The current impasse in Brazilian politics, i.e. the suspension and pending impeachment of the democratically elected President, Dilma Rousseff, is symptomatic of the widely acknowledged aim of the US Empires multinational corporations and organisations in seeking global economic hegemony via the application of neoliberal and internationalist policies aimed at liberalising the economies of independent nation states. It is no secret that successive regimes in the US, dating back to the mid 1990's, have been embarked on a plan to subvert the worlds' economies in the form of the universally abhorred and reviled Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP - circa 1995), the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP - 2005) and the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA - 2012).
That Brazil, akin to China, India, Russia and South Africa (aka. BRICS), is not party to the pecuniary theft of both personal and public property, and the debt slavery about to be created by the imposition of the US Empires neoliberal policies, is the primary reason that it is, as are all of the other BRICS nations to differing degrees, an economic and military target of the US regime.
