what would you sugest caused the molten metal described in the rubble pile? I'm not claiming you are wrong I'm just curious.
exsplosives placed on the concrete columns would account for the lack of

You can't have both.
Thermite doesn't explode so you have to dismiss those claims of explosions.
Thermite won't shoot steel beams out of the building and down the street.
Thermite requires containment boxes around the beam to be burnt through.
Thermite can be set off by simple office fires.
Explosives blows out all the windows in a series of staccato booms and rocks the neighborhood.
Explosives won't leave micro spheres in the dust of 911.
Explosives and detonation devices have an expiration date.
Explosives can be dislodged and not go off at all by the airplane explosion.
Choose your poison and show us proof.

As I understand it, C-4 detonated next to concrete vaporizes the water suspended in the concrete, leaving only the dust and aggregate.

Problem is, there are no demolition explosions in the videos as WTC 1, WTC 2, and WTC 7 collapsed, and it would have been impossible for properly prepare each occupied building for explosive demolition without detection. The 1993 WTC 1 bombing is an example of what happens when a building is not structurally pre-weakened.
I would like to return to your original posting about the idea of thermite ot being usable as an explosive, and you request for proof of my position.
You see almost anything which will burn rapidly, will do so and displace a certain volumn of space with it's smoke and residual fumes. If this material is confinded, it will still burn and expand. The tighter the confindment , the stronger the expolsive effect.

Water in concrete isn't a suspension either. It chemically reacts with the major components of the cement, and it's molecularly bonded. It can't dry out fall off or be shaken loose. Pulverized concrete isn't Portland cement, you'd have to pump in a huge amount of energy in the form of heat to calcinate it back to its original form.

I guess it is too late for these guys:
to read your posting.
It could have saved them some time and money.
