Brazil on the brink of crisis - Defense Minister resigns, commanders are ready to follow his example

34

Brazilian Defense Minister Fernando Azevedo y Silva resigned without explanation this Monday.


The reasons for the resignation and who initiated it are unknown.

Army commanders, fleet и aviation are currently meeting in Brasilia to discuss joint resignations from their posts in response to the departure of the Minister of Defense. Edition O GLOBO сообщаетthat although the final decision has not yet been made by them, they are likely to leave their posts today.



The day before, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Minister of Justice and Public Security and 3 more ministers also resigned.

Ten days ago, in a conversation with his supporters outside the presidential palace, President Bolsonaro said that "chaos is coming" and promised some "tough measures" by the federal government. UOL Edition считаетthat "The next few hours may reveal what the president means by" tough action. "

Curiously, there was something like an attempted riot by the military police in Brazil yesterday, after one of the war-lined policemen "went into a state of psychological crisis" and opened fire in the air (and then at his colleagues), shouting incoherent about " inadmissibility of infringement of workers' rights ". He was shot dead by the BOPE unit, and an attempt to support him, made by individual police officers in different regions of the country, was thwarted.

    Let them return Lula da Silva, with him in Brazil it was somehow more fun. And then some kind of Bolsonaro is not very adequate.

        This is still a question, because in Brazil these Don Pedrov ... In short, women will be waist-high. Maybe Lula is a don too.

      Lula will probably be back soon. All false accusations have already been dropped from him and political rights have been returned.

        What about Dilma Rousseff? There, in my opinion, and her replacement Temar also sits. Three former presidents, who ruled one after the other, and everyone is sitting.

          And Bolsonaro is under investigation. And his children too. And two-thirds of the parliament is under investigation. In Brazil, the investigation is a tool for managing businessmen, officials and legislators, therefore, everyone is investigated. This is a police state. Temer has been released from prison so far and last week some of the charges (but not all) were dropped. Dilma was imprisoned only during the dictatorship and her impeachment was out of the blue - no abuses or violations were found; but the impeachment was not canceled (what's done is done). Therefore, it would be more correct to call impeachment a parliamentary coup. In the next elections, Lula and Bolsonaro will most likely fight.

            I have not studied this issue much, but it seems that in Brazil, presidents often have weak support in Congress. Probably, by voting for a presidential candidate, some Brazilians vote in elections to the chambers of the Congress for representatives of other parties. How else to explain the fact that the party of the president (whoever he may be) very often does not control the legislative branch. I read that, despite the fact that Brazil is a presidential republic with huge presidential powers, in practice, in order to gain support in Congress, presidents often include politicians from influential parliamentary factions in their government. It turns out in practice a de facto, informally presidential republic, but with elements of a parliamentary republic.

              Well, it looks like something like that, yes.
              In fact, all the strings are held in their hands by the federal police, which receive salaries from the United States. Here's a look:

          Blinken's statement was fine in essence, but firstly, these are just words, and secondly, he is not a decree to parliamentarians, since he does not represent the legislature.

        Don't underestimate the role of the army in Latin America. She is there, like the guarantor of the constitution (although it should not be so), and now the army is beheaded. Against the backdrop of a pandemic, anything can happen, given that the Minister of Defense was removed, according to rumors, for refusing to enforce a state of emergency.

      Such an option is quite possible, especially after recently the mattress puppets were defeated in Bolivia.

    The Brazilian Defense Minister resigned without giving any reason ... the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Minister of Justice and Public Security and 3 other ministers also resigned.
    In a country where there are "many, many monkeys" ("I am your aunt"), you can expect everything. The coup not only failed, but failed in the first minutes
    an attempt to support him, undertaken by individual police officers in different regions of the country, was suppressed
    Well, this is Latin America - failed today, took place tomorrow.

