Is Iran losing its grip on Iraq and Lebanon?

The Lebanese uprising, with millions pouring into the streets of Beirut and other cities across the country, is a significant setback to Iran’s influence in this country. As this unrest continues, a new round of demonstrations is erupting in Iraq as scheduled for October 25. Protesters in both countries, fed up with poverty, unemployment, government corruption, and Iran’s meddling, are stating sweeping demands, including the overthrow of the ruling system.
