Brazilian Army: Chavez a “Destabilizing Element”


A story published by Claudio Dantas Sequeira in Correio Brazilense states that recent military situational papers brand Hugo Chavez as an “element destabilizing the continent”. The papers allegedly describe Bolivia as a “satellite of Venezuela” and consider “peace in South America” as “uncertain”. A fragment of Dantas’s story translated by the BBC Monitoring Services follows:

“According to them [Alleged military reports], Bolivia's decision to
nationalize its gas reserves by force - without Brazil outlining any action - is encouraging the Paraguayans to ask for a revision of the energy prices set in the Treaty of Itaipu”... “Chile is reportedly also shocked by Chavez's influence over Bolivia and Peru and has held consultations with the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance (NATO), of which it is an associate.”

They are only grownups playing games of war. Poor things. The Brazilian army has nothing better to do. They are so hurt. Guess what, Bolivia and Venezuela are not afraid of the Brazilian army.

That story sounds like nonsense to me. Sure, elites everywhere are freaked out by Chavez, but most regional governments aren't.
