Boy, things are getting really fun now. The army, the navy, the cops and the elite cops (BOPE) all working together to take over the favelas. Never before has this country seen such a great operation to make things safer.

it's brazil, great if you're rich, terrible if you're poor. Along with Russia, India and China, it's one of the most likely future candidates for being an economic superpower, but like the latter 2, there's a massive divide between the rich and poor.
