That's what we have to raise to make sure we stay afloat. Will we make it?

It's up to you.

I'm sure the War Party doesn't have to go through all this haranguing and harassing their contributors. If they need a coupla million to cook up a new campaign, all they have to do is call up one of the big neocon foundations, and say:

"Hey, it looks like the number of combat deaths in Iraq is about to hit the one-thousand mark, and we need a new war scare based on a fresh set of lies. Can you front us a few million?"

"Oh, no problem, dude. Say, where're you guys thinking of 'liberating' next?"

"Well, we haven't really decided, yet: Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia. So many Arab countries – so little time!"

"Yeah, I know what'cha mean. Ok, well, you know you can count on me."

"We owe you, bigtime."

"Oh yes, I know, and don't worry: I intend to collect."


The War Party can count on the power elite, the big corporate mega-giants that feed on government contracts, and the foreign lobbyists to stoke the engines of the war propaganda machine. They spare no expense in funding a 24-hour lie factory that just keeps on churning.

Fighting these guys is a full-time job. It doesn't pay all that well – Antiwar.com is a very lean operation, with far fewer employees than the mail room at the American Enterprise Institute, and, believe me, it's no picnic. We work every day, and we're always on call.

So, help put us over the top so we can stop interrupting your view of the news with these increasingly lengthy harangues. Yeah, I know, this one's a real hair-puller, but if we raise ten four thousand bucks in less than 24 hours it'll be over – and we can get back to our real work.

It's now or never – c'mon, help put us over the top!

So far, 843 of you have given $46,215 – getting close, we can make it, with your help.
