The wingtips did not break into the WTC, they dented and damaged the facade as seen.

So you can't analysis any video, you think they look fake, so you spread lies anyway.

I posted that video and you failed to prove it is fake. Why do you lie when you can't prove the video is fake?


The video does not show the wingtips doing what you say it does.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDEczx-8xZI
This video you say is fake does not show the wingtips breaking the shell, does it?

The plane was going 590 mph, had the energy at impact equal to 2093 pound of TNT, and the jet fuel fire ball is exactly what you get with the jet fuel on board. But the outer wingtips did not penetrate the WTC, NIST knows that, I know that, why are you making up fake claims?
Here it is the videos you say is fake, where is the in depth analysis you did to come to the fake video conclusion now that all the others are real?


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfmkAplBQSM
Is this one fake, as it shows an aircraft, Flight 175, which is also on Radar, right there the same time?

A lot of videos show the impact, and Radar confirms which planes did it.

Huh? And the crowds reaction?

https://youtu.be/JDEczx-8xZI?t=34

The wings are filled with jet fuel. Jet Fuel JP-5 weighs 6.8 pounds per gallon (as a comparison water weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon). The jet fuel has a weight (mass). And it's going 590 m.p.h. What do you think will happen?

We ALL have a problem, and it's not one that can be solved by professional help.The problem is the relentless encroachment of global tyranny and the fact that you 'skeptics' don't see it coming.

The old global tyranny paranoid conspiracy theories stuff which had nothing to do with the videos you say are fake.

You can't show in detail with a real analysis that any video is fake, and you never did the work.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDEczx-8xZI

Prove this is fake. You can't, so why do you lie and say they are fake.

Radar was not fake, and you make up the fake blimp junk recycled from failed 9/11 truth liars.

I still don't believe the wing tips wouldn't break off. And the plane can't fly at that velocity at sea level.

Furthermore, I have no motive or desire to lie. Whatever I say, I believe to be true. I have nothing to gain by lying.

That global tyranny is approaching is neither paranoid nor a theory. but it's beyond the scope of this discussion to present all the evidence for that.

Here'a another angle that convinces me 9/22 was an inside job.

Those who would argu that there are easier ways to justify war than orchestrating 9/11 take note.

Whether any terrorists want to terrorizse a population, or kill as many infidels as possible, there are endless easier, more effective and less risky ways to accomplish those goals. Every aspect of the9/11 fable is fraught with the potential for failure from the terrorist's point of view.

They have to get through airport security. They have to learn how to fly a jumbo jet.They have to take over the planes. They have to hit their targets.

Why not simply derail a few trains, or throw a bomb in a garbage can at a crowed mall and walk away to strike again and again? No one would know where or when the next attack would occur. More terror and deaths accomplished with far less risk of failure. But, I suppose terrorists who are able to outsmart and outmanoeuvre the biggest, most elaborate intelligence and defence apparatus that has ever existed, are just too stupid to figure that out, huh?

Inatead, we get this one time only Hollywood blockbuster production with potential failure points all along the way.. And,of course, no Hollywood discaster story would be complete without heros. so we get the story of flight 93 and Todd Beamer.

And most folks on this forum fell for it, hook, line and sinker. Though, I'm embarrassed to admit, so did I - at first

Are you referring to the hanging of Nathan Hale or George W Bush's birthday?

Yes, sit back and let a small regional problem become a big regional problem that threatens US allies and US financial and security interests. It takes years and it's less flashy but the sheeple never see it coming.

Well...yeah, that's what separates Al Qaeda from the wannabees - balls.

Which they did. They watched and learned, they went to flight school, they made test flights and noted everything from the time they entered the airport to the time their planes landed. That's just good field craft.

Buddy, how you can he be Canadian and know so little about the United States? That stuff you just listed is just another Saturday night in Chicago or Detroit. Sure as hell wouldn't make the news. Hell, I made pipe bombs as a kid. This is America, we shoot stuff and blow s**t up for fun.

