Guess Dubya Inc. and cheerleaders will be mothballing that 'Cedar Revolution' stuff for a little while:

"Anti-Syrian candidates apparently suffered major losses in a third round of elections Sunday to fill nearly half the seats in parliament, a senior opposition leader conceded after a campaign that led to some surprising alliances.

"Walid Jumblatt said former army commander Michel Aoun, who broke opposition ranks and joined pro-Syrian groups on an anti-corruption slate, was winning in contested constituencies.

"Aoun's success could hurt the opposition's drive to gain a majority in the 128-seat legislature and leave him a key player in the fight over Syrian control. An empowered Aoun could put the brakes on the opposition's campaign to remove the pro-Syrian President Emile Lahoud."
