I see that Instapundit is telling his large audience that American photo editing = reality: the opposition in Lebanon is full of "attractive Lebanese women," while the pro-Syrian faction, well ...

Caption: "Syrian workers hold pictures of Syrian President Bashar Assad as one cuts himself with a knife during a pro-Syrian demonstration in Beirut, Lebanon, Sunday, March 6, 2005. Man cuts himself to show his support and commitment to his president."

...that's what I'm seeing. And I haven't seen anything to suggest that it's an inaccurate reflection.

But, er, Glenn? Some of the people who were getting blown up by insurgents in Iraq a couple of weeks ago were cutting themselves really, really badly -- in fact, that's why they were being blown up. They're all bloody from self-inflicted sword wounds. And there are no pretty girls in sight. Does that mean the insurgents were right to kill them?
