Half a million gather for pro-Syrian rally to defy vision of US

Wednesday, March 09, 2005

Half a million gather for pro-Syrian rally to defy vision of US. Some news media were jumping up on down for the anti-Syria rallies the other day. This rally overshadowed, in numbers, that one. "So what did all this prove? That there was another voice in Lebanon. That if the Lebanese "opposition" - pro-Hariri and increasingly Christian - claim to speak for Lebanon and enjoy the support of President Bush, there is a pro-Syrian, nationalist voice which does not go along with their anti-Syrian demands but which has identified what it believes is the true reason for Washington's support for Lebanon: Israel's plans for the Middle East."

Complexity!
