Is the President Preparing to Bomb Iran?

There's good reason to believe that the bombs will be falling on Iran before George W. Bush leaves office.

The plans are already in place, and the rumor mill is churning. We're hearing the same malarkey about "weapons of mass destruction" from dubious exile groups, an identical note of hysteria, and, ominously, the same level of bipartisan support for aggression. Yet we can stop this war before it starts – if we start debunking the lies early and often.

Will be up to the job?

That's totally up to you. Because, you see, we depend on our readers to support the site: every quarter we conduct a fundraising campaign for a week to raise the money we need to continue. And it's that time again – a time when the need for has never been greater.

We can't do that, however, if we aren't up and running – and we won't be if we don't make our fundraising goal this time around. It's that simple.

The War Party has no problem raising funds: big military contractors, the oil lobby, the special interests – the loot pours into their coffers without respite. We, however, have a much tougher time of it, and it's particularly tough this time, with many of our usual contributors having sent their dollars to political campaigns.

Your 100% tax-deductible contribution is a blow struck for peace, and each dollar you send goes a long way. We run a very tight ship, and you can bet you'll get a very big bang for your buck. Every day, we reach around 100,000 readers with our message of a peaceful, noninterventionist foreign policy. It's the most effective weapon in the arsenal of the antiwar movement – so let's make sure it's operational when we need it most.

Send your contribution today.

On the first day of our drive, 128 of you gave a total of $5,242. We really need to get going to reach the $70,000 to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
