But we have the gratest homicide numbers of the world. Grater than numbers of wars.
In Syria, in 4 years, 256 thousand people died. In Brazil, almost 279 thousand, by violence.

PS: The numbers previously informed are just the official ones. Militias not included.

You have just proven my point. You can't even keep law and order in your own streets yet think your military is superior to Australias?

I don't think the military is responsible for that but the police.

Well your military won't be any good if your civil forces are not.

Not only in military, but in all indicators.
Funny is to see all the same people ignore all data just to raise their favorite country.

I do love Australia, but any kid knows that it's a very small country in population. Brazil is a lot more rich an diversified, no comparisson. For the working class it's obviously less advantageous to work in Brazil than in a high income country, but with you talk about the contry it's ridiculous to compare Australia to Brazil.

Only in Greater São Paulo we have an whole Australia.

Level of income is not the same of power.
Per capita income is much higher in Slovenia than in Russia. Which of them is more powerful?

Again, not the same.
I could write an entire book for listing all the causes of violence in Brazil, but lack of military power it is not. For now, what I can state is that the brazilian law favours the crime.

There are only two countries that can claim to be global powers; all others are regional players, or at best globally relevant in maybe one or two industries.

Indonesia is capable of overtaking Australia and Brazil!

Top 5 countries in the Southern Hemisphere by each measure:
Area : Brazil > Australia > Argentina > The D.R. of the Congo > Indonesia
Population : Indonesia > Brazil > The D.R. of the Congo > South Africa > Tanzania
GDP (nominal) : Brazil > Australia > Indonesia > Argentina > South Africa
GDP (PPP) : Indonesia > Brazil > Australia > Argentina > South Africa
National wealth : Australia > Brazil > Indonesia > New Zealand
