The West (including Israel) does not have many good options. In May 2012, Jordan and the U.S. held a large-scale, nearly month-long, military exercise with over 12,000 special forces from the United States and other countries, including Arab states – focused on military preparedness for emergency situations involving chemical and biological weapons in Syria. A follow-up study found, however, that 75,000 troops (!) would be needed to secure Syria’s chemical arsenal. Outright bombarding of Syrian chemical or biological arms stockpiles could result in significant environmental pollution.
