At least, that’s what seems to have happened back in 2010. The question is whether they tested them on their own behalf, or whether one (or both) was for another country, like…. oh… say… Iran – just to pick out a country at random.
If true, I think that you can understand the implications of this. First, if at least one of these tests was for Iran, we can safely assume that the Iranians already HAVE nuclear weapons. Second, if so, it’s far too late to do anything about them. And the third implication?
Iran with nukes? We are truly in a world of hurt.
Furthermore, the days are ticking away. 2014 is coming and the Mahdi hasn’t shown himself, yet. In the minds of your average Iranian mullah, there’s nothing like a few nukes to help bring the Mahdi along. Nothing like it at all.
Here’s a badly translated (via google) article that appeared in yesterday’s Welt am Sonntag.

Data show that took place in North Korea in 2010, two secret nuclear tests. Several intelligence agencies believe: at least one of them was an Iranian.
For years, accused the international community to Iran , to operate alongside his civilian and a military nuclear program. Although there are increasing signs of such a military program, but Tehran remains obstinate in his statement to pursue only peaceful uses of nuclear energy.
Still gives so many Western arms control experts believe these assurances. Despite numerous indications ultimately applies to Iran, the presumption of innocence. Only when a nation has conducted a nuclear test, its military intentions were clearly demonstrated. And Iran have never been definitely a test.
Report of the prestigious journal “Nature”
But what if Iran had already tested a nuclear weapon? Export and this not about Iranian territory, but where, regardless of world opinion still remains to be nuclear tests carried out so far and where we were always ready, nuclear expertise and technology for hard currency – in North Korea?
Has triggered this debate a report by the prestigious journal “Nature” last month. Herein are presented findings of the Swedish nuclear physicist Lars-Erik De Geer, of the Swedish Defence Research Agency in Stockholm studied radioisotopes in the atmosphere. De Geer had analyzed data that had been on various stations in South Korea, Japan and Russia on behalf of the organization collected the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBTO).
