Needs Your Help to Keep Going

What We’ve Accomplished in Iraq

We keep hearing from the War Party that the news media isn't telling us the "good news" from Iraq. What good news are they talking about? Every time our soldiers build a school, or walk an old lady across the road, we're supposed to hear about it in mile-high headlines. This is Kafka-esque in light of what we've really "accomplished" in Iraq, including but not limited to:

This is what is really happening in America's newly-acquired province – and is right in there reporting the reality, as opposed to the government propaganda we're fed day after day. Giving you a clear, unvarnished view of the truth, as well as incisive hard-hitting analysis that lets the War Party have it right between the eyes – that's our job, and we're doing it.

But we can't continue to do it without you.

Your tax-deductible contribution makes it possible for us to continue our work. Without you, this site would disappear – and that's the truth. Because you know what? If we don't make our fundraising goal this time around, we'll be forced to make major cutbacks that will seriously curtail our effectiveness. We've been doing this on a shoestring since 1995: a decade of dedication to the cause of peace. Show your support by making a contribution today!

Make your 100% tax-deductible contribution today.

On our first day, 117 of you gave $5947 toward the $60,000 needed to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
