    I voted for so-called 'war on terror' which decisively altered the course of world which otherwise should have been more harmonious than what it is today. Second comes financial crisis..... a lesson to the world capitalism ain't after all the utopia. Sikainfluenza is what looks now is a overhyped event though of course due credit should be given to those who actually prevented it.

    I think that the term "war on terror" is such an oxymoron...

    War creates terror!

    I think the Euro was the most important event for the last decade. Well for Europeans in the zone it is!

    For the first time Europe is one and together. Although there are other EU countries who have not joined, I believe that they will.

    I remember a few years ago Tony Blair saying that the UK should join "NOW" while the UK economy is strong enough to make terms, rather than later when the economy is weaker.

    I think Snow means from 2000 until 2010



    And I think it was all the natural disasters, and they're the worse disasters specifically because they can't really be stopped and they're so catastrophic.

    Especially in my country, where there are endless bush fires killing thousands and thousands of people.

    War on 'terrorism'.
    Well, I don't know who's the terrorist, whether Bush or the Muslims he killed

    I think it's the most important because you get that on the news EVERY day

    I'd add one more to the list: The raise and grow of Social Media

    That's the only true worldwide event with worldwide impact
