More proof that Bush's bold "NEOCON" action in Iraq is paying off HUGE dividends that will benefit humanity for generations:

NRO/The Corner - TKS' QUOTE OF THE DAY [Jonah Goldberg]

Jim's right: QUOTE OF THE DAY

From David Ignacius' column in the Washington Post today: The leader of this Lebanese intifada [for independence from Syria] is Walid Jumblatt, the patriarch of the Druze Muslim community and, until recently, a man who accommodated Syria's occupation. But something snapped for Jumblatt last year, when the Syrians overruled the Lebanese constitution and forced the reelection of their front man in Lebanon, President Emile Lahoud. The old slogans about Arab nationalism turned to ashes in Jumblatt's mouth, and he and Hariri openly began to defy Damascus...

"It's strange for me to say it, but this process of change has started because of the American invasion of Iraq," explains Jumblatt. "I was cynical about Iraq. But when I saw the Iraqi people voting three weeks ago, 8 million of them, it was the start of a new Arab world." Jumblatt says this spark of democratic revolt is spreading. "The Syrian people, the Egyptian people, all say that something is changing. The Berlin Wall has fallen. We can see it."

Glenn links to this too - and adds (in his typical pseudo-snarky manner which so wondefully makes fun of the reactionary Left): "Those damn idealistic neo-cons. Don't they realize that Arabs don't care about democracy?"

I'll just concur with Glenn and Jumblatt by adding what I wrote a month ago: the road to Damascus goes through Beirut. IOW: this is still just the beginning; many more exciting democratic revolutions lie before us in the days and months ahead in Syria and then in Iran and even in Egypt - and everywhere else in the tyrannical Muslim world...

And I'll add one more thing: I BET that it will be Bush inspired indigenous democratic revolutions in Iran and North Korea which will ultimately save us all from their nukes (and NOT U.S.A. military action).

Democracy and freedom are ultimately our most potent weapon against tyranny and terror; the innate universal desire for personal liberty (combined with American resolve to defend it EVERYWHERE) ended the Cold War and it will defeat the neojhihadists and end WW4, too.
