    Sounds like the -aim- may be helpful, if they create something like the Army Corps of Engineers.

    At 3,

    You turnip! RGs with nukes would be like a horse doing open heart surgery....a mess! You can't even keep standard vessels in decent working order! You'd end up killing more of your own kind trying to get nuke energy working!

    So Brasil and the RGs playing soldiers!!!! I can imagine what Brasil can bring to the table, but RGs?? They haven't got anything that isn't either impounded or broken! Airfarce? Navy? La campora?

    “Sounds like the -aim- may be helpful, if they create something like the Army Corps of Engineers.”

    Agreed, sounds benign and helpful ! Stability too.


    Helping people = good!

    Killing people = Bad !! Take a while to digest that.

    There will be a quiz. :-)

    No, no, it's an area of peace, no military activity here, no no.

    What does Brazil get from this, exactly, apart from a couple of battalions of cannon fodder to send to the front before their own boys go in?

    Sounded like to me they are just preparing for the deployment of Brazilian peace keeping troops for when the crunch comes in Argentina

    Sounds like a whole lot of nothing to me....

    Another one of those agreements that never does anything or achieves anything.

    Yup #9
    short term, jointly get ship back before the African states can get their act together.
    Short term, use Brasil's Bope to protect the Casa Rosada and ensure the lost bullets find the right marks.

    Aim: use lethal force of both countries to preserve the incumbents in power..... but, hey, if they also used Venezuelan forces they could call up their Cuban brigades.

    Seriously though folks, Unasur already have this agreement across the whole of South America.

    This is an encouraging development, given Brazil's reach in Africa...
