January 19th 2017: the prestigious high-rise building in Tehran starts to burn and then collapses. It was 17 storeys high.

Does this negate the important 9/11-truth axiom, ‘No high-rise steel-framed building had ever collapsed due to fire’?

Or, can you clearly see some demolition process here, with explosives going off?

Architects and Engineers for 911 truth – who have 2,900 members – have come out and endorsed the explosives theory. Let’s quote them:

At around 8:00 AM that day, the upper floors caught fire and burned for a little over three hours before a series of explosions rocked the building. The structure then completely collapsed to the ground…The day after, we issued a statement, based on our analysis of the available videos, urging the Iranian government to investigate the possible use of explosives. One month later, after compiling more evidence, we published a report recommending that investigators consider explosives and incendiaries as the primary hypothesis for the building’s destruction.

The Iranian government is loth to support this view – perhaps for understandable reasons – averring that fires brought it down. 

Here is an Iranian firefighter’s view, Mr Maleki: “The extinguishing process was going pretty well. We were at the end of our job. Everything was under control, then all of a sudden, and unexpectedly, two or three major explosions took place in the upper floors.”

Here is another one, Mr Kamani:

But where I was high up there, I would hear small explosions and to my amazement, behind every one of the windows there was a gas canister…. I can’t remember clearly, but after the white smoke started coming out, there was a massive explosion to the point that it shook me. And there, after a couple of minutes, the fire returned…. After that they ordered us to evacuate the building…. All of this that I’m recounting took place in two or three minutes at most, and suddenly the whole building started to shake and then I saw that the building collapsed….

Molten iron was found glowing in the rubble afterwards, even a week later:

Fire has still been raging from under the rubble as clearing giant machines laboriously carry the debris including large slabs of steel; rescuers say nothing had been found partially intact, as the intense heat from burning of the fabrics and other inflammable materials had but melted down everything including the most resistant steel.” 

Huge quantities of molten metal were found in the debris: (Iranian news):

During the debris removal operation, the Iranian news media reported large amounts of molten metal being found in the
debris. The Mehr News Agency and Press TV wrote: “As the ruins removal process reaches final steps, excavators and mechanical equipment pull out a layer of molten iron from the rubble. The volume of molten metal underneath goes beyond imagination….” “[T]he operation slowed down on Thursday as workers found a large amount of molten metal gathered in the location,
spokesman for the crisis committee Jalal Maleki said.” Also, numerous videos show the observed molten metal being
dug up.

Thomas Green:

This video (also attached) shows molten metal in the clean up of the Plasco Building collapse. Normal office fires can’t produce that

Thank you Thomas Green! That is the bottom line. Smart-ass sceptics, eat your heart out.

Actually, let’s quote Thomas Green a bit more here: 

“your video is uploaded January 27th, a full week after the fire.”

 – that is alluding to the above video. It’s one week later! 

Iron was never melted until the blast furnace was invented. Please don’t make up things like that. You don’t get temperatures above 1500 degrees celsius from office fires. Thermite could explain it. What else?

– He’s replying to some idiot sceptic who’s saying that a burning building can get hot enough to melt iron – and have it glowing a week later!

Here is the A&E comment on the molten metal, from their report a month later:

At this time, there appears to be no plausible fire-related scenario where large amounts of molten metal found in the debris could have been created during or after the incident.”
