Armistice Day was originally inaugurated to celebrate the end of World War I. President Dwight Eisenhower changed it to Veterans Day at the height of the Cold War, and it soon became the occasion for celebrating militarism rather than honoring veterans. Today it is a day of military parades and mindless nationalism.

The culture of militarism won't get swept away in a day – but we're working toward that goal: the day we can reclaim Armistice Day, and celebrate an end to the slaughter. But we can't do that without your help. Please make your tax-deductible donation to Antiwar.com – because it's time to call an armistice and short circuit our foreign policy of perpetual war.
