Check another prophecy off the list

I have started to collect all the prophecies which modern apostles and prophets have pronounced "fulfilled".  Here is one from President Ezra Taft Benson, in 1991. 

In the Lord’s preface to his revelations in the Doctrine and Covenants, He warned: “The day speedily cometh; the hour is not yet, but is nigh at hand, when peace shall be taken from the earth, and the devil shall have power over his own dominion.” (D&C 1:35.)
Today—some 160 years after this revelation was given—we see the fulfillment of this prediction. Satan, in undiminished fury, is displaying power over “his own dominion”—the earth. Never has his influence been so great, and only those who have taken the Holy Spirit as their guide and followed counsel from priesthood leaders will be spared from the havoc of his evil influence.
From the First Presidency message, "Strengthen Thy Stakes", Jan. 1991.
That is amazing that twenty years ago, a prophet actually stated that peace had already been taken from the earth, and the devil had already been given power over his own dominion.  When I read a scripture verse like that in the Book of Mormon, I could think it was still in the future.  But no.  Its already here.
