We're Going Under ...
Unless You Act Now


After an initial surge, the flow of contributions to our fundraising drive has slowed almost to a crawl. If this keeps up, we could be witnessing the end of Antiwar.com as we know it. If we don't make our minimum fundraising goals, we will most definitely be making radical cutbacks in our coverage, including no updates for days on end and the de facto end of the best, the biggest, the most informative antiwar Web site of them all.

Is this how you want to start off four more years of the War Party's hegemony in Washingtion?

You use this site for free. But you know what? Nothing is free.

We're not a fancy operation: no executive lunches (heck, we don't even have any executives!), no frills, no folderol. Antiwar.com is all about the basic business of getting out the facts, and keeping track of the lies our government is constantly putting out there in order to justify the unjustifiable.

Somebody has to do it.

It is ridiculous that we have to get down on our knees and beg like this no less than four times a year. It's ridiculous because we've earned your support several times over. Antiwar.com is now one of the most popular all-news Web sites on the Internet and we did it without corporate backing, without big donors, and without the ceaseless plugs from the so-called mainstream media that pushed the much-overrated "warbloggers" to the fore.

Bluntly put, we will go out of business very shortly if we don't make our goal. Starting this Monday, we may be making radical cutbacks in coverage and personnel if we don't make up the shortfall on Friday and over the weekend. As of last night, 719 of you have contributed $30,000. We need to reach $50,000 in order to continue for the next quarter.

We just can't continue without your support, and if you think that's fundraising hyperbole, then think again. Please make your contribution today so that you don't wake up one morning, go to your computer, log on to Antiwar.com and come up with nothing, nada, zilch a blank space where the truth should be.

Please help us keep up the good fight.
