Syrian President Bashar Assad has warned there will be "repercussions" against any U.S. military strike launched in response to a chemical weapons attack in his country.

"You should expect everything," Assad said in an interview with Charlie Rose at CBS taped in Damascus. "Not necessarily from the government. It's not only the government ... in this region. You have different parties, you have different factions, you have different ideology."

Asked if he was making a threat of a direct military response to any such attack, Assad was vague, saying at one point, "I am not fortune teller to tell you what's going to happen."
