      The 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower was hit by debris from the twin towers and burned for seven hours before it completely collapsed.
      There are many videos in the public domain.
      I think the conspiracy theories have been debunked.

        I think there is already an issue of forgetting 9-11 ! Americans are too damn accepting of people who have F’ed over us, thinking it will never happen again. We are seeing it in our government from the same people who gave us the gift of 9-11 ! From what these people are spoon fed since birth, I do not trust them to accept our culture, laws or ways of life in any manner, all of which conflict with their koran ! The two muslim congresswomen have already attempted to cause hostilities between us and Israel and we will see more of the BS as others are voted into our government. All of those righteous idiots who think there is no consequence to this culture in our world of government are insane ! We have opened the door to our most important aspect of our protection, government, and it will now be impossible to close. To those who say I am wrong, I can only say ‘kiss off’ !

            It looks like we are paying the health care for first responders for life. Some come forward even now with new conditions this long after 9/11.

              And we know who to thank for it too, don’t we ? From PH: “I’d like to forget it. Seeing it once was enough” ! And if we do forget it, as many are prompt to do, we WILL see it again ! The people who are responsible for this ‘somebody did something’ are not yet satisfied to sit on their past ‘gift’ to us, only planning their next one ! I for one trust none of them. others can make their own mistakes

                Islam is on the march again to gain World domination for their F/U so called religion. They have been stopped before over the centuries and they will be stopped again.

                  I am not too sure about that Jimbo, not since the demorats have accepted these two muslims into their midsts with open arms and high acclaims of such wonderfulness ! There is no place for righteousness over intelligence in our government, but that now appears to be the norm.

                    I am sorry PH that the inclusion of your words were the cause of your being upset. That was not a jab at you, only a way of pointing out the indication of a lack of future awareness by many. I can see your point as to affects of remembering the terrible happenings of 9-11, but forgetting them will not stop them from happening again. Maybe (hopefully) vigilance through remembering will ! None of us can change what took place, but forgetting it won’t either !

                      The slogans like "Remember the Alamo" and "Remember Pearl Harbor" etal were intended to remind those fighting the enemy what we were fighting for.
                      I can remember not too long ago hearing people ask, "What the Hell are we doing over there?"
                      They were referring to Afghanistan.
                      They have already forgotten Al Qaeda and Isis.
                      Perhaps they never saw the footage of Christians kneeling with their hands tied behind their backs while their heads were being cut of with long knives.
                      I think being reminded of that should make them sick (to their stomachs).

                        PigHunter - People who lost loved ones in the 9-11 attacks need no reminder.
                        It is aimed at people like you who don't give a crap!

                          PH - So you don't see the point. That sums you up neatly.
                          I suppose with your vivid memory, we should dispense with Memorial Day also.
                          I recall your posting on these pages a while back the suggestion that Veteran's Day should not be a national holiday, and that you should not have to kiss their asses just because they wore a uniform.
