I've thought for a long time that much of this discussion was wrong because Saddam's wealth would have allowed him to buy a nuke. So with Libya and North Korea pushing towards the goal of nukes, Saddam didn't have to produce a nuke to get one. Libya as we all know gave up its pursuit, but North Korea would no doubt sold him one for the right price. As long as he wanted one, had the money to buy one, and had a producer willing to sell him one, he was likely to end up with one.

You make a good point. So, he was covered on all bases, with the knowledge to make nuclear weapons and the money to get them.
