Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
However, there was a time when a Revolution in Brazil would have been quite a bit more feasible if it hadn't been for the efforts of the US to ensure that political events took a different turn.

And as the US Empire fractures then falls, there won't be a US standing as a nearby hegemon exercising that influence.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
