The War Party Is Rich …
and they never sleep.

As war profiteers channel multi-millions into the coffers of countless pro-war think tanks, the under-funded antiwar opposition has one big advantage: we have the truth (and a federal prosecutor or two) on our side.

As thankful as we are for the support we are getting in our spring 2006 fundraising drive, so far it just isn't enough. If we were on the payroll of the War Party, however, you can bet we wouldn't have to beg for funds every quarter, essentially panhandling our readers who are used to getting complete and comprehensive coverage of world affairs for free.

Except for one thing: nothing is free. Yes, you can access without charge, and we're always there, continuously updating the latest news of our war-torn world. But will we always be there? Don't be so sure. Because if we don't make our fundraising goal of $60,000, we may very well not be. And that would be very bad for the cause of peace.

We won't blow our own horn too much, except to say that we know our value as a resource. We don't need much to get by – compared to the well-oiled propaganda machine maintained by the War Party, our little operation does very well on a mere pittance.

But we need that pittance, and we need it now. So, please, let's get to it: click here and contribute today.

In the first two days of our drive, 302 of you gave a total of $16,819. We need to pick up the pace to reach the $60,000 to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
