In a stunning show of force, an estimated 800,000 anti-Syria, pro-freedom demonstrators turned out in Beirut today, implicitly responding to, and far exceeding, Hizbollah’s impressive effort of a few days ago:
Does it matter? Sure. The Syria-Hizbollah-terrorist alliance got a major shot in the arm from Hizbollah’s demonstrations. A bloodless revolution is possible, but only if it’s supported by a clear majority of the populace, who are willing to show that they are no longer afraid to say what they think for fear of being shot. That’s the practical definition, I think, of the proverbial “tipping point.” Today’s show of strength went a long way, I hope, toward showing the Syrians and their Lebanese allies that the tide of history is moving inexorably against them.
