Everybody notes the crowds keep on increasing at the protests by Hezbollah and its allies in Beirut, as yesterday hundreds of thousands of demonstrators gathered to demand an end to Lebanon's current government. The leaders of the protests noted time is running out before further steps are taken. Although no rumors have been confirmed, there are indications a campaign of civil disobedience will now follow. Meanwhile, the NYT emphasizes the country's prime minister, Fouad Siniora, told reporters he doesn't understand "what is this great cause that is making them create this tense political mess and stage open-ended demonstrations."He doesn't understand the great cause? He sounds like one of our administration folks in his in-depth and quite sound study of the politics in the situation.
