Obama becomes Harper Lite?

If President Obama comes around to Prime Minister Harper's way of thinking on foreign policy with respect to Iran, then does that make him Harper Lite?

It's very simple - for some people in the world, many of them leaders of their respective countries - endless platitudes just embolden them rather than deterring them. For these people, interventions may be necessary if they abuse and murder their own people, or those of another country without provocation. I sincerely hope an intervention isn't necessary in Iran's case, but I would support our decision to intervene if necessary.
