Europe's Tallest-To-Be Building Is Burning - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture




 

First the Costa Concordia was a sinking example of the failing European experiment, now we may have an even better case study of the continent's burning ambitions, as the Moscow Federation Tower, designed to be the tallest building in Europe, is engulfed in flames. As RT says, "As firefighters try to put out the flames on the top floors, the danger the incomplete building might collapse is growing every minute." Watch live here until the feed is shut off.

Hindenburg event. How fitting for a burning continent.
So when does the second Antonov AN-225 strike the tower?

Seems like the power elite need such events before rolling out the newly creaded "police forces".

It's the least Barry can do to help out a fellow statesman like Putin in need:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/why-is-president-obama-betting-on...

[snip] (Emphasis mine):

"Most important, Mr. Putin’s decade-old autocratic regime is looking shaky. Hundreds of thousands of Russians have turned out to demonstrate against fraud in the presidential and parliamentary elections, and to demand political reform. Many Russian experts are saying that the Kremlin’s economic and political policies are unsustainable, and that Mr. Putin will not finish his six-year term unless he makes major concessions to the opposition — which he shows little sign of doing.

Remarkably, however, President Obama has responded to Mr. Putin’s return to the presidency by strongly affirming his commitment to partnering with the strongman. His meant-to-be-confidential assurance to outgoing President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday, that “after my election I have more flexibility” to solve “all these issues, but particularly missile defense,” was only the latest sign that Mr. Obama has decided to bet on deal-making with Mr. Putin rather than on democratic change in Russia."

Flexibility huh....He should probably start with a little light body scanning and work his way up from there.

In Russia, the letters TSA translate into 'KGB'.

Zero, and i've been here a long time fighting the ignorance that gives ZH a bad name.

I am just in awe of the kind of rationalization required to simultaneously believe that the federal government is incompetant (which it is) yet in the case of 9/11, pulled off the greatest piece of open-air theater ever accomplished without anyone spilling the beans. Idiots say things like, "well they fell straight down! how do you explain that?" to which I can say, "A basic understanding of engineering and gravity would tell you that the curtain wall construction of the WTCs made it much more likely for the burning jet fuel to compromise the integrity of the long steel beams holding up the floors, causing one to pancake down on the others."

But at that point the 9/11 truther has gone back to knawing on the doggie toy because materials engineering is a communist conspiracy cooked up by Cheney in the bunker outside Moscow.

The WTC wasn't built back in the mid 20th century. Construction was started in 1971 using a revolutionary and unique design that relied upon the strong outer curtain wall which allowed for wide open internal office space without many support pillars. The planes ripped that curtain open and sprayed the floors with burning jet fuel. That fuel caused the steel to warm up, and since you know that warming metal causes it to expand and lose its structural integrity, the floors began to sag and finally fall. Without internal support columns, things fall down very quickly.

Jet fuel can't melt construction steel. Furthermore, when only side of building's support is crippled, it collapses in a different manner.

 

P.S. BTW, what a happened to that WTC building 7 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7SwOT29gbc ?

You should really learn you history, i'd suggest you to start with how US entered WW2... you know, that story where Roosevelt forced Japan to attack Pearl Harbor. Oh, and their fleet was tracked all the way from Japan to Pearl Harbor to make sure nothing will go wrong. It's all the same.

Isn't it obvious? Once the rules were changed to where jet fuel can crumble a steel building in upon itself by shearing the steel without it bending, then it became instantly possible for an office fire to do the same thing.

Can you explain why the inner column supports were not left standing at least part of the way?  I understand the design completely and as a mechanical engineer that has done solid modeling and strength analysis, I can say the the inner core that was made up of MANY columns and supports would at lest be standing at 30%.. MINIMUM!!  We won't even debate the thermodinamics of the situation as to how hot for how long it would take to weaken the steel supports.. Have you actually seen footage of the buildings coming down?  If you have, and do not think something is wrong with the official explanation, well, i'm sorry to say, you are a moron.. And probably have ZERO engineering or design experience with structural steel.. I do..

