Towering Inferno in London <UPDATED

The burning tower may fall over soon …



Firefighters are battling a massive fire in an apartment high-rise Grenfell Tower in London


Initial reporting live from London says the building was retro-fitted with exterior decorative paneling that made the fire race up the sides of the building. Very like the Dubai Towers fire.

Dozens of similar blocks from the 1960s and 1970s refurbished in recent years have the same or similar new cladding – Experts have said a blaze like this in a tower block was ‘a disaster waiting to happen'”

UPDATEBBC – London fire: Tower victims ‘may never be identified’

“…Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said there was “a risk that sadly we may not be able to identify everybody”.

Asked about the number of dead, he said he hoped the death toll would not reach “triple figures”.

Why don’t they just ask the guys who identified all the victims of the plane that “crashed” into the pentagon?  They used a new system that works with no DNA and no remains.

Dear Americans…please from now on, insist on using UK architects and builders. Their skills in designing and erecting tall building that survive fires is been proven beyond doubt.
If you had done this the twin towers and WT7 would still be standing.

Thamnk good for UK building codes, the soriunding houses have been spared

many talking about building 7….
sadly, for those traumatized by seeing wha happened in person on 9-11 they are all re-traumatized. People calling for help being told to stay in place when firehoses are too short to go past 11 stories is horrific.

I see the Grenfill Tower attack as a terrorist one, an improvement on 9/11 where the costs, preparation, losses, and risks are kept at a miniuim for the terrorists

While America reacted to 9/11 as another Pearl Harbor, and went off to endless wars, this attack which was caused by little more than a spark, and has left the Brits bitterly arguing among themselves about who domestically is responsible.
