Madrid's Towering Inferno & The 9/11 Building Collapse Cover-Up
Infowars.com | February 14, 2005
A 32-story building burns for more than 24 hours and does not collapse. It does not collapse because buildings made of steel and concrete, despite what we are led to believe, do not typically fall to the ground because of fire, even a protracted fire as witnessed in Madrid. In fact before September 11th, 2001, no building had ever collapsed as a result of fire alone. In past events, high-rise buildings burned for as long as six days before the fires were extinguished and yet remained standing.

The media covering this event has been hovering on the edge of its seat, waiting for the building to fall, frequently commenting on the debris falling from the inferno implying that some tumbling sheet rock are an indication of the building's seemingly inevitable downfall. Their headlines reiterate this conclusion: Spanish Skyscraper Fire Subsiding, But Collapse Possible, Fears of collapse as fire ravages huge Madrid office block, Madrid skyscraper collapse feared as inferno rages. Ignoring objectivism, the reports have been clearly skewed to direct the public to belive in the new post-9/11 laws of physics:
"It is clear the structure has been damaged and has suffered high temperatures, and we cannot be certain that a pillar, girder or some other structural element will not collapse," Javier Sanz, fire chief for the Madrid region, told state radio. [read article]
The connection between this event and the collapse of WTC building 7 is impossible to ignore and the media are doing everything in their power to subvert reality and spin this event: All they have to do is remind us its going to collapse over and over again until the next news cycle and the event is forgotten in the back pages of the newspaper. At that point it won't matter if the building actually collapsed or not and the world will keep spinning according to the new post-9/11 laws of physics.
Massive Blaze Destroys Madrid High-Rise
LA TIMES | February 14, 2005
Firefighters struggled for nearly 24 hours before controlling one of Madrid's worst blazes, which reduced a 32-story office building to a blackened hulk of twisted wreckage.
Thick smoke and temperatures up to nearly 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit prevented firefighters from entering the Windsor building until late Sunday.
The fire, which slightly injured seven people, erupted Saturday night. Though badly damaged, the tower didn't collapse.
Madrid's Biggest Fire Destroys Skyscraper
keralanext | February 14, 2005
The biggest fire in Madrid's history gutted a 32-storey skyscraper in the Spanish capital's financial district on Sunday without causing injuries but raising fears the charred tower could collapse.
As scores of firefighters quelled the final flames inside the Windsor building almost a day after it caught alight, authorities said the spectacular blaze was probably started by an electrical short-circuit.
Officials said there was still a risk that Madrid's eighth tallest building -- now reduced to a blackened concrete skeleton -- could disintegrate as its structure cooled.
"It is clear the structure has been damaged and has suffered high temperatures, and we cannot be certain that a pillar, girder or some other structural element will not collapse," Javier Sanz, fire chief for the Madrid region, told state radio.
At its peak, the fire lit up the Madrid sky like a huge torch. Flames devoured the 106-meter-high building from the top down, raining burning debris on to the street below. Surrounding buildings were evacuated and roads blocked.
Seven firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation.
"We have confronted the most extensive fire that this city has ever had," Madrid Mayor Alberto Ruiz Gallardon said.
Spanish media on Sunday questioned how the blaze was able to devour the building without triggering fire alarms.
The building, which was one of Madrid's first skyscrapers, completed in 1979, had been undergoing building work on its upper levels. State radio said the privately-owned building had been insured for a sale value of 83 million euros in 2003.
U.S. accounting firm Deloitte & Touche, which has its offices in the building, said it would attend clients normally on Monday and reroute calls to other bureaux in Spain.
Streets, shops and offices in the area and some sections of the Metro network will remain closed until officials are sure the building is safe, Mayor Ruiz Gallardon said.
Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero visited the scene and offered the government's support to local authorities "so that we can overcome this situation as soon as possible and life in this area can get back to normal."
The blazing tower evoked memories for many Spaniards of the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center in New York.
It was the second drama to strike Madrid in less than a week, after armed Basque separatists ETA detonated a bomb near a major conference center on Wednesday, wounding 43 people. Madrid is vying with four other cities to host the 2012 Olympic Games.
Madrid Fire Re-opens 9/11 Questions: Why did the twin towers fall so fast?
Bellaciao | February 14, 2005
Prior to 9/11, no steel building had ever collapsed due to fire. Here is a photo of the smoking buildings. wtc2, was on fire for less than an hour when it collapsed.
Isn’t it odd, the wtc collapsed after an hour, and the black smoke indicates that fire wasn’t even burning hot. Now compare- this is the Madrid Fire, it burned for 10 hours and still has not collapsed.
Why did wtc2 only last an hour before collapse while the Madrid building burned throughout?
This is wtc7, another building near the twin towers, it had two isolated fires which can be see here.
This building, wtc7, also collapsed on 9/11, even though it was not hit with an airliner.

This is a recent fire in a Venezuelan skyskraper...
it burned out of control for 17 hours, yet did not collapse. http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/venezuela_fire.html
Why did this building stand after a huge, 17 hour fire- but wtc7 collapsed after sustaining only minor fire damage? Why hasn’t the mainstream media ever mentioned wtc7’s collapse?
Are these honest and reasonable questions, or am I a traitor for asking them?
