What do you want from the news?
Lindsay, i suggest you take a look on the Taste Series Conversations on TED. I've been engaged on one about Iran and it was very interesting. And we are really doomed by west's journalistic view (and it's sooo hard for us to go searching for enlightenment on different countries news.

There are no such things as puppets States. US supports Israel only if it sees that supporting Israel is better fo US, this is valid for UN, Israel or any other country, international organization, NGO's, and so on. Yes, i agree with you that US makes sanctions on Iran on economic, business and trade not because of nuclear weapons, but because it's interesting for Israel and they support Israel. But this is purely POLITICAL MOTIVATION. Brazil has no interest on Israel or Iran, or Middle East in general. There is no reason for Brazil meddling with this, no one -except for the ideological view. Aligning with Iran was a STRATEGIC error, not ideological error (if that exists) or in terms of amity or enmity. For Brazil, doing business with Iran is just business and trade. For US, Israel, UN, it's not just business, for sure, it's politics. And sorry, i don't want to opposite to your beliefs, but Iran and Israel are not the two main poles of the world, there is no main pole in the world, it's a web of interests.

How should we preserve global relevant resources?
That's quite a nice "new" (for me, it's hard to get an account from far) vision of U. States. Religion is always so complicated, almost everywhere. My country's constitution says we have no official religion and the first phrase of the same constitution is: we promulgate, under protection of GOD, the following constitution. Brazil is the largest catholic country in the world, but recently there is a huge movement towards evangelism, that has major influence on politics. We have juridically accepted gay marriage, but the evangelics "prohibited" the distribution of educational material about homophobia on schools, because it's against their faith. Our president accepted this. We aren't a secular State, definitely. The great problem of this here in Brazil, and I imagine that this is an issue on States too, is this people elects candidates ALWAYS. Any candidate that has evangelic support (except for presidential elections) wins. And this makes all candidates constrained about what they say. About international exploitation i agree with you, but almost every country does this. Brazil does some exploitations too, here at South America. This has some theoretical explications, but i rather don't start this here, cause it's extensive and can make this conversation boring.

Hi Linda, like I said before, these things are said by some alienated persons, that believe on stupid jokes. Like this one, on Simpson, which i find very disrespectful, although i love the series: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCfdOVhkdwQ If the person is alienated, and sees something like this, he will have only one view of people on Brazil: monkeys, jungle, and so on. About the aligators, it's funny because in fact here where i live there are crocodiles (small ones tho) and i see them everyday. This is not common on Rio or Brazil tho. But i never associated Florida to alligators hehe. Regards from Rio!

Thank you very much for your views S.R Ahmadi, it's important to listen do different opinions. About Brazil doing business with Iran, i agree and Iran has a huge food market that would be great for Brazil answer this demand (food production is Brazil's driving economic force on international market). But doing business is doing business. I'm not doing a moral critic on Iran, but on strategic thinking, aligning with Iran was an error, based on a unrealistic view that aligning with isolated countries can make Brazil be a leader of the interest of these countries. USA wrote down an sanction against Iran, and Brazil was forced to sign. This was PATHETIC, an awful error of diplomacy.

It's not bad in essence, but it creates a stereotype that every brazilian is happy or likes to party very much which it isn't true. Brazil is a huge melting pot but the typical image that is shown outside is of a small portion of the people, that lives by the beach on Rio de Janeiro (i'm included on this, i like being like this), but extending this to all brazilians is kinda messy. Sometimes it creates problems -which is minor and sometimes funny- with celebrities too, that come here thinking that they can do anything (this is just an example, but Nick Oliveri of Queen of Stone Age got naked on the stage cause he thought Brazil was the country of carnival, all get naked, and this is not true).

The message he was trying to pass is that there are two measures for similar issues. When it comes about Amazonia, the argument is that it should be possession of the world, when the issue is about nuclear weapons or oil resources (which can have a greater impact on environment) the response different, this shouldn't be internationalized. The point is, if Amazonia should, why these others issues shouldn't? If nuclear weapons aren't to be internationalized, never should Amazonia be too. You touched the point of education (which is very interesting as Cristovam is one of the great advocates of Education on Brazil, and will probably occupy a seat at UNESCO one day). I think that for all problems on the world there should have and education arm, changing the way people think about the matter. This is the solution for environment, at Brazil and the world. We should protect the rainforest, that is for sure too, and education is vital for this.
