The Electric Commentary

Monday, February 28, 2005


Apparently the government in Lebanon just gave up:

Prime Minister Omar Karami announced his resignation on state television, sparking cheers from thousands of flag-waving protesters gathered in central Beirut to demonstrate against his government and Syria's involvement in the country.

Mr. Karami said he did not want his government to become an obstacle to the good of the country. The announcement came as parliament debated an opposition-sponsored no-confidence motion in Mr. Karami's government.

This is excellent news. Hopefully democracy is just around the corner. Glenn has a nice roundup. Just keep scrolling.
