hard to imagine the following scenario: another
terrorist attack, a declaration
measures," and suddenly your screen goes blank when
you click on the old familiar bookmark for Antiwar.com. Or
perhaps your computer registers an ominous error message:
We can't know what the future holds can we? but it's best to plan for the worst: and, these days, sadly, we have no reason to expect anything other than the worst. Which is why the ongoing struggle to keep Antiwar.com up and running takes on new importance.
In the early days of Antiwar.com, when we were virtually alone pointing out the stupidities and tragic ironies of the Kosovo war, we didn't even have time to interrupt our coverage for what we now call "Pledge Week." We were updating the page by the hour, and posting daily editorials denouncing an unjust and unprovoked war on a nation that had never attacked the U.S. and represented no threat to us. (Sound familiar?) Our opposition was rooted, not only in moral outrage, but in the recognition that this war would set a terrible precedent one that would unfold in the Middle East.
We aren't happy about how right we were: frankly, there isn't much to be happy about these days. Every morning the informed among us wake up to wonder if we're at war again. It could be Iran, Syria, Lebanon or someplace else. You never know where the Empire is going to strike next.
Unless, of course, you're a regular reader of Antiwar.com.
Our readers keep themselves informed because, these days, they have to. The Warmonger-in-chief could order the troops into action tomorrow or the day after the election.
But if he does, one thing you can count on: we'll be the first to have the news online along with analyses from the experts.
We're watching the War Party,
and have been since 1995. Featuring up-to-the-minute coverage
and commentary, Antiwar.com's editors and researchers comb
the worldwide web for the latest news and analyses of our
rulers' war plans.
We're on guard duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we don't need much to stay alive. Just the antiwar equivalent of MREs and so we're turning to you. The Army of Peace needs to stay alive, somehow and we depend on you, not the U.S. Treasury, for provisions.
Drive will be going on all week, but the sooner you
give, the better. We get plenty of letters saying "good
job!" but just remember, we can't do it without
your support. So make
your tax-deductible contribution today.
