Winds of Change

"BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) -- With shouts of ``Syria out!,'' more than 25,000 flag-waving protesters massed outside Parliament on Monday in a dramatic display of defiance that forced the resignation of Lebanon's prime minister and Cabinet two weeks after the assassination of an opposition leader.

Cheering broke out among the demonstrators in Martyrs' Square when they
heard Prime Minister Omar Karami's announcement on loudspeakers that the
government was stepping down. Throughout the day, protesters handed out red
roses to soldiers and police.

Is it just me or do you hear the freedom song being sung accross that region ?
