Eli Stephens, after a mention of other people´s marijuana medication,
"in a host of other countries, say for example Brazil, the chance that the
US is going to weaken the military vs. the government by suspending
military aid is pretty much nil"
In fact, the Brazilian military are NOT against the government, and for the
GOOD, not bad, reasons. They have decided that their most important enemy
are the powers coveting Amazonia, USA first and foremost.
They have thus moved all their war machinery (quite modest BTW) to the
Amazon Basin far away from the populated core of Brazil. They have
espoused a nationalist, Latin Americanist, view. They have been somehow
influenced by the Venezuelan experience. They are supporting any movement by
Lula towards a stronger and deeper Mercosur, they are very interested in
the incorporation of Perú to the South American alliance.
Thus, the US would LOVE to keep influencing the Brazilian army. BTW: the
new commander-in-chief of the Argentinean army is also of a nationalistic,
industrialistic, breed. He has already begun the transformation of the Army
units into hubs of material production the country over, thus linking again
with the best traditions of the patriotic armies in our country.
