Global Research - by Paul Craig Roberts:
"When did things begin going wrong in America?
" 'From the beginning', answer some. English colonists, themselves under the thumb of a king, exterminated American Indians and stole their lands, as did late 18th and 19th century Americans. Over the course of three centuries the native inhabitants of America were dispossessed, just as Israelis have been driving Palestinians off their lands since 1948."
