A TOUGH LOVE MESSAGE TO OUR READERS

Okay, so you're really beginning to tick me off – yes, I'm talkin' about YOU, the one who has yet to give a dime to our Summer fundraising campaign.

Look, I'm not going to say that you're a free-loading bum, or that you're the kind that takes, takes, takes, and never ever gives – although, you'll admit, I could.

But, you know what, I'm not going to get all angry and defensive over it. I'm just going to get that real hurt liquid-eyes look and speak in a real soft, wistful what's-it-all-about-Alfie tone about the way it used to be – and can be again between us.

I mean, who else gives you all the war news, all the time -- organized by topic?

Who gives better commentary – and can do it several different ways, from the sassy (Justin Raimondo), to the sublime (think John Laughland).

Who gives their all, working 24/7 to keep the site updated just to keep you happy?

Hey, is this a mash note, or a fundraising pitch? Well, a little of both. It's a chance to tell you how much we've appreciated your support in the past – and a plea that you continue to keep up that same level of support, now in our hour of direst need. The need for Antiwar.com, I think you'll agree, has never been greater. That's why we need you to come through for us, so that we reach our $50,000. Or else we just won't be able to go on. It's as simple as that.

Don't delay: give now, and we promise to stop hassling you.


So far, 691 of you have given $38,810 – picking up, but we need your help to make our goal.
