Why do pro-Western governments have trouble enforcing law and order?

We have laws against robbery and murder. Police forces, courts and
jails exist to punish naughty people.

anti-Westerrn governments?

It could be that robbery is hidden in dictatorships. Either that or the
crooks are so frightened of the government that they do not steal.

If the Muslim Brotherhood takes over, then soon the Egyptian generals will
be sacked and face court. I am also sure that many of them have much to
answer for like Hosni Mubarak or perhaps like the Turkish officers they
will be charged with fake charges. Either way they cannot stand down.
