    Perhaps with that background she would be the biggest supporter of democracy, freedom of choice and expression, human rights and self-determination. Funny how people change isn't it!

    Often the oppressed are worse than their oppressors when they get a chance.

    Dilma’s picture deserves to be seen in full…..
    Notice the brilliant ”undercover techniques” of the valiant, American trained officers in the background…..

    It is an everlasting shame that Dilma Rouseff was treated like this by her own people.

    However, as a terrorist cell leader she did not prevent / was not aware of / whatever, when an American Military Officer was shot dead in front of his wife and children by members of her cell.

    I suspect that was why she never had a state reception on her visit to America. And if the mass of the population ever woke up to this she would most likely never get another other sort of visit either.

    'I don't Think' aka The Turnip in Chief: X-ray powers now you have? Or give yourself to the dark side you have!

    Where are the officers? Or are we talking about the two indeterminate figures in the background. Cunning stunt you are!

    @3 Hmmm, I came to the conclusion that she was thinking in that picture of how, even in 2012, the Brazilian government would be able to allow the extermination of Brazil's indigenous population. All so the urban-dwelling Brazilians can have dishwashers in their homes.

    You people who post on here and constantly talk about how the large Western countries like the U.K., America, etc. do terrible things in places like Iraq are hypocrites. It's going on in your own backyard. See, the thing is, indigenous populations were wiped out across North and South America for hundreds of years. But, it has stopped in most countries...except Brazil. It's going on there as you read this. So, those of you who think da Silva or Rousseff are heroes or saints or're either naive or you don't want to face the truth.

    “Often the oppressed are worse than their oppressors when they get a chance” - and this applies to Dilma how?

    Your link is broken.

    How true this is now! CFK and her cronies are out for vengeance

    During a visit to Brazil, un my way to Argentina, I spoke to a former member of the military who told me why he preferred the military - THINGS WERE STABLE
