The War Party
Is On the Run

help us put them out of business!

57 percent of Americans believe they were misled into war.

The majority believe the Iraq war wasn't worth it.

President Bush's popularity is at its lowest point ever.

We're at the tipping point in the struggle to roll back the War Machine. Americans are finally! waking up to the reality that they were duped into supporting an unnecessary and immoral war on Iraq, based on bogus "evidence" of Iraqi "weapons of mass destruction."

We need to put maximum pressure on the leaders of both major parties, and we need to do it right away before the war spreads beyond Iraq's borders. But we can't do it without your help. is closing in on 100,000 readers daily, and, while we aren't taking credit for the turnaround in public opinion, we had something to do with it. We've been around since 1995, bringing you up-to-the-minutes news and views on the foreign policy front. Thanks to you, our readers, we've survived this long and now we're asking you to help us again.

The War Party is on the run. Now is the time to put them out of business. This time it's crucially important that you give as much as you can as soon as you can. We have a good chance to win if only we have the wherewithal to keep up the fight.

Your contribution is 100 percent tax-deductible.
Don't delay contribute today!

On the first day of our drive, 169 of you gave a total of $9,215. A good start toward the $60,000 to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
