Warplanes? That sounds a bit too melodramatic.
How about military aircraft or military transports?
Brazil is promised $22b in assistance to fight the fires by the G7 but complains that they are being treated as a colony. They cried out that they could not deal with the fires. They have demonstrated that they are incapable or unwilling to protect the Amazon. Maybe the region should be recolonised to protect it effectively.
but complains that they are being treated as a colony.
What the hell do they think they're treating the indigenous people as.
A pity Brazil does not have enough ships, submarines, tanks, missiles, etc. to combat wildfire [unable to combat crime either]!
But that's not a problem!
The USA is very likely to force Brazil to import arms. After all, for Turkey, the arms will be supplied by the Russians. also, a Big Arms Deal may not come through with Saudi Arabia. Not forgetting the Taliban & ISIS may be receiving lesser American Arms. So the massive amount of the American Arms need to be dumped somewhere & Brazil is the most likely candidate!
