BRIC leaders in 2008, Manmohan Singh (1932- ), Dmitri Medvedev (1965- ), Hu Jintao (1942- ), and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (1945- )… none of them support the American bullying of Iran… that’s why Lula can do this… he’s an honest broker… the Americans are not.
Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva appealed to the Iranian government to allow him to offer asylum to an Iranian woman sentenced to death for adultery. Sr da Silva appealed directly to his Iranian counterpart, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to allow this woman to take refuge in Brazil. “If my friendship with the president of Iran is worth anything, and if she is an embarrassment in Iran, we are ready to accept her amongst us and give her a home”, Sr da Silva said. The verdict, which, according to Islamic law, sentenced the woman to death by stoning, caused outrage throughout the world, the BBC reported.

LOVE that Lula! He’s a straightforward stand-up guy with no pretence or BS about him. He’ll probably succeed in freeing the woman, for he’s not threatening or lecturing the Iranians. Both the hard left and the hard right hate him… so he must be doing something RIGHT. He only had formal schooling up to the fourth grade and didn’t learn to read until he was ten. Compare him to Caribou Barbie… what a difference! One is an actual working guy who knows the score, who studied in the “school of hard knocks”… the other is a phoney who learned how to read a script and look good in photo ops. I know which one that I trust! What about you?