That doesn't follow.  Just because something lead to misery and increased government power doesn't mean that it was the government that did it.  They clearly TOOK ADVANTAGE of the situation, but that does NOT imply that they caused it to happen in a direct manner.

The government is evil, but that doesn't mean that all evil comes from the government.  Evil comes about when men commit aggression against one another.  The government might have CAUSED 9/11 through their relentless oppression of muslims, but that doesn't mean that they planned and executed it.

Could be.  I'm sorry we spend so much energy on details that, in the larger picture, are completely superfluous by now, regardless of what really happened in 2001 NYC.  

To give them what it seems to me should be considered a reasonable amount of credit, it's not like the various players they believe pulled off the job wouldn't do it if they could. 

More importantly, I can't help but think, what's followed has certainly made for a seamlessly fascist sequence of events. 

I wish "truthers" would just stick to those indisputable facts.

Everything that has followed 9-11 has been more than enough to confirm their basic instincts, it seems to me.  Do we really have to argue about individual punches in this fight?

Steel melting on itself is not a self sustaining reaction, i'm sorry, there is no internal heat being generated by it, unless an outside force/heat is applied, it will not remain a liquid in -open air- (the other examples you give are not open air, the coal is flammable and in an enclosed space to build up pressure and heat, the tires burn because petroleum is flammable, not to mention god knows what other ethylenes in there, steel is -not- flammable), unless there is some other chain reaction/decay involved to supply the heat. Sorry Tmos, i'm afraid those examples are wrong, usually you and I agree but not today :)

"I'm gonna put my barbeque out by the curb, too, before it collapses. You can't be too safe, you know."

Proof Tax Slave is a liar and is in no way knowledegable of metalurgy.

The Japanese engineers, well that's another story. They figured out that there's a problem with US building codes, which account for weakening of steel from fire but not for the further weakening due to vertical expansion of columns. In the case of WTC 1 and 2, the heat was enough to weaken the steel at the hottest points down to  10% of design strength (which is still well below melting, btw). However, it also caused the hottest columns to expand 1" in height per floor, acting as jacks trying in vain to lift the upper floors. So ultimate failure came as increased height from thermal expansion factored in with reduction in bearing capacity due to heat stress. Failure came well below melting temp, even well below that required for failure from heat alone.

What are referring to is known as shearing stress. It's w ell known and accounted for effect that is absolutely inapplicable in this situation. The steel and the floors of the WTC's were designed specifically to have 4' of flex in all directions to provent the stresses of that neture to build up in the first place. When people say the WTC were the first of their kind, they were not lying. The amount of technological innovation of those towers was far beyond what most of you would even be aware of. Yes, even the Japanese, because apparently they were not aware of that little 4" of give.

Sorry, Parrot, but you are what is known as a useful idiot. Steel has a certain design yield strength, say 22,000 psi. If a column expands it takes the load off of surrounding columns, acting like a jack. That increases its share of the load. ADDITIONALLY, the heated steel is loosing strength. When it fails it makes a huge bang and its load is redistributed to surrounding columns that are then overloaded, and are expanding and weakening fron heat, and so on. One simply can't analyze design in context of load shifting from progressive structural failure with the tools they had back in the '60s.

Why are so many people married to the conspiracy theory that the feel the need to lie about being structural engineers? This whole thread is full of liars. Azzoles - ever heard of projection? That's when you are  a liar, for example, and being a liar you assume everyone else is a liar, and hatch conspiracies based on their "lies."

Google "Fire Resistance of Steel Frames" by Sakumoto, Nishigaki, Ikeda and Kohno. Look at Photo 6 for deformed column from loaded heat test. Then, if you give a damn, read the 11-page report.

I saw it all, and yet, I still have my doubts.  My dad was a welder, so I grew up around shop where all kinds of steel was being cut and joined together all the time.  It takes a lot of focused heat to melt steel--a really hot fire in an area would not do it.  You're saying that the steel wasn't melted but simply "weakened" but again, I just don't see how massive I-beams would melt enough in a typical fire.  You need really focused heat--like an oxygen/acetylene torch or an oxidizing reaction like thermite to get the temperature you need.

