Deja vu all over again.

UK's Brown won't rule out military action in Iran

LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said on Monday he would not rule out military action against Iran, but believed a policy of sanctions could still persuade Tehran to drop its disputed nuclear program.

"I firmly believe that the sanctions policy that we are pursuing will work, but I'm not one who's going forward to say that we rule out any particular form of action," Brown told a news conference, when asked if he would rule out a military strike against Iran.

Ah, the spring of '03. I was in Ireland in February that year and every single person we met said,"Your daft president. He's going to attack Iraq, isn't he?"

After we had assured them that neither of of had voted for the man, we babbled on about sanctions and inspections, neither of us really believing it.

If I squint my eyes, Brown looks just like Blair.
