Just Remind Me, Please ...

BAGHDAD (CNN) -- Thousands of people marched through the streets of Baghdad on Friday, enthusiastically voicing support for Lebanon's Hezbollah militia.

Angry protesters chanted slogans, burned Israeli flags and waved Lebanese and Hezbollah flags in the Iraqi capital's densely populated Shiite enclave of Sadr City. Demonstrators also held up placards with the portrait of Hassan Nasrallah, head of Hezbollah.
Something about "Iraqi Freedom," wasn't it? The Global Duh-mocratic Revolution? The birth pangs of the New Middle East?

Well, it certainly appears that all is going to plan. Carry on, Dubya, by all means.