That's why the lie had to change over time to the wishy-washy "weakened."

Otherwise, within two weeks, everyone would've stepped back and went "hey, this shit isn't even possible, let alone likely."

What is a scientifically accepted fact? Is it better than a regular one? I happen to know a few scientists, and I've never heard them make the distinction from regular facts. And while we're talking about scientists, did they all convene a secret meeting and endorse the NIST findings? Because I reckon I would have heard of that too (I'm on the email listserv). The fact* that other scientists have not objected to NIST's findings does not imply an endorsement.

* The regular kind of fact, not one of the more fancier types like you use.

If the support was all in the sides and one side got destroyed you would have seen asymetric collapse...otherwise demolition companies are a scam. In any case there were lots of inner columns in all 3 WTC buildings...even the one not hit by a plane. The symettric fall due to fire is very very wierd...demolition experts will say it was impossible. The offical explantion is not logical because it is not even possible.

I think you need help with your definintions. When an entire building collapses straight down, directly into its own footprint, that is symmetric. An assymetric collapse is when it falls in pieces at different times in different directions, with parts toppling over, etc...

For your edification:

quoting: http://www.debunking911.com/pull.htm

"Conspiracy sites like to bring up the 'Symmetric Collapse' of building 7 and claim that the building should have fallen over to the south. They show grainy, dark photos of debris piles which were taken well after 9/11 and a debris pile with a grayish, smoky image of building 7 in the background. They deceptively show the north side which was relatively free of damage. As if the Tower should have reached over to the other side of the building and damaged that side too. "

Pictures and discussion halfway down the page should put this one to rest. Thanks for your attention.

BTW, your arguments might make sense had not the buildings all collapsed at near free-fall speed. Something which anyone with the least bit of engineering understanding would realize can only happen if there is NO RESISTANCE below it, like say 70+ stories of skyscraper.

As for Bldg. 7... well, you'd have to be an even bigger idiot to believe that 'collapse' story, as the building was about as asymmetrical as you can get, being built AROUND an existing ConEd power plant. Yet it fell perfectly into its own footprint, even though its skeleton had loads projecting in all sorts of directions as a result of its contstruction.

You might as well go find a new site to troll now, as your work here is done.

Near free fall = Bullshit. 15 seconds give or take is not freefall. 9 and a fraction seconds is. Gravitational acceleration is exponential, so a lead sphere falling from a distance of 2.5 times the height of either twin tower would have hit the ground at the same time as the tower roof. "Near free fall" sounds good but visually it's no match.

When you watch the video of a tower collapsing you see two parts, separated by the damage caused by the airplanes, collapsing simultaneously. The top is collapsing onto the bottom, and the bottom part is collapsing from the top down. The total collapse speed is the sum of those two parts' individual rates. Once the top part is completely collapsed, you can clearly see the towers collapse slow down, as only the bottom remains collapsing. Conspiratorial idiots like to take the collapse time when both sections are collapsing onto each other and extrapolate. But there are available video for each of the twin towers' collapses where the time of the sound of the actual collapses can be measured.

No, building 7 did not fall in it's footprint. Look long enough on line and you will find pictures of one side facing upward, taken from a nearby building, and another where #7's debris, several stories tall, have been cleared off an adjoining roadway over which it fell.

32 feet per second, per second, shitforbrains. Tha's gravitational acceleration. Acceleration, Parrot, is exponential. Every second velocity increases 32 feet per second. So if one object drops from 64 feet and a second from 32 feet, it doesnt take twice the time to hit the ground (linear) it takes 1.4 times longer (square root of 2).

The fact is there were 47 internal columns holding up the WTCs. You are correct in that the steel mesh outer screen was contemporary design in order to strengthen the building, but not for the reason you state, “to allow for open office space”.

The two buildings hit by planes were built to withstand just that type of event. Like a pencil through the screen over window doesn’t impair the rest of the screens structure a plane penetrating the WTCs outer screen would not impair the integrity of the entire outer structure.  The fact that a wayward bomber flew into the Empire state building just after WW2 was the reason that the architects designed the buildings to have to withstand a 767 flying right into them. I think it was 767 that was the largest commercial passenger plane when the building still in design.

