Let's look at the passage you're working from, the one you submitted in post #1:
"I remember getting a call from the Fire Department commander, telling me they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, you know, 'We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is just pull it.' And they made that decision to pull and then we watched the building collapse."The fire couldn't be contained, they knew that, so the smart thing to do was to pull (the plug on) the operation and get the firefighters out before any more lives were lost.
Uhm, yes. Think about this for a moment. Have you considered the height of the building, the tower? How were they going to pull down the World Trade Center, with dynomite? with a crane? with a rope? It just doesn't make sense. They didn't have enough time to figure out how to pull the tower down, let alone get all the necessary equipment to do the job. So, if they did indeed pull it down as you assume, then how did they do it and with what?Originally Posted by kokomoj0
