"The Other Cedar Revolution"

Thousands of protesters from Hezbollah and its allies spent a second night in a tent city in downtown Beirut, within earshot of the office-turned-residence of Prime Minister Fouad Siniora.

“Beirut is free, Siniora out,” thousands chanted during a late Saturday night rally at a central square. The protesters said they would not leave before the government fell.


I’m confused — how come the warbloggers of the world aren’t posting photos of “protest babes”, proclaiming the latest victory for the admininstration’s freedom agenda, and crowing about the continuation of the Arab Spring? Democracy = large street protests, right?
