Brazil Sold Sean for an Economic Deal, Says American Boy’s Grandmother

    David, Bruna, Sean

    David, Bruna, Sean In an interview with the G1 website, this Wednesday, Silvana Bianchi, grandmother of Sean Goldman, the 9-year-old American boy who was abducted to Brazil by his mother when he was 4, said she will have the worst Christmas of her life. "They are separating two siblings," she said, referring to her granddaughter, Chiara, who is 1 year and 3 months old.

    One of her disappointments, Bianchi says, is that the Brazilian Justice didn't allow the boy to express his wish and decide by himself if he wanted to stay with the Brazilian family or go with the father to the United States.

    For her, they transformed her grandson into an "object of a political and economic agreement." She mentioned the news she read at the BBC Brazil reporting that the U.S. Senate has approved unanimously an extension of the tariff exemption program that benefits exports of Brazil and 131 other countries. The vote had been postponed and only came after the Brazilian Supreme Court ordered the delivery of Sean to his father.

    Bianchi stated that she was "shocked, sad, disappointed and embarrassed" at the decision taken by Gilmar Mendes, Brazil's Chief Justice, who ruled against an injunction she had won to keep the boy in Brazil till he could be heard by the courts.

    On Tuesday, Sean's grandmother released an open letter to Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Her lawyer, Sergio Tostes, announced this Wednesday they don't want to file any more appeals in the case.

    "I did not expect my grandson would be exchanged in an economic agreement. We do not currently intend to do anything related to what happened. My country, Sean's country, since he is a native Brazilian, sold a child," she said. "He is being expelled of the country."

    "He was denied the right to speak. We are a democracy, but breathing the gag rule. His testimony would be essential," she added.

    Bianchi also complained that she didn't get any answer from the president to her open letter: "I'm disappointed, very angry. It is my grandson. He deserved more respect, an explanation," she concluded.

    Federal judge Paul Espí­rito Santo, from Rio's Second Region's Federal Regional Court (TRF) has ruled that the Brazilian family of Sean has until 9 am on Thursday, Christmas Eve, to deliver the child to the father. The measure was determined this Wednesday afternoon after Tostes announced his clients would no longer fight in court for custody of the child.

    Espí­rito Santo  has determined that the boy should be taken to the US Consulate in Rio.

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA
      Ignorant people here: Trying to find out which sh it stinks more American or Brazilian..

      This gringo1 and his IDs throw some coal into the fireplace and u morons start the fire while many of the insults from Brazilians and Americans are actually from him.. HAHAHA

    • ….

      Stupid People Here
      Laura is right.

      Cant you all see Gringo1 is acting as an American and a Brazilian blogger arguing with each other so real Brazilians and real Americans pick up a fight ? You are all being stupid !

      Let’s remember here there are many people outside Brazil and America who don’t give a shi.t about Brazil nor the US, they use this site and many of them enjoy a heated debate about Brazilians and Americans while they watch and enjoy..

      It’s very easy to spot Gringo1’s multiple IDs here and his impersonations of Brazilian and American bloggers arguing so you real people pick up the mess.. You fools…

    • Laura

      About Gringo1 here
      There are many people using multiple IDs here. If you check Gringo1 comments at the beginning he was placing a “at” character to every one of his posts. Then we have WOW ID who posts Brazil is insignificant with a “AT” character in the post.

      Easy to know who’s making a mess with people here with multiple IDs. (WOW = Gringo1 same person)

      It wouldn’t surprise me that he is even pretending to be an American AND a Brazilian with multiple IDs to trigger off a argument.

      Honey, you can mess about as much as you. It’s so pathetic and rather ignorant to say a country is insignificant. My point was made: even the tiniest countries are important, individuals like yourself are not.

      Like ASP and Purple Rain said: Why don’t you tell us where you come from ? The reason is simple: This forum people are faulting each other countries and insulting each other, and you don’t tell your country because you are a coward who likes tagging nations according to whether they are significant or not, but doesn’t want to put yours for consideration. COWARD.

      Anyway, you can pretend to be Brazilian and American bloggers arguing in order to get an argument while you, wherever you are from, just watch and enjoy…. I am out of your stupid game. Merry Xmas.

