Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

As the UN General Assembly decides whether to authorize the use of force against Iraq for its non-compliance with UN weapons inspections, Washington has signaled that it plans to move ahead with preparations for unilateral air strikes against Iraq. While a Security Council resolution yesterday condemned Iraq’s latest actions, it did not mention the use of force. The Clinton administration says that it has ample authority to attack Iraq under previous UN resolutions.
