  1. I'd like to make an editorial request.

    I often re-post antiwar.com articles to various social media, in an effort to reach out to the TV watching news consumers in my social networks, and try to present alternative narratives.

    I find antiwar.com articles often don't re-post well, headlines and article headers tend to not 'carry the lede' well for re-posting.

    This is just my opinion however, but it's more a formatting question…

    Keep up the good work.

  2. It is amazing to hear from President Obama, the leader of the world's most powerful nation in the world, to defy any logic and international law, and defend Israel and be in "lockstep" with her, violating all laws in attacking Iran. Israel is not faced with any threat from Iran (this cannot even be considered self-defense). Iran is the one faced with the threat to aggressive violation of its sovereignty by both Israel and the US. Read the editorial by WILLIAM H. LUERS and THOMAS R. PICKERING below which provides an easy blue print for further negotiation. Thanks

  3. I think that everything posted was actually very logical. But, what about this? suppose you were to write a killer post title? I ain’t saying your content is not solid, but what if you added a post title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Antiwar.com Newsletter | Feb. 4 Antiwar.com Blog is kinda vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write article titles to grab people interested. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.
