    How wonderful G7 has a topic on which almost everyone can agree on. Everyone except Trump that is. Not only can they be happy agreeing but they can complain about a non member without any fear of retaliation. They know that their concrete actions will have no effect except give their countries a warm fuzzy feeling about their leaders. This warm fuzzy feeling will have an influence in returning them to power. Without them actually having to do anything.

    I really hoped that some action would be taken against the Brazilian people. We need to encourage our industrial production and nothing better than the imposition of economic sanctions by the EU to make it happen.

    The only beneficiaries of this Mercosur / EU free trade agreement are the European industrialists themselves, no one else. Therefore, I am strongly opposed to the agreement being ratified by the Brazilian parliament.

    Now the question of aggression against sovereignty is something very serious that needs a strong reaction from Brazil. We need to show the world that we have the technology needed to detonate atomic bombs anywhere on planet Earth as a deterrent to any onslaught by the colonial powers on our territory.

    Brasileiro, it is not necessary to go the atomic way. Brazilian sovereignity over the Amazonas is unquestionable.
