    “But some truckers espousing an armed intervention admitted they had little idea what that actually meant.

    “We were young during the last military government,” said Israel Bandeira, 40, another São Paulo truck driver. “But everyone says it was better, depending on the life that you lived. If you were an honest family man, you were fine.”

    Even one of the strike’s most public figures said he would not condemn calls for intervention.

    “I will not take a position, I don’t know if it would be good or bad for the country. Most people ask for military intervention because of corruption,” said Wallace Landim, 39, a trucker from Goiás state whose popular videos encouraging strikers have turned him into a spokesman for truckers and who addressed Congress on Tuesday. He said strikers were now demanding further cuts to diesel prices and also cheaper gasoline.”

    Others just in wrong place in war zone.
