The Pentagon is asking for 800 more troops in Iraq and Syria supposedly to fight ISIS. This will bring the total to over 4000 – and you can bet more will soon be on their way.

That's because if you give the War Party an inch, they'll take a mile

This is being done behind the backs of the American people: most people just don't know about it. And by the time they find out, we'll be at war in Iraq again.

That's why we need you to help us sound the alarm. We've been fighting the War Party since 1995: but we can't do it without your help. Please make your tax-deductible donation today.
