Abstract : On the eve of the January 1, 2011, inauguration of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, the State Department noted that the United States is committed to deepening our relationship on a wide range of bilateral, regional and global issues with Brazil s government and people. President Rousseff herself declared shortly thereafter, We will preserve and deepen the relationship with the United States. During President Barack Obama s March 2011 visit to Brazil, both leaders cited the progress achieved on defense issues in 2010 and stated their commitment to follow up on the established dialogue in this area, primarily on new opportunities for cooperation. While these rhetorical commitments are important, will they lead to greater cooperation on defense issues and improve U.S.-Brazil ties?
