An Important Question?

We all know that Iran is developing nuclear energy.  Many people believe Iran will use it to make nuclear weapons. In fact from conception that has been the warning all along from war hawks, the American and Israeli  governments.  Now, if say a country such as Japan was the only country on Earth that had the capacity to manufacture the nuclear vessel for such a reactor, would they be considered an ally to Iran because they built it for them?  Would Japan have to answer for their part in supplying the means for which such a reactor had been built, especially if atomic weapons were made from the plutonium?

I was reading about nuclear technology today, especially how it applies to thorium reactors, but I learned a strange fact. Apparently, Japan is the only place on Earth that the nuclear vessels can be manufactured. So why is it OK for Japan to supply the most difficult component to Iran, if Iran wants to destroy Israel? Should not Japan be scolded and sanctions held against it in order to avoid the damn stupidity and hypocrisy this entire  event plays out?

March 13 (Bloomberg) -- From a windswept corner of Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island, Japan Steel Works Ltd. controls the fate of the global nuclear-energy renaissance.
