Dominoes Falling

There was a Free Lebanon demonstration on Parliament Hill today. I didn't manage to catch as much of it as I'd have liked to, but I think I've got a nice representative sample of photos. A goodly-sized crowd was still around, even though starting to disperse after speakers had come and gone. Interestingly, that's the same pole as here, now considerably less lunatic in its aignage. They know who their friends are... ...Though listing Chirac as an ally might be a bit of wishful thinking. But it's just no fun for the chattering classes to accuse anyone of ordering torture, unless their name rhymes with "Shrumsfeld;" haven't you heard? Given that Assad's Syria is a Baathist police state in the same mould as Iraq was, I think that's perhaps the first even quasi-appropriate use I've ever seen of a swastika in a protest sign. Note the references to UN Resolution 1559. It's a shame that some people still hope that the UN is capable of carrying out such resolutions, or even really willing to. "Christians, Muslims, Druze, unite. One voice alone, the same cry: Out!" You know, some of us believed this sort of thing was, in fact, bound to happen, after the liberation of Iraq. A year ago the fact that Lebanon is a Syrian satrapy wasn't even on the radar of internationalist do-gooders; now a movement for representative government free of Assad's mini-Stalinist tyranny is happening without them. (I didn't see many pasty-faced hippies around. Maybe it takes a bit more effort to march in steadfast resolve for a good cause, than in paranoid hatred?)

Saw your blog for the first time. It showed a small but spirited demo for a free Lebanon but it was so nice to see this kind of thing happening. It is spreading like wildfire.

I'm a born US citizen and conservatively oriented person. I am aware that it's none of my business to comment on how other nations design their national flags but it was so GRAND to see the old red ensign again on your blog. It always seemed to be the handsomest of all national flags including our own and I was sorry to see it get replaced by the maple leaf bread wrapper in 1957 which has always left me a little cold.

Blessings

We also have some traveling to do yet. G.W.Bush has made some giant strides
in a very short time. Not only has he changed the discussion across the world, he appears to have triggered the reversal of anti-religion in the U.S. A major effort must be made to change liberalism in our courts. Hopefully your Canada will see better days shortly.

Your site is great. Keep going.

Have seen nothing in the Main Stream Media (MSM) about this demonstration for a free Lebanon. Bloggers like yourself must carry the message from now on. Ezra Levant on Western Standard Shotgun has posted on this. I will post a reference to your site in the Shotgun comments.

Has Western Standard linked to your site? Or vice versa?

As much as viagra has rescued the people from the cruel grip of erectile dysfunction it has also proved to be a curse to many because of wrong conception and wrong interpretation of its functioning. People buy viagra with the notion of having an extra erotic night without actually having the need to. Nowadays Viagra is also easily accessible and anyone can buy viagra online. In addition viagra online is more often than not cheap viagra i.e. a discounted version. People can easily get Viagra from the online pharmacies using wrong information. But in this way they will harm no one but their own selves, so it is always handy to have a clear conception of the drug one is taking.
