If Saddam Hussein were still in power...

… he wouldn’t have to go as far as Niger or anywhere near that for for help in obtaining nuclear arms. He could get all the assistance he needed right next door, according to this AP report:

UNITED NATIONS -Iran is willing to provide nuclear technology to other Muslim states, Iran’s hard-line president said Thursday. Hours later, European nations renewed an offer of economic incentives if the Mideast nation would halt its uranium enrichment.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made the comment after talking with Turkey’s prime minister during a gathering of world leaders at the
United Nations, Iran’s state-run Islamic Republic News Agency said.

Those of you who were wondering what the United Nations is still good for can feel reassured – the exchange of nuclear information.
