Yeah? When is the last time the Christians exterminated a race?
The Sudan doesn't have the world's second largest proven oil reserves, so it must not be real to the Shrub.
Slaughter of Sudanese falling on deaf ears
May 9, 2004
Quote:And the U.N. has acted, in its own unique way. A few days ago it elected Sudan to another term on the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, just the kind of gross insult added to injury we have come to expect from that body.
Geeze! Isn't the US on that commission?
Quote:We should not ignore it. The international community has a shameful record in Africa. Half a million Rwandans were killed 10 years ago, and nothing was done. We missed that chance to do the human thing; now we are missing another chance. Africans are being murdered in Africa for being black. "They killed everything black,'' said another witness. "Guns or no guns, cattle or no cattle. This is the program: They don't want African tribes in this place." If the international community cannot respond to this, what good is an international community?
Funny, I asked myself that during my tour in Vietnam. Peaceful Montegnard tribes people caught up in the midst of that chaos. "Search and Destroy" missions were interpretted to mean, "Kill everthing[/b] that moves. Pigs, chickens, viet cong, villagers,everything![/b]" Now, the US is outraged over other countries doing the same thing?I don't get it.
Happened here in the US against the Native Americans. Still does but in differing ways, alcohol, polluted water and radiation. The term "redskin" was coined by good Old Abe Lincoln himself. it referred to an inch of "red skin" required to collect the $10 bounty on Dakota scalps that was imposed by Lincoln, after the Sioux Uprising in MN. It wasn't bad enough to order the public hanging of 38 Dakota men in Mankato, as reprisal to the revolt. Oh no! The Dakota's were chased into hiding in swamps along the Mississippi or into what is now South Dakota, their lands and belonging stolen by greedy, vengeful whites. Then Lincoln ordered bounties on Dakota scalps. When the Dakota scalp supply dwindled, some unscrupulous scalpers started killing whites with dark hair, thus the need for the "red skin". Amazingly, this bounty was imposed the year Old Abe signed the Emmancipation Proclamation.
Since I am not multi-lingual, I don't know what a guilder is.
I can guess.
Is a guilder a coin used in Germany? Is it a coin used by the government to give to the 10% who are out of work in the German Republic?
Or is a guilder a coin which no longer exists?
If so, I opt to give American Indians real money- American Dollars.

Walter it's nice of you to repond to this. Ive seen several of your postings and am impressed with them, as with many others here on A2K.
Walter, that's already been done. Unfortunately by those not "owning" the land. That was one of the land swindles of a multitude to cheat the native peoples out of our lands.
To our way of thinking, no one can own the land. It's a communal "ownership" by the Nation living there, a trust if you will. You lived where you wanted. Ownership was introduced by Europeans that brought such a strange concept to us, requiring precise boundaries and even fences. Deeds are like the treaties, written on paper fit only to light fires.
Every area of land belonged to everyone within the various nations. "boundaries" were nebulous and usually made by nature, such as mountains, rivers, etc. They were often disputed between neighboring nations during times of famine or drought, since they were usually good areas of water and food.
Many nations here in the US have tried to get reparations, but the US courts are usually reluctant or backed up with them. As a result they are very time consuming, costly and often dismissed for various reasons., but we still try.
