A group of our major donors have pledged to match up to $34,000 for every dollar that is donated to Antiwar.com. Unlike the "defense" companies the War Party bails out with billions of taxpayer dollars, we actually earn our funding by providing unmatched coverage of Washington’s wasteful wars. Please help us secure these matching funds while doubling your donation!

Please make your tax-deductible donation today!
