2020 has been a chaotic year: The lockdowns, widespread civil unrest, and presidential election! Despite all the chaos, the US war machine has been chugging along and Antiwar.com has been here to cover it for 25 years. From Clinton through Trump, we have delivered non-partisan antiwar news and analysis. Based on Biden’s dismal cabinet picks, peace will have a difficult four years. Help us keep going.
