We were right about Afghanistan – “the real quagmire awaits us,” we said, and fifteen years later we’re still there.

We were right about Iraq – there were no “weapons of mass destruction.” The war spawned an insurgency that grew and spread throughout the region – just like we said it would.

We were right about Libya – as America intervened, we said that country would fall apart, and we were right about that, too.

And yet the pundits and “experts” who called for war are highly paid, while our writers receive a pittance – if anything! – because we can’t afford to pay them what they’re worth.

It’s just not right. Please help us even the playing field – make your tax-deductible donation today.
