That isn't necessarily true.

While I agree that America has become the global hegemon, it didn't actively seek to subdue the world beneath itself. After the collapse of the USSR, the only power that could challenge America had collapsed. So, when times became turbulent, people turned to America to solve their problems. Yes, America may have gone into the Middle East for stupid reasons, but not for colonial reasons. Yes, America effectively controls the world, but it's still far from colonizing it.

I'd also like to note that this idea is akin to the idea that 911 was a false flag (and that the towers were actually hit by model 767 and 777 cruise misleading created by a secret US contractor called Boeing).

Ok, just to settle things, I found an acceptable definition of colonialism.
the policy or practice of acquiring full or partial political control over another country, occupying it with settlers, and exploiting it economically.
So, if what America has done in the Middle East fits this definition, then that is what it is.
I'm honestly debating the occupying with settlers portion, if it is more irrelevant for modern control then that complicates the issue.

Looks like someone beat us to the rational answer.

However, I still disagree with the idea that the US is active pursuing colonial interests.

Has anyone yet come up with a good logical explanation for the collapse of the Solomon brothers skyscraper?

I may be a little late to the party but I would like to contribute my two cents. I have an uncle that was at 9/11 and was in the Iraq war. Now, in his own words "they are not equal." When he talked about 9/11 or any act of terrorism he uses the word "cowardice"; meanwhile with the the US engagements over the years he uses "dignity." The main difference between the two is that terrorism strikes from the shadows and the main target is infrastructure/symbols of power. When the US engages in conflict at home (he is a police officer) and overseas the attack is never a slide blow, granted we will use superior technology to our advantage to protect our servicemen, it will never come truly "out-of-the-blue."

This is a good way to put it

In November 2008, NIST released its final report on the causes of the collapse of 7 World Trade Center.[7] This followed NIST's August 21, 2008, draft report which included a period for public comments.[8] In its investigation, NIST utilized ANSYS to model events leading up to collapse initiation and LS-DYNA models to simulate the global response to the initiating events.[52] NIST determined that diesel fuel did not play an important role, nor did the structural damage from the collapse of the Twin Towers or the transfer elements (trusses, girders, and cantilever overhangs). The lack of water to fight the fire was an important factor. The fires burned out of control during the afternoon, causing floor beams near column 79 to expand and push a key girder off its seat, triggering the floors to fail around column 79 on Floors 8 to 14. With a loss of lateral support across nine floors, column 79 buckled – pulling the east penthouse and nearby columns down with it. With the buckling of these critical columns, the collapse then progressed east-to-west across the core, ultimately overloading the perimeter support, which buckled between Floors 7 and 17, causing the remaining portion of the building above to fall downward as a single unit. The fires, which were fueled by office contents and burned for 7 hours, along with the lack of water, were the key reasons for the collapse.[7]

And like that, the conspiracy theorist is beat.

Good job on the research.
