Unity in Babel?

The ultimate oxymoron? Unity in the birthplace of disunity (confusion)? Well maybe not unity just yet, but, certainly encouraging progress.

Babil became the 12th province turned over the Iraqi Government today.
The province included the Sunni "triangle of death" that was once a dangerous area but has seen a turnaround since the Bush Surge of 2007.
The AFP reported:

Iraqi forces on Thursday took control of the central Shiite province of Babil, the 12th of Iraq's 18 provinces to be handed over by American troops to Baghdad.
