Don't Take Us
for Granted!

Sure, is everywhere acknowledged as the Web site to go to for news, major and minor, about the war plans of our rulers. The Washington Post just quoted us in an article on Barack Obama, we get name-checked in New York magazine and Investor's Business Daily, and we have endorsements from prominent figures on both sides of the political spectrum, from Daniel Ellsberg on the left to Pat Buchanan on the right.

But you can't take us – and our continued existence – for granted.

Because, you see, we depend on the contributions of readers like you to keep us afloat, and take our word for it – it isn't easy!

Yes, your contribution is 100% tax-deductible, and you can contribute online – but each quarter it's still a major drama getting the $70,000 we need to keep going. Without that influx of much-needed funds, we are sunk.

No, we don't like interrupting our coverage of vitally important war news to make this quarterly appeal to our readers, but the alternative – selling out to some corporate entity, or else making our pitch to a few big donors – is not an option, either. That's because we value our independence and our editorial integrity: we don't toe any party line, and our only commitment is to you – and the truth.

You can help keep the only independent, nonpartisan, freewheeling – and certainly the biggest – antiwar Web site going – by making your tax-deductible donation today.

$70,000 is what it takes to keep running for the next quarter. Please help.
