We're finally approaching the homestretch with the spring fundraiser – which means we're not quite there yet. We're about $11,000 short, which means we'll still have to cut back on essentials if we don't make up the difference. Please help put us over the top so we can make our goal and get on with the business of debunking the War Party's lies. Your contribution to Antiwar.com is 100 percent tax-deductible – and wouldn't you rather give it to us than to them?

Please make your donation today.
