Antiwar.com: A Word from Our Founder
When I began Antiwar.com in December 1995, a Democrat named Bill Clinton was in the White House. His bellicose foreign policy was largely supported by the Washington establishment. As the president bombed Iraq, Serbia, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Sudan, it was out of fashion to be antiwar, and opposing the U.S. Empire was left to a few “extremists” on both ends of the spectrum.
Since then, my hobby has blossomed into the most important and widely read anti-interventionist site online. Every day, our small but dedicated staff searches far and wide to find and publicize news and analysis that the mainstream media excludes.
Antiwar.com’s popularity boomed in response to George W. Bush’s post-9/11 global war on terror, especially his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. But remember: it was U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East in the 1990s and before that led to the blowback of 9/11, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the accompanying assault on our liberties.
Barack Obama promised to end the worst excesses of the Bush administration. Instead, his administration led the U.S. into violent intrigues in Pakistan, Yemen, and Ukraine in addition to instigating chaos in Libya, Syria, and Egypt… And to think that people once saw Barack Obama as the antiwar candidate!
The costs of war in lives, dollars, and our liberties are the same regardless of the party in power. The world needs a consistent and honest source in foreign policy reporting. That’s Antiwar.com. We are more essential more than ever — and we need you to keep us afloat.
The enemy we’re supposed to hate switches from year to year and often even week to week: one day it’s Saddam Hussein, the next week it’s the terrorists, the next year it’s the Russians. But the truth about what’s really happening can always be found in one place: at Antiwar.com.

US-backed Islamist „rebels“ are coming under fire from Russian war planes in Syria – and American fighter jets are being mobilized to defend them.
How close are we to World War III?
The answer is too close for comfort.
We’ve been bringing you the facts about US meddling in the Syrian civil war like no one else has. The mainstream media is siding with the „rebels“ – who are beheading their opponents, killing Christians, and imposing Sharia law on a war-torn nation. Now they are pushing for US military intervention.
Help us bring the facts to the American people. Keep us out of Syria.
