Gadhafi has extensive stockpiles of mustard gas and high explosives at his disposal that could be employed in attacks against targets in Europe or against rebels in Libya, the Wall Street Journal reports. He also has a history of ordering strikes against civilians and other world leaders.
“U.S. officials are keeping an eye on that possibility,” one U.S. official told the Journal.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy acknowledged that concern last week when he raised the prospect of a “targeted” action against Gadhafi if he tries to use his mustard gas stockpile or “other, undocumented WMDs,” The Guardian disclosed.
And in Italy, a key member of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s government expressed concern that Italy could face retaliation from the Gadhafi regime.
