So no lateral forces great enough to operate on dust can be generated by the collapse of a building huh?
Once again for the idiot: hundreds of millions of kg of dust (even though it was not
all "dustified") is still 100's of millions of kg.
You are so full of yourself -- but you are still wrong.
The WTC rubble pile was only about 6 stories high. If you study the photos you will see no concrete -- why? Because there was none.
Despite the fact the WTC was made up largely of concrete --
So what happened to the concrete? Simple. It was converted to dust. The dust piled up all over lower Manhattan.
A mere collapsing building cannot do this. Look at the photos of concrete buildings that have been destroyed by an earthquake -- and you will see the floors pancaked one on another.
There was no pancaking on 9/11. The concrete was converted to dust -- and this took a vey large amount of energy.
The only thing that could do this is explosives.
