Well piling up two thousand tons of TNT and exploding them all at once is not that easy either. So I would assume that they built at least a low yield nuclear explosive device. Of course nobody really knows what the NKs have or dont have. If they dont have any nuclear bombs though, why is everybody freaking out about them.
I agree that exploding with a correct timing the whole 2K tons is not an easy task, but I wonder how much more easy it is to do that in respect of actually buillding a fission device.
As on why everyone is freaking at them, that's a good question, even if I am still trying to understand why everyone was freaking out at Saddam Hussein....
I can't figure out why everyone WASN'T freaking out at Saddam much, much sooner.
1.Genocide of better than a quarter million of his own people.
2.The use chemical weapons both to commit genocide, and wage war on his neighbor.
3.Harboring, protecting and employing terrorists.
4.Annexing another sovereign UN member state.
5.Pursuit and development of a nuclear weapons program at least up until Israel bombed it.
Saddam was one of the absolute worst and most violent tyrants our world had seen since Hitler and Stalin.
