ITAR applies to all nations who want to buy American made items that happen to make "the list". Some states are prohibited, but all restricted in the sense that you need to get DoS approval in the form of export permits.
ITAR has really only been an issue since American troops have been in a combat situation, and it will persist for years to come. They have the technological and innovation edge, and don't want to lose it. However, there is nothing they have that isn't already out there, if you have the money, connections and knowledge of where to find it.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.
Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.
Never confuse freedom with democracy.
