American Colonialism

By Thomas Ivan Dahlheimer

An official United Nations document describes the Doctrine of Discovery as a principle of international law that developed in a series of 15th century papal bulls and 16th century charters by European monarchs. The UN document also states that the doctrine was - and is - a racist philosophy that gave white Christian Europeans the green light to go forth and claim the lands and resources of non-Christian peoples and kill or enslave them. And that it sanctioned the genocide of indigenous peoples in the New World and elsewhere.

Another UN document states that the Doctrine of Discovery has been institutionalized in law and policy, on national and international levels, and lies at the root of the violations of indigenous peoples' human rights, both individual and collective. This has resulted in State claims to and the mass appropriation of the lands, territories and resources of indigenous peoples.

In conclusion I would like to say that European countries, and our country (the United States of America) is owned and operated by and for the benefit of the multinational neo-conservative conglomerates who make their profits off stolen resources and lands, at the expense of oppressed and subjugated Indigenous people worldwide.

Their policy is called Colonialism and it is nothing but theft and murder. Our country spends trillions of dollars internationally and domestically carrying out those policies of invading other countries or manipulating assassinations and coups to destabilize governments in order to set up and prop up despot two bit dictator regimes who are bribed to subjugate their people with intimidation, kidnappings, rape and murder, to enable the foreign multinational conglomerates to steal their resources and lands.

We have 750-900 bases in 125-235 countries, depending on if Ron Paul or Jesse Ventura is talking, manned by the neocon-owned CIA, military intelligence or mercenaries. We spend trillions to enable million and billion dollar profits for a select few like Halliburton, KBR, Shell, BP or Exxon and their bribed political prostitutes like Obama, Boehner, Pelosi, Feinstein and Cantor, as well as Scalia and Thomas.

In return we get the trillion dollar bill and the resulting terrorist attacks by people incensed at seeing their people murdered in order for foreigners to steal their resources. It's called Colonialism and most descendants of the illegal European immigrants refuse to admit that the policies of colonialism are nothing but theft and murder and results in terrorism. To do so they'll be forced to admit to the world that our government is guilty of theft and murder and together with their neo con masters, are guilty of theft and murder and are ultimately responsible for the murder of 3,000 Americans on 9/11.
