Say Goodbye to

That’s right, as you know it is finished.

After 11 years of continuous operation, we finally ran out of funds: we cannot pay our staff, as small as it is. The reason: a lack of financial support from our contributors and supporters. It’s ironic that, as the war threat is ramped up, the number-one antiwar Web site is forced to scale back – or close completely – but there you have it. Perhaps people expect the new Congress, or James Baker, or some combination of both, to get us out of Iraq. If so, they are going to be sorely disappointed. But we won’t be around to comment on it, unless…

Unless, that is, you heed this final appeal.

Without partisan bias, we have featured writers on the Left and Right, and most points in between, with one goal in mind: to help forge a noninterventionist consensus in the foreign policy realm. No, we don’t try to please everybody; we make no secret of our libertarian affiliations, and we aren’t afraid to take controversial stands. On the other hand, unlike many "antiwar" outfits, we refuse to divert our focus to needlessly divisive, irrelevant side issues.

Look, we aren’t perfect. We could stand some improvement. Yet we are necessary, and you know it. Put not your faith in politicians, but in the vigilance of an informed people. That is the cause we serve – and it’s a cause that is in danger. Help save – make your contribution by clicking here.

In the first four days of our drive, 517 of you gave a total of $24,096. We are falling really behind in our effort to reach the goal of $70,000 to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
