Biggest world news story of the decade?

Save to delicious Saved by 0 users

September 11th 2001, a date which will live in infamy.

With only a couple days into entering a new decades, the news media is discussing what is the biggest news story of the decade. Today, the following poll was put on Canada.com asking readers 'What was the biggest world news story of the decade?'

The choices listed are:

- Election of Obama
- South Asian Tsunami
- 9/11 Terrorist Attacks
- War in Iraq
- Global Recession
- Other

As of noon today, the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks have been chosen by most readers with about 70% of the vote. It's surprising that 9/11 isn't ahead by a larger percentage, but I think that it is the most historically significant story of the decade by far.
