Military – US General warns of Syrian bioweapons, Iran threat
WASHINGTON – The top U.S. commander in the Middle East is warning Congress on Tuesday against efforts to scale back the Navy’s presence in the embattled region, saying threats from Iran and elsewhere will require more ships and maritime missile defense capabilities.
Marine Gen. James Mattis, head of U.S. Central Command, also said Syria has a “substantial” chemical and biological weapons capability and thousands of shoulder-launched missiles. Until now, the U.S. military has largely declined to describe the expanse of weapons that President Bashar Assad’s regime has at its disposal.
Mattis laid out his concerns in testimony prepared for Senate and House Armed Services Committee hearings this week. He and Navy Adm. William McRaven, head of U.S. Special Operations Command, are testifying before the Senate panel Tuesday. The testimony was obtained by The Associated Press.
“The stacked Iranian threats … of ballistic missiles, long-range rockets, mines, small boats, cruise missiles and submarines demand stronger naval presence and capability to protect vital sea lines of communication,” Mattis said.
At the same time, he described a deteriorating situation in Syria, fueled in part by Iran. The prospects of a civil war are rising in Syria, he said, but the “options available to address the situation are extremely challenging.”
U.S. officials argue that unlike the military campaign in Libya last year that ousted Moammar Gadhafi, a military campaign in Syria would be far more difficult, would not get the backing of the U.N. Security Council and would be hampered by a less coordinated opposition force.

Here’s a list of the top 5 threats biological weapons in Syria to be worried about:
5) Muslim Flu – History is filled with additional examples. Muslim Flu (actual a bacteria which throughout history has wave of epidemics, stretching over centuries, caused by the bacterium Mohammed pestis) first became visible in ancient Persia, now modern day Iran. Scientists say the disease was spread though Camel Lice that picked up the bacteria from Camel Feces and spead the Muslim Flu all the way to the Chinese hinterlands early in the Christian era. The effects were cataclysmic. In some epidemic waves, up to 98% of local populations died. The later effects on India and Islamic countries were often just as severe but disease was previously though to have been eradicated from the face of the earth until it was discovered to still be living in a benign form in the indigenous population of Syria who have built a natural resistance over the centuries. Still, intelligence operatives warn that Syrian locals can spread the Muslim flu to western troops who have no natural resistance or vaccination against the bacteria.
4) [Redacted] – Due to the highly sensitive way that intelligence officials learned about [redacted], US officials say they can not discuss provide any further details but warn they have reliable sources that ensure them that [redacted] has been weaponized by Iranian and has been loaded inside the warheads of thousands of hundreds of thousands of Syrian missiles.
3) LUE Bombs – Urine was known since the time of the ancient Egyptians to be a remedy for Lice, yet only had mild side effects on humans. According to the IAEA, it wasn’t until the Iranians mastered ground breaking nuclear centrifugal technology a few years that urine could actually be extracted from the lice themselves to produce a highly concentrated biological weapon, making LUE (Lice Urine Extract) the come in at number 5 on our list.
2) FPoCS – A unbelievable as it may sound, Flaming Piles of Camel Shit has ability to wreak absolute havoc on any Allied war planes or armored vehicle that dare venture to close. CIA analysts believe that Camel population in the Middle East will allow Syria to mass produce these weapons of Mass destruction at an alarming rate. Experts say that a direct hit from Flaming Piles of Camel Shit fire from Syria’s artillery cannons have the potential to leave a permanent shit stain on western military equipment, which could eventually require the US to spend so much money on their replacing their shit stained equipment that country could go broke.
1) Lice – While experts say LUE bombs will pose a formidable threat against an attack allied collation force, intelligence sources say the have learned from personal experience that the Syrian lice often attack foreigners like a plaque of locusts. A top US official refusing to be named said assets on the ground have experienced firsthand that damage that can be done and say that prior to any US troops entering the ground the entire area will first need to be deloused to prevent the foreign pests from being transmitted back to the homeland.
Oops, I forgot to create Wikipedia entries and plant news stories to give the appearance that the bioweapons I just made up are real.
What? I just did the same thing that the CIA is going to do/has already done.
Except the CIA will most likely plant stories about a “highly advanced” weapons based on disease and bacteria that exist naturally in Syria, because they are the most deniable for the Syrian government and easiest to cover up.
The story will be Syria knows they can’t compete in a war against the US and Israel using conventional weapons, so they have spent years developing one of the most highly sophisticated biological weapons arsenals in the world in collaboration with Iran and/or Russia.
Most likely the CIA, will say they found some Al-Qaeda list in Iraq, Pakistan, or Afghanistan somewhere that provides proof of direct ties to the Syria government who was giving individual “lone-wolf” terrorists biological agents.
The real list, which be all over the media soon enough, will most be sure to look something like this.
Botulinum toxin – the most powerful neurotoxin ever know
Highly Virulent Anthrax to be delivered in a missile or RPG warhead.
Camelpox – Seriously, unlike LUE bombs and FPoCS this one exists.
Why those? Simple, because the mass recognize them and will cause the most terror. In reality, if Syria did actually have bio weapons, the list would include much more exotic flavors.
