Brown evades question over Iran?

According to the BBC Gordon Brown has "evaded" questions over whether he would rule out military action over Iran's nuclear program.


What is he supposed to do? Announce an invasion right now or rule out military action altogether?

That is just plain bonkers.

I suspect many people in government, the military and the public would rather not attack Iran, but ruling it out won't help. I don't think sabre rattling will help resolve the issue but not having options other than diplomatic ones is a sure fire way to fail.

The only question is why is the BBC taking this obviously judgemental line in its choice of headline. The article itself is not as bad.
