Why did the Native Americans lose their lands so easily?

Postby Scepcop » 06 Aug 2009, 02:29

1. Weren't the Native Americans in America as long as the Europeans were in Europe? If so, shouldn't they have an equal or similar population? In movies they are always depicted as having fewer numbers than the whites. Why?

2. I heard that in real life, the guns of the 19th century were very inaccurate and worked only short range (contrary to what you see in the movies). If that's so, then how could it win over the Indian arrow? Shouldn't the wars have been equal?

3. Did most of the Indian population die from the diseases brought about by the white man? If they didn't die off, would they have won and kept their lands in the end?

4. How come the result of the Indian wars wasn't the same as in Vietnam, where the forest battles made it difficult for the US to win?

One word: Smallpox

See above word- Now think about how how wonderful these people were to the African American population. They didn't want their land, but they found a use for them too in their domination of the world.

4. How come the result of the Indian wars wasn't the same as in Vietnam, where the forest battles made it difficult for the US to win?


By that time, shooting every one you see that didn't look like you was considered nasty. No more bounties to collect, no oil rights, and lots of rules.

Scepcop - an article which provides an overview of what is probably the worst genocide in history is available at http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php? ... &aid=15650

The brutality involved is utterly shocking.

The native Americans did not have the animals or the plants to farm. So they had to stay hunter gatherers. One reason for this is that the area of the North America is far smaller than the area of Europe and Asia combined. This gives a lot less room for these plants and animals to evolve.

Guns are still a better weapon than a bow and arrow. This is shown by the fact that they were used when they could be used.

+ smallpox and other diseases as mentioned above.
