Syrian Withdrawal Complete?

Well, the MSM has finally noticed that Syria has withdrawn its troops from Lebanon. So they say, anway; a UN team is on the ground to verify the withdrawal (let's hope they do a better job on this than on most of their other assignments). What you won't see, at least not at CNN, the NY Times, or MSNBC, is any mention of the influence of the opening of Iraqi society in convincing the Lebanese they could at last rid themselves of the Syrian occupation.

Now, all eyes will be on Hizbullah. What will become of the organization now that it has lost some of the proximity with its protectors? No doubt, this isn't the end, but a beginning.
