– In the Government's Sights!

The recent disclosure of a top-secret government program that describes the Internet as an "enemy weapons system" and proposes a plan to "fight the net" should come as no surprise to regular readers of

Hey, they're talking about us!

As the "mainstream" media fed us a steady diet of lies cooked up by our government and its journalistic amen corner, told the truth about Iraq – we said there were no "weapons of mass destruction," no "links" to al-Qaeda or 9/11, and no real prospects of implanting "democracy" by force of arms.

No wonder they want to "fight the net"!

Of course, we weren't alone in pointing out these discrepancies between fact and reality, but it's no accident that a lot of the criticism that later turned out to be right originated in cyberspace. Independent journalism flourishes in the atmosphere of freedom that the Internet makes possible. Our job at is to gather the best of this new generation of muckraking reporters, in the most comprehensive collection of foreign policy-related links and original articles you'll find anywhere.

And we do it every day, 24/7, constantly updating our coverage and working to give you the most up-to-date – and incisive – news and commentary from an antiwar point of view.

But we can't do it without you. We depend on our readers to keep us going. We don't have any big corporate sponsors or major foundations paying our bills: all that stands between us and oblivion is your 100% tax-deductible donation.

Make it harder for the War Party to "fight the net" – contribute today.

On the first day of our drive, 193 of you gave a total of $12,175. A good start toward the $60,000 to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
