BRASIL / PERU: Rousseff Bulks Up Amazon Border Troops...To Fight Narcos.


      Brasil shares 10,400 miles of borders with 3 major drug producing nations...Colombia, Peru and Bolivia...as well as a major smuggling center...Paraguay.
     So...President Rousseff has ordered in more than 10,000 troops and even drones to help stop narcos from importing cocaine and other drugs...especially at Amazon hot spots.
     Sometimes...those troops cross borders pursuing the narcos...alarming many who already fear Brasil's emergence as a regional power.
