I want to congratulate Reuters on another great year. Your in depth coverage of world and current events is bar none the best.You leave all other news organizations in the dust. That photo say’s it all. A picture that is worth a thousand words.

Please keep up the excellent coverage.

Soldiers in war usually know why they are fighting.
I believe this war is much like Vietnam, in that the war is endless and the enemy too difficult to identify.

wanna bring the wear to an end quickly, then stop all buying of oil from the midle east.
Suddenly jew, muslum, persian, and christan will be working together.
The little people (soldiers) are disposable pawns for the big companies greed.

I want to congratulate the Iran team led by Parisa Hafezi for their in depth and accurate reports despite so many barriers set up by the Iranian government to make reporting next to impossible for all news agencies especially the foreign teams like Reuters.Reuters reports helped international broadcasts like Voice of America and BBC to stay on top of the events in Iran during the tumultuous summer of 2009 and subsequent months. Kudos to all of you.A job well done.
