I think it's good that things have been progressing the way that they have with the Lebanon situation, even as I think it's premature for the US to take credit for it. I just hope things there keep on the right track. Amid all the good news we're getting about Lebanon's renunciation of the oppressive Syrian regime, there's this report that a half million Lebanese attended a pro-Syrian protest.

For the sake of the Lebanese, for the sake of the region, and for the sake of the US (since Hezbollah doesn't seem to like us very much), I hope this is just a flash in the pan, and not something that re-emboldens the Syrians.
