They aren't, along with India and Pakistan.

Operating India?s eight unsafeguarded PHWRs in such a [conservative] regime would bequeath New Delhi with some 12,135?13,370 kilograms of weapons-grade plutonium, which is sufficient to produce between 2,023?2,228 nuclear weapons over and above those already existing in the Indian arsenal. Although no Indian analyst, let alone a policy maker, has ever advocated any nuclear inventory that even remotely approximates such numbers, this heuristic exercise confirms that New Delhi has the capability to produce a gigantic nuclear arsenal while subsisting well within the lowest estimates of its known uranium reserves.

No they're going about it relatively quietly. If you consider Palistine a country that is.

I'm not sure what you're getting at with this one.

who knows if the US sent Nuke Fuses a couple months ago to Taiwan was really a mistake or not.....