      Easy. A video is being published here that supporters of the murdered "national hero" who opposed harsh measures of social isolation have already equipped 100 buses to the capital to ask the president for help in the fight against the governor. The governor is Rui Costa, who was the first to demand a Russian vaccine and even concluded an agreement for the supply of Sputnik-V, but the Brazilian regulator is slowing down everything. https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=K0owcBe5dT0&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR1Q7wK7OIb5aaIK3uEP8IUTEShDQqeAvLBr7YUauvZyK6OEr3bCURb-pUE

        Brazil has a militarized police force of about 150 people.
        The Brazilian Special Forces are part of the army, air force, naval force and police force.
        http://sof-mag.ru/spec_arms/brazilij.html
        This is despite the fact that (according to Wikipedia) the number of the Brazilian Armed Forces is 366,5 thousand people!
        The only question that remains open is whether the people of Brazil will support the possible establishment of a dictatorship in the country. Latin Americans have suffered in their time from all sorts of different dictators ...

          The number of the military police is huge, especially when you include the reservists (plus a couple of hundred thousand more). This is a mixture of our patrol service and the National Guard (internal troops). It is unlikely that it will reach an open dictatorship, but 30 percent of the population will definitely approve of it. It is significant that the first order of the new Minister of Defense was today an order to celebrate the day of the establishment of the military dictatorship in 1964 (which lasted 20 years). The whole world, like progressive Brazilians, consider this to be the day of the beginning of the tragedy, and only Bolsonaro and the Minister of Defense consider this to be the day of the accomplishment of the democratic revolution, which did not allow the victory of the communists.

            I read the article on your link ... I'm not strong at all in Portuguese laughing , used google translator laughing ... I don't know to what extent he translated correctly ...
            Two things struck me in the article:
            1) Ao fim da Segunda Guerra Mundial, o mundo, contando com a significativa participação do Brasil, havia derrotado o nazi-fascismo. O mapa geopolítico internacional foi reconfigurado e novos vetores de força disputavam espaço e influência.
            It turns out that the Second World War was won when significant participation of Brazil. If not for Brazil, the Axis countries would have won wassat
            2) Like in this paragraph: As Forças Armadas acabaram assumindo a responsabilidade de pacificar o País, enfrentando os desgastes para reorganizá-lo e garantir as liberdades democráticas que hoje desfrutamos. said the Brazilian Armed Forces have taken responsibility appeasement country. That is, they call a military coup pacification ...

            Well, they have already demolished the monument to Che Guevara, the communists have already been accused of all mortal sins, even the communist is to blame for the fires in the Amazon jungle, he does not like BRICS. As a result, Brazil may get a new populist dictator with pretentious speeches about socio-economic problems for which it is to blame (guess who) ...

              There is practically nothing to add)
              Brazil's involvement in World War II was, but it is not clear that it can be called "significant". Much of the benefit of Brazil was not in the form of a small contingent in Italy, where Indians once captured a handful of Nazis with a battle cry, but in providing logistics. The fact is that it was the Brazilian ships sailing from Brazilian ports that supplied the allies in Africa and Europe with everything that Uncle Sam supplied. But do not forget that until August 1942 Brazil worked in the regime "both yours and ours," supplying raw materials, including to Hitler. But then Brazil took offense at Hitler for the fact that a German submarine sank one of their transports (with cargo for the Coalition) and decided to enter the war on the side of the Allies.
              Well, now in Brazil, Bolsonarism is flourishing, which is a Brazilian version of McCarthyism and everything can be expected, although Bolsonaro seems to have already lost support from all branches of government ...

              Replace the word “Stalin” in the lamentations of our “old Bolsheviks” with the term “military dictatorship” and you will get a typical discourse of modern Bolsonarists - “there was order under the dictatorship”, “there was an economic boom under the dictatorship”, “we were respected under the dictatorship”, “under the dictatorship there was no such crime "," thanks to the dictatorship we did not become a second Venezuela "and in general" it was not a dictatorship, but a democratic revolution. " And 40 percent of Brazilians think so, which, of course, is shocking.
              And it is also worth adding about the significant contribution of Brazil to World War II .... This World War II made a contribution (financial) to Brazil, since it was not "for the idea" that they provided transatlantic supplies to the allies.
              And another illustrative example - the father of the Brazilian Foreign Minister Ernest Araujo, who was dismissed the day before yesterday, was the same Attorney General who defended Sobibor's chief executioner Gustav Wagner and did not allow his extradition to Israel and Europe.
