The "New Iraq"

The American invasion of Iraq was supposed to transform it from an oppressive dictatorship into a free and democratic society. Which is obviously why the Iraqi government is engaging in aggressive censorship of the media, including banning "unwarranted criticism" of the Prime Minister.

Who decides what constitutes "unwarranted criticism"? Why, the Prime Minister's flunkies, of course.

The "New Iraq" seems to be quickly turning into just another Arab despotism. Was this really worth 13,000 dead civilians?
