We're Almost Out of Time…

And nearly out of money.

Look, let's be frank. We have to make our fundraising goal of $60,000 by the end of this week. If we don't, we're in trouble – big trouble.

And so are you.

You're in trouble, because without Antiwar.com, how will you know when the War Party lies – and what the truth is? As the world comes undone, and our war-maddened rulers are on the march, who will rise to oppose their ruinous schemes? How will you understand the events unfolding rapidly around you, without the analysis you've come to depend on as a compass in the storm?

Without your support, there will be no Antiwar.com. We'll be gone, kaput, finished – and that's no exaggeration. It's the sad, unvarnished truth. And if we keep getting contributions at the present rate, that's precisely what will happen.

We run a very tight operation: if we fall short in our fundraising, we'll have to make big cutbacks. The effects will be immediately apparent. Less coverage, a lack of timeliness, and – who knows? – maybe even worse.

Time's a wastin', folks – the War Party is barreling ahead. Lebanon, Syria, and Iran are in their sights – and yet we are still trying to get you to wake up to the immediacy of our own crisis, and the necessity of continuing our work. Is it really necessary to point out why you can't afford to lose Antiwar.com at this critical moment?

Your contribution is 100% tax-deductible, which means that you can give your money to the War Machine, or you can give it to us. The choice is yours, but you need to make it today.


In the first four days of our drive, 578 of you gave a total of $30,132. We really need to accelerate to reach the goal of $60,000 to keep Antiwar.com running for the next quarter. Please help.
