Preventing A WMD 911 - Syrian Chemical and Biological Weapons Transfer to Transnational Terrorist Groups

Global law enforcement community moves into crisis response, to prevent a WMD 911, with Syrian Chemical and Biological Weapons transfer to transnational terrorist groups.  Focus on NCTC Terrorist Groups, Counter Extremism in the Global War on Terrorism, surveillance, containment and control in 193 UN member countries.:
Taking The Lead
UNIFIL: UN Resolution 1701 - Terrorist Groups Expand Operations

Originally, UNIFIL was created by the Security Council in March 1978 to confirm Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon, restore international peace and security and assist the Lebanese Government in restoring its effective authority in the area. The mandate had to be adjusted twice, due to the developments in 1982 and 2000.

Following the July/August 2006 crisis, the Council enhanced the Force and decided that in addition to the original mandate, it would, among other things, monitor the cessation of hostilities; accompany and support the Lebanese armed forces as they deploy throughout the south of Lebanon; and extend its assistance to help ensure humanitarian access to civilian populations and the voluntary and safe return of displaced persons. -- UNIFIL: United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon


Israel, Middle East and International community abandoned in the global war on terrorism. -- IDF: Israel in range of nearly 65,000 Hezbollah, Iran, Syria rockets: Hezbollah has some 60,000 rockets and missiles, is developing drones, sea-to-air missiles, IDF top brass tells Knesset committee. -- IDF: Israel in range of nearly 65,000 Hezbollah, Iran, Syria rockets: Haaretz. May 2012.

Wounded Syrians show signs of chemical attack - Focus moves to biological

AMMAN, May 10 (Reuters) - Syrian casualties treated in Turkey show signs of being victims of chemical weapons, the Turkish foreign minister said on Friday... -- Wounded Syrians show signs of chemical attack, Turkey says: Reuters, 10 May 2013.

Just as victims of chemical weapons attacks are entering the border countries of Syria, refugees infected with bioagents have the potential to spread disease into the surrounding countries. Syria has released bioweapons on it's own people according to Dekker: "There have been a number of accidents with their biological weapons programs that have killed civilians in the past in cities like Homs and Aleppo." -- Syria's Bio-Warfare Threat: an interview with Dr. Jill Dekker: New English Review, December 2007.

It is time for all UN member countries to focus on biosurveillance. -- DNA Biometrics - Biological Countermeasure Programs: HRI:H-II OPSEC, November 2012.

"Perhaps the weakest area of the rule of law now concerns the issue of enforcement. It is a truism that international law lacks the police functions that are found in domestic legal systems -- it is instead a system that still relies largely upon self-help when it comes to enforcement. The ability of the UN Security Council to perform its enforcement responsibilities under the Charter is limited by its need to operate in consensus and by its practical inability to order enforcement actions -- especially involving the use of military force -- against one of its permanent members." -- Weapons of Mass Destruction, Nonproliferation and International Security: Humanitarian Resource Institute, October 2002.

Crisis response is not a strategic plan, in the global war against terrorism.
