Brazil and Neighbors at Triple Frontier Mad at Oscar-Winning Bigelow Latest Movie

Kathryn Bigelow Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, they are all angry with Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow’s latest project, revealed Argentine Secretary of Tourism Enrique Meyer. Bigelow’s movie focuses on the border region shared by the three countries and thought to be a center for smuggling and terror financing.

Bigelow, whose movie The Hurt Locker won multiple Oscars this year, including best picture, wants to examine the area where Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil meet, in a film tentatively titled Triple Frontier, but which the three tourism ministers fear could seriously damage their countries reputation with foreign visitors.

Last week, Paraguayan Tourism Minister Liz Cramer called not to cooperate with Bigelow’s project. “She has no idea of the bad reputation and damage she could cause with such a movie. I’ve talked about this with Argentine minister Meyer and Brazilian officials,” said Cramer.

“We discussed the subject with Paraguay’s Tourism Minister and the Governor of Misiones (an Argentine border state),” said Argentine Tourism Minister Enrique Meyer and “we all agreed that we were deeply angered when we discovered that this project seeks to negatively portray this region shared by three South American countries.”

The Triple Frontier includes the cities of Foz de Iguaçu (Brazil), Ciudad del Este (Paraguay) and Puerto Iguazú (Argentina), an area described by regional and international law enforcement departments as one of the continent’s main crime and narcotics center.

United States intelligence services are convinced that among the numerous Arabs living in the area (estimated in 20.000) there are members with links to terrorist organizations, a claim denied by Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.

    Tripla Fronteira
    I do not believe they accepted the script of this film. For those who do not know, after the attacks of September 2011, the U.S., with the excuse that there were terrorists at the border of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil have sent their troops to Paraguay. There have been several investigations for several years and no indication of terrorism was found. But the troops remain there. Soon do exactly what they did with the Arab countries, with the excuse that there were weapons of mass destruction, invaded the country, killed several innocent people and steal oil. The weapons of mass destruction were never found (because there is no weapon). We are threatened, and there are people who think the best damn record this movie in our natural heritage. The Iguaçu is the largest freshwater reserve in the world, so the U.S. to save the movie, send troops. They want to present ourselves to the world as people unable to take care of their own heritage, villains. While the Americans unleashed (with a huge U.S. flag), will be the heroes of history. Brazil opens the eye, they are wanting our wealth.

    We do not need help from Americans to take care of our heritage. For, they are the greatest terrorist in the world and biggest polluters.

    Everyone talks about the sadness of the assassination attempt by the U.S. in 2001. Nobody talks about the years (many years) of suffering that has caused the U.S. to Arab countries. Surely more people died in war than in the attack.

    Today, they speak of the Arab people as if they were all bandits, there are people who work honestly, regardless of race and color. As in the U.S. there is also plenty of people who do not pay. The triple border there are people of Arab descent but, honestly working from sunrise to sunset.

    “We discussed the subject with Paraguay’s Tourism Minister and the Governor of Misiones (an Argentine border state),” said Argentine Tourism Minister Enrique Meyer and “we all agreed that we were deeply angered when we discovered that this project seeks to negatively portray this region shared by three South American countries.”

    Translation: “SHIT! We can’t afford for people outside of Latin America to know the truth! Where will stupid Brazilians buy their cheap foreign shit and pirate DVDs, and how will we line our own pockets?”

    You bunch of fucking little 3rd world monkey Brazilians. You talk the talk but when the truth comes out your little faggot balls shrink quick. Macho little cockroach toilet cleaners.