    • asp

      there was a “gringo” on here from canada
      so as i said, if “gringo ” wants to step in and verify that , its up to him, so he did

      which doesnt alter the fact that there are a lot of confusing identities on here and misconceptions thrown around

      gringo, ive vented on here before , about anti americanism, not about farps at brazil, no doubt, i just think a lot of insults are going on over this goldman thing for nothing , mostly coming from anti brazilinists first….and i wasnt commenting on your statement when you mistakingly thaught i did….and you cant shake yourself from that, take a chill pill

      im not avoiding anything, i said i dont agree with your entire portrayal of how brazilians are especialy in the sence that you can find faults in any countries system, i used an example again of an old colleague i just found out was railroaded to prison in the usa by his ex wife and he was innocent and he had heart problems from it, i hardly feel like screaming at brazils system, which by the way in this case worked over a long time, while hearing this about a colleague of mine happening in the usa…something i consider worse….false prison time trumps 5 years not seeing your kid in my book…if you end up with him…

      and i said i would engage purple rain on another thread some time (only based on anti americanism, because i dont throw farps at brazil, i love brazil, ill point out things like chavez with farc and farc raping brazil, that isnt anti brazilian, that is concern for what is happening), because ive seen this territory too many times on here , did engage with him before, and then the reality that it is a lot of false identities and misconeptions going down …it makes me want to step back and check this out for a minute….

      you wont even infom us of where you are from …and most every one else wont really tell where they are originaly from….so i dont owe you or any one here the satisfaction of behaving a certain way

      and im not interested in ganging up with people to get in dog fights on these issues….i like to work alone and deal with personal attacks….which you are coming close to making to me ……

      Can’t you read what Laura wrote? She said China has the biggest army in numbers (2 billon of them living there) and they’re modernizing themselves pretty quick. So don’t be so sure of your assumptions.

      Not that I wish China to surpass America, I believe its just another killing f-ucked up government like America.

      How can you be so sure? Your government has a history of getting involved in everything.

      Adhering to agreements is something America doesn’t understand, so not much of barking here. You broke the UN resolution against the War, you break World Trade resolutions. Not much of a high moral on the breaking treaty here ..

      Your crap in bathrooms are worth more than your words when it comes to treaties.

      As someone else said, on the day before Christmas, it seems especially ugly. I wish to end my visit here, by wishing ALL people of the world peace, joy, happiness, wisdom, and prosperity. More important than being an American, I am a world citizen, striving for peace and prosperity for all people. I hope our leaders find a way for us all to live together, supporting our mutual development and success. We are all the same people; all know suffering and wish for greater happiness; we are all the same; all one people. I pray for the people and leaders of all nations to work for the fraternity of all nations striving for world peace and prosperity. God forgive our all of our shortcomings, impatience, hatred, self-centeredness and greed, and help us all be better people with compassion, forgiveness, and kindness in our hearts, for the sake of our children and a better world. Merry Christmas everyone. May you be happy, peaceful and well. May no harm come to you, may no difficulty come to you. May have the strength, courage, determination, wisdom, serenity, patience, forgiveness, creativity, sense of humor and compassion to overcome the inevitable difficulties that life presents to them.

      If I have offended anyone unnecessarily with my comments here, then I wish to apologize. I only wish to redouble my effort to find understand with my brothers and sisters throughout the world.

      Peace to all of you. merry christmas!

