maybe they could build in some kind of AA guns/.missiles to prevent any other events like 9/11 from happening again

Stupid name, but I respect the Americans for giving the terrorists the middle finger by buliding it taller the the WTC.

Didn't Taiwan have the tallest building in the world for a short while?

There you go, that's where it was. The Taipei Tower in Taiwan will hold the record as the world's tallest building after it's completion. Then after the Freedom Tower is complete it will take the record. I was trying to remember what country that was in.

shooting a plane with something is fine, but the annoying thing is that it still maintains its momentum, its trajectory starts to drop as the power supplied to the engines is no longer sustained.
while yes it may seem like a good idea, it actually wouldn't be that effective, best to stop them getting on board in the first place

i don't see this conversation getting very far, but i'd like to add that shooting a plane down over a city would be just as bad as a plane crashing into the building. probably the same amount of deaths the only difference being the intended target wasn't hit. either way terrorist scores a point. but while we're at it we should make a big ole donut shaped building so the next time the plane will just fly through it. better yet it rotates so it'll make their job even harder.

I do get a laugh out of the fact we just had 2 of the worlds tallest buildings knocked down so we do the smart thing...build something that is even bigger.



I think it will be cool when it is done and it has alot of symbloic meanings, like I once heard thier would be no shadown during like a certian time...

Yeap.....wqe did learn something...We figured up it is cheaper to find out what happned on 1 aircraft than two so we made it so if they try to do it agian they only have to go after 1 aircraft...we learned evern terrorist need life a little easir.




However isn't this tower going to have the problems the WTC had solved on the way it was built?
