I am not one for conspiracy theories.
I couldn’t give a shite whether Armstrong walked on the moon or on a stage set.
I couldn’t give a fuck if Elvis is living in a tent in the Gobi Desert, just so long as he isn’t singing any more. I fucking hate Elvis.
I must confess though that I have always had a few questions about the World Trade Centre business.
There are niggling little things that just won’t go away.
How come, when Bush was told that an aircraft had flown into the WTC, he just shrugged and carried on listening to a children’s story? Any halfwit would know there was something serious going on and would have excused himself from the proceedings, but not our George. He just carried onj as if nothing had happened.
OK, so Bush was a idiot so maybe that was just another of his incredibly bad judgment calls? But there is one aspect of the whole affair to which I have never found a satisfactory answer – how come all the buildings fell so neatly? I know a bit about civil engineering, as it is in the family blood, so to speak. For example, I know that one of the greatest problems any demolition expert has is to get a building to collapse in on itself. It takes precision placement of explosives and the timing has to be just right. If there is any error at all, the chances are that the building will fall sideways instead of vertically. Yet in New York several buildings fell, all very nicely in a heap without very much damage to adjoining buildings. Also I find it strange that both towers collapsed. The chances of both planes hitting their respective buildings in precisely the same circumstances are a statistical impossibility [almost] yet both towers collapsed in precisely the same fashion. If one tower had survived or if they had collapsed in different ways, maybe I wouldn’t be so unsure, but for both collapses to be virtually identical is hard to swallow.
There are many other questions I have about the whole business, but I just put it down to maybe not knowing the full facts, or something.
I dismissed the whole conspiracy theory and filed it away next to the John F Kennedy file.
Yesterday I came across a video on Captain Ranty’s site. I dismissed it as yet another crackpot theory, but then I watched it.
More fucking unanswered questions to add to the stockpile.
There are times when it is very hard not to believe in conspiracies.
