The Pentagon is all over the Internet these days, with the African Command establishing a pair of "news" sites touting its interventionist agenda across northern Africa.

The Pentagon has deep pockets, and it never does anything on the cheap. With a $3 million annual budget, these two propaganda sites are claiming 4,000 unique visitors and 10,000 page reads daily.

That $3 million a year is a princely sum, far more than we at could ever hope to raise in donations. Fortunately, we have 17 years of experience running a tight ship: with just a fraction of their budget, gets well over 10 times the readership of these two military sites combined.

Are we really just that much better at this than they are? Maybe, but that's only part of the story, and in addition to our dedicated, talented staff we have another advantage they'll never have: we're telling the truth.

AFRICOM is never going to ask you for money, because the government can just take it right out of your paycheck. You have no choice about that, but you do have the choice to reduce the amount of money the Pentagon takes from you by making a tax-deductible donation to Help level the playing field by donating today.
