Brazilian president: Obama promised he would ‘just pick up the phone and call me’ for non-public info.
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and US President Barack Obama met at the White House, promising each other an end to the frosty relations between the two countries. Rousseff was one of the most vocal critics of American spying after NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed she and other world leaders were targets. Never mind NSA scandal – the two presidents promise to trust each other going forward.
And now, I’ll reveal what’s really going on!
US and Obama:
US is engaged in a complex hybrid war against Russia, China and EU and it doesn’t have any more capability to fight on yet another front. That’s why US tries to make up with former enemies, such as Cuba and Iran. This is one of the main reasons they are also doing damage control with Brazil.
2016 US elections:
On another hand, Obama is attempting to ensure a fighting chance for a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2016 elections after the disastrous foreign policy of the Obama administration opened doors of all kinds for other parties, from Republican to alternative, such as Green and Libertarian parties.
New French NSA spying scandal:
All these overtures towards Brazil are damage control, pure and simple, especially in view of the new French spying NSA scandal that is threatening to explode, potentially taking with it any Democratic presidential nominee’s chances. US now employs all its available leverage with France and Europeans to hush-up and sweep the scandal, which revealed that NSA spied on 3 French presidents, numerous politicians and business leaders, under the rug.
Through the public demo of how lovey-dovey the Brazil-US relations really are, Obama is merely attempting to send a message to the world that US isn’t as bad, that it has reformed, so please, close your eyes to reality and forget we spied on you, your political and business leaders, as well as your grandma.
US wants to tear Brazil from the BRICS and S. America
Just like in the case of the rift between EU and Russia, US is still playing the same game. If they are able to distance Brazil from the rest of the BRICS, and possibly, from the rest of South America – even temporarily – they’ll consider it a victory. They have so few victories lately that they’ll settle for anything.
In 2014 Obama attempted to put a wedge between China and Russia on one hand and India on another, by trying to convince India to leave the BRICS. That didn’t result in anything. Read more in:
Brazil is the next target.
But then the question becomes why Brazil is suddenly so gullible and trusting? What’s in it for them?
I’ll reveal the real reason for Brazil’s behavior. I have been observing Brazil for some time and it has been clear to me that for the past 10 months or so Brazil has been extremely quiet internationally. Just last summer and prior to that, Rousseff was very active in the BRICS and outspoken about NSA spying – and suddenly silence.
Why such change in the past 9-10 months? There were several attempts of color revolution in Brazil in this period. While Rousseff was re-elected president, she had to endure an unusually difficult election. All this is happening with the backdrop of the very expensive and financially straining Olympic Games Brazil will host in August 2016.
I have written in the past how Olympic Games are often used as a pretext to seriously destabilize the situation in the world and/or the host country. Beijing Olympics opening ceremony was used as a cover to begin the war in S. Ossetia/Georgia; 2014 Sochi Olympics were marred with Kiev maidan and illegal overthrow of the elected Ukraine president. Moscow Olympics of 1980 were undermined with direct boycott, on top of Afghanistan. Even the relatively minor mini-olympic event that just took place in Baku, Azerbaijan – the First European Olympic Games – was marred with all EU leaders boycotting the games and the attempted Yerevan, Armenia, ‘electric’ maidan. Armenia is the closest neighbor of Azerbaijan, with which it is at odds.
Note that all the Olympic Games I mentioned took place in NON-WESTERN countries. In the run-up to all these games, each host country also endured a lot of humiliating and offensive Western MSM attacks and slander, calls for boycott, etc. Recently, the president of Azerbaijan Aliyev complained of the same: Putin and Erdogan Troll EU at Baku’s First European Games.
Here is what is happening behind the scenes in Brazil. There are ‘spontaneous’ protests against the 2016 Olympic Games and the construction of various Olympic projects. In between these, there are also frequent protests against various transportation fee hikes, utility fees hikes, etc. It has proved to be impossible to start an outright maidan in Brazil, of the kind they were able to organize in Kiev.
Brazil is surrounded by countries which don’t view US interference favorably. Ukraine’s surroundings are Poland, Romania, Moldova, Germany, Lithuania, Georgia – all of whom were itching to see a regime change in Kiev. Therefore, Brazil wouldn’t get an avalanche of foreign interference on par with what happened in Ukraine.
CIA and US-financed NGOs can only go so far in organizing a color revolution. However, they can destabilize and weaken the country, damage president’s reputation, and completely ruin the first ever Olympics in South America, which are the pride of Brazil.
Sure, there are lots of problems in Brazil – every country has them. Does US not have plenty of problems? But no other country interferes in the sovereign affairs of the US, while US has the audacity to interfere in the affairs of ALL countries on the planet.
Consequently, Brazil had to ‘submit’ to the US and play a passive, meek role in exchange for the US leaving them alone till after the Olympics. Brazil got its message from all those other Olympics that were soured by the US and the West. They don’t want any problems. In exchange for playing ball, US would promise to leave their Olympics alone.
However, this doesn’t mean at all that Brazil is changing its BRICS orientation. Call it a temporary political compromise, to be reconsidered after August 2016.
Expect Brazil to be temporarily pro-US and super-quiet internationally until at least September 2016. Obama/Democrats need to try to get through elections without additional scandals. This may be a mutually convenient truce. But frankly, I wouldn’t trust US too much.
After the 2016 US elections – by 2017-2018 – we will start seeing a changed global geopolitical landscape. Get ready!
