I generally view ISIS as a nuclear threat the same way I view North Korea. They won't be. North Korea could have easily gotten a nuclear bomb or several from their friendly neighbor China, but they didn't (I highly doubt it was in respect to foreign affairs, China literally flooded a ton of troops over the Korean border to keep Korean communists from being wiped out) and now that they're at such a pathetic standing in world politics they won't get it from anyone and are trying (and failing) to make one of their own. The minute we get an inkling that North Korea could possibly be a nuclear threat, the US will tell the UN, the UN will go "Yeah we should maybe do something about this" and boom, no North Korea.

...after a rather long war most likely because North Korea has an oddly large military force.
