LISTEN UP! (please)

It's time to make a vital point to our readers and supporters: if we don't make our fundraising goal of $60,000, we will have to make major cutbacks in our coverage.

As we teeter on the edge of yet another conflict in the Middle East – in Syria, in Iran, in Lebanon – is teetering on the edge of financial uncertainty – and possible disaster.

The need for has never been greater. The War Party has suffered a few reverses of late, but they are undeterred – and are actively planning to open up new fronts. The recent border incursions into Syria and the bombings in Jordan point to one ineluctable fact: this war is spreading.

There has never been a time when our ability to track the news – and debunk the lies – has been more essential. Yet now we are forced to turn to you, our readers, for the support we need to continue.

What it comes down to is this: Would you rather give your money to the War Machine (i.e., the U.S. government), or would you prefer to make a 100% tax-deductible contribution to the one institution that is dedicated full time to stopping the War Party in its tracks?

This is truly a no-brainer. So, c'mon, you guys and gals, let's quit shilly-shallying around: give today, or you'll regret it tomorrow. We don't want to make cutbacks in our coverage – but we'll have no choice if we don't make our fundraising goal.

It's as simple as that.

Please make your contribution today.

In the first four days of our drive, 705 of you gave a total of $33,196. We need to pick up the pace to reach the goal of $60,000 to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
