We interrupt this war hysteria to give you a special message from Antiwar.com:

They're saying the US is poised to strike Syria by Thursday, and the air is thick with war propaganda. That's why we've shrunk this fundraising pitch – to make way for essential coverage. We're busy debunking the War Party lies – which are coming fast and furious – but we can't do it without your financial help. And don't forget, your contributions continue to be matched 100% by our angels. Please make your tax-deductible donation today!
