What We're Up Against


Anyone who thought Bush's second term would mean a moderation of the neoconservative agenda of perpetual war was bound to be bitterly disappointed and the bad news is already confirmed. The moderates are out the radicals are in.

They're talking about Paul Wolfowitz the intellectual architect of the Iraq war as the new National Security Advisor. Rumsfeld will stay and Colin Powell, the lone voice of moderation in the top foreign policy councils of this administration, is rumored to be on the way out.

Bereft of restraint, or common sense, this ideology-driven administration is determined to spread the gospel of "democracy" with evangelical zeal at gunpoint, whether the peoples of the Middle East want it or not.

The neoconservatives who took control of American foreign policy early on in this administration are only just now hitting their stride. It's war, war, and yet more war war without mercy. We must fight them, stop them, expose their lies and their motives but we can't do it without you.

Yesterday, 235 of you contributed over $12,000, and we thank you. But we need to raise a total of $50,000 this week to continue at our current level through the next quarter.

Forget the usual fundraising alarmism this country has never been in more danger. We are losing ourselves our character as a people in a bloody orgy of evil, and moral Americans must stand up and be counted.

Antiwar.com is your bulwark against the murderous madness that now grips the minds of our rulers. We track them daily, hourly, with up-to-the-minute reports of the latest developments and with solid analysis. We depend on your support and we need it now more than ever.

You can give in or you can fight back. Join us today in the battle to retake our country from the War Party. Your donation is urgently required now, more than ever.
