I'm British by birth and having grown up in the United States (American). I live in Washington DC and work for the Pentagon. I was in Atlanta Sept. 11 having left Washington on September 10. I have to respond to the article written by Dione Rocha. I have visited Brasil many times and I know from experience that the United States is the country that Brasilians look up to the most. I also have an Brasilian girlfriend living in Rio. In additon, I have many Brasilian friends living in Brasil and in south Florida. I was disappointed by Ms. Rocha's response to the murder of thousands of Americans and other nationalities. We must remember that there were hunderds of people from Latin American countries working in the WTC buildings.

In defense of Brasil I would like to say I was overwhelmed by the responses I received from my Brasilian friends. Many, many people took the time to write letters of sorrow to me. All the Brasilians I talked to express real sorrow for the people of the United States as a result of the attack of September 11.

Diog,

I don't think one need exclude the other. As an antidote to the besteira of Dione Rocha, it is important to remind her and the other mal criados that seem to gloat about this that people from eighty countries were killed in the WTC. This was more than an attack against the US.

Randy,

I think the appeal to Dione Rocha or anybody else ought to stand or fall on the basis of whether there are dead people, not whether the pile of corpses has been made more valuable by the admixture of Latin Americans. I already know where thatíll get us with the Dione Rochas. Itís this fellow Iím worried about now.

We might as well face up to the fact that there are short sighted, ugly-minded people in the world like Miss Rocha, to whom the horrors of Sept. 11 are an occasion not to express sympathy, but to grind more salt into our wounds by her ugly gloating and confused arguments.

There is nothing we can do about these people. All I can say is I hope they never live through a similar experience.

The real ugliness here is Brazzil.com's willingness to publish this nonsense. Brazzil.com seems to be published by a fellow named Rodney Mello, and I for one would like to hear an explanation directly from him as to how he came to the conclusion that it was ok to publish such deeply offensive trash.

Brazzil.com claims to be a "respected" publication, to be found in consulates, etc. Perhaps we should start a campaign to have it removed from any official offices. Write to the consulates, write to your congressman, write to whoever you can think of that might help remove this garbage from our midst.

And finally, send emails to brazzil@brazzil.com and let them know how you feel.
