Syria waves the WMD stick, like Iran?


Syria has made some pleonastic statements recently that it promises not to use WMD’s unless attacked.

It’s hard to fathom whether this could refer to defensive WMD’s on its own soil, against rebels, or handing them over to terrorists, such as biological, chemical, perhaps even EMP weapons, as is feared from Iran.  It sounds as though it would be much less capable of deploying anything than Iran or North Korea.  Yet, the statement is provocative.

Sam Nunn’s NTI has a guarded statement on Syria's capabilities as of 12/2011 here.
