Uhhh, pardon me, but we have TAKEN the native American's land.
That article says:
The whole issue was this:
In other worlds, Cisco sold China routers with a typical tool normally used to fight viruses and denial-of-service attacks. Cisco may or may not have realized that China would use this typical tool to block their citizens from reading stuff they didn't want them to read.
China forces abortion, sterilization, and contraception on its citizens. The prohibit citizens from flag burning. They practice select breeding to produce atheletes. People just disappear and are never heard from again.
We have lost some individual liberty here, but the Chinese have none to lose.
Yep. But China isn't offering Buddhists a reservation. I totally think we did wrong by the native Americans, but the world would be a much different place had we not. The US is FAR from perfect, no doubt.
Hey Red ,that is called Manifest Destiny.
Also ,General Custer told the Indians that they were "a militarily defeated people"This was ,of course,Before Custer himself became "a dead , militarily defeated general" at the Battle of the Little Big Horn.

Yes, and they took it from each other before the white man got here.
Sounds better than "Great Indian Land Grab" doesn't it! Sounds better than "Conquer Mexico, sack their capital and force them to give up California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico". Yes I took American History, too, and they didn't always put things in a fair light.
We were taught that America had never lost a war. In the War of 1812, our ports were blockaded for the entire war, we lost most of the battles, and our capital was sacked and burned . . . but we didn't LOSE it, you understand.
But Daniel Day Lewis lived and got the girl!
