Dear Friends of,

Our matching funds are here: $31,000 that must be matched dollar for dollar for us to receive the full amount. Now is the time to make your tax-deductible donation.

Each week, it seems, a new "hot spot" pops up on our radar: Sudan, Taiwan, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Ukraine, the list goes on and on. These are regions where the U.S. government is either instigating conflicts or increasing their intensity.

We must wrap up our fundraising drive as soon as possible. Events are moving swiftly, and needs to focus on the job we've been doing, and doing with a small staff for over 28 years. No matter what the political winds, we provide our readers with original coverage of all the hot spots, giving both the context and the daily updates that make us a leader -- and a source of controversy!

Yes, we have a viewpoint: backed up with facts, not foolishness. We're accountable to no one and nothing but the truth. That's why our readers have come to expect no less.

The news won't wait for us to make our fundraising goal: the War Party persists.

Please -- help put us over the top. Donate today.

Give today, and every dollar will be matched!
