EMERGENCY ALERT!

Okay, we've been patient. We haven't harangued you, guilt-tripped you, or even really badgered you all that much – but now…

This is an emergency alert. No kidding. Look – just look! – at that thermometer. It's waaaay short of mission accomplished. If this goes on, we'll be reduced to bare bones, if not finished entirely. You'll see BIG cutbacks – in coverage, quality, and attention to detail. That means less original reporting, less diversity of authors, less of everything that makes Antiwar.com unique.

And this comes at a time when we need to be at our best – because the international situation really does merit an emergency alert! All too many serious analysts and insiders are convinced that President Bush plans on attacking Iran before his term is out. Who will keep you informed?

Remember all those times you found a story on Antiwar.com that made it all fall into place: it might have been a news story you hadn't seen anywhere else, or an opinion column that gave you some new insight. How much is that worth? If you come to Antiwar.com every day to find out what's really going on, what would you do without it?

Just because we've been providing an indispensable service for over a decade doesn't mean we're financially secure. The truth is, we survive solely on donations, most of them 50 bucks or less, from our readers. The War Party has ridiculously large amounts of cash at its disposal; we live hand to mouth.

Yet we have managed to exert a degree of influence on public opinion far out of proportion to our financial resources. With Antiwar.com, donors get a mighty big bang for their buck. We just need to reach that magic number – $70,000. That will at least get us through the crucial days ahead, when someone must debunk the pro-war narrative.

Give as much as you can, and give it now.


On the first four days of our drive, 591 of you gave a total of $29,132. We need to pick up the pace to reach our goal of $70,000 to keep Antiwar.com running for the next quarter. Please help.