      Laura, you said that I didn’t acknowledge the sacrifice of the British in WWII. Well if that is what you understood in my comments, clearly the UK, and every other allied nation that remained not occupied by the Nazis was a part of D-day. My words in fact were that every able-bodied man in the UK was involved, so in fact, now that I think of it, you seem to be twisting my words. the comment of Purple Rain was that the French mostly thank the French. Clearly all nations sacrificed immensely in fighting the Nazis, the Russians suffered immense losses (20 million people) and at a certain point after initially trying to aligned with the Nazis, even the Brazilians joined this effort, so his characterization against the US as hardly doing anything is ridiculous, and much like the exagerated hyperbolic statements and ad hominem attacks typical of this blog. At the time the US entered the war, it had an immense industrial capacity that was converted to work for the war effort. My original point was that elderly French people still remember the American soldiers with deep and sincere gratitude for the invasion of D-day and the consequent liberation of France. They probably equally celebrated in towns that were liberated by the British, but my original point is that it is not so black and white how you characterize the europeans as hating the US. Sure, there are protests in Norway against the wars in Afghanistan, and there should be. But Obama, is not GW Bush. His relation with much of the world is about dialogue and working multi-laterally, and while you may not think he deserved a peace prize for this, it is the main reason they granted it to him: he changed the climate of world politics from neo-conservative nonsense. He is now negotiating major nuclear weapon reductions with Russia, and he is engaging nations around the world in dialogue where Bush previously ignored them. And Purple Rain, you say that Iran is only a danger to Israel and the US. If Iran had nuclear weapons, they would pose little immediate threat to the US, but they would pose a threat to Israel, as well as any country nearby, including the European nations. This is not just a US issue: a nuclear attack, no matter how small, would be catastrophic in the world would be catastrophic. Consequently, most EU countries in varying degrees are allied with the US on this issue. Lula by hugging and befriending the president of Iran, and defending their rights to nuclear weapons looked reckless and insensitive. If Lula is making a deal with Iran for political or economic gain, and in some way contributing to Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons, and if Israel were attacked, then Lula, and Brazil would be complicit in an unspeakably evil deed. And if Brazil or Lula want to have a more respected role in world politics, they should befriend leaders who not holocaust-deniers, who have vowed to wipe Israel off the map, and who torture their own citizens now for protesting peacefully. Again, the case of the abducted boy and relations with Iran should be evaluated not from an American or Brazilian perspective, but from standards of universal reason, the community of respected world leaders understand this. Lula has fallen in my eyes by such an insensitive move. And the claim that Americans think the Amazon is nobody’s territory is more ridiculous nonsense. Every 6th grade American child can tell you that it is a region that overlaps numerous countries, but is primarily in Brazil, and is consequently, the territory of Brazil. Stop getting your news about the US from urban legends and TV novelas, and started reading some respected news sources. This blog is clearly lacking in in-depth investigative journalism that strives to report in an unbiased manner. Most of the stories here resemble a non-stop 24-hour infomercial pronouncing everything Brazilian as extraordinary, and everything American as evil. This blog is really a place for jingoistic mindless Brazilians to rant about how Brazil is the greatest country on earth, and no amount of reasons, or facts seems to affect such people. Granted, there are some voices here (Brazilian and others) who are measured and balanced, but much of it is outlandish trash talk that just reflects poorly on the whoever wrote it. I suspect that most sane Brazilians even get sick of this nonsense and go elsewhere. Folha de Sao Paulo maybe?

      Laura

      the only one I really insulted on this site was Cruela da Vil, Sean’s evil grandmother who meddled from the start and lost everything. She is the epitome of a “phucking kunt” and I must confess, I drew a small amount of satisfaction seeing her blubbering away like a school girl on the news today as Sean flew home. As has been repeated here ad nausea: Karma is a BIOTCH.

      I did mention the Brazilian Judicial system is, for sadly for many, corrupt. That’s something most agree with Brazil. That does not mean I am ANTI BRAZILIAN, except for thin skinned uber-nationalists. Do I need to write this out in coconuts on the beach for you?

      If you continue to provoke me, and taunt me into your childish game with purple helmet, I will respond in kind and I will not hold back I’d rather go on my merry way and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and have a nice new year.

    • James from Philly

      why Political?
      The point here it’s Brazilians know the US is a manipulative country, they manipulate with pressure and sanction for things to go their way. There was no need for this Sean case to go political and the US to make Sanction Threats against Brazil the way they did, but hey, that’s being American.

      Our Governement wouldnt have gotten involved at all if Brasil would have adhered to the Hague Convention. An agreement your country signed. The Brasilian System of Justice is a joke.. The facts of this case were crystal clear. An abduction, plain and simple. David Goldmanhas handled himself with American Determination and Class..

      If it had been my child, i would have taken a different path.. $20,000 would have gotten the child delivered to my doorstep.

      GOD BLESS AMERICA

      Laura I never said Brazil was insignificant. You, like Purple Helmet, need to learn to comprehend.

