I was sitting here replying to posts and answering post and started to think what are the most controversial issues in the world in 2008? The food crisis, Darfur, bio-fuels, pollution, oil prices hitting all time highs, Iran testing Nuclear weapons, the war on terrorism, climate change(global warming), Iraq in general, Polar bears, Immigration, Elections in the USA, North Korea... Please answer with what you think and explain why.

Iraq was certainly very controversial a couple of years back but faded from view in 2008, presumably as both parties move towards withdrawing troops in a couple of years time. The fuel price rises were very controversial but then became less salient in the last couple of months as oil prices went down, in this Obama was lucky as he was a bit on the defensive here. Immigration certainly was very controversial also and didn't help the Republicans in key states in the Midwest. In the end though, all these issues were overshadowed by the economic crisis which blew McCain away and gave Obama the keys to the White House.

Illegal immigration would get my vote for being the most controversial issue of 2008. It's been a very hot topic that people are very passionate about for various reasons...closing the boarders...what to do with the people already here...and is still unresolved.

Gay rights have also been a big issue in 2008 - especially gay marriage.

I think the most controversial is the Union of North America... The Union of Mexico, Canada, and the changing of U.S dollar to the Amero currency with the matching of the FEMA the coffins made for.......The Americans as said...I was hoping that most knows about this controversials.
