The war plans were
finalized, the war planes were on the tarmac, and the news media was salivating
for some "shock and awe" but the bombing of Syria never happened!
That's because a broad-based
movement spanning "left" and "right" rose up and just
said NO! That cry of protest was resounding enough to scare Congress
and the White House into saying "Never mind!"
Antiwar.com was a
vital part of that protest: every day for weeks we headlined the crisis
and urged our readers to call Congress. In our news and opinion columns

we expose the Syrian "rebels" for the thugs they are, and we
kept blasting away at the phony rationale for this war: that it was a
"humanitarian" effort to "save lives." Yeah, and War

But they're already
ginning up another war this time with Iran and we can't
let down our guard. Eternal vigilance is the price of peace as well as
liberty. Antiwar.com is needed now more than ever but we can't
