The Iraq protests, which are indeed calling for an end to corruption, are also greatly motivated by the people's want for better living conditions and more jobs. Many of the people, especially the protestors, are jobless or make little money in the job that they do have, which is a strong motivator to do something. Sadly, corruption is inevitable in any large government and cannot ever be fully eradicated. Even the U.S. government, when closely inspected, is riddled with signs of corruption, corporate influence, and pork barrel spending. However, I do not believe that Iraq has a dictatorship or that the Iraq government is heading towards becoming another dictatorship. I believe that most of what is coming out of this government as far as corruption and unrest is simply because it is a very young government that is fairly new in it's ways of operation, and that in time conditions will improve as long as elections remain uncorrupt and the people are able to choose who they believe will serve the best interests of the people.
