Nightime Party in Downtown Beirut

A stream of Lebanese in vehicles, some cheering and playing loud music from their car stereos, drive past the former opposition protest camp, with the Mohammed Al-Amin Mosque seen beyond, in downtown Beirut, Lebanon, Thursday, May 22, 2008. Beirut nightlife returned to the areas surrounding the former protest camp after protesters removed their tents and authorities took away barricades, razor wire, and concrete roadblocks from the downtown area of Beirut.

  3. Sunday will be the official ceremony declaring the coup a success. Since they are in control then there is no need for the protests any longer. I just wish that "tent city" could have folded for slightly different reasons.

    Ah, the shortsightedness of the Lebanese people never ceases to amaze me.
