Chalk up another, final, victory for the Cedar Revolution.
The Lebanese government formally announced the election will be held on time - on May 29th 2005.
The million-person demonstration, the two-month sleep-in at the tent-city, the countdown campaign, the village campaign, the media pressure, the international pressure - it all came together. It's a new era in Lebanon now. The time of post-war occupation and oppression is over. The Cedar Revolution is now over, too.
But the fruit of it will live on, in the Lebanese People, and the people they've inspired throughout the Middle East and around the globe. Hope springs eternal, but the Lebanese have certainly tapped its source!
