We're Living on the Edge

The edge of bankruptcy, that is. And it isn't pretty. It's bad news not only for us, but for you – because you'll be getting less coverage, less frequent updates, less of everything you've come to expect from this Web site.

Yes, we did get a surge of donations after we put up our last desperate appeal – but not enough to avert drastic cutbacks.

You'll be seeing the effects of those cutbacks very soon. With a much-reduced staff— see ya, Eric! – we'll be bringing you just the basics. No more comprehensive coverage – forget about those daily compendiums of news from Iraq. And of course one of the first things to be cut is the already pitiful rate we pay our long-suffering columnists (oh well, Justin's used to extreme poverty).

For over a decade, Antiwar.com has carried the banner of the antiwar perspective in cyberspace. We regret very much that we're forced to cut back at the very moment when we're needed most. Unless we get a last-minute influx of contributions – which, we remind you, are tax-deductible – the sad fact is that we'll be forced to slash services immediately.

Save the country – save Antiwar.com. Contribute today.

On the first six days of our drive, 917 of you gave a total of $46,321. We need to pick up the pace. Please help us reach our goal of $70,000 to keep Antiwar.com running for the next quarter.
