The Lebanese Revolution?

This just in from CNN: the pro-Syrian Lebanese government has resigned.
An estimated 50,000 people gathered Monday in Beirut's Martyr Square despite an order a day earlier by Lebanon's Interior Ministry for military forces to "use all necessary means" to make sure the demonstrations did not take place.

Earlier today, thousands of Lebanese protestors took to the streets to call for Syria to pull out of Lebanon, which it has occupied (and run into the ground) since 1976. The protests began, and increased, after Syrian backed terrorists killed former Lebanese PM (who was against Syrian occupation) Rafik Hariri.

The march of freedom continues.
