Hezbollah protesters' "hilarious juxtaposition"

Considerettes observes the internal inconsistency of a pro-Syrian protest in Beiruit: the US should withdraw from Iraq ("Stop Foreign Interference") / Syria should stay in Lebanon ("Lebanon and Syria: Brothers Forever"). They embrace dictatorship and outside interference in their internal affairs, but decry the democratization and US interference in Iraq. As Considerettes notes, what is consistent and the real basis for their protest is their fear of democracy. (Hat tip Instapundit).