Also “warming” steel may expand but it does not lose its integrity until well past 2,500 Fahrenheit, a temp level which is literally impossible in an open air fire. Anyway let’s put these points aside.

Do you assert that the 1,500+ architects and engineers for 911 (AE911truth dot org), do not understand engineering or physics?

The government isn’t inept.  Bureaucrats are inept. The folks that own our rethuglican and democrap politicians are far from inept.  You maybe inept, but not them.

Completely wrong on all counts. The WTC 1 and 2 designs were to maximize floor space, which makes money but also created a design issue. The structure was designed to withstand aircraft hititng them but not fires against raw steel. Landing aircraft low on fuel, not those having just taken off, were considered. Code requires time for occupants to get out, not infinite structural capacity. Fires kept people trapped. And Steel looses 90% of strength between 750 and 900 degrees celsius. It melts at temperatures you mention.

 

Yes, those architects and engineersa are idiots - OR - they agree on further hearings but not that the airplanes didn't bring down the towers. ask the AIA their position.

A well educated person understands that the most logical explanation for an event is usually the correct one. Explanations that involve vast conspiracies with thousands of participants and billions of dollars of equipment and training are by their very nature impossible to keep from being discovered. I know you and your cabal of nutballs thinks you've figured it all out but most of what you rely upon as truth is actually rumor and conjecture that has been recycled over and over again until no one knows where it came from. Example: The "hundreds/thousands" (depending on who you ask) of israelis/jews/zionists who didn't show up to work at the WTC that day due to some early warning. It was a rumor started by a pro-palestinain tv station without any source or proof. Yet over thousands of times copied over and over on various 9/11 truther sites, it has mysteriously lost that biased sourcing and just become accepted truther fact of a zionist conspiracy.

26. Why was the series of recommendations Al Gore also put together in 1996 on airport security called by Republican congress "paranoid" and too harsh. Why did the airline industry, lobbying against it, consider it too expensive and impractical?

It's remarkable how much emotion these 'truthers' put into their debates, esp. irt. personal attacks.

As to the debate M.O. of posting a wall of text, entirely cut-n-pated from somewhere else, and requiring that the opponent debunk all of it....

Of course, should "the bitch" choose to spend her time doing so, you quite aware that the outcome would be (assuming the 'truthers' were still around to listen, which they of course wouldn't be - they'd have moved on to the next hapless thread or target to hose down with bile and emotional outbursts) more insults, talk-arounds and further appeals to conspiracy, as it always is with conspiracists.

I'm not sure I follow.  It can be both that the government perpetrated 9/11 and is also incompetent. It's not like the whole massive organization was involved, just a small, compartmented group of people in one of the intelligence services who moved the project along and removed any roadblocks put in place by remaining pockets of competence within agencies such as the FBI. Why is that so hard to understand?  Either a bunch of know-nothings from Saudi led by a blind sheik perpretrated the world's greatest financial crime, or they were materially aided so that there would be terrorism drills taking place on just the right day and locations in order to add to the cognitive dissonance as well as a coordinated release of anthrax to further scare the populace while eliminating any roadblocks to the pasage of key legislation to enable all the the various schemes the PNAC had devised ahead of time. 

I don't know why the buildings fell straight down.  I do know that Building 7 received no direct hit from a plane and was demolished for reasons not completely related to its structural integrity, as though some kind of crime had to be concealed or perhaps other evidence of corruption conveniently eliminated permanently.  

9/11 is the mother of all false-flag operations to date.  There's just too many coincidences and events such as members of the Bin Laden family being spirited out of the US while no other commercial planes were allowed to fly.  How does that get arranged like that?  It was a tremendous coup and it helped stave off the collapse until 2008 while lining the pockets of the power elite in the process.  Think of it like a giant bank robbery amongst loosely associated insiders, the majority of whom did not directly know what was going to happen, only that something big would happen and that they should position themselves accordingly, so that's why you have the WTC property changing hands shortly before the event and the big insurance policy taken out on it, the anonymous people who bought put options on the airlines, and so on.  Some people definitely knew something and acted on it.

