In an exclusive interview with CBS News’ Charlie Rose, Syria’s President Bashar Assad denied that his regime used chemical weapons and issued a warning that the U.S. should “expect everything” in response to any strike on Syria.
The White House is pushing Congress this week to approve punitive military strikes against the Middle Eastern nation, in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in which more than 1400 civilians were killed. Assad said repeatedly that the U.S. doesn’t have "a single shred" of evidence that his military was behind the attack.
If the U.S. does strike, what would retaliation by Syria look like?
