The illustration to the right is from the Vietnam war era – a lighter engraved with the tragedy of those times. And it doesn't look as if the lesson of that war has taken hold among the politicians – who have been leading us into yet more Vietnams in the Middle East.

Homeless veterans beg in the streets, the economy is going down the tubes, and we're $13 trillion in debt – and yet all we hear are calls for "American leadership" to save the world.

Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya – the list of quagmires grows daily. When will we say "Enough!" When will America come home?

We're fighting the War Party every day: exposing their lies, countering their propaganda, and bringing the truth to the American people. But we just can't continue to do it without your financial assistance. Please – make your tax-deductible donation today.

Because those who won't learn the lesson of history are bound to repeat it.