Well... would it actually take 'thousands' of people to be in on it?

And does jet fuel burn hot enough (in an oxygen-poor environment, yet!) to melt/sufficiently weaken structural steel? Plenty of engineers think not:

And that WT7 business.. that's a bit fishy, no? No tonnes of jet fuel to bring that baby down.

Now... where's that doggie toy? I love the smell of doggie toy in the morning.. it's... it's the smell of victory!

How many thousands of charges need to be set to bring down a building like the WTC?  How could you possibly keep that many people quiet after they saw that they had really, really participated in that act of mass murder of their own people?  

Truthers believe in evil mutants.  But there aren't a lot of people like that, and they certainly don't organize and play nice with each other.

Ask your engineers whether or not anything ELSE in those towers could burn hot enough to melt or weaken steel that had had its insulation blasted off.  Here's a hint--charcoal burns hot enough to SMELT the stuff.

I am just in awe of the kind of rationalization required to simultaneously believe that the federal government is incompetant (which it is) yet in the case of 9/11, pulled off the greatest piece of open-air theater ever accomplished without anyone spilling the beans.

Who said anything about the federal government being incompetent?  Not me. 

They're smart enough to fool all the sheeple into believing they're trying to help the economy recover.

They appear incompetent at it because they're not trying to help the economy recover.  They couldn't care less about the economy.

And yes, this government is quite capable of pulling off a huge false flag event like WTC.

The only incompetent people are the ones believing it was done by a few arabs.  Anyone believing that ridiculous story is just plain stupid.

And no, fire has never brought down a steel skeleton skyscraper.  Never.  Ever.

You have to be deliberately blind to the facts to believe it could and would.  There's more than enough evidence to show what really happened. You just ignore it.

People believe what they wana believe.  Facts don't matter.  Evidence doesn't matter.  That's why discussing 9/11 with a cofirmed koolaid drinking believer is a waste of time.  Their mind is made up.  It's not gonna change regardless of how many facts and how much evidence you show them.

Trying to change their mind is lunacy also.  A waste of time.

By the way folks, this thread illustrates why there won't be a revolution in America.   Too many koolaid drinking morons believing any bullshit the government tells them.

Blah blah.

Stay on topic. How many thousands of peopel do you think was involved in the conspiracy to bring down the WTC, and bust the pantagon, and remove an entire planeload of people and la la la...

And why hasn't anyone spoken out?

They're a mighty tightlipped bunch, I'd say.

Less than a thousand.  Some of them are Israeli government employees sworn to secrecy.  The rest know what the penalty is (death) for exposing the operation, besides the obvious possibility of prosecution for accessory to murder.  Some of them are already dead.  They were well compensated.

The military has been involved in many operations/conspiracies  that had thousands involved that were kept secret.  How about the conspiracy to bomb Japan with an atomic bomb, for example?

"The military has been involved in many operations/conspiracies that had thousands involved that were kept secret. How about the conspiracy to bomb Japan with an atomic bomb, for example?"

The scientists and personell working on the Manhattan project in question were locked down tightly in a camp. Besides, the peopel in the top slots later came very public with their disdain and ethical outrage over the methods and use of their developments. Later, what set off the cold war was the nabbing of the nuclear bomb designs by the russians.

All government employees in places of confidentiality are sworn to secrecy, are they not? Yet both can be considered leaks.

"The rest know what the penalty is (death) for exposing the operation,"

That hasn't dissuaded many humans of different nations from exposing and protesting what they saw as outrageous and inhumane.

" besides the obvious possibility of prosecution for accessory to murder."

I think that ranks very low on the list of reasons not to disclose a massive government false flag operation.

And, not even considering how looselipped people tend to be when either alcohol or monetary rewards are involved.... still no whistleblowers, considering the ease of which government dirty laundry can be aired these days?

By the way, I'd guess that WikiLeaks would have some dirt on the WTC coverup by now (assuming it was there), but I've heard nothing to suggest that.
