This article is a bit subjective. If you don't like it ... sorry about that.

2009 was the final year of the 2000s decade and a bad year in some ways, there was the late 2000s Crisis, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad winning the Iranian elections (just like Bush did in 2000), conservatives still existing...

But on the other hand, there was Obama's inauguration, Uncle Sam is finally leaving Iraq and George W.Bush isn't the President anymore.

On September 11 2009 (The Eighth Anniversary of 9/11) Hugo Chavez announced the discovery of a vast gas field which made a big difference to the Venezuelan Economy.[1]
