The Only Way to Run Iraq

According to reports on a new security plan, apparently the place only functions as a police state. Here's a quote that wouldn't look out of place in Saddam's own playbook:
"[Lt.-Gen. Abboud Gambar] said the government would break into homes and cars it deemed dangerous, open mail and eavesdrop on phone calls."
The choice in Iraq now is really between partition and dictatorship. I cannot see any other options being viable.