      As for purple Helmet, I’m not Canadian. Do you spend your entire life just making up reality in your head? What a waste to dump on a country that has absoltely nothing to do with the discussion. that is the apogee of retarded. here’s an idea, let’s insult Tuvalu just for scats n giggles? As well, pointing out flaws in US policy and with the judicial system in Brazil doesn’t mean being I’m anti American or Anti Brazilian. And the ONLY reasons I raised those isses was to highlight how easy it is, but useless in this particular thread.

      Child, you need to thicken up your skin if you’re going to survive in this world. Feliz Natal e um prospero ano novo.

      ASP is the most sensible person here. He’s an American living in Brazil and he stays impartial after listening to so much shit going on here. He’s not slashing out at Canada, US nor Brazil.

      Unlike Gringo1 who said that Purple Rain and ASP are slashing out at nations, this Canadian Gringo1 is the one having a go at all nations here. You are so pathetic.

    • Purple Rain

      ….
      I guess Zico summarises the concept of being American here: EVEN with a BRAZILIAN MOTHER, he smashes and trashes Brazil and Brazilians. Keep up with the American spirit dumbass.

      To the Canuck Gringo1:

      Well, I guess Laura has stolen my words…

      Your the biggest dumbass here. You agreed with me with my views of the American mass killing foreign policy plus insulting Brazilians.

      That’s why I asked you about your country. If you can insult two countries at the same time you come from Paradise.

      I am not even going to criticize Canada cuz Canada is difficult to fault. Compared to Brazil Europe US put together, Canada is the best in high living standards because criminals (alongside the population) they also need to hibernate 7 months of the year in Canada. Life indoors or underground is very safe. But underground living and hibernation are for rats and polar bears.. not for me, thanks.

      The point here is not Canada. The point here it’s Brazilians know the US is a manipulative country, they manipulate with pressure and sanction for things to go their way. There was no need for this Sean case to go political and the US to make Sanction Threats against Brazil the way they did, but hey, that’s being American.

      The Iraq war for example: Saddam and the US used to be good buddies, America even sold weapons to them, until Saddam decided he didn’t like America anymore, the US decided he was their enemy and therefore the world should see him as a world wide menace too. (not saying Saddam was a good person, he was a physco but not a world wide threat as the US wanted the world to perceive with those nuclear weapons he was hiding excuse to invade)

      The same with Iran here. We all know Iran is a threat to the US and Israel only. However, the US wants to convince the world if Iran is the enemy of America therefore he is the enemy of the world. That is why they are so pissed off with the Brazilian government befriending the Iranians.. HAHAHA how funny. you make enemies, you deal with them, got it?

    • Gringo1

      Chuva Roxa, you are a bitter little man aren’t you? Apart from your obviously flawed cognitive abilities, and your nonsensical use of misplaced and vapid hyperbole, the undeniable proof to your ” knuckleheadedness” is that you seem to think the country makes the individual. How fascist of you. You lash out at nations, and not individual ideas or opinions. Probably because you can only identify as a group and not an individual with original thought. Pitty for you. What would where I was born have to do with anything here? I mean really? NOTHING. But, you probably have a boiler plate xenophobic repartee for each and every country on earth. That’s the sign of a weak bigoted mind, and homme don’t play that.

      My whole premise in this discussion was to stop playing the ” nation bashing game” and deal with the facts of this specific case, something you and others on this board seem incapable of doing. I could care less if Cruela da vil was Brazilian, American or from Tuvalu – what she did with her daughter to Sean, and then later with the help of a horrible but connected family, was simply criminal.

      Now, you can take your piss and vinegar and built up disdain for the US, and probably 100 other nations that make you feel inferior, and go have a merry Christmas and a wonderful new year. Remember, you shorten your life when you bottle up hate by the gallon.

      Let me give you a little a comment about what you wrote here.

      First, the use of paragraphs does help with the reading. 😉

      [quote]As soon as the US entered the war, the whole tide changed against the Nazis, and all of the allied nations (Norway, UK, France, Netherlands,etc) celebrated this. [/quote]

      Listen honey, That is your US perspective. I lived in Britain, every October they celebrate about their soldiers in the WWII and how great they and how they contributed to the world with military technology developed there against the Nazis and used nowadays. They never ever acknowledge American soldiers. Why not ? Because they are way too proud of their soldiers.

      The same goes to you. What you get is your angle of the events. That is why you sound here as if the US was the key factor for the fall of the Nazis.

