is all over the Internet these days, with the African Command establishing
a pair of "news" sites touting its interventionist agenda across
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 Antiwar.com 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, Antiwar.com 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 Antiwar.com. Help
level the playing field by donating today.
