Anarchy and Civil War Worse than Dictatorship?

There is something worse than dictatorship: anarchy. And there is even something worse than anarchy: civil war.
Le Figaro.

While I agree with this (translated here) quote from a French article in Le Figaro, I think it makes a rather moot point. It is NOT because the neoconservative ideologues in the Pentagon are arrogant morons and failed to even consider the post-Saddam era, THAT toppling a dictator is not a good think à-priori.

As much as I despise the neocons, I agree with them that dictatorship is the worst kind regime - chaos and anarchy are actually worse than anything else but they precisely mean that there is no regime any more. So the quote, while seemingly logical, is a fallacy.
