There is no chance of a direct invasion for oil like Operation Iraqi "Freedom," so Brazil needs to keep an eye on the foreign funded vocal minority protests, who lose elections and then cry. This is just like Moldova. Every time the pro-EU or pro-NATO parties lose, they start violence and riots.
Brazil in Africa
Overall, Brazil should rightfully lead South America and be the interface of South America to the rest of the world.
I am glad Brazil is taking steps to claim its rightful position in the world.
Among our sea's wealths the most worth is 'pre-sal' oilfields. But due to the high costs of exploration, 'pre-sal' is economically feasible only with high oil barrel's prices.
Fishery has not a great expectations, since the sea currents that running along Brazilian coastal are hot waters and poor feedings to attract some big shoals. Furthermore Brazilian people dont have the habit of to eat fish. Even in coastal cities, people prefers to eat meat and barbecue than fish and seafood.

Its no secret that so far countries like Brazil, India, South Africa, have been too timid to exert influence relative to their size. Hopefully that will change soon.
