Polls show Americans want out of the business of running the world. They're sick of perpetual war and they think Washington should mind its own business. And yet we still hear the war whoops of the politicians and their pet pundits, intent on ginning up new wars for other people to fight.

The reason for this disconnect is that the War Party has a powerful Washington lobby: they give money to elected officials, they have a firm hand on the "mainstream" media, and they live all in the Washington bubble – where running the world is just another day in the lives of Very Important People.

Outside the Beltway, a rebellion is brewing – as the public response to Obama's decision to bomb Syria showed. That time, the public rose up and said "NO!" And the politicians backed down. was a big part of the campaign to stop that folly – but we can't continue to mobilize the public for peace without your help.

Please make your tax-deductible donation today – so we don't wake up tomorrow and find ourselves at war once again.
