A resident of southern Basra told me recently that what Iraq needs is a 'good Saddam'
When he was in power he was a loon, but the electricity worked, the water was always switched on, and you could to a large degree trust your neighbours.
Now the power is on at random for two hours a day maybe, the water hardly ever works, the streets are filled with garbage, and a wrong word in the wrong location will get you killed.
I also think it is ironic that Saddam was a Sunni, Muslim (in the minority), and now he's gone the country is about to be taken over by largely Sunni revolt.
Awwad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri al-Samarrai, the leader of ISIS is a Sunni himself, and grew up in a Sunni area.
All that effort to change the regime of Saddam, and the net result is the forcible takeover of the country by another Sunni...
