What would Chief Wiggum do? (WWCWD?)

Glenn has a nice roundup of the "Cedar Revolution" underway in Lebanon. But buried within this piece about the round-the-clock tent city of protesters camping out in downtown Beiruit was this gem:

A constant stream of mourners and protesters swells the camp population in the evenings. Food and water are brought in by supporters, while a nearby Dunkin' Donuts and a Virgin Megastore provide bathroom facilities. As during Monday's mass demonstration, the police and army are keeping a respectful distance from these protesters and seem unwilling to use violence against them. Only those directly in front of the parliament have ammunition clips in their rifles.

Wow, if the protestors can keep the police away from the Dunkin Donuts you know a real revolution is afoot.

Heh, now that there is a damn keen observation of a point that completely escaped me.