      The fall of the Nazis was a combination of many countries fighting against them and their arrogance to think they were superiors. We all know most of them died when they tried to invade Russia. They went unprepared for the harsh winters in Russia and most of them frozen to death. So mother nature plus their arrogance were also key factors on this.

      To be honest, after reading that in schools the American government started issuing books where stated that Amazon was an international area that belonged to no country, I am sure you are taught at your schools pretty much what you want to hear.

      [quote]But again, you have something like an adolescent view of the US and the world: far to simplistic, good guys and bad guys. You cite, some movie by the BBC about neo-conservatives in the US who wanted to impose their vision on the world. Yes, of course, George Bush and idiotic neo-con regime was despised world wide. Of course, they should have been. I am an american and I despised their policies as well, But Obama was elected, and all of that neo-con trash was swept in the garbage: Obama, despite his faults, is clearly more democratic progressive, multi-lateral, willing to engage in dialogue, and work with all nations. Yet, I guess this doesn’t fit with your simplistic demonizing of the US either. I lived in Europe as well: Prague. The Czechs, like most eastern europeans eagerly welcomed and loved the Americans: they respected our sense of democracy, human rights, and our continuous denouncement of their oppression by the USSR. I had a much better experience in Prague than living in Brazil where jingoistic Brazilians and anti-Americanism is rampant. [/quote]

      Honey, first of all this Purple Rain here said not to assume he’s Brazilian just because he despises American shit. In the other blog here: https://www.brazzil.com. We have an Australian saying America is not a democracy and Americans are the most deluded people. So Don’t assume someone is Brazilian because of that .

      Clearly you some issues about keeping up with world events. Much hopes that Obama would clear up Bush’s mess and atrocities and so far nothing. Unlike what you said, my dear, protests already begun in Britain. Purple Rain is right when he said your allies are governments and NOT their people. British people have always protested against the war and how their government gets manipulated by the US.

      Plus, read some news. Just before Obama went to receive his Nobel Peace Prize, he sent 40,000 new troops to Iraq and Afghanistan and like Purple Rain pointed out here the Norwegians went on to the streets to protest against Obama and the US.

      So that goes away your foolish comment that the Bush administration was over and Europeans kiss American bums in admiration and Obama is going to change the world. The nobel peace prize given to Obama and his country in war was the most ridicule in history.

      I will quote Jody Williams ( FORMER NOBEL PEACE PRIZE WINNER FOR CAMPAIGN TO BAN LANDMINES) words here:

      I think that it is kind of foolish to think that the Nobel Prize isn’t politicised – it’s not a humanitarian prize, it’s a prize in recognition of change in the world to contribute to peace, sometimes its a recognitions of visions for peace. He is facing huge contradictions as well – he is going to be sending 40,000 new American troops into Afghanistan just as he receives the Nobel Peace Prize? I think that is a contradiction that needs to be seriously looked at.

      Like the Australian guys said in the other blog here, Americans are the most deluded people, no doubt.

      purple rain: while you acknowledge that the Brazilians were negotiating deals with the Nazi’ while the entire US nation was dedicated to fighting the Nazis, you claim that Lula was trying to convince the Iranians to give up their nuclear weapons. No, you got this wrong as well. He said, in fact that the Iranians have a right to develop nuclear weapons. If Lula, and Brazil want to be respected as a sane voice in world politics, they would do better by not befriending the Nazi’s to make some kind of political/economic gain, and nowadays, not befriend Ahmadinejad who is know by all freedom-loving democratic fair minded people around the world as a tyrant, who denies the holocaust, threatens to wipe Israel off the map if they get nuclear weapons, and is now beating, arresting, torturing and killing his own people who are simply protesting in the streets against rigged elections and corrupt governing. And Lula hugs and befriends this guy, and you criticize the US for supporting undemocratic governments. Shame on Lula for hugging this tyrant, and shame on this grandmother who can’t look beyond her own selfish interest. there is something beyond Brazilian, and American values: universal values of reason and justice. None of the jingoistic trash spewed here in defense of the grandmother, or vile demonizing of either the US or Brazil has anything to do with reason or justice.

