    really britton?
    Let see what the brazilian opinion about england

    A Inglaterra não é um pais sério, não é um pais confiável e não merece respeito algum, pelo fato de não respeitar ninguém além de sua criatura os EUA. A história nos mostra que explorou o Brasil quando as “vacas estavam gordas” e nos abandonou quando “ficaram magras”. Nos roubou descaradamente conforme prova a história, corrompeu nossa justiça para prejudicar nossa industrialização (Barão de Mauá) e fomentou uma guerra para não perder mercado (Paraguai) e recentemente teimou manter as Malvinas.

    ” England is not a serious country,nor is to be trusted,and does not deserve any respect.It just a child from USA.History shows,that they explore Brazil,during the good years,and abandon us ,during recesion times.They stole us without any shame,as history shows us.Corrupted our justice system,to kill our industrialization(Barao de Maua),and instigated a war,so not loose a market,Paraguay,eand recently,is fearfull to loose Malvinas”

    So why the visit then, SiEster?

    Why the defence pact that was signed between Britain and Brazil in 2010?

    If you go putting your faith in politicians, then you are doomed to be disappointed. They'll change with the wind.

    Good to see a senior Brazilian minister in the UK for a visit. There are few “exclusives” in world politics, and the Brazilians will seek to get on with as many countries as possible, even if they have competing interests.

    “Tony Blair offered the hand of
    friendship to Moamer Gaddafi in a Bedouin tent outside Tripoli” some years ago.

    2011 UK bombing Tripoli is not amazing?

    Any thought?

    If it was about the oil then the UK would have taken Gaddafi up on his guarantee to supply all the oil we require as long as he stayed in power.

    Its about the oppressed people of Libya ... Bottom line !!

    Is there oil in Bosnia and Belize?

    NATO intervention in Bosnia
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_intervention_in_Bosnia

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_intervention_in_Bosnia
    1977 saw the Guatemalans actually move troops to the border. A second battalion was immediately despatched to Belize, supported by a close reconnaissance troop of Scimitar and Scorpion armoured vehicles, one field battery of 105mm Light Guns, several Blowpipe SAM detachments, a squadron of engineers and six Harrier VSTOL fighters, which were accompanied by an RAF regiment Rapier battery. A Royal Navy frigate on the Caribbean Station moved in close to the coast to provide cover against air attack near Stann Creek for the Battalion Group stationed in the South. When the Harriers landed, the Guatemalans ceased their warlike noises

    16 Artillero601,, your choice of countries is very noble,

    But you and your fellow blogger are aware [are you not]

    That in no way stops Argentina , from interfering and sending troops into any of those countries that you selected,
    After all Argentina an up and coming country that claims it defends the rights and freedoms of people, , so will we see Argentina sending in troops, to defend the innocent, ??
    Or as we all suspect you will wait until the French or the British or the Americans or the UN starts the ball rolling,

    As for Brazil, when will you amateurs, understand that she is a growing power, being courted by the big boys, she is friends with Argentina and Britain, and enjoys playing one of against the other,
    What ever suits Brazil, will be for them to decide, not Argentina,
    Remember there is a big big difference, between supporting you on paper, and backing you up with force, [always nice to know lol .]..
