"Clinton was trying to convince Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva to drop or postpone his controversial efforts to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran..."
They don't want a deal. Lula is right. The Americans and their Israeli buddies want war. That's all they want. In the end everybody will hate us but the Israelis, and with good reason. Don't worry though, I'm sure Israel will make everything good for us after we are trillions in debt for them, and our society, economy and military is in tatters. Don't worry, it's worth it I'm sure. Besides, the New York Times says that war is good, so they must be right.
Lula also isn't drinking the Clinton kool-aid about how it's all different now that Mr. Change is in office. Ha Ha. One point for Brazil, another country with a better future then the U.S.
Exclusive: Fight between U.S. and Brazil threatens trade
(Reuters) - The road to rock bottom for relations between Brazil and the United States, a dispute that now threatens business ties between the two Western Hemisphere economic giants, began in Brasilia in March.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was trying to convince Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva to drop or postpone his controversial efforts to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran, and support a new round of sanctions instead.
Lula refused. Then, he dropped a diplomatic bombshell, telling Clinton he was worried Iran would become another Iraq -- that is, that the United States was on a path to war, according to sources familiar with the exchange.
Clinton bristled, replying that Lula wasn't taking into account the fact that Barack Obama was now president, rather than George W. Bush, the sources said on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the talks.
The meeting ended badly...