      Purple Rain, in response to my comment: “Ask elderly French people who lived under Nazi occupation what they think of Americans. They remain grateful to this day.” you wrote”
      I have as I lived in France. They remain grateful mostly to the British who went there to save them as when the Americans decided to do something about it, it was quite late the Nazis had already invaded France and killed their people. The Nazis got stopped by the Russians”. While I agree, that the Russians suffered the greatest losses in the war, you seem to know little about the monumental involvement of the US in WWII. As soon as the US entered the war, the whole tide changed against the Nazis, and all of the allied nations (Norway, UK, France, Netherlands,etc) celebrated this. You say the French were more grateful to the British “who went there to save them”. Now I am afraid you are showing you really don’t know your history, which is like many Brazilians I met. The US and other allies like the UK invaded France on D-Day. Search Wikipedia and read about D-Day. You will see that it was overwhelmingly an American invasion. Of course every able-bodied UK citizen would have been apart of this effort, but you seem to know very little about Americas sacrifice of 500,000 soldiers in this war. Just watch the Steven Spielberg movie Saving Private Ryan, and you will know about what these brave soldiers faced. They did it to free the world of fascism, which an elderly Frenchmen or woman will tell you. It has been well documented that the French greeted the Americans with hugs, flowers and gratitude. There were many joyous tears on all sides. We have loved the French ever since the birth of our nation when they supported our independence, as well as when Layfayette, a french general, came to the US to fight against the British. When the US, helped liberate France, they sent soldiers to the grave of Layfayette, and pronounced with equal respect and gratitude, “Layfayette, we are here”, to honor and remember his gift to the US, and our long historical respect for each other. Our constitution, was indebted to French Enlightenment thinkers like Rousseau, and Voltaire. But again, you have something like an adolescent view of the US and the world: far to simplistic, good guys and bad guys. You cite, some movie by the BBC about neo-conservatives in the US who wanted to impose their vision on the world. Yes, of course, George Bush and idiotic neo-con regime was despised world wide. Of course, they should have been. I am an american and I despised their policies as well, But Obama was elected, and all of that neo-con trash was swept in the garbage: Obama, despite his faults, is clearly more democratic progressive, multi-lateral, willing to engage in dialogue, and work with all nations. Yet, I guess this doesn’t fit with your simplistic demonizing of the US either. I lived in Europe as well: Prague. The Czechs, like most eastern europeans eagerly welcomed and loved the Americans: they respected our sense of democracy, human rights, and our continuous denouncement of their oppression by the USSR. I had a much better experience in Prague than living in Brazil where jingoistic Brazilians and anti-Americanism is rampant. If you are counting all the protests in Europe during the days of Bush, this doesn’t tell me much: hell, I was even protesting against Bush and the war in Iraq, as most sane people in the US did as well. The US has a mixed history like most super powers: they have fought stupid wars (VIetnam, Iraq, Afghanistan), and supported undemocratic regimes in South America, but they have also been a strong voice for freedom, and democracy. You insult so many progressive fair-minded Americans when you vilify us as simply “murderers” killing and torturing. The evil of 9/11 provoked Americans to vote for Bush, who unleashed the neo-cons, the war in Iraq, torture in Abu-Gharib, Guantanamo, etc. While these were heinous acts in response to another heinous act, this is not the entire history of the US. And while the US (as well as Brazil, China, India, and the EU) is dominated by a government strongly influenced by a wealthy ruling-class, there is another aspect of the US, which you disregard: more than the majority of us are part of a left-democratic force, which is often involved equally in some of the most democratic progressive initiatives in the US and elsewhere in the world. Many progressive intelligent fair-minded people around the world know this as well. Show some sophistication in your analysis and stop demonizing the US, there is far more nuance and complexity in our people, and our government. You sound adolescent and naive. This blog is dominated by such nonsense: the US = EVIL, Brazil is paradise. As someone said here: it is very boring and childish.

      À¢€œ[i]To put it mildly brazil is “UNIMPORTANT/INSIGNIFICANT” @ ALL LEVELS.[/i]” [b]Ohhh really?[/b]

      LetÀ¢€™s see if that is soÀ¢€¦. For example: If you fly domestically in the US, you are probably riding on a Brasilian made jet. If you go shopping at the groceries, you are most likely buying Brasilian products. If you drive American, Asian or European autos, in all likelihood it was made from Brasilian steel. And now, if you use energy to cool or warm your home, fuel to ignite your machines, I bet the origin of that fuel, if not now, certainly in the future, it will be Made in Brasil.

