CARACAS, Venezuela (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Venezuela's president says any outside military action taken against Syria over its alleged use of chemical weapons on its own citizens could lead to a "disastrous war."

Nicolas Maduro is a close ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Maduro says the allegation that the Syrian government carried out a poison attack near Damascus "smells the same" as when the U.S. accused Iraq of possessing weapons of mass destruction before invading the country in 2003.
