Skip to comments.China Panics over Bolsonaro: ‘Unthinkable’ for Brazil to Align with U.S. and Taiwan

Chinas state-run Global Times panicked over the election of Jair Bolsonaro as president of Brazil, penning a Monday editorial sternly lecturing the new Brazilian leader that shifting trade away from China to the United States would be unthinkable...On the other hand, Reuters found Chinese officials and senior executives eyeing Bolsonaro with varying degrees of concern, particularly when he talks about tightening Brasilias grip on the supremely valuable niobium industry. Bolsonaro has been critical of Chinas efforts to dominate Brazilian mines, but might be obliged to mute his criticism because China has become such an important customer for Brazilian iron and agricultural products.

“The temperature stability of niobium-containing superalloys is important for its use in jet and rocket engines.
Niobium is used in various superconducting materials. These superconducting alloys, also containing titanium and tin, are widely used in the superconducting magnets of MRI scanners. Other applications of niobium include welding, nuclear industries, electronics, optics,...”
Screw the chicoms.
“unthinkable”..... LOL, commies are such bleeping mindless bullies. A sovereign nation like Brazil is just not allowed to adopt any policy the Chicoms don’t approve of, is that it?
World War III is closer than most people realize.
China will not allow it's wealth and power to diminish.
China is getting ready for war.
I guess China wants a war with Brazil now? I think not.
They don’t want their growth and wealth diminished, but they like to threaten. In a real war they risk losing everything.
So what will China do when Brazil invades Venezuela tiptop refuge flow?
Meanwhile, speaking of the ChiComs, anyone seen the head of Interpol lately...?
LOL! Your girl didn’t win, ChiComs! You chose poorly.
[singing] those BRICS just keep gettin' harder to find...
China has created and is funding the caravan.
Soybeans? Hmmm, seems to me it’s Brazil that has China over a barrel.
“... the Chinese Agriculture Ministry said one of the world’s major soybean producers Brazil could substitute the US as China’s main supplier of the strategically important crop.”
Good...get China out of Brazil.
Awe, the commies see their foothold in South America - where they had hoped to open up military bases - suddenly evaporate. Powuh wittle Marxist gooks.
In a real war with China, the United States would annihilate these commie gooks, using strategic, sub-launched nuclear missiles. The Chicom government and military would be radioactive ash in less than 30 minutes. Then we probably launch a few land based nukes, just to bounce the rubble a few times.
I hate commies - and I especially despise the damn Chinese variety. Have not yet met a Chinese national who was not a totally unethical, immoral a-hole.
