Funny, I was just discussing Lula's witless decision to support a non-existent state (Palestine) yesterday with a Brazilian friend. We recalled that he broke protocol in Israel (upon his visit there) and concluded that he never chooses adequate international political partners. Why? Because PT (Partido Trabalhador - his party) people are not much educated (and I am being nice here) - unfortunately, the party reflects the poor educational level of the nation. Despite all the ignorance, Lula managed not to destroy the good work of his predecessor (Fernando Henrique Cardoso). Dilma...well, poor soul...I wish her well.