Again, you really need to come down for a visit. And they didn't outsmart our intelligence agencies, our intelligence agencies outsmarted each other. And our defense apparatus doesn't work inside the country by design. That's why when we need to shoot Native Americans civil law enforcement does it and not our military like Canada does (looking at you JTF2).

And what about the Candian Highway Patrol? Does everyone drive the speed limit in Canada* ? Does the Highway Patrol catch them all?

* (trick question, nobody drives the speed limit in Canada, and don't get me started on their inability to use turn signals)

Quote:

That was bin Laden's idea, an attack so spectacular it would force America to re-think its Middle Eastern policies and withdraw from the region. And it was a one-time event because we patched a lot of those security holes Al Qaeda took advantage of to pull off the attacks.

A small correction: "And the plane is NOT MEANT to fly at that velocity at sea level." There is a design speed and there are safety margins. The design speed can be exceeded by a significant number (yes, it happened here) before the plane suffers some significant damage or breaks up. There were a few recorded cases of a severe overspending, most of them with happy ending. Probably the most famous is Chinese Airlines 006 involving B747 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Airlines_Flight_006 .
It has been suggested that China Airlines Flight 006 holds the speed record for a 747. The NTSB report states a velocity of 296 KIAS during the powered dive. By comparison, Mach 1 at the altitude that the incident started appears to have been 298 KIAS. Thus it looks like this plane hit the sound barrier on the way down.
Remarkably, the crew managed to save the jet and landing it while parts of the airframe were falling off...
And let's check your logic again. The speed has been determined from faked black box recording, right? Why THEY didn't make the fake recordings more believable? Surely THEY didn't know what the aircraft is capable of and what not... Bloody idiots them THEY!

What about the wing tips, they were smashed by the WTC and left evidence.

Wrong, a 767 can reach in level flight the speeds on 9/11, the engines have more than enough thrust to fly faster than Vmo and Vd, and you can't prove otherwise you are not a pilot or aero major, and failed to provide the math to back up your lie about speed and sea level. BTW, the engines have their most thrust at sea level, you failed at this one, why? Why do you blindly post lies?

Show the math, or retract your lie.

Real video, you never proved fake, thus your claims remain lies.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDEczx-8xZI

You failed to prove this video fake, and never will. Stop spreading lies based on nothing.

Yes, if we want to start a war, we make up lies about Iraq, which had nothing to do with 9/11, and no one liked Saddam anyway. See, war - and 9/11 was done by 19 terrorists, not your THEM you can't name or explain how they did anything you claim is fake. You lost this one.

Really, 19 terrorists killed thousands and ruined hijacking for everyone in the USA. Today DB Cooper would be killed by passengers. Do you know anything about history of hijacking. NO

They have to get through airport security. Yes and before 9/11 we could have small knives which could be used to cut pilot throats who are strapped in and facing forward.

They have to learn how to fly a jumbo jet. They learned how to fly smaller planes and some rented larger simulators. So?

Yes, they had to stand up in first class and kill the pilots. So? They trained on how to cut throats, quick and easy, no pilot. But you apologize for the murderers with lies about 9/11.

They trained how to fly, and hitting a 200 foot tower is easier than landing, but you never flew so you don't know anything about this.,

A bomb is what the FBI was looking for. McVeigh did not kill thousands with his very large truck bomb, why would you settle for hundreds when you can use aircraft as "bombs" equal in energy to 1,000 to 2,000 pound bombs?

Derail a train, what is the average death from derailed trains? When you can use planes as weapons?

No one had a clue people would stand up and cut pilot throats and kill their way to the cockpit, did you? NO

Risk of failure was what? They were 100 percent at taking the planes, 75 percent at hitting targets. Why are you so bad at things associated with math, and so wrong on all your 9/11 related ideas.

