    I'm a big Billy Joel fan, hear are a few of my picks:

    7/7/05 British subway bombings (aka 7/7 bombings)

    SARS

    Mumbai Attacks

    Tsunami

    Hurricane Katrina

    Bird Flu

    Anthrax

    US involvement in torture

    USS Cole

    Israeli airport terrorist attacks

    Current world recession

    Kosovo

    Somalian Piracy

    Battle of Mogadishu (black hawk down)

    Israel Palestine conflict

    South Ossetia War (Russia invading Georgia)

    O.J Simpson Trial

    Nancy Kerrigan attacked

    Many earthquakes have happened around the world

    Reagan dies

    Princess Diana dies in car crash

    Afghanistan (how could I not mention this one earlier)

    Iraq invades Kuwait

    Mad Cow disease

    Guantanamo Bay

    North Korea Missile test

    Enron & other business scandals

    Iran being a douche

    Abu Ghraib

    Hugo Chavez being a douche too

    Darfur!!

    Challenger blowing up

    Space Shuttle Columbia disaster

    Benazir Bhutto Assassination

    Here are the ones I could think of. But in the spirit of the Billy Joel song "We Didn't Start the Fire", you should include international events as well as domestic, as you probably already noticed I sure did.
