Will any of that stuff be possible or already is? Also do you have any other links of this stuff you know?

Yes, all of those are possible now, except for the:

BioDesign Synthetic Organisms

That may come out probably by 2025-2030

The only weapon we're going to be needing is nanobots.You could build every weapon that list and even make them 10 times better with nanobots.Nanobots are the perfect weapon.

In the very unlikely circumstances of a Third World War (and I hope to god we'll never have one), I think the weapons would be so destructive that in the aftermath of the war, we'd have to completely rebuild the world, not just literally, but metaphorically, we will have lost what we had as a species, simply due to the destructive effects of future weapons which I'm sure will be developed.

Mass destruction weapons are impractical. Post cold war weapons tendentially became more and more efficient, as in capable of taking out a target without the need to wipe whole cities off the map. I think that laser defensive systems to intercept and destroy missiles will be common (the US is going to begin using laser weapons in 2014, while other countries already use them), just as common as long range, sthealth missiles, with a lot of the work being done by fighter jets and drones. And chemical warfare is also an option. Chemical warfare may evolve into nano-warfare, maybe some nano scale toxins that could lead to the gray goo scenario.

They might be, but they'll probably be one small country that always thinks they're a good idea...

Could nanobots be used as weapons? It would be just as efficient a weapon and much more selective than traditional nukes and germ warfare. Such a weapon(s) could render the two obsolete.
