Lebanon - Opposition declares independence uprising

UPI reports "BEIRUT, Lebanon, Feb. 18 : The multi-sectarian Lebanese opposition Friday demanded Syria end its military presence and called for dismissal of the government."

"In response to the policy of intimidation and terrorization by the Lebanese authorities and the Syrian authorities, the Lebanese opposition declares the launching of the democratic and peaceful uprising for independence," the opposition said in a statement.

"We demand the dismissal of the government, which has no legitimacy, and the formation of a transitional administration to protect the Lebanese people and ensure the immediate withdrawal of the Syrian army from Lebanon to pave the way for holding free and honest legislative elections."

Things are moving swiftly in the middle east since the death of Arafat and the Iraqi elections. Now if only the people of Iran could rise up and overthrow the mad mullahs.
