Web sites come and go, but has been manning the ramparts and debunking the latest war propaganda since 1995. We're an institution, an old standby, and you count on us to bring you the real story behind U.S. foreign policy. But institutions, no matter how venerable, don't run on air. We need your support to keep going.

We have managed to survive all these years by giving our readers a service they can't do without – providing knowledge and guidance in an area where the facts are often hidden and easily distorted. And the War Party is good at distortion, as recent history shows.

We debunk war propaganda 24/7: that's our job, and it never ends. But we aren't complaining – we're just asking for your help. Please, donate what you can, because the cause of peace is worth it.
