Skyscraper on fire in Dubai - No Pancake Effect

Burning for 8 hours, no pancake effect.

Washington Post: DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Rescue crews in Dubai safely evacuated a 34-story residential tower Sunday after a fire gutted portions of the building, police said.

The blaze charred the outside of the structure and send gray smoke drifting over a major development known as Jumeirah Lakes Towers, a cluster of high-rise apartment buildings and shops on the southern edge of Dubai.

Mainstream 9-11 truth film sabotaged...

big name stars were lining up to do this film...then a "higher power" killed it.

That really sucks

If nothing else, it would've been interesting hearing the national discussion on this. There could've been a snowball effect. Hopefully somehow it still happens.

The cross was burning

Wonder why the outside was flammable.

Marriott Hotel ???????

How the f*** BBC reported TWICE Building 7 collapse 20 minute in advance?
Watch the video and LISTEN, they already “knew” why the building collapsed. Please also read the captioning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mxFRigYD3s

Also at 0:57 she said “part of the Marriott hotel collapsed because it was hit by the debris”. So the hotel based between the towers didn't collapsed completely, but WTC7, further away, collapsed ate free fall speed?

Here's a photo of the Marriott Hotel heavily damaged but most of the structure is still standing:

Here are some building demolition going wrong, obviously the structures are taking the path of less resistance, a building doesn’t collapse on it's own footprint unless is controlled demolition. I'm not an expert, but the images speak for themselves: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14JM2-Yj2bY&feature=related

Yeah, I meant to link to this

Yeah, I meant to link to this earlier. Buildings are RIGID structures. When one part fails, the rest of the structure stays in tact. So, if the columns on a lower floor fail, the building should either topple over as a single unit or drop as a single unit - i.e., it will stay mostly in tact. It will not crumble to a thousand pieces like a house of cards.

What happened to wTC 7 is impossible without some kind of demolition setup. If it was possible demolition companies wouldn't need to rig buildings. They could just destroy the columns of a single floor.

Didn't you hear? They had

Didn't you hear? They had already gotten the word it was to be "pulled".

Yep...Silvestein has some big explaining to do on that one.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

The Pull It Line

It's such a crazy piece of this story. Wasn't the PBS interview like a year after 9/11? How could he say something like that? It's almost too ridiculous to think it's a cover up. But the fact that it's never been acknowledged as such means things just don't add up. Was this really the shocking blunder that it seems? It's hard to fathom but it's also hard to explain it in any other way.

Truther...and damn proud of it

I know many use it as a derogatory term and I think that is HILARIOUS for its lack of logic.

Every rational sane human being, should be a "truther"...that is...someone trying to find the truth.

The opposite implications of people who are not "truthers"...would be "LIESers".

Don't think I would want to be one of those. Most everyone else too, would not want in their epitaph..."I was a LIESer".

Sort of like the whole "anti-war" meme.

Of course I am anti-war. EVERYONE, except psychopaths and sociopaths, should be antiwar.

War should only be a last last LAST resort.

Just like the truther/lieser dialectic....the anti-war/pro-war one is equally ridiculous.

Every sane rational, and civil individual should want the truth. Hence: TRUTHER

And every sane, rational,and civil individual should want to avoid war.

Sometimes the truth is too simple and elegant, for the average EMO defender of the government or the Establishment, to recognize.

great video, thank you.

great video, thank you.

I'm sick of "truthers" that

I'm sick of "truthers" that aren't open for discussion, you all are as bad as any neocon. You really don't seek the truth.

I myself like to discuss it, but as soon as someone even challenges one of your "facts" or grainy pictures of what may well be smoke, you get all in a tizzy.

That type of response really does not help your cause but you really don't care and many of you "truthers" just want to put us dummies in our place with your newfound internet knowledge of structural engineering, failure analysis and chemistry to name a few.

If you could show some real evidence that isn't conjecture, hearsay, zoomed in pictures etc, as I've spoken about below then but you can't because most of the evidence is gone.

What's funny is that you can't see the irony in your actions/beliefs and how similar they are to the people that are against freedom, I guess many of you are just like the other sheep. Tell em a story and they gobble it up, your maybe just libertarian sheep?

Maybe you'd be happier helping fireant with his book.

Your ~naturally formed thermite~ idea would go well with his explanation for the squibs as simply being "compressed air".

I congradulate your efforts

you are a complete success at keeping your self ignorant

Very interesting around 39:00 regarding the calorimeter test...

...done on the red-gray chips (the active thermitic material) found in the WTC dust...

We compared our spike that we got with a spike from known nano-thermite, which is produced at a military laboratory. Their measured energy released with known nano-thermite was LESS than these red-gray chips.

Pretty impressive stuff to have more zing than the known military stuff.

Agent Dis, Disinformation

Agent Dis, Disinformation maam. Just the facts please.

Get real. Here we go again. Anyone who want to discuss something your "facts" or who challenges your stance is a "disinformation agent". Man I thought I was paranoid.

Wait look behind you, are you being followed.

It's ok, it's America you too can act like a neocon or uberleftist, unable to handle anyone challenging you beliefs but your tactics don't work on most.

I'm tired of the 911 truth

I'm tired of the 911 truth deniers, evidence deniers ("Where is the evidence?" "Oh, that, that isn't evidence."), etc.

I'm tired of the 9/11

I'm tired of the 9/11 truther's not being able to accept there are other possibilities out there besides what Alex Jones, Insert Name Here, OR WHAT THE US GOOBERMENT SAYS.

A plane hit the Empire State

A plane hit the Empire State building many years ago, yet it's still there.

Interestingly, WTC building #7 was not hit by a plane on 911, yet it collapsed "from fire" like #1 and #2...

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Apples and oranges again.

The plane that hit the empire state building had a maximum overload weight of 41,000 pounds and a maximum fuel capacity of 974 Gallons.

A 747 has a maximum overload weight of 735,000 pounds and a maximum fuel capacity of 48,000 gallons.

I thought you "truthers" looked for and researched the TRUTH

or is it conjecture? I never can tell with you guys.

But no plane hit building #7

But no plane hit building #7 at all. You denialists can't seem to deal with that one.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

a 747 hit the towers? really?

or were you just throwing that out for.....something.
