    Brazil has basically shot themselves in the head

    Like politicians everywhere (see Obama, current EPA), they don't care. It's not about the long-term or the country's welfare, it's about their position and power and influence. If they can order the stoppage of drillling and production and shake down Chev and RIG for millions or billions, they can grandstand to the electorate what a great job they've done against the big greedy Yankee oil companies. Isn't their current president some former Marxist guerilla?
