By KEITH FITZ-GERALD | ETF | DECEMBER 11, 2012 If I didn’t know any better, I’d think there’s a small but growing group of people in Washington who think it would actually be good if we temporarily went over the fiscal cliff.

Conflict in Syria is an example of War 2.0

Another case of Slam Dunk, Yellow Cake, WMDs. By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | DECEMBER 7, 2012 Nothing makes a better case for war than fear.
