    Thanks to the writer of this list for giving me a laugh. The US gets not one but two bits of paper! You might as well add the assassination of JFK up there too, in that case. Blinkered, stupid, stereotypical.

    As an American, the US Constitution really does not belong on this list.

  • Gerardo

    What about 9/11?

    The poisoning of Mohammed is subject to controversy. According to most sources, he spat out the poisoned food and hence could not have been poisoned.

  • Umar Farooq

    Muhammad (P.B.U.H) was never poisoned nor he was killed. correct your article by reading Wikipedia source:

    God Bless All Of Us.
