Former CIA chief warns: U.S. 'at war' with Shariah
Robert James Woolsey, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, told a break-out session of the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., that America needs to stop being so politically correct and realize it is "at war" with those who would spread Islamic, or Shariah, law.
"We have to understand that we are in a war here ‚Äď certainly with the terrorists; certainly with Al Qaida; certainly with Hamas and Hezbollah," Woolsey said. "We're also at war, with no choice of our own, with those who want to, over the long run, impose Shariah [Islamic law] upon us.
"And it is one of the toughest fights we have ever had or will have," he continued, "because Americans are used to religious liberty and not criticizing one another's religions."...
Ephes. 6:12-13 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Daniel 7: 25-28 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.
Again Neil you only like it when you are right.Anyone questions you its only good if its done your way. You always tell use about your ideas of science??? The link the other day shows how people are easly dupe into chasing untrue stories instead of the real one. Watching this one easyly show between the two the tricks they use on the masses..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4WLunM-LC4 I believe people are waking up to satan devices that he uses on men. For Gods say be not ignorant of his devices. The global conspiracy is getting biggers every day but so many dont even believe in 1 though the Word of God plainly teaches it. Watch the new "september clues" I believe they got the right peices as to how and what was done. Why they did it is too BIG for us all God is and will deal with it in His time.There were no planes that crashed into the any building they were all missle prbebly jassm missle which looks like a small plane. I know this sounds wacko to alot of people. Its only because they believe TV before Gods ordained mind. Noses let alone weak wings of a plane still intact after it hit a building front and back built to stand pounding wind and accidental planes? Your horse shoe idea is not thought through? You believe as I did for years tv fakery and trust in fellow man
Neil wrote: Indeed the topmost stories did fall, crushing the lower floors along the way. It's called "progressive collapse." If you still doubt that heat can weaken metal w/o melting it, consider blacksmiths. They don't melt iron to form horseshoes, they merely heat it to make it ductile enough to allow forging or bending.
And Building 7? Also what has a horse shoe and blacksmith got to do with it, it irrelevent as you like to say when you feel like it.You dont know everything. Progresive collapes? its just a word for dumb people. For that to have remotely to happen the fire would have to be even over the whole area for the whole 3 of the building to fall neatly in one place and to be more so where the lifts are.x 2???? Shawly building 7 show you something isn,t right let alone for 2 bigger building to fall minuets apart and both had MASSIVE explosions in the basement.

Wow! That would mean each plane that hit the WTO towers struck with over 85 times the kinetic energy that the B25 crash inflicted on the Empire State Building, if my math is right. (E=1/2MV**2). And then there's all that chemical/thermal energy from the burning jet fuel on top of that.

You told me a few months ago, but I don't mind hearing it again. In the early 1950s my dad HAD to ride in one (B25) since the AFB he was stationed at (Lackland?) had no other means to get him to his next assignment on time--except for a few old WWII-era Mitchell bombers. He said it was the NOISIEST plane ride he'd ever been on.
OH!...I think I know why he had to settle for a B25. That was either 1950 or 1951, and most of the military transport aircraft at that time had recently been deployed to West Germany in support of The Berlin Airlift, and probably hadn't been completely re-deployed following that very historical event.
Good points. B-25 max T/O weight 41K lbs.; B767 maybe 10X that. B-25 was probably cruising in the mid-100's; the 767s were said to be doing about 440. 14 people killed in the ESB incident.
BTW, I got to fly in a Collings Foundation B-25 while it was in Tucson. Expensive but worth it, though VERY noisy inside - good thing they supplied ear protection. I suspect he flew at minimum cruise to reduce stress on those old R-2600s. Cost: $325 for 30 min. flight.
I was hoping (briefly at the time) that the twin towers would survive, just as the Empire State Building survived the impact of a B-25 Mitchell Bomber which flew into it during WWII; but this time the planes were so much bigger, heavier, fuel-laden, and traveling at greater speed that it was just too much for the WTC towers to handle. Also, I'm told that the WTC towers relied more on exoskeleton design to support their weight rather than internal girders like the ESB does, which helped the latter maintain enough structural integrity to survive the impact from the B-25.
Also, if memory serves, the tower that was struck later on collapsed first because it was struck lower down; which would make perfect sense to any enginnering student familiar with free body diagrams (and, I suppose, whose mind is not twisted by conspiracy presuppositions).
There was more building-mass above the second strike which caused greater stress, which caused it to fail first.
Find a YouTube video or TV documentary of a blacksmith at work (maybe on "How It's Made" on cable TV). They just heat the piece until it's orange-hot, then pound away until it bends they way they like. No need for steel mill blast-furnaces here.
I'm not sure the building really turned into fine-grained powder, but even if so, it would not surprise me considering the incredible mass of stuff collapsing into a limited area. And controlled demolitions do not turn all of a building into powder anyway, though there is dust
Iron melts at 2797F. Flame temperatures, for a given fuel, vary widely depending on conditions. Obviously the small camp or home stove flame can't get it hot enough to even distort metal easily, let alone melt it. This is why blacksmiths use something bigger than that for their fires. The 9/11 fires were building fires, started by the jet fuel at impact; combustible materials in the buildings, burning for almost 2 hrs (plenty of time to burn through fire-resistant materials), took care of the rest.
Another neutral article on structural steel yielding in a fire: Effects of fire on steel structures So I would prefer the testimony of professional civil engineers over hearsay.
I noticed that iron and steel have roughly the same melting temperature. Do iron horseshoes combust into powder and turn to molten metal when you put them in a fire, or just bend?
Then I wonder, if a fire can only bend iron but not combust it into fine powder and molten metal, I wonder what could create such an apocolyptic destruction of a building.
I like to look at lots of pictures from other 12 year olds and waste my time and I saw many pictures of steel buildings on fire for many hours that never melted or combusted into fine powder. Even my daddy's oven that we use for camping is made out of stainless steel. It never melted or turned to fine powder and makes a good hot dog!

I hope someone is listening and will assist you in this, it may be that there are none who have preached in your language and I find computer translations wanting. I will pray with you that the Lord provides. I could suggest that if reading English is easier for you? that you find a book of sermons or other solid teaching. It has sustained my soul. I'd recommend a book and teacher "Christ the Way, the Truth and the Life" by John Brown/Wamphary published by Soli Deo Gloria also the sermons of Thomas Manton on Psalm 119 or easier reading "The Works of Christopher Love" same publisher I believe.
Irrelevant. It is sufficient for the steel to be *weakened* by fire for the structure to fail.
"If the steel framing is not protected by fire-resistant materials, heat from the fire will raise the temperature of the steel above its yield point. Once the steel yields, it will no longer be able to carry the loads it was designed for, and deformation or collapse of the structure will occur."

Wow, you used a website to respond; is your response real? So much for your logic. BTW, A gas fire from air fuel doesn't melt steel. Our USAF fire fighters practice everyday putting out fires by drenching mocc steel aircraft w/ fuel. The steel in these mocc aircraft never burn, let alone melt. No building ever in history has colaped in its own footprint, along with every floor in its own path all at the same time; this only happens with professional demolitions. You and your america have been duped. Your sense of reality has been used against you, because your sense of reality is based upon your little cosmic TV world. Your american ethocentric view along w/ your dispensationalist perspective have blinded your mind from reality. This country may well fall from domestic enemies, and not foreign enemies. It is a realistic reality or possibility. Happy dreams.