Why 100 percent, because no one thought it was going to happen, kill pilots take plane was new. Hijacking is perfect to buy an hour or more before anyone figures out it was fake, and then 93 Passengers figured it out and stopped, and they figured out 9/11 in minutes, you have take years to make up lies and failed to figure out 9/11.

Yes, low tech fake hijacking with small knives tricked you and everyone. And you are the one who can't figure out 9/11, and you call someone stupid? That is funny.

Lucky the Passengers on Flight 93 were smarter than you and took action to stop the terrorists, unlike you who deny the terrorists existed and now you mock the hero's on Flight 93, how disgraceful.

Yes, Flight 93 Passengers figured out 9/11 and you can't, so you mock heros. Good job being disrespectful - you sure can't figure out 9/11.

How long have you been gullible, and believe 9/11 truth lies?

So far you have proved why it was so easy for 19 terrorists to carry out a plot so complex you can't grasp it.

Plot of 19 terrorists.
1. Take plane
2. Crash plane

To complex for you and your 9/11 truth group.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDEczx-8xZI

Please stop the Gish Gallop and try to defend your claim this video is fake, show your work, or retract your lies now. Please - show us you know more than recycled lies you parrot for 9/11 truth.

Why did you switch from being a no evidence anti-vaxxer to a no evidence 9/11 truth fantasy spreader?

Seems strange to drop being an anti-vaxxer to 9/11 truth gullible believer. Albeit both have both use the same evidence, BS. Why 6 months off from spreading woo, did your anti-vaxxer stuff fail, and you moved to 9/11 truth woo?

What did it take 6 months to switch?

Aircraft are not fragile.
Video are not fake.
You Gish Gallop is not impressive.
Your claims seem to be failed ideas from nuts like Balsamo, CIT, and other 9/11 truth idiots.

No matter how much BS you post from failed 9/11 truth nuts like Balsamo and the CIT idiots, your paranoia is showing.

You are projecting big time.

This is funny, you have no evidence so your start sounding like a pod person, taken over by aliens, like the Body Snatchers.

Unable to prove this is fake, now stuck making silly threats ignorance will grow.

When did you adopt the fantasy version of 9/11 put out by 9/11 truth, and drop reality? Did you google up 9/11 and believe the lies?

Are anti-vaxxer susceptible to fall for 9/11 truth lie?

It appears you know less about 9/11 than you do vaccines.

What he doubted was whether the Holocaust ever occurred.

I shut him out real fast, when he started spilling that nonsense.

How is his account 'blatantly false'?

Itchy Boy's posts are a real trip down memory lane. Insurance scam, planes can't fly that low, no mention of OBL on the FBI poster- it's a Gish Gallop of long-debunked crap.
Itchy Boy: have you been on some remote island for the last 18 years? How is it that you seem to have learned absolutely nothing about 9/11 in all that time? This stuff is ancient history, and I am stunned that, not only do you believe it, but you also seem to think that we haven't seen it all a thousand times before.
Baffling. Quite baffling.

All truthers believe that the US gov, the media which they call the MSM, academicians etc. are part of a conspiracy to fee everyone a narrative which does not represent real world truth. Ostensibly these false narratives are used because some "deep state" has an agenda which rational people would not accept.

Anyone who accepts any official narrative about any topic is simply a victim of brain washing... or an agent of the deep state perpetrating the fake narrative. Those in "control" are capable of all manner of technical skills much like producing a movie.. which the so called "sheeple" accept as reality.

The so called conspiracists are incapable of critical thinking, usually lacking scientific of technical backgrounds and can't explain who the reality "show" we all believe was created. They constantly point to some detail as being scientifically or technically impossible and so there must be a dark hidden explanation.

