Between the Covid-19 pandemic and the civil unrest in the homeland, even fewer eyes are on U.S. foreign policy than before. Hopes of a global ceasefire to combat the pandemic are long gone, and the crisis has only emboldened the War Party in Washington.

Here at, we will continue to monitor all U.S. wars, from the new Cold War with China to the shadow war in Somalia but we cannot do it without you. Please, donate today to support independent journalism that will always be a thorn in the Empire's side.
