Kriz_4, not sure exactly what would constitute "proof" for you other than Iran conducting a nuclear weapons test but then that really doesn't prove
that Iran made it either, maybe they would test one on behalf of NK or Saudi Arabia for all we know.
What can be "proved" is that Iran is going to a lot of effort and extreme expense to bury their so-called peaceful nuclear processing facilities.
Why? Isn't that odd when no other country has buried their peaceful nuclear facilities other than North Korea for instance.

These photos while offering no absolute proof do make for an educated guess (correctly) that the Iranians have a militarized nuclear program in
Steps you can see above with your own eyes along with an advanced missile program point towards it being rather more likely than not that Iran is
indeed running a weapons program.
The argument "Others have them justifies us having them" falls flat when one considers that the more countries with nuclear weapons - the more
likely their use becomes.
Why would anyone wish to aggravate an already ongoing problem of proliferation. In a slightly more perfect world no one should have nuclear weapons so
why add to the problem? why would one wish to allow this?
Why would anyone advocate more weapons rather than limiting countries in possession of them along with reducing existing countries stockpiles aiming
for total elimination.
I just don't get the "you have them, so should they" mentality - it seems suicidal to me. There are folks out there that want hasten an armeggeddon
To wrap up it is very apparent that a lot more than "NOTHING" is going on in Iran.
