Help Needed

I don’t normally do this, but this isn’t normal, either. needs your help. is devoted to the cause of non-interventionism and is read by libertarians, pacifists, leftists, "greens," and independents alike, as well as many on the Right who agree with our opposition to imperialism.

And they are in need of cash. Perpetual war for perpetual peace has exhausted the many dedicated staffers, readers and volunteers.

Why? One word: IRAN. The Bush Administration is determined to go to war with Iran whether the American people want it or not, and by 4-1 margins we don’t! Furthermore, America does not have the resources in this recession and already overstretched military to open a third theater of war!

Iran does not have nuclear weapons. They are not developing any either. President Bush could care less. To his thinking, they are the evil bad guys. They are not a threat to this nation, and they never have been. It has been nearly thirty years since the lowest point in Iran-American relations. Thirty years of rebuilding a damaged relationship. The Iranian people don’t want war, either. Bush would throw all of that away over a neocon fiction.

The consequences of such an attack would be devastating to our economy, and it would destroy what little credibility in the international community the United States has left. Oil would most likely blow past $250 per barrel and gas $7 per gallon. Consumer prices on everything would skyrocket, and the current recession could worsen, even becoming a return to 1929.

We don’t want or need that to happen.

So what can you do? is leading the charge against this lunacy. But they need your help. With your kind donation they can continue this fight and help us all work to avoid the economic and political destruction of America.

There are three things I’m pleading with you to do.

First, please donate here. Anything you can give helps. Everything you can give is appreciated would like to raise $25,000 by August 1st.

Second, please pass this request around. The more people that know about this need and this huge problem, the more that can be done, and everyone needs to be involved.

Third, contact your Congressman, Senators, and the White House on HCR 362. Tell them NO to war with Iran.

America’s future is in jeopardy. Can you afford not to help?

While I am not associated with in any way, I do support their mission.

For more information on how you can help, please contact Development Director Angela Keaton at or 310-729-3760.
