I don't think the planes brought down the buildings. The Empire State Building was hit by a plane in the 20's or 40's and it wasn't brought down.
Witness from the BBC news feed (see my previous ref) says there was a shaking at the base of the building. This means there was a coordinated attack. Possibly someone "set us up the bomb" at the base of one or both of the buildings. My theories, but I think the buildings are set up to withstand a plane impact.
2001-09-11 10:55:19 AM  
news here - chat in forum - can we do that?

Reguarding the posts about This is what Pearl harbor must have felt like, are ignoring the fact that the US government KNEW about the attack on Pearl Harbor almost a week before hand, and knew of the attacking force 18 hours before they attacked.

Many people are asking WHY US? Well, because we turn a blind eye to Israel when they perform the same racism that was performed against them, for starters. Secondly, we use various countries as pawns to further our own gains.

We are as guilty as the farks who are attacking us. Be thankful a nuke hasn't gone off. I am. I am oddly surprised that the terrorist farks haven't nuked a city yet.

Boston, Pittsburg, Chicago airports evacuated - CBC
2001-09-11 10:56:16 AM  
I heard 30,000 people work at the towers. Assuming that they all made it to work on time...

You can't do that in war. The nukes at Hiroshima and Nagasaki barely took that many lives. This was basically 2 planes and 2 buildings, and we weren't even at war.

It's time to fark somebody up, but who? American terrorists aren't known for hijacking planes. That's pretty much left to the very experienced hijackers of bin Laden and other mid-east psychos.

I doubt that we will use nukes, but we ARE NOW AT WAR!

America will go on. ...
Great comment heard from the un-farked bbc news feed, "This is not just an attack on the American people, but an attack on all civilised people." (James Reuben, BBC1,

America is never untouchable, we just feel that way, sometimes.

Machtyn The buildings are not built to withstand a 737. The empire state building was hit by a prop plane.
