This is another instance of the Bush Doctrine - and the neo-con Democratic Domino Theory - WORKING! Soon BOTH Syria and Iran will be entiredly surrounded by pro-USA / pro-democracy governments which will oppose neojihadist terrorism. This will put increasing pressure on Syria and Iran to democratize, too - (and to cease supporting neojihadism and imbalancing armament policies). It's a WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN!

LEBANESE ORANGE REVOLUTION BLOSSOMING
AP - hat tip Glenn - Tens of thousands of opposition supporters shouted insults at Syria and demanded the resignation of their pro-Syrian government in a Beirut demonstration Monday, marking a week since the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Beating drums and waving Lebanese flags, those of their own parties and portraits of past leaders killed during the 1975-90 civil war, the protesters gathered at the site where Hariri was killed Feb. 14 in a bombing that the opposition blames on Damascus. Some in the crowd yelled "Syria out!" and "We don't want a parliament that acts as a doorkeeper for the Syrians," competing with loud insults shouted against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
