I would believe that, unlike N. Korea, there are some rational people in positions of authority in Iran. They clearly must realize that a nuclear armed Iran poses a considerable threat to the country's survival. If the Iranian radicals were foolish enough to use their nuke or even give it to terrorists, the retribution would be very harsh and could lead to Iran itself being nuked or at the very least bombed to oblivion with conventional weapons.
