We're Americans, that's what we do. Might as well do it for good reasons. (sarcasm)

More to the point, who are the Brazilians? The Europeans who conquered it and want to burn it down, or the native (south) Americans who live in that forest and depend on it? I would humbly suggest maybe the people who have lived there 10,000 years ought to have a bigger say than the European colonist government.
