The supreme irony of the military's call to arms against the "internationalization" of Amazônia and the devastation that large-scale development would do to the
region was perhaps best expressed by Tuca Angerami, a deputy in the Brazilian Congress,
who noted that "the object of this polemic is to sensitize Congress to the necessity of
reequipping the Armed Forces. Amazônia has already been internationalized for a long
time, and this denationalization occurred precisely in the time of the military dictatorship." Istoé/Senhor, 16 October 1991, p. 23.
