The riots that took place on Sunday (8) fit the project that President Lula (Workers’ Party) cherishes: to favor an atmosphere of radical reform in the armed forces, according to the Venezuelan model of former dictator Hugo Chavez. Parliamentarians with access to the core of power operate with the information that the PT’s intention is to take control of military means, free them from the influence of former President Jair Bolsonaro and put the barracks at the service of the government that took power in the first place.
With the reform, Venezuela removed military leaders and interrupted a series of coups. After that he upgraded the “equipment” of the barracks.
Dictator Chavez was arrested after leading an attempted military coup, but he learned how to do it and, after the second coup, only left power dead.
Lula stated a few days ago that the armed forces are not “a moderate force as you think”. Nobody in the army said that.
Conservative constitutionalists such as Yves Gandra Martins subscribe to the view that the constitution provides that the armed forces are a “moderating force”.
