is an English-language website containing news and opinion pieces related to wars throughout the world, from a libertarian, non-interventionist perspective. The site was founded in December 1995, as a response to the Bosnian war. It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation, operating under the auspices of the Randolph Bourne Institute, based in Atherton, California. In previous years it was affiliated with the Center for Libertarian Studies. Prior to that affiliation they were an independent, ad-supported endeavor. It also features many leftwing and liberal writers, particularly Israeli ones. The American writers tend to be more paleoconservative and libertarian.


Personnel include Justin Raimondo (founder and editorial director), Eric Garris (founder and webmaster), Matt Barganier (editor), Jeremy Sapienza (assistant webmaster and senior editor), Alexia Gilmore (executive director), assistant editor Scott Horton, research director Jason Ditz, office manager Michael Austin, and administrator Michael Ewens.

The editorial position has been staunchly libertarian with a "big tent" message, arguing for libertarians, paleoconservatives, and the anti-war left to work together in opposition to war. The site carries a variety of anti-war columns, frequently reproving the actions of the "War Party." Columnists for the site include Justin Raimondo, Ivan Eland, Praful Bidwai, Ran HaCohen, Nebojša Malić, Alan Bock, Charles V. Peña, Doug Bandow, David Henderson and Joseph Stromberg. Other notable contributors who write exclusively for the site include Michael Scheuer, Aaron Glantz, Gordon Prather, and Jon Basil Utley. The site also includes various columns taken from the Internet, with authors ranging from paleo-conservatives (such as Ron Paul, Paul Craig Roberts, William Lind, Charley Reese and Pat Buchanan) to antiwar leftists (including Alexander Cockburn, Norman Solomon, Noam Chomsky, Joshua Frank, John Pilger, Robert Fisk, Kathy Kelly, Jonathan Cook, Cindy Sheehan, Juan Cole, Tom Engelhardt of The Nation, etc.).

" [ AntiWar Radio] " is hosted by Scott Horton (editor) and Charles Goyette. It features interviews with critics of U.S. foreign policy.

The site has consistently opposed all U.S. interventionism, from the bombing of Serbia to the present occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.
