The world, it's a'changin.

Not only is Egypt's Mubarak suddenly going to allow (some) opposition parties to participate in elections, but the Lebanese government has just resigned:
BEIRUT, Lebanon - With shouts of "Syria out!" 25,000 protesters massed outside Parliament in a dramatic display of defiance that forced out Lebanon's pro-Syrian prime minister and Cabinet Monday, two weeks after the assassination of a popular politician touched off increasing unrest.

Syria remained silent about the rapidly changing atmosphere in Beirut, where it ruled unopposed for years, even deciding on the Lebanon's leaders, after deploying troops ostensibly as peacekeepers during the 1975-90 civil war.

But the dramatic developments — reminiscent of Ukraine's peaceful "orange revolution" and broadcast live across the Arab world — could provoke a strong response from Syria, which keeps 15,000 troops in Lebanon. It also could plunge this nation of 3.5 million back into a period of uncertainty, political vacuum or worse.
Oh, talk about a gift that a "response from Syria" would be! Talk about an excuse for intervention! The CNN "pity machine" works both ways...

But this all has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the policies of G. W. Bush, right? At least according to the credit given by the MSM...
