Saudis tell Syria to withdraw, but Why?

The Saudis want Syria out of Lebanon, which is a good thing, but why the sudden support for democracy? Could they be concerned about the effect of a democratic uprising so close to their kingdom? While on the one hand the Saudis might want to see this squelched, they may think they can better manage their own future by keeping Lebanon as quiet as possible.

Looks like more than the left is feeling a little threatened by all this democracy breaking out.

Thanks K. J. Lopez at The Corner for linking Yahoo! News - Saudis Tell Syria to Withdraw From Lebanon.
