Stratfor's "top ten geopolitical events" of the last decade 

I'm a sucker for lists, the more important the better. Herewith (interactive file), Stratfor's "top ten geopolitical events of the last decade". The attacks on September 11, 2001 are at the top of the list, and President Obama's "surge" in Afghanistan is at the bottom. There is a lot in between.

"President Obama's "surge" in Afghanistan..."

Thus moving the theater of the Islamic Conflict from a manageable arena (Iraq) to an area in which it is impossible to wage a successful conventional war.

Good Work, Barry!

2006 : North Korea conducts an atomic bomb test. Although it kind-of went *pop* instead of Bang!

2009 : North Korea does it again, only this time it went *Pop* (a slight improvement, in their opinion)
