Unless we get a flood of contributions in the next couple of days, is closing its doors permanently: finis, good-bye, that's all, folks.

We've been at this all week, trying to bring home the point that is essential, that its demise is possible – and that failure to make our fundraising goal of $60,000 would be a disaster.

But some of you just aren't listening. Probably you figure that someone else will contribute, we'll somehow make it after all is said and done, and there's no need to panic.

Well, you're wrong about that. We aren't just crying "Wolf!" The wolf really is at the door. Unless you respond – today, right now – with the support we need, will shut down. There's just one way to stop this from happening – contribute.

Since 1995, we've been bringing you the real news and the best in antiwar commentary, 24/7: constantly updated, always on the big story. Ten years is a good long run, but the irony of it is that we'll be forced to close at the very moment when we're most needed. Meanwhile, the War Party is flush with cash, brimming with self-confidence, and eager to strike out at fresh targets.

We are running a very stripped-down – even brutally frugal – operation. No perks, no big salaries, no frills – but even with all our cost-cutting measures, we can't afford to go on without a basic minimum of support.

It's up to you, our readers, some of whom have been with us since the beginning. Do you really want a world without Somehow, I can't quite believe that. We do good work; we've been doing it for a decade. If you agree, then now is the time to show it. It's now or never…

Click here to make your contribution today.

In the first four days of our drive, 591 of you gave a total of $29,032. We need to pick up the pace to reach the goal of $60,000 to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
