I can't speak for others, but my opinions are the result of reasoning based on my knowledge of engineering, military science, and the theoretical potential of molecular manufacturing. If you think my reasoning is flawed,
show me where.

However, if you really want to examine the issue in detail I think we would need to fill in some background first. It appears that we have different fundamental assumptions about the relevant technologies and how they work.
