While not the top headline it should be in this country, the long-awaited withdrawal of Syrian troops from Lebanon is supposedly complete
. I doubt if all of their intelligence operatives are out as well but this is a day we should all appreciate, accomplished more peacefully than many of us expected. It's not the end of the story but Lebanon will soon no longer be the world's last satellite country to a dominant neighbor. Much remains to be done but I'm glad for what has happened so far.
