Good demonstrations versus bad demonstrations: We all saw how giddy and delighted Bush and his cronies were in reacting to demonstrations in Lebanon. But what he has not told you is this: Lebanese students groups (Christian and Muslims, leftists and rightists) have been demonstrating--in the thousands--weekly infront of the US embassy in Beirut to protest US interferences in Lebanon, and US wars in the region. Apparently, the US government was not amused with those peaceful demonstrations. The Lebanese press has been reporting that the US government has been pressing the Lebanese government to stop those demonstrations. But in fairness, the US government has made it clear that they would not object to demonstrations that would cheer Bush and his wars.
