Thermite Has Been Used for Building Demolitions and Popular Mechanics Covered it in 1935

There are obvious differences in what is presented below and what most likely happened to WTC 1, 2, and 7 on 9/11; but thermite has been around for a while.

Skyride Tower Felled by Melting Steel Legs

Intense heat was employed by wrecking engineers in toppling the 3,000,000-pound east tower of the “Skyride,” a major attraction of Chicago’s Century of Progress. Huge “overshoes” in the form of cupolas made of steel and lined with firebrick were constructed around two legs of the tower and filled with 1,500 pounds of thermite, a mixture of aluminum and iron oxide. When fired by electricity the thermite generated a temperature of more than 5,000 degrees about the two legs, melting the ten-foot sections almost instantly, causing the tower to tip and then to crash. A microphone attached to the tip of the tower broadcast the noise of the fall by radio, and the spectacle was viewed by a crowd estimated at more than 100,000. The west tower had been wrecked several weeks earlier with dynamite. The 628-foot twin towers, the cables which supported the cars passing between them and the elevators cost more than $1,750,000 to erect.

    Chevron killed the 9/11 first responders and much of lower Manhatten with the cancer causing chemicals in the Twin Towers. Genetic proof now exists that Chevron pumped, produced and processed almost all of the cancer causing petrochemicals in the Twin Towers and that they knew their compounds caused cancer decades ago.

    Of course, antheor thing clearly visible is the vaporization trails.See the object just below the arrow in the center of the youtube video. It is leaving a vapor trail ALL THE WAY DOWN. Therefore this is not likely to be smoke from the explosions, but rather its own vaporization trail.I’m not sure if there is any other way to explain this, except that it is very hot–at least its outer surface area or a shell volume–and is leaving a vaporization trail all the way down. Much like a meteorite burning up in the atmosphere leaves a vapor[ization] trail. And the BS thermite isn’t hot enough to have caused the vaporization, and it’s not exploding here either. So there is no thermite going off. (I know the title is a joke, I am replying to the thermite sniffers out there.) The object itself or its outer structure must be very hot. Again, I welcome other explanations here. But I assert that that object was hit by the effects of a nuke. Obviously not right near the small hypocenter of the mini-nukes, else it would have been entirely vaporized like much of the towers’ contents, including people were–but it got hit with enough of the nukes’ effects to have been very hot. Certainly thermal rays (think of Felipe David’s outer “structure”/skin melted off, or maybe his most outer skin layer was vaporized as well, off his body), and maybe some gamma rays and neutron bombardment as well. Note: when I see a large section of the outer structure falling, I do not see a vapor trail going with that, even though it may have been exploded with a conventional explosion (thermite or other). So the object in question was likely closer to the center than such an outer chunk was. And it is STILL very hot some 8 seconds later unlike the large outer chunks that may have been exploded with a conv. explosive. The fact that some 8 seconds or so have gone by and we still see the vaporization trail, I think implies succeeding layers are “coming off” leaving vapor trails. Such objects may have even been later scanned for radioactivity and then quickly carted off to China or such. But that part is speculation. What seems certain is that object leaving a vaporization trail all the way down was VERY hot–most likely from a nuke. Recall Fire Engineering Prof. Barnett who saw steel having been vaporized “from extraordinarily high temperatures.” I assert that we are seeing this very phenomenon here even in the freeze frame above. And I think only nukes explain it! Again I welcome other explanations or comments.A.P.
