And the Pentagon was not melted, so what are you trying to say? You need to get a grip on logical thinking.
By the way, jet fuel can melt aluminum easily, and also steel. Do your research on adiabatic flame temperature and melting points. Stop repeating ignorance. But nothing was melted in this event.
Wow. "I didn't see anything to show what the cause was---but obviously the official explanation is all made up." She goes directly from an experience where she observed nothing, to a package-deal conclusion based on having observed nothing. How can observing nothing mean that anything else is "obvious"? Can no one see the ideological motive driving her account?
It makes one think that her only concern was for the lives of the people in the Pentagon, and not for any passengers obliterated in the collision. Easy to erase the passengers from concern by inventing the fantasy that they never existed.
It is a commonplace in accidents of all kinds that the direct participants can have widely varying accounts of what happened. This has been demonstrated over and over again in psychological experiments. In this case, evidence had to be sifted and sorted from the mass of building wreckage that was created. It was not just lying around, in large intact pieces.
As for jet fuel, the fact that one was not doused in it is not evidence against there being any. The impact fireball is pretty definite evidence of jet fuel being ignited by the collision. Why didn't it then burn more? Because it was extinguished by the building mass coming down on it. Got a puddle of burning gasoline? Just put it out with a few shovelfuls of dirt or sand---or pulverized concrete. Same principle.
You guys are grasping at straws. He says "a missile, a plane..." That is not recovery from a fatal misidentification, it is the recollection of someone on the scene who did not at that moment know what he saw---which was a plane that had been repurposed to be a missile. He could have said "a something..." and that would have had the same significance.
Is it that you find the truth (airplane full of passengers destroyed in a moment) so terrible, you have to dream up an alternate reality where it didn't happen...and then somehow interpret that "no kill" fantasy as being more terrible than the reality? You are turning your minds into pretzels.
It was the 757 in AA livery. A cruise missile would have been much smaller. The recovered engine turbine disk was much larger than that in a cruise missile. People on the scene identified the aircraft as a plane. A cruise missile would have been hard to see.
You are plugging in your expectation bias instead of objective analysis.
Not a cruise missile and the video is very blurry, due to exposure smear. Far too large for that. No cruise missile files that close to the ground. Wreckage was found, consistent with the airplane being a 757. The flight was tracked by radar from its origin at the airport. The collision was witnessed by a person who was flying above at the time. What you claim to know is only fantasy.
Well, in fact it landed in farmland where it was seen and the wreckage photographed. The scandal has to do with the firing of weapons at a neighboring country who is a NATO member. Any missile launch is deliberate. Cars don't start up and drive themselves. Neither do missiles launch except by human control. The fact that it was a Ukrainian missile and they boldly lied to blame the Russians is a patent of deceit, which eliminates the possibility of innocent accident. The Poles are not stupid enough to not understand all this.
I don't go along with the argument against impeachment. We have no patent on the future, so we must take steps according to what we have.
I agree that there are down sides for the Democrats so conspicuously devouring their own, but they thrive on thinking and saying two contrary things at once, so I don't expect they would care---nor would their supporters.
According to Dame Dambisa Moyo, a Zambian by birth, external aid to Africa only perpetuates a pusher-addict relationship, preventing independence and self-governance. She had to leave the country for fear of official reprisal because she was refuting the whole strategy of obtaining "donors."
No, I was thinking of God's clock. And, to be fair, no one escapes the entrance interview with St. Peter.
I appreciate the sentiment, but it takes more energy to send something into the Sun than it does to expel it from the solar system.
Silver makes a pretty decent substitute for lead in bullets, only 10% less dense, but more "slick." I've seen references to lead-silver alloy bullets. More expensive, of course. The Lone Ranger was not being entirely frivolous.
You guys love White Hat scenarios...how about Biden nominating Trump for VP?
I think it is a fever dream, but I can't resist stirring up the herd.
I got mentally whipsawed when I first misread her name as "McCain." (I guess I need my morning coffee when I read these things.)
I found out about it only this morning, with an odd reaction: equal parts pity and hope. I guess these surprises are what come when one has ceased to watch the evening news on TV. Completely unexpected, but on Breitbart News it was like a big ho-hum. No indication of cause of death (where, admittedly, "ran out of time" was probably the answer.)
It varies. I had a "sigmoidoscopy" (only goes partway up) under tranquilizer, and it was excruciatingly painful. I had later colonoscopies under anesthesia, and thank God for that. Maybe they call it "sedation." I don't care. I was out like a light and loving it. Very interesting and abrupt "cut" from prior consciousness to post-consciousness.
It was identified as a Ukrainian surface-to-air missile by the wreckage and serial numbers. There was no way it could have gotten there except by launch azimuth selection.
Who said you needed to hit anything on the ground accurately in order to create an incident to frame the Russians? (Surface-to-Air missile systems have been repurposed to Surface-to-Surface, e.g., the Nike Hercules system by the South Koreans.)
Ever had a colonoscopy? It may take a while to shake the aftereffects of the anesthesia. (In that case, I simply cannot forbear to call it "anusthesia.")
Surface-to-air missile engagements with large systems (not MANPADS) are frontal or near-frontal engagements. A tail chase is a rotten way to bring down a plane. The system is driven by computer, which is connected to the tracking radar---which is looking toward the direction of attack, not over its shoulder. About the only human control available is to select a target and commit to engage. No "punching in of coordinates." (I once worked on the propulsion and system [guidance] engineering for the U.S. ROLAND 2 anti-aircraft missile.)
The idea that it was an accidental shot is, frankly, ridiculous. Not helped by the Ukrainian initial attempt to declare it a Russian missile (disproven by the serial numbers found), and the feeble suggestion that it was a runaway. The Poles know better. They were keeping circumspect until it developed there was no benefit from it. It is interesting how the Poles announce themselves as Ukraine's best ally, but in all other respects they seem to despise Ukraine.
It's beginning to look like your best bet for eternal life is to be declared dead by Ukraine (repeatedly).
Kind of old news. This was known within days of the event. It was circumstantially impossible for it to be a mistaken shot or a Russian missile.
There was no way it could have been a "misfire". Russian air attacks were coming from the south and south-east. Any intercepting missile would have had to been fired in that direction. The missile in question had to be fired in the direct opposite direction (north-west) to land in Poland.
MSM relies on people not knowing where anything is.
I think the history is that Ukrainians (a people, not a nationality) lived in that region of Poland (Galicia) originally. Similar to the inhabitants of Transylvania originally being in Austria-Hungary, not Romania.
Basically, regarding the U.S., I agree. I have family in Africa, however, so the matter has some closeness for me. And whoever and however anyone looks at us, we should observe some decorum in how we look at others.
And what did you hear? My telepathy is worth shit, these days.
