    Fire engulfs 27-story building built in 1974.

    Looks like it's still standing. And here I thought fire melted steel. Silly me.
    If the military wanted you to have a spouse, or family, they would have issued you one.

    Fire fueled by thousands of gallons of jet fuel will do that, right?

    The explosives demo team that took down the Twin Towers have all retired..all 230 of them. So they couldn't get anyone with the experience necessary for this job.

    I realize this is your idiotic political statement. However, Fire "can" melt steel but there are many factors involved, such as;

    1. Intensity and temperature of the fire.
    2. If the steel had fireproofing protection
    3. Thickness and weight of the steel and lots more.

    If, in your political statement, you're trying to compare this to the twin towers, you're an idiot.

    The twin towers was not your every day fire.
    When you have thousands of gallons of jet fuel sprayed over a two or three floors of a building and ignited it's not like some furniture and contents.

    Wow. Well, I was actually referring to building 7 of the trade center complex. But since you all bring it up, the towers were never fully engulfed in fire, like this building in England that was fully engulfed and burning for hours, 12 actually. There was way more smoke than fire in the towers. In addition, there was never a sufficient fuel/air mixture to produce a fire hot enough, long enough, to melt the steel support members that were designed to withstand the very thing that happened. Science is a funny thing isn't it? I'm just making an observation.

    So, your facts on what caused the twin towers to go down?
