Iraq Holds Peaceful Vote In Hopeful Sign (Javno, January 31, 2009)

Iraq held a provincial election on Saturday without a major attack in the country, a sign that years of sectarian slaughter and insurgency may truly be fading into the past and greater security is taking hold.

The "stable" dictatorship of Saddam, Syria and Egypt.
