The terrorist attacks of 11SEP2001 for me. It set up the next two decades, and continues to influence US policy. The decade between 2000 and 2010 can be understood as a conflict between government power to provide security and the right of the populace for privacy and the adherence to the ideal of due process of law. That conflict, as important as it is, has not yet been satisfactorily resolved.

The subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq would not have occurred but for 9/11. Those invasions at one hand reaffirmed the supremacy of the West in conventional warfare, but exposed the weakness of existing counterinsurgency tactics. From here on, it is reasonable to believe any invasion will be accompanied by a counterinsurgency period, which may extend for a decade or more.
