    The US Embassy has something to say?

    Set the shoot to kill! Because if you do not kill Lula, in 2018 the United States and all English-speaking countries can say goodbye to their embassies in Brasilia.

    It was shocking that the raid did not take place a long time ago!
    According to BBC:

    Oh no!

    We will have to close our embassy in Brazil?

    Then how will all the students and migrants to Australia get their visas?

    Poor Rousseff..... running out of people to hide behind!

    Imagine the questioning:

    Q) Well, Lula old chum, did you thieve any money from anybody?

    A) Of course not my friend, have this bag of dollars for your family: NOT for you of course!

    Well I think that clears it up, shall we watch a porn movie for a couple of hours just to make everybody think you are 'helping with our enquiries?

    As I said before; the stage has now crossed in Brazil where #1:some form of an emergency & #2:”Collorr-Style Theft [GOLPE] are inevitable!
    That's the reason, why many Brazilians are already:
    - buying gold,
    - buying foreign currency
    - transferring their hard-earned capital abroad
    - seeking jobs abroad
    - immigrating to other countries [including some of those in Latin America - including Venezuela!]

    Look, if someone wants to leave Brazil, all right. Pay exit taxes and bon voyage.

    Brazil is done by men, not for money.

    Before Brazil's economy sank, Brazilians were the third largest nationality of international students in Australia after China and India.

    Seems BRICS want an Australian degree and residency.

    Also Brazilians was one of the fastest growing nation for migrant was well.

    Lula's Workers' Party reacted angrily...with a hashtag reading “LulaPoliticalPrisoner.”

    These people DO realise which party is actually governing Brazil...don't they...?

    @18 LoBoMAU
    Pepe Escobar, the author of the aticle in the first link, is clearly a Lula / PT supporter.....he questions the Lava-Jato investigation as if it has been 'created' with the sole purpose of going after Lula. He prefers to ignore how the investigatioin started, and how the evidence lead to the LulaRat....whom, by now, anybody with half a brain knows he's up to his eyeballs in sh*t.

    Just to prove that the end is nigh for LULA and the BRICS:
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2016/03/06/downfall-of-brazils-lula-marks-end-of-brics-fantasy/

    ”The dream of a BRICS ascendancy has ended in sadness and squalor after the iconic figure of the era was seized by police at his home here, to the rapturous applause of Brazil’s stock exchange.

    Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, or “Lula” to the world, is sacrosanct no more. The once beloved president – and former Fiat car worker – who came to personify Brazil’s seeming rise to prosperity and global stature is under criminal investigation for his role in the ever-spreading Lava Jato (car wash) scandal.“

    I just love: ”to the rapturous applause of Brazil’s stock exchange.”

    Ha, ha, ha.

    The politicians after all are in power, NOT to improve the quality of life and the standard of living of those who elected them but only to make hay while the sun shines!
