Militarism Is On the March

What is happening to our country?

That's what millions of Americans wanted to know as they were swept into a war based on lies, and anyone who dissented was smeared as a "traitor" and "unpatriotic." It's bullsh*t – but it seems to be working! They're getting ready to march into Syria and Iran next – and who will stop them?

You, the American people, that's who.

But you can't do it without knowledge – and that's where comes in.

We've been bringing you the news of the world's wars – and exposing the War Party as liars – since 1995: is updated continuously, with the latest news and bulletins, the hardest-hitting commentary. We depend on you, our readers, for the support we need to stay online. We don't have the tremendous resources of the U.S. government at our disposal, nor do we have the big neoconservative foundations – or any foundations – paying our bills. Without the money that comes from our quarterly fundraising drive, we would be out of business in a minute – and we will be out of business, if you don't come through this time. is needed now more than ever. The War Party never sleeps – and we, who are for peace, can't afford to be caught napping. A dangerous militarism is taking hold in this country, and is in the front lines fighting it. But we can't do it without your support.
