9. It's not "my theory".

 

US intended to establish several bases in Colombia. That is threat enough. The fact they couldn't is a secondary issue.

Do you really believe that, after seeing what happened to Iraq, there is one single oil producer country in this world not worried about US energetic, strategic and military policies as a potential threat? Excluding the Western allies, of course.

Brazil is a traditional ally of Washington and even though it's currently pursuing an independent foreign policy, both countries continue to have good relations. Well, Brazil is currently building three nuclear submarines and intends to buy some hundreds of jets. The official explanation given to the military spending is protecting its oil reserves. Protecting from who? Could you guess?

Now, if Brazil was a targget of media war propaganda, being "satanized" by the American press... believe me, it would be building nuclear bombs right now.
