Needed: Iraqi boss with mo': "Those who try to do the undoable must also think the unthinkable. US strategists in Iraq are contemplating what they have always denied, the search for a 'strong man with a moustache' to stop the present rot. If the result is not democracy, so be it."

This article has the realism of cynicism and makes points against the errors of the neoconservatives in their occupation of Iraq. But it is not as if the need for a 'strong man with a moustache' is any kind of surprise. Its the decade long search for a 'Iraqi junta without Saddam', the US-preferred form of Iraq government ever since Saddam disobeyed (or misunderstood) orders by invading Kuwait in 1991.
