Seems like a simple question

So Tony Blair is stepping down. He has annointed his buddy Gordon Brown to take his place. I cannot for the life of me find any reference to this guy's position on the war in Iraq. It would seem like news articles would address this. Even if he has NO position, that would be news, right?

It seems like any leader taking over in any place besides maybe Poland these days would have to be anti-war. But I also do not know. Wolfowitz is going to resign! YAY!

I stand corrected: (from Wikipedia, so who knows where it's correct or not)

"Foreign policy: Gordon Brown remains committed to the Iraq war but said in his speech on Friday that he would "learn the lessons" from the mistakes made in Iraq. He remains staunchly pro-American, but had said that he wants a more "solid but not slavish" relationship with Washington."

I read this today:

Gordon Brown, who secured the job of British prime minister on Thursday, said he would work to rebuild trust in government but outlined no change in the divisive military commitment in Iraq.
