My response to the “Workers’ Cause Party’s” (PCO) attack will begin by summarizing its hit piece, after which I’ll then hyperlink to all my analyses of Lula that I’ve published since November so that the reader can review my work themselves in order to see that this party is manipulating their perceptions about it. The next part will then consist of debunking their ad hominem attack against me before doing the same regarding their political points, after which I’ll share my thoughts about why this hit piece was published.
Lula, The greatest ever! Lula, we love you, Pátria Grande loves you! Our salvation and Hope!
Ever stop to think that the current version of Putin was never a version Lula or Dilma would have supported in their prior administrations? If people were not so eager to perpetuate some wildly distorted definition of communism and apply all conditions without regard to serious changes in political behavior or ambition, hen we would not be where we are. Lula was right. This Putin is not the Putin of BRICS, but a dangerously radicalized figure, who either changed or carefully hid his personal agenda for years.
Excellent rebuttal. Keep up your insightful reports.
The President Lula base of supporters it seems to be full of globalists infiltrators to the core. This approach with the USA is likely to costs to our democracy a very high price that nobody in here can imagine.
For those who are not familiar with politics in Latin America, it is convenient to point out that Lula -like the cases of presidents Amlo in Mexico, Alberto Fernández in Argentina, Gabriel Boric in Chile and Gustavo Petro in Colombia- face a difficult situation, since while they support a new multipolar order, they are still under pressure from Western imperialism and its local allies.
In the case of Lula's radical left allies, it would be interesting to analyze whether they have carried out an honest and in-depth self-criticism about the mistakes of his past governments, as was the corruption scandal ("Mensalão") in Congress, or the support for the bloody invasion of Haiti led by the US and Canada.
Having said this, however, it must be understood that for the Brazilian masses a PT reformist government will always be preferable to the Evangelical far right represented by Bolsonaro, who despite his presumed nationalist credentials, actually maintained an alliance with sectors of big US capital interested in deepening the exploitation of the Amazon.
As for his peace initiative for Ukraine, Lula seeks with it to demonstrate to his electorate and the world that Brazil can be a regional power with global influence, in the same way that he also tried to mediate in the nuclear program of Iran and Amlo in Mexico made his own proposal to achieve peace between Russia and Ukraine. These are superficial actions, without real weight, which are very soon contradicted by the facts, either with statements like Amlo's ("Mexico is against all invasions") or Lula's during his recent visit to the US.
We must consider that the Putin of 2023 is not the same Putin of the prior Lula/Dilma years. Any intelligent political leader must always be prepared to analyze his or her alliances for alarming changes on positions among them. Lula was not wrong to condemn the present Putin/Russia mentality.
