    ”...the Generals managed to knock some good sense into (Bolsonaro) head.”

    No they did not. Not one can knock anything into this guy's head -- especially good sense.

    The generals twisted his arm and he relented for his own survival as president. Tantrum-prone Bolsonaro's leadership, however, won't be the same after such a fiasco.

    Figure of speech Reekie.

    Whether they twisted his arm - which I'd say was accurate - or not, is beside the point. The end result is what matters.

    His survival as President depends on no one but himself.....and all this talk about 'impeachment' is just a smoke screen created by the left...they know damned well that unless he commits an impeachable offense, nothing doing.....but don't worry, they are doing their best to stay in the spotlight...although they are fading away...

    I know you think the left is the solution to all evils, and I won't try to convince you of the contrary, after all you live in a Canadian-style socialism.......very, very different to what our leftist politicians have in mind for, until you've lived in Brazil for as long as I have, may I respectfully suggest you stop putting your foot in your mouth.
