2002

In 2002, the Euro was announced as the official currency for twelve members of the European Union and ten new countries were voted to be added to the EU.

2002

At The Hague, the trial for Slobodan Milosevic, former Yugoslav’s leader, was opened with charges of crimes committed against humanity. Moreover, a 19-year-old civil war ended after the Sri Lankan government and Tamil Tigers signed a cease-fire agreement.

It was a bad year for India as more than 1000 people died in a bloodshed. It involved Muslim mob firebombing a train that killed Hindu activists, which led to Hindus’ retaliation. On 2 March of the same year, Afghan and U.S troops launched the Anaconda Operation against the Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters that were remaining in Afghanistan.

It is during this time that Israeli warplanes and tanks attacked the West Bank towns of Bethlehem, Jenin, Nablus, and a couple of others in response to the string of suicide bombings that had taken place in Palestine. The first three months of the same year were also not good for Israel as 14 suicide bombers killed dozens of Israeli civilians while hundreds of others were severely wounded. Luckily, the International Criminal Court won UN ratification while at the same time, U.S refused to sanction.

In some twists of events, Hugo Chavez who was Venezuela’s president at the time was ousted in a coup but then two days later on April 14, he was fortunate enough to be reinstated. Almost a month later on May 13, Russia and U.S were able to reach an agreement on the landmark arms to reduce nuclear arsenals for both countries by up to two-thirds over a period of the next ten years.

Meanwhile, The Osbourne’s, MTV’s reality TV show debuted and at the same time the O Brother Where Art Thou’s soundtrack recording won a remarkable five Grammy awards. Sadly, deaths related to AIDS were anticipated to hit the roof if no serious preventative measures were not taken.
