"Arab Spring!"

Look, ma, freedom is on the march:

Fires at scores of barricades sent billowing black smoke against a pale blue sky. Across the capital, only mopeds, some carrying Hezbollah cadres with walkie talkies, navigated the roadblocks along usually clogged streets that were empty. On the airport highway, a half-dozen barricades blocked traffic, forcing some travelers to drag their luggage by foot. Government supporters and foes squared off across the barricades, hurling rocks, sticks and insults in clashes that sometimes lasted hours.

GatewayPundit rounds up right blogistan’s reactions — shockingly this wave of protests isn’t being wildly celebrated by hawks and civil disobedience is no longer equivalent to the dawning of democracy. Hezbollah’s protest babes aren’t hot enough I guess?
