End the NATO Scam

It's been 20 years since the cold war ended, and we're still "defending" our European allies – against a threat that no longer exists. We pay 70% of the costs of NATO, while our "allies" take long vacations and lollygag on the Riviera. Nice work if you can get it! A bigger scam has yet to be conceived – and yet they get away with it. Foreign lobbyists and the arms industry pay off our politicians and the media looks the other way.

But we aren't looking the other way.

Antiwar.com is leading the fight for a foreign policy that puts America first. But we just can't do it without your support. The other side has plenty of cash, and we have – just you.

Don't let the scamsters get away with it
