Say No to the War Party

The neoconservative cabal that lied us into war is emboldened, empowered, and bursting with bloodlust. The sacrifice of yet more Americans – and despised Middle Eastern Arabs – on the altar of the war god has them drooling with sweet anticipation. They have no compunctions – no "second thoughts" – about their disastrous policy of war and occupation. The casualties, the chaos, the rise of the American bully as the Bull Connor of the world – from their sick point of view, this is a great success.

How did they do it? How did they pull the wool over the eyes of a nation and lead us by the nose into the abyss of endless war?

In a word: Propaganda.

Their campaign of lies – pushed by the pro-war media, in concert with the well-funded thinktanks and Washington's ever-present insiders who profit from war and preparations for war – is rolling in money. The U.S. government, the war industry, the big neocon foundations with multi-millions at their disposal – they are using all their resources to propagandize the American people with their message of hubris and fear. is engaged in a counter-propaganda campaign, and our role is more important than ever. That's why we can't let the enormous resources of the War Party deter us from continuing to speak truth to power. We don't need their billions – but we do need your support in order to continue the fight.

So far, you've been very generous, with 447 of you contributing over $20,000 in two days. That's wonderful, but we can't stop pleading until we meet our goal of $50,000 for this quarter.

We need you to help us get out the truth. Say no to the War Party. Contribute today – so that we can live in a better tomorrow.
