Iraq as state of nature

I briefly saw that Jon Lee Anderson was arguing in the New Yorker that deBaathification has made Iraq less stable. I realize that with the lack of institutions that can impose force, Iraq is the state of nature! Hobbes was right that it can really exist. Either that or it is a failed state. I think that the Americans have responsibility to make sure the same guys do not come to power and the Iraqis are just as badly off as before.
