Yes, "the clock is ticking" – that's what President Obama said about Iran during the campaign, and now that voting's over, that ticking is getting louder. That means we are on the brink of war with Iran – and only an informed public can stop it.

Did you ever wonder why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu backed down from his threat to unilaterally attack Iran? It's because the president reassured him an attack was coming if certain conditions weren't met – and those conditions, the complete surrender of Iran to American interests, are highly unlikely to be met. That's because the West won't settle for anything less than regime change in Tehran – and that means war.

The clock is ticking for, too – because if we don't raise $80,000 in the next few weeks, we'll be in big trouble. The War Party has unlimited resources, but we're at the end of our financial rope, hanging by a thread. We need your help and we need it bad.

You can help stop the march to war – by making your tax-deductible donation now. Because when that clock stops ticking, believe you me, all hell is going to break loose. Stop it before it starts – make your contribution today.
