That is Brazil, USA, Russia, India and China military alliance. Look the members of NATO are well weak really other than the US and maybe the UK. Russia, China, India and Brazil are all emerging economic powers and all, except for Brazil, are major military powers. Why not join forces with these countries. I mean when you join a gang, does the one big guy go off and recruit midgets, or does the one big guy recruit other big guys for the gang? America should make an under the talk deal with Russia that America will stand by and not do a thing while you mess with the Balkans. In fact, even if you mess witht he Europeans, we will remain idle. Then to China we will say we will not care what you do in Tibet or with Tiawian (sp?), shit we do that right now, but if we make an under the table commitment we get another strong allie for the gang. With India, China, Russia and the US say they will support them public (if not militarily) against Pakistan. Then recruit Brazil as the sole powerhouse in all of Latin America! Leaving NATO today! They do nothing for us. Say the US got into a fight, would you rather has Russia, China, India and Brazil having your back or France (lol), UK (only semi-tough one), Germany (LOL, the Green Party take-over is almost complete), Canada (and all 12 of them), the Netherlands etc. Easy choice!
