Syrian President Bashar Assad is warning there will be retaliation against the U. S. for any military strike launched in response to a chemical weapons attack.

In an interview broadcast Monday on CBS’ “This Morning,” Assad says, “You should expect everything.”

Asked by anchorman Charlie Rose to elaborate, Assad says, “You should expect everything. Not necessarily from the government.”

He said the U.S. would “pay the price if you are not wise with dealing with terrorists.”

President Barack Obama is seeking an authorization from Congress to punish Assad for an Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack that the administration maintains Assad ordered.

Assad denied that, saying his soldiers were “in another area” at the time. Asked about the case the U.S. is arguing, Assad said, “nothing has been presented.”
