Gates warns against US military involvement in Syria

'Gates said in an interview with CBS's "Face the Nation," on Sunday that US military involvement in Syria’s crisis would be a "mistake" and that the outcome would be unpredictable and messy, AFP reported.

"I thought it was a mistake in Libya, and I think it is a mistake in Syria, even if we had intervened more significantly in Syria a year ago or six months ago. We overestimate our ability to determine outcomes," said Gates, who was US Defense Secretary in 2011 when the United States joined a NATO-led air operation in Libya to topple Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi

His comments come as reports say American senators are pushing the Obama administration to intervene in Syria in favor of the militants fighting the government of President Bashar al-Assad by stepping up military support for them.'
