... which is why it may happen again

Thirteen days in October of 1962 – the world held its breath as the two superpowers faced off. We came within a hair's breadth of destroying all life on earth in a nuclear holocaust. Could it happen again?

The horrific answer is: yes.

The new cold war is upon us: Russia is again the Enemy. In Europe and the Middle East, we are facing off with them once again. It's only a matter of time before the threat of World War III looms large.

We're fighting to stop the new cold war – before it turns hot. But we need your help. Stand up against the madness: make your tax-deductible donation today.
