    The FALKLAND Oil and Gas industry working in the South Atlantic have an excellent safety record unlike Petrobras eh Brasso?

    There were no incidents there was a small gas leak that was repaired in less than 13 hours.

    Of which oil production Falklands are you talking about? You are comparing a drop of water to an entire ocean.

    Do not make me laugh!

    @ 2 Brasso

    You are so stupid you believe that crap.

    There again you think The Chief Crook, Lula, is Jesus Christ II.

    I hope somebody with balls nails the thieving bastard to a cross.

    3. I trust our official media and even more on our left media. Regarding the right of media linked to Western interests, these I do not trust absolutely.

    Brazil Gov't will have to rescue PBR. Its just a matter of time.
    Unfortunately Brazil Gov't bonds are one tick away from junk status.
    So they don't have the wherewithal to rescue a kitten much less their largest company.
    As $ flows out of “emerging mkts” and the EU into the USA it will tip Brazil into depression.
    and then the civil unrest will go from the slums to the middle class parts

    I told you all this would happen 2 yrs ago...

    5. I do not care about the investment grade. I think that if Brazil really want to be sovereign can not be depending on Western values. Brazil has to walk on your own, do your homework and seek alliances and partnerships with countries that have the same affinities as the BRICS.

    Depend on the West for anything is the same as staying colony. Or have offended our dignity as often seen in this site.

    Now I need to go to work.

    The reason you don't care about “investment grade” is because you don't understand how money works.

    BTW does the Brazilian Gov't sponsor your job because your mentally retarded?

    Whale oil beef hooked! (Said if you could in your best Irish imitation). Someone has been in a bar fight and many sock puppets now lie face down in their own vomit of too many cookies and blood. Some highly selective terminal virus has infected the hand manipulating from their arses. @36
