But there’s no money in being consistently right – and so once again we turn to you for help.

Why should you support’s fundraising campaign? For one, we were the first Western media outlet to report the imminent re-invasion of Iraq – in this story written by News Editor Jason Ditz and published 4 days before the air strikes.

This illustrates the predictive value of you come here for the truth about US foreign policy – and we give it to you, without fear or favor. And this isn’t the first time we’ve scooped the rest of the media. We’ve been doing it for over 18 years:

  • When George W. Bush went into Afghanistan, we said it was a quagmire – and while neocons insisted we were wrong (and traitors, to boot!), it turned out we were 100 percent right.
  • When they said Iraq had "weapons of mass destruction" we said it was a lie. Again, the usual suspects yelled "treason!" – but if telling the truth is treason, then we plead guilty.
  • When the neocons claimed they building Iraqi "democracy," we said they were inviting chaos – and will deny the accuracy of our prediction?
  • When NATO pushed eastward we warned of a new cold war was in the making. Hardly anyone else saw it – but we did.
  • When we said Israel was turning into apartheid South Africa, Israel’s amen corner went ballistic – but we were right about that, too.

So what do we get for being right when most of the Very Serious People were wrong? We hope to get what we deserve – your financial support.

For all these years we’ve been telling you what’s happening in the world – before it even happens! That’s worth a lot more than you can probably afford to give, but please – give what you can. Make your tax-deductible donation today.
