Yawn. Baseless claims.
It was a dud.
It was a conventional explosion of 1 kiloton of TNT attempting to simulate a nuclear test. (Which can be had by purchasing around $100,000 in ammonium nitrate, nothing special.)
It doesn't prove anything because no one can conclusively state whether it was Nuclear or not.
Hence, moot point.
In fact, they've come right out and said the EXACT OPPOSITE:
"They do not have even the nuclear material, the raw unenriched uranium to develop one nuclear weapon if they decide to do so," ElBaradei said. "Even if you decide to walk out tomorrow from the non-proliferation treaty and you go into a lot of scenarios, we're still not going to see Iran tomorrow having nuclear weapons."
Pardon Iran for getting a little defensive and claustrophobic given the current situation in the Middle East:
And especially given America's propensity to use "mythical WMD's" as a pretext for war, which later turns out to be utter bogus nonsense... *cough* IRAQ *cough*
I don't know which world you descend from, but here, to be bound by a legal document you must have stated your intent to adhere to it and that is usually done in writing.
America started the Manhattan project SOLELY as an offensive measure to build a nuclear weapon to use on Germany and Japan during WW2.
Now it's trying to tell Iran that is it prohibited from acquiring even Nuclear Energy for CIVILIAN purposes at all.
Don't give me that crap.
Hypocrisy is the mainstay of American foreign policy. America tells the world to abide by an entirely different set of rules than the ones it abides by.

IDF planning largest-ever drill to prepare Israel for war
The Home Front Command is preparing to hold the largest exercise ever in Israeli history, scheduled to take place in about two months, in hopes of priming the populace and raising awareness of the possibility of war breaking out.
Should there be a war, Israel would have insufficient emergency and rescue response units, according to a senior Home Front Command officer.
Speaking with Haaretz, Col. Hilik Sofer, who is in charge of the Department for Population at the Home Front Command, said that "in wartime there will be insufficient Magen David Adom, rescue and chemical and biological warfare units. Even if we call up the reserves of the Home Front Command, we will have to rely on the population itself."
"We need to train for a reality in which during war missiles can fall on any part of the country without warning," he said.
- Why we suppose to assume that its only a drill?
