It's interesting to theorize the how of 9-11, but is just a distraction from current events.

Side note: jet B is essentially kerosene. Guaranteed it cannot have melted the towers.

There's no current event more important than 9/11.

You don't need to melt metal. Anyone who has done metal work will tell you that metal softens long before it melts. There is a reason you don't see a blacksmith hitting a pool of liquid metal, he's hitting a solid but soft piece of steel.

The metal in a building is not meant to be heated to red hot and made pliable.

Blacksmith shows with red hot steel he can bend a it with one hand.

Using a fire made from a limited amount of jet A or B?

Lol the blacksmith video... cmon now.

Significant energy is required to deform steel when it is not melted (even if weakened). This energy allegedly came from gravitational potential energy alone, which would result in a much slower acceleration than what was observed.

Objective facts are downvoated because this is in fact a pro-Islam thread and circle jerk.

The media has pushed 9/11 the best it can under a rug to be forgotten about. The truth reveals a much sinister side to the underbelly of US politics. If say mossad is proven to be responsible, and publicly denounced for such crimes, much would change globally, ie; the US' total distrust of the state of Israel. No more "muh greatest ally"

So many lies would be uncovered, careers destroyed, criminal politicians accused of treason, if the lies surrounding 9/11 were to be revealed, even today.

...you didn't mention war on Israel and the house of saud for some reason. We made a war in Afghanistan... we made a war in Iraq... we made a war in Syria.. 9/11 has made American wars a mundane event... its only fitting that we destroy Israel and Saudi Arabia

I won't even approach rather or not 9/11 is some fishy shit cause, it is... That being said your side note is idiotic and I tire of seeing it on the internet. I won't nitpick it being "essentially kerosene" taking that for the case kerosene burns in air peak of 3800F. Mild steel melts, ie liquifies, at around 2700F. So there's that, but it's actually WAY more one sided. Heating steel to a glowing red, 1300~F or higher, reduces its nominal strength by orders of magnitude. You can literally bend inch+ cross sections of steel BY HAND when heated to a mere glowing red. It's common practice in any industry with steel fabrication. For the 5 year olds, obviously you're not putting your hand directly on the 1000+ degree steel.

I have no issue with understanding that steel decreases in strength significantly when hot, that just makes sense. What I do have an issue with however is that there were clearly streams of molten metal coming out from one of the towers which would not have happened with jet fuel (this is what the video that OP posted is about). So heat making steel weaker is fine, but that does not explain the molten metal.
