"Should the U.S. limit technology transfer related to molecular manufacturing?"
Chris Phoenix: Molecular manufacturing will not be the same as nukes. Nukes come in a spectrum from massively destructive to awesomely destructive, and they're quite hard to build. MM weapons will be in a much broader spectrum, from humane restraints through less-lethal all the way to awesomely destructive. And many of those technologies will be dual-use, and all will be easy to build (given a nanofactory). These and other reasons imply that an MM arms race would be less stable than the nuclear arms race.