Some conspiricists will attempt to win followers with what is essentially flawed or junk science. To the naive it sounds like the real deal. This applies to people like Gage, Jones, Harrit, Woods, Praeger, Fetzer, Szamboti, Cole, Kevin Ryan and Steve Da'ak tp name a few. They come with little to nothing and expect people who don't accept their (made up out of whole cloth) narrative to prove THEM wrong. They ALWAYS switch the burden of proof, always use junk science/engineering and lack critical thinking and a broad technical background. What they all share in common is the belief that we are constantly lied to about almost everything.

Most of them avoid encounters with technical people who can easily refute their nonsense, instead prefer to make their false claims to gullible and largely technically challenged people. They love to trot out "resumes" of their associates while dismissing those of anyone who disputes their ridiculous claims.

They most certainly are not interested in the truth about the world, or discovering it using science. We've come to understand the 9/11 Truth is nothing but 9/11 lies, naivete and stupidity.

But why are they doing what they do if it's not "science"? Some to profit and massage their egos, others because they dislike many of the things in the world of fact. They resent marketing and PR and hidden agendas and see them everywhere they look... so there is an element of paranoia on top of their distrust for "authority". You can't be a "truther" or conspiracy believer unless you reject a commonly held world view.

This is a mass and individual psychology problem not a technical one.

That's kind of revealing, don't you think? You've started from a conclusion, and then declared everything fake that doesn't agree with that conclusion, for no other reason than that it disagrees. From then on, you've abandoned the concept of evidence. You're not doing science; you're doing theology.

They don't penetrate, they shatter as they hit.

About 2.19 in this video, pause and single frame through the entire impact:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...ature=emb_logo

The wings are obviously not penetrating anything.

Watch the wings hold their shape as they shatter, just as those wingtips in the Hezarkhani video do.

But they did. They had their inertia, though, but they only dented the columns at these points. I'm not sure if they penetrated the building, meaning that most of the wing went through the space between columns, or if they stuck outside and were ejected by the explosion. It seems clear that they didn't bounce back.

Oh yes it can, but if you ever try it, keep in mind that you will have trouble, or not be able at all, to land afterwards, because the structure will probably be too severely damaged for that. The very basics, however, are still met: the wings can still keep the plane in the air and the rear ailerons will probably still work. That's all the hijackers needed.

UA175 impacted at about Mach 0.76 or 0.77, close to the limit where a high-speed stall may occur. In fact, that may have been the cause that the pilot didn't strike closer to the centre; hard to know. But assuming it was accelerating all the way down, it was below that for most of the trajectory, therefore it was possible.

It wasn't at sea level.
Why can't it fly at that speed?

Because he doesn't believe it can without any facts. Reminds me of some thoughts I picked up when dealing with Moon landing hoaxers:

If I don't understand something, then it must be fake.
If I can't explain something, then it must be fake.

And there might be many more.

Frustrating? It is more like typing practice, and something to do while not playing fortnite with my grandkids.

The tide of ignorance? What are you talking about, you spread the dumbest lies on the internet, and can't produce your work, or any work which proves this video is fake.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDEczx-8xZI
You claim this is fake, show the evidence. Why can't you produce your analysis?

Where is your evidence to support your claims? Right, your claims are lies you found on the Internet, the great tide is ignorance.

Why did you not take physics?

Please provide a link to the one clear concise alternative explanation regarding 9/11? While you are at could you clear up the following.

- AE911T (Gage, et.al) claims the towers were destroyed by controlled demolition using nanothermite and conventional explosives and no nukes. Prager states it was controlled demolition but mini neutron bombs were used and no nanothermite. (Who is correct?).

There are so many alternative explanations regarding 9/11 all claiming to be correct.

So far I think Itchy Boy has only gone for anti-vax and truther conspiracies but he is very engaged (we can give him credit for persistence - no flyby here) and there's only so much time in the day, so we can hope for eventual expansion.

He is referring to the wing tips here and they don't slice through, rather they shatter.

But they give the illusion in the video of slicing through because the part that has not yet shattered maintains its shape and momentum even though it is no longer attached to anything.

I am using the video of the JASSM to show that this is quite typical.
