Nanotech and Sun Tzu: China's secret weapons?

Abstract:
Speaking of the United States, let me take molecular nano super weapons as an example of a scientific vision. Eric Drexler wrote his volume on nanotechnology in 1986, and in 2007 I received on the Internet its "20th anniversary edition updated and expanded" (630 pages). If successfully developed, this scientific vision could be the ultimate super weapon of today. The molecular nano weapon—a growing cloud advancing to its target and consisting of molecules acting as artificial microbes or viruses, capable of multiplying and destroying everything in their path, including their targets. On p. 355 of the 2007 edition of his study, Drexler states

A [nuclear] bomb can only blast things, but nanomachines and AI [artificial intelligence], can be used to infiltrate, seize, change, and govern a territory of a world.