      Brasil ranks as the Eighth largest economy, the nation runs on surplus instead of deficit, Brasil has no external debt such as the US who uses China to finance its activities, and on and on and on.

      But you know what???? We would love to be ignored by the US. Your country, the US of A, despised across the world, is now on a fast downward spiral, and your time is over!

      WOWÀ¢€¦ You are the purest representation of fecal matter indeed. Good day,

      In another blog, I read an American stating that the America was attacked first, the World Trade Center came down and they have the right to defend themselves.

      Of course you have the right to defend yourselves, but the attack came from an organization not a nation. If you may recall, there was that American citizen lunatic who tried to blow up (or he actually blew up, cant remember?) an entire building. You didn’t just attack the whole US State because of the act of a man.

      This Al Qaeda attacked the World Trade Center within the US, not a country and none of those who did that were Iraqi nationals. So here we go with their pathetic principles and excuses to start a war.

      And if you remember after the attacks, the American government started finger printing foreign citizens but Europe, Australia and Japan. Lula said this was being racist and arrogant finger printing 3rd world countries only and not 1st world countries.

      Yes, sure that was racist and arrogant but it was also stupid too because a British national tried to enter US with a bomb in his shoes if you all recall that. Their anology and their arrogant way of thinking is so damn stupid… After that incident they kinda woke up to the fact that a terrorist can have any nationality and being racist is no good .. now they’re finger printing everyone.

      just so people understand that these opinions dont reflect the reality of how people really feel in brazil or america..there may be brazilians or americans who agree with them…but i wouldnt look at this forum as hardcast definitive opinions of the two countries populations….its more a place people vent…

      of course these people are welcome to their opinions…

      it would be my pleasure to take you to task with your statements about the usa, purple rain, but , the insults to brazil made in the various threads on this subject dont justify arguing with you about it

    • Laura

      To this argument here
      I understand where Purple Rain is coming from. Of course you need to be a non American to get it.

      In many ways he is right. The US resolves plus imposes everything with pressure and war. Even American bloggers here said: Bring Sean back or feel the power of American wrath.

      This type of idea (that they can gain whatever by pressure and military) is already built-in in their minds from birth.

      The US government is a big coward to be honest. They were ready to invade Iraq and Afghanistan but they do nothing about China. Every month there are more and more news about the Chinese spying and hacking American intelligence computers to gather American info and What do the Americans do? NOTHING.

      Not long ago, a chinese vessel threw water jets on an American vessel sailing INTERNATIONAL WATERS in Asia and yet the Americans didn’t do anything. No pressure there.

      What it seems to me, they pick a fight and pressure the weak just like macho men do. The strong ones like Russia and China, they stay quiet.

      I’ve seen the video from BBC above and yes, many of your politicians want not just to defend America but shape the world according to your ideas of how the world should be.

      I believe a 3rd world war is imminent. The Chinese has the biggest army in the world (in numbers) and they are equipping themselves in military technology, the Russians too and I don’t see them preparing themselves to attack Brazil or Iran but the US.

      IF the US was a peaceful country no other nation would feel the need to equip themselves for war.

Yet another Che-Wannabe. ONe thing I will mention regarding your completely absurb banana republic comments: You cannot EVER make even the most remote comparison between Brazil and the US, as you did so in saying “In America moral is just a word, they are f-ucking mass murderers and torturers. At least people throughout the world don’t burn Brazilian flags and don’t blow up Brazilian embassies like they do with the American flag and embassy.”

      How f-ing dumb are you? To have your embassy blown up, you have to actually be a participant in world politics. Brazil isn’t. This f-ing country is simply a banana republic with some off-shore oil. Which Americans and American technology will help produce. Here’s an analogy for a moron like you: Brazil is the Sunday feira, and America is the tourist walking through in the morning and seeing how quaint all the bullshit for sale is. We buy a table cloth and go back to out suites overlooking the beach. Then fly home in business class to our first world life in the US.

      and yes, yawn…., im bored with the subject…and fed up with the insults on all sides by the peanut gallery , which is all we are…i didnt indicate i was bored with your statement…i just dont agree with a lot of how you are putting it….

      i could come in here and defend the insults and tainted examples of history about the usa, but the generalised insults of brazilians coming from people and other americans on other threads related to this subject dont give much room for brazilians or fans of brazil to do anything but insult back even if they agree with the desician

      If you are so naive that the world admire the US watch a documentary by BBC called The War Party.

