Syria; 'Middle East will burn if we're attacked'

Bashar al-Assad is threatening a scorched earth policy in the event that Syria is attacked.

Amid reports of American preparations for a military operation in Syria, the war-torn country's information minister warned Saturday that that attacking his country would have dangerous consequences. "A mass of flames will ignite the Middle East," Omran al-Zoubi said in a television interview, adding that such an attack will not be a "picnic."

The minister conveyed a stern message from the regime in Damascus: "The American pressure will not help, it is a waste of time, and Syria will not withdraw from its fight against terror."

The minister further said that "the use of the Syrian opposition's of chemical weapons shows their incompetence and confusion." According to him, the regime has proof that the rebels made use of chemical weapons. 
What could go wrong?
