    Thinking about 9/11

    The conspiracy theory says that the US government was desperate to invade Iraq, and needed an excuse. So they put on this big show of multiple planes being hijacked and ramming buildings, in NYC and Washington DC.

    The planes did not actually cause the destruction, it was explosives planted inside the buildings prior to the fake attack.

    Problems, with that theory:

    1. They probably didn't need 9/11 as an excuse for invading Iraq. No one thought Iraq had caused 9/11. The actual excuse was WMD, which resulted from incorrect intelligence, which everyone (including Democrats) believed.

    2. There was no need for the airplane show. They could just have planted the explosives and said it had been done by terrorists.

    I have never believed the 9/11 conspiracy theories. Not because I trust the government. Because they don't make sense.

    There were suspicious things about the investigation, and maybe we were lied to (when are we ever not lied to by the government?). But the conspiracy theories still don't make sense.

    There are many flaws in the truther hypotheses, however, the biggest would be the fact that they claim Nano-thermite was deployed to cut the columns and beams at the impact points, yet being highly flammable, this material survived the intensity of the fires for over an hour. Obviously, this one wasn't thought through.

    Others have claimed the use of Nuclear weapons and space energy beams, but these nutters are too 'out there' to be taken seriously. Hell, they all are.

    Let's examine the reasoning: They wanted to invade Iraq so they came up with such a ridiculously Byzantine plan in order to do so. If so, why the WMD charade? Why invade Afghanistan instead? Others have suggested it was to invade Afghanistan. If so, they had all the pretext required to address AQ with the Cole attack and the bombings at the Kenyan and Tanzanian Embassies. Obviously, they haven't thought this through.

    The thing that gets me about it is the surprise every September that it didn't happen on the ninth of November, which is how Europeans read the numbers.

    Maybe conspiracy theories are meant to distract from the truth

    Of course you don't.

    You prefer to believe that known liars would suddenly start telling you the truth.

    You believe that the laws of physics were suspended by God Almighty on 911.

    Yeah mate, you're credible.

    I do not believe the government told us the truth. I don't think they tell us the truth very often. That does NOT mean the 9/11 conspiracy theory makes sense!

    There is more than one 911 conspiracy theory and none of them makes any sense.

    I never heard of one that made sense. Some people seem to think that if they don't trust the government they have to believe any crazy conspiracy theory. No, we should be skeptical of the mainstream official sources, and also of the alternative sources. That's what I try to do with medical information also. The mainstream stories might not make sense, but that doesn't mean the holistic alternative stories makes sense.

    It took me years to learn to read "9/11" as Sept Ninth. and I'm English born Aussie. BUT I still have to stop and say to myself "9/11" means SEPT eleven.

    I think the English made a very astute choice in favour of international solidarity. They had their "event" on Seven July - or July Seven - because the resulting 7/7 is palindromic. Saves confusion.
