The Dangers of Syria's Bio-Warfare Complex Should Assad Fall

(New English Review) Interview with Dr. Jill Bellamy van Aalst by Jerry Gordon - Israeli officials are concerned that the collapse of the government in Syria, like that of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi last year, could allow Syrian rebels to obtain the Syrian government's bio-weapons. Dr. Jill Bellamy van Aalst, a former consultant to NATO and CEO of Warfare Technology Analytics, noted that Jihad Makdissi, the Syrian Minister of Foreign Affairs, has confirmed that Syria possesses biological weapons. The trend we see is an increase in scientific cooperation as well as joint training operations. This applies as well to the Iranian BW complex, a primary contributor to the Syrian BW complex along with Russia and the DPRK (North Korea). Of increasing concern is collaboration between the Al-Assad regime and that of Sudan. The recent bombing of the Yarmouk industrial complex in South Khartoum is probably a good indicator of the level of concern Western allies and Israel have regarding Sudan's continued cooperation with not only Syria but Hizbullah. Middle East threat reduction requires a far more aggressive and comprehensive approach to deter the proliferation of biological weapons. Any new threat reduction paradigm must have a component wherein ultimately we take out their scientific teams as has been done in Iran with several of their nuclear scientists. We need to prepare to systematically take out sites in Damascus, Cerin, Tal Snan, Sjinsjar, Latakia, Palmyra, and many others, should the Assad regime fall. It is imperative that we don't let that opportunity slip by as we could immediately face an array of bio-chem armed terrorist organizations.
