My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


More Transformations

There may be enough courage on display in Iraq and Lebanon to fuel a world-wide projection of the power of an ideal: freedom.

Hundreds of thousands of people swarmed the streets yesterday chanting "freedom, sovereignty, independence" in by far the largest of a half-dozen demonstrations held in the past month.
Published estimates put the size of the anti-Syrian crowd at between 800,000 and 1 million -- roughly twice the size of a pro-Syrian rally organized a week ago by the radical movement Hezbollah, which the United States considers a terrorist group.

Sadly, I suspect it is only a matter of time before this becomes violent, but it sshould be obvious to anybody not blinded by ideology that the cry for liberty is ringing out across the region of the middle east.
