    I would say it is possible that the Koreans supplied the weapons grade uranium for the test. After all designing a nuclear weapon is not that difficult. The hard part is getting the proper material that can reach critical mass. Iran should already have nuclear weapon designs but they have no models on how to test them in simulation like the nuclear powers have.

    Of course the Koreans would have charged a pretty penny for the uranium and for the test. Iran surely would not have publicized this arrangement since they have no weapons grade material to put in their nuclear bombs/warheads they probably already have made.

    There seems to be a difference of opinion on how far Iran has gotten in its efforts to acquire nuclear weapons. Panetta's opinion seems to be that Iran seeks to become a nuclear threshold state at this time, that is, to acquire all the components and technologies necessary to build nuclear weapons so that if the decision is made to build them, Iran could have nuclear armed missiles targeting cities in the ME, Europe and the US east coast within a few months, but Panetta doesn't believe that final decision has yet been made. Ruhle, on the other hand, believes believes he has evidence the final decision to build nuclear weapons was already made in 2010 and that Iran had already tested a nuclear in North Korea in that year.

    Since Obama has committed the US to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons by any means necessary and Hillary stated in testimony before Congress that the US was committed to preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear threshold state, the only question in dispute among the western allies is how long sanctions should be given to work before military force is used.
