Iran's growing industrial and medical capabilities could enable the country to produce chemical or biological weapons if it chose to do so, security expert Anthony Cordesman said in two draft reports released this month (see GSN, Feb. 26).
"Iran's technology base is advanced enough ... so that Iran retains some capability to make chemical weapons, and it may have inactive or mothballed facilities.

Saddam Hussein paid $2million for a suitcase of weaponized smallpox stolen by a Russian defector who had worked on bioweapons projects. She was paid the money and then disappeared to South America.
This was independently verified by two defectors who did not know one another: one Russian and one Iraqi. No one knows where the weaponized smallpox is now - is it in Syria? Or is it in Iran?
The above information became known in the 1990s and is the reason the U.S. has stockpiled smallpox vaccinae.
For anyone wanting specific details go read the book, “Demon in the Freezer”, by Richard Preston.

Whatever weapons the Iranian dictatorship comes up with, thank the Kremlin. The same is applicable for Syria and Libya.
