Most Important Events of the 2000s

A list of the most important events from 2000-2009.

The Top Ten

September 11, 2001

This effected the world on a huge scale, look at what would not have happened if this didn't happen, this was a huge deal.

I remember it well a thing as barbaric as that will stick in my mind. All terrorist attacks are horrible but it's the way they did using planes and unsural way of commuting a terrorist attack

The tragic events on that day forever changed the way we look at terrorism.

9/11 was an absolute tragedy. And to think it had to happen in 2001. What a Hell of a way to kick off the new millenium. I envy everyone in the future, who's going to be born in the 22nd century, because nobody should have to live in a tragic time period, such as this.

7 July 2005 London Bombings

This should definitely be higher that on persons death. You wouldn't put 9/11 under his death then why would you put this under him. Completely unacceptable.

This should be higher because it is a major thing that many people died in

Worst attack in Britain that ever happened! This should be at 2!

Should be higher than Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson dies

he's awesome and a lot of people looked up to him

Michael Jackson was amazing and cute until he had plastic surgery for no reason

Michael Jackson was easily one of the biggest inspirations out there and to this day he still continues to amaze people with his love and passion for music

Child predator but okay

2008 Mumbai Attacks

This should definitely be higher than michael molester up there

This event was truly sad. So many lives were lost that day.

It was a terrorized part or the world at the time.

Well its pretty important
so yeah.

Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina? more like hurricane Tortilla

My brothers teacher left new Orleans when it hit, sad to know she saw her home place get destroyed

Well, I wouldn't exactly call it a major event, although, it did leave a huge impact on the world. It changed our way of resources and showed an ability of working together. I'm sure in some ways it can be a major event. It led the help of many people to work together to help the community.

Yes did a project about it very tragic

Election of Barack Obama

He was the first African American president! Huge event that should be recognized more.

I would vote for a black president if I agreed with his politics, but Obama is a socialist idiot

This should be higher than Michael Jackson dies... I think Michael Jackson dies should definitely be high up but this should be higher.

Barack Obama gave me the n-pass

2009 Iran Protests

They were fighting for what’s right but the bad people mad the bad choices.

That's interesting...

Obama screwed up this one


Burger King Creates Chicken Fries

I still remember the day that I first tasted one. It seemed that they were discontinued for a few years, so they became a faint, but pleasant memory for me. Then, one day, I saw a billboard announcement that chicken fries were back. Nearly in tears, I called my father and told him the news. He began sobbing as he recalled the deep love that my mother had had for the fries.
I had a similar experience when I heard the announcement on early-morning radio that McDonald's would from then on be serving breakfast 24/7 at select locations. These are the events that I want to relive when I get to heaven.

Bless this great nation there has never been a finer invention in all of time God bless America praise Jesus Hallelujah good day too all enjoy the chicken fries

This event really changed the world and our future. with out this Americas economy would be going down hill and the great depression would happen again.

Wow the world is changing with this amazing event it has impacted life's

The Economy Collapses

Thanos says "I AM INNEVITABLE" then IRON MAN SNAPS his fingers after saying to thanos "I AM IRON MAN"
kapush thanos and his army turn to dust*

Why isn't it higher on the list?

economy in America is dying

Because economy decides all our lives, if our economy falls we fall too.

Boston Marathon Bombing

This was an attack that shocked the world because of how they caught everyone off guard.

I love how this is after Burger King Chicken Fries, and Youtube Forms.

2013 is NOT in the 2000's. we're in a new decade now people, and half way through it.

The Boston Bombing was in 2013, which is NOT in the 2000s.

The Contenders

Africa's Population Reaches 1 Billion

1 billion infected with ebola

Green River Killer Captured

Ladys and gentlemen we got him

Really important moment not compared to the Unabomber or other serial killers

How tf do u kill a river lmao

got hem

BTK Captured

Who is BTK? You mean bin laden?

BTK was a serial killer, Dennis Rader.

This guy was not a nice guy.

It was a big capture that gave everyone a little relief.

Cave of the Crystals First Discovered

Hey guys just found diamonds in minecraft, jealousss?

We have a diamond pickaxe. We have retrieved 12 obsidian and only need two more. WE'RE GOING TO THE NETHER! - 0w0uwu

umm wrong

Michael Jackson Molestation Trial

Id let him molest me

He was daddy wym

He didn't do it

Had a good outcome

Pluto.No longer a planet.

SAD. Pluto is a GREAT little guy who doesn't deSERVE this DISCRIMINATION from those IDIOt SCIENTISTS over at WHO KNOWS WHERE. But we ALL know that Pluto is the BEST little guy you could EVER meet but! NO he is all ALONE thanks to those dudes over at NASA or wherever cause! PLUTO! My baby boy he just deserves more! #justiceforpluto! Who deserves to be a planet more than Pluto he's the BEST! DISSATISFIED, DISAPPOINTED, DISGUSTED

No longer a planet to the human science. But something can't be denied from what it is, it is like you kick out somebody from the family.
Pluto is considered a dwarf planet from 2006 but it's still a planet...

I love Pluto how could they do this it's a round thing like all other planets so I think it is considered a planet don't you agree?!

Fake science. 0/10

Death of Bin Laden

This gave everyone a piece of mind that they are a lot more safer with this man dead.

Bin laden meets the navy seals.

He died in 2011 so it makes no sense to put his death on here.

Haha stoopid osama bin laden your dead

Saddam Hussein Captured

This was also a big capture in which is saving a lot of people from more terrorist attacks.

Yep, I agree. This was significant.

This is a pretty important event. Saddam was one of the most evil people of the 21st century so far. He gasses and commited genocide his own people. His capture helped bring justice to all the atrocities he committed as Iraq's dictator


Euro Comes to Europe

The Euro was introduced to Europe in the 2000s now days many European countries use the Euro as their national money (Europe has Euro in it)

Guys that's great

Big change for us europeans

Now the entire Europe should become a one nation country! 🙃

Tsunami in East Asia

That's right, Michael Jackson's death is far more important than a tsunami not only kills 230.000 innocents souls in 14 different countries but also becoming the deadliest tsunami in history. THIS SHOULD BE 1!

We should go to war with the sea for that

Should be higher

9/11 was bad, but did it ruin the lives of millions no, therefore this is a more tragic event. But oh well what can you do against patriotic oh look at me being smart invading countries that didn't need invading cause they got oil Americans who think the world is about them. GET A GRIP, ITS NOT.

Disney Bought Marvel Entertainment

Marvel was amazing either way, long live iron man

Bad decision on their behalf to be honest

I love captain america

Cousin loves black panther

YouTube Forms

This is so important YouTube helped shape the world today!


Water Is Found On the Moon

That's really cool I didn't know that

War On Terror

The war on terror has been going on for ages and I don’t think it will stop anytime soon.

War war war just terrible

The Virginia Tech Mass Shooting

He was a senior, and it was at the end of the year. That means this was a pretty savage senior prank.
