Mensagem:  Hello People Pat said: "Well, that is an interesting continuation. The colonies of Spain and Portugal are almost entirely in warm climates. Brazil seems to be a very non-aggressive country, although I'm not sure the same can be said of the other South American countries- still, they don't seem to show much imperialistic tendency." That's a true, nowadays, but other countries here in South America look at us with imeperialistic tendency, as many people think about the U.S., the reasons: When our "independence" was declared (The son of the Portuguese king declared independence, no war or fight for freedom, as the US and the other Spanish colonies, I have a theory that they declared our independece just to return Brazil to Portugal's domain because a few years after the indepence the prince D. Pedro I had to return to assume the throne in Portugal...)We invaded Constantinopla (Uruguay) and if Uruguay, as an independent country exists, it's because England's interference, cause we had lost a war against Argentina because of this land. After until 1903 we had lots of disputs and reclamations toward lands, so Paraguay,Argentina, Peru, Bolivia lose some part of their territory to us, the State of Acre belonged to Bolivia, put after invasion and a deal, it became part of Brazil (the deal to build a railway which we say in Portuguese "ligou nada a lugar nenhum" it means : A useless railway. The War on Paraguay (Guerra do Paraguai) it was becoming a very rich and powerful country, but it didn't a harbour, so to sell its products it had to pass through Brazil, and it took place a political instabilisation which culminated in war (Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay against Paraguay) it took 6 year to relative small country to be subjugated and costs the life of almost all adult male of Paraguay, in the end and at the end of war, children in the Paraguayan side was fighting because there weren't adult to stand. As you can see it was past, but somehow there is some agressive temper in here. José Roberto