      Just a small synopsis for u:

      Panorama investigates the “neo-conservatives”, the small and unelected group of right-wingers, who critics claim have hijacked the White House.

      Throughout the war with Iraq, Steve Bradshaw was with the neocons in Washington – discovering whether they’re really trying to run the world the American way.

      Purple Rain: your anti American attitudes are pathetic and moronic. Many people do not like the US, just like many Brazilians do not. But this does not mean it is fair. Much of it is just “sour grapes” and resentment and envy. Also, many of these nations that hate the US (Iran, North Korea, China, Cuba, Russia, Venezuela) are ruled, in varying degrees, by repressive undemocratic impoverished regimes that need an enemy to hate, so the US is a convenient target of propaganda. In fact, many people in these countries also like Americans and see beyond the position of their governments as in Venezuela, Russia, Cuba, and Iran. For all its corruption and abuse of power, many nations and people look up to the US and consider us an ally, since they know, while not perfect, it continues to strive for greater justice and democracy in the world. If China does become the dominant super power in the future as projected by many, do you think they will provide the world with a better legacy of justice, democracy, and respect for human rights? Just look how they treat their own people and you will have a clue as to what they will offer the world. Just ask a Tibetan; it’s a pretty scary reality there. You also are fond of listing every war the US has been in as an indication that we are all murderers. How silly. The US sacrificed the lives 500,000 soldiers who fought against fascism in WWII, whereas during the same time, Brazil was trying to negotiate with the Nazi’s and benefit from trade with them as they seem willing to do with Iran nowadays. Ask any elderly French person who lived under Nazi occupation what they think of Americans. They remain extremely grateful to this day to the soldiers who liberated France from the Nazis. But I guess such history doesn’t fit with your simplistic adolescent black and white, characterization of the US as evil. You might also read about the countless charitable organizations such as those run by Bill Gates who give much of their riches to help the third world. Or you might consider the millions of Americans who volunteer around the world to work as nurses, engineers, doctors, teachers, etc, to help third world people. But again, this doesn’t fit with your naive ideas about the US. Yet despite such irrational unfair hatred against the US, I wish peace, justice, happiness, success and prosperity for all people of the world as we near Xmas, the birthday of Jesus, the prince of peace. We are all the same people: we all experience illnesses and suffering, and finally death, and we all strive for greater happiness. Your ugly malicious talk only poisons the paternity of nations we should strive toward. We need to supportive dialogue, not simplistic black and white rhetoric. We need to learn to live together, fighting for our mutual success and happiness. God bless all Brazilians who also searching for justice and peace among all nations.

      Have you travelled to Europe ? The Europeans are the ones who most go on strike against the American government. Take a look at the recent strike in Norway: Obama went there to get his Nobel Prize and the Norwegeans went on strike against that.

      Your allies are governments and NOT people. How naive can you be ?

      Take a closer look at your biggest Ally Britain: British people protest against their own government for supporting American atrocities all the time.

      Every time US presidents travel to European nations, Europeans protest against their visits.

      What you’re talking about: (Iran, North Korea, China, Cuba, Russia, Venezuela) those are the nations which would go as far as to declare a war against the US, unlike other nations like Brazil, Europe and the rest of the world just protest against American shit.

      Unlike what you think I don’t hate Americans, well just the moron ones on this site as well as your bloody government. I have many good Americans friends (the good, peaceful ones) who agree their government is a murderer and with whom I had the pleasure to travel to Europe and unfortunately they have experienced hatred and racism while there.

      Yes Brazil was trying to negotiate with the Nazi’s to benefit from trades like it does with Iran.. Yes what a shit talk. Brazil has always tried to solve things peacefully.
      And about Iran since you mentioned it, Well lm not a fan of Lula, but he said himself: America has no morals to ask Iran to give up their nuclear ideas.. Why did he say that? Because you morons have nuclear yourselves !

      It’s easier Iran to be persuaded to give up their ideas by a non nuclear peaceful nation than a nuclear infested war machine nation like the US.
