Watching this video-documentary of the aptly titled "Anatomy of a Collapse" was so touching. It broke my heart to see the towers go down by the blatant-misdeeds of some brash - and otherwise sadistic - "Middle Eastern" Terrorists, who maliciously used these jumbo jets "kamakazee-style," which subsequently led to the unthinkable shedding of innocent blood. It's a day that will live in infamy. They had this pretentious notion they were being "martyrs" (with a sinister-ploy) who were hell-bent on destroying this country and the people to the core, just to fulfill thier selfish desires. Euphemistically speaking: they aren't martyrs...they're the "scum-of-the-earth" who are "cold-blooded killers," as far as I'm concerned. They had a conviction with a predisposition, conspiring to perpetuate this never-ending cycle of vile terrorist-acts on American soil. This is from the unscrupulous-minds from a couple of "good-for-nothings" with an ill will for Americans. They're jealous because of an amiable, capitalistic society, with the affulence, and the precious freedoms and liberties we enjoy as Americans. (It's pure nirvana, to have the opportunity to live in this country.) All of this is made possible by the ultimate sacrifices of the brave men and women, who have valiantly fought for the affirmitive. The sacred union of America, for which we earnestly strive to preserve, is what makes this country so great.
The bizzare turn of events which have transpired since 9/11, made an indelible mark on the world with which we live in. The ramifications that soon followed on 9/11: was the imminent grounding of all commercial and non-essential flights. The air-traffic in and around The United States, along with a staggering economy, was at a virtual standstill. "Anatomy of a Collapse" is the epic-saga of courage. This was so eloquently put together with the exclusive-interviews from world-renowned architects, heads of government and of major corporations. There are so many good people out there who made generous contributions to this story. The brilliant presentation has the narration in the background, giving it's viewers a "nuts & bolts" perspective on how The World Trade Center was built - from the ground up. And also, the ones who were directly involved in the building of the WTC explains to us in chronilogically bone-chilling detail, precisely where, when, and how the towers collapsed. It's an expose of sorts, were they put the blame on the structural-integrity (among other minuscule details) on how the Twin Towers couldn't withstand the intense heat of burning jet-fuel, which severely compromised it's dubious engineering merits. This video is a "must-have" for history buffs, or those of us with a propensity for watching a significant story unfold, like the tragic events which occured on September 11, 2001. May we all remember in our hearts, the fallen heros of that day. I'd like to express my boundless-gratitude to the NYPD, FDNY, The American Red Cross, President George W. Bush, NYC Mayor Rudolph Guiliani, N.Y. Governor George Pataki, among others, who had the undaunting task and the fortitude of selflessly volunteering their time - in such extraordinary circumstances - by ensuring the safety and the well-being of the great people of New York City.

For some reason this documentary seems to put that entire horrible day into perspective. To know exactly how those planes entered the towers, how they hit, why the fire was so intense, why people jumped, why the towers collapsed, seem to satify that angry, sad itch people have to just want to know "how" and "why". It is also touching at points, especially when irony is obvious when an engineer states that "even a 727 could not knock over the building". It's heavy stuff, but seems to answer some questions that are nagging at so many Americans.

This is a very powerful documentary. I saw it when it was on TV and so I bought it the day it was released on DVD. As of this writing I still have not watched it again. It's very strange how everything falls into place to make you realize that the Twin Towers NEVER had a chance. Watch it for yourself and you will awaken into a whole new world of reality.'s an EVIL world! God bless America and it's Allies!!!

Please note that the author above mentioned New Jersey's Fresh Kills. It is in Staten Island, NYC and NOT New Jersey. I live 3 miles away and also worked across the street from tower 2 (Liberty Street) in the BT building and was there that day.
