structural damage

The Collapse of a 47-Story Building - WTC7

At 5:20 p.m. on the evening of September 11th, 2001, the Salomon Brothers Building, also known as 7 World Trade Center (WTC7), the northernmost building on the World Trade Center complex, uniformly collapsed in 6.5 seconds. It produced a rubble pile with a radius similar its original dimensions and approximately seven stories tall [1].

"But WTC 7 had structural damage, that is why it collapsed!"

Is anybody else getting sick of the, "WTC 7 had structural damage" argument. Look at these two pictures. One is of the Federal building in OKC, it is almost half-way gone and yet it did not collapse. The Damage to WTC 7 does not even come close, yet it fell onto itself in 6.5 seconds. So how did WTC 7 fall? Structural damage...? I don't think so.

Absolutely demolished, yet still standing

Not even a significant percentage of the building is demolished, and as anyone with a 5th grade education knows if this building collasped due to this structural damage than it should have fallen towards the wound, not straight down in 6.5 seconds.
