1foRId6M
The warhead is designed to penetrate. The wing is not. There would be no reason to harden or reinforce the wing structure. In fact, it would be wiser to design it to sheer off, to lessen the drag on penetration forces. Having to push what would be a bullet at that point is far better than having to drag a useless wing deep into a target.

You really have no idea on missiles or their functions, do you? The wings, or fins, are there just to get the payload to the target. They aren't strongly attached to the missile. And, again, the JAASM wings are on hinges. They fold for shipping. They aren't more sturdy than a fully attached, airliner wing filled with fuel. As you noted, it was designed to penetrate, not give glancing blows.

You have the missile doing something it was designed to avoid, lateral impact. You have the wing doing something it wasn't designed to do, stay attached during penetration. On a missile system that wasn't actually functioning for another 6 years.

Ya think? I said the wings were only responsible for the lightly damaged cladding.

The steel would not have been bent that way from a Missle impact at that angle, no way.

You have made a big deal that there exists no live footage of the plane hitting WTC 2. However look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBciZFE8lAw
Time stamp ~1.15 and clearly see a 767 flying toward the WTC complex and then repeated at ~15:36, both were followed by a very large fireball exiting the east side of WTC 2. Now how does your untrained inaccurate mind explain away
A: How did this plane make an impossible 90 degree turn to miss the complex?
B: Where did the plane go? Including all the people inside of it?

I watched this all live on TV at the time of the accident, so don't tell me that it was fabricated.

I'm not the one inventing new properties for that weapon system. Why can the wings of a missile be responsible for "lightly damaged cladding" but the wings on a 767 couldn't possibly do that?

Any particular reason you avoided everything else? Besides ignorance of the weapon system?

Also, wouldn't it be easier to find any one of the 4 air frames that actually existed than invent properties of a missile system that does not exist?

Even if they built a number of one-off missiles, they were destroyed on impact. If you could find, say the fight crew, or just one of them, then you would have iron-clad proof of the conspiracy. You wouldn't even need to find them alive. A corpse would serve just fine too.

The invisible missiles did it. How did they fake the image of the Flight 175 which appeared in the eyes to the brain of the many eyewitnesses.

How to you do it? Mock the murder of thousands and leave a legacy of hate of your fellow citizens murdered by saying they never existed. How embarrassing to your kids their kids.

Why is there no evidence for your claim of faked videos?

This really is the most baffling part. The events of 9/11 were planned out a long time in advance. NYC and the WTC towers in particular were deliberately chosen precisely because the perpetrators knew damn well the entire world was going to have eyes and ears on lower Manhattan. The point was to broadcast a very clear message they knew would be seen and heard.

If, as yankee451 states, that was all smoke and mirrors...then we have no message and the messenger and their motivations remain unknown. Which kind of defeats the purpose of the whole enterprise.

Typical.

Ah, the old "eyewitness" chestnut.

You see, those witnesses actually did see an invisible swarm of 14 foot-long cruise missiles but once they switched on the news, they were immediately brainwashed by the MSM and believe they saw great ******* airliners slice into the towers like a knife through butter. Nobody has spoken up after all these years for fear of ridicule, or something.

Do keep up.

Sheesh.

It is hard to tell if he is serious, or if this is just some lighthearted hobby.

He seems to find no improbability that hundreds of people, many of them experts in their fields, are complicit in a complex conspiracy involving hundreds of hours planning and co-ordination and costing millions of dollars.

That two separate airline companies have agreed to falsify their records to pretend they have lost planes. That companies that were tenants of the buildings have agreed to pretend that people died and that their employees presumably vacated the building on that day.

That military missile experts, explosive experts, transportation, etc all took part in this and that people pretended to have relatives or friends killed and have kept up the pretense ever since.

That everybody approached to help with this either agreed to help or agreed never to disclose that someone asked them to do it.

And in the twenty years since they have all kept completely quiet about it despite the money they could make blowing the plot.

This he finds easy to believe.



But he finds it impossible to believe that one piece of cladding might not have been severed all the way through when hit by a wing.

Problem with your cartoon is that the missiles are designed to strike head-on, and would have been launched in such a way to make that possible. The exact missile in your cartoon was having guidance problems in 2001 making even flying straight an issue.

More pathetic nonsense from a liar.
