Question: Discuss the motives and discoveries of the 16th century voyages of exploration. When my grandfather talked to me about his wartime experiences, it was briefly and obviously something that he did not like dwelling on.� He said that comrades adorned their quarters with Japanese skulls, and black American soldiers were treated like the lowest caste, something that he was pained to see even then.� My grandfather was a poet of international reputation, but he did not have much nice to say about his World War II experiences and it left deep scars on his psyche.� I am the first man in my family, going up my family tree for a hundred years, who did not serve in the American military, and my relatives’ military experiences damaged them all, to one degree or another.� My other grandfather was crippled in World War I and my father was in the Korean War, and they received deep emotional wounds.

Back in late 1997, the USA began beating the war drums again over the "weapons of mass destruction" that Saddam Hussein supposedly still harbored.� The USA's government clearly mobilized the American masses again to cheer another bombing of Iraq.� In November of 1997, I was moved for a second time to write a letter to the editor, that time to The Seattle Times, as I was back home in Washington.� They ran my letter on November 30th, 1997.� Here it is: It is not surprising that the first reference I have seen is not due to some "bleeding heart" American mainstream journalist digging up the facts, but was in response to our "Arab allies" refusing to fall into line and get behind a U.

The most recent presidential elections held in January 2001, at which time Jorge Fernando de Sampaio, a member of the Socialist Party, was reelected. Without his Indians, Cortes would have been doomed. He suggested that instead of using deductive reasoning, people should use inductive reasoning - in other words, they should gather evidence and then reach a conclusion based on the evidence. Other ev ents further demonstrated Jefferson’s humanity.� Near his home was an Indian burial mound, and not a long abandoned one.� Jefferson noted that about 30 years earlier, passing natives went 12 miles out of their way to visit the mound, where they solemnly stayed for “some time.”� The burial mound was about 40 feet in diameter and 12 feet high.� Jefferson made an excavation into the mound, cutting a ditch from end-to-end that he could walk through.� He took bones and examined them, noting that skulls generally fell apart in his hands.� Jefferson played archeologist, and estimated that about 1,000 natives were interred there. [160] � While Jefferson would declare that the “dead have no rights,” the burial mounds were sacred in the Indian view, as cemeteries are respected in white culture.� If Jefferson had played archeologist in a white cemetery, one not long ago visited by solemn descendants, he would have been called a grave robber. [161] In 1792, Jeffer son’s notes recorded a meeting with the British ambassador, George Hammond.� Hammond made the blunt observation that the Indians were the big losers in Europe’s New World, and that the USA's intentions appeared to be to “exterminate the Indians and take their lands.”� Jefferson replied that the USA's system was instead designed to protect the natives (too bad that Hammond could not produce Washington’s plan at that meeting), and that the USA had “no views of even purchasing any more lands from them for a long time.”� Between the meeting with Hammond and Jefferson’s handing over the presidency to James Madison in 1809, the USA had acquired, largely by deception and force, nearly 110 million acres of Indian lands. [162] In an 1803 letter to then Indiana governor William Henry Harrison, before the Lewis and Clark expedition was launched, Jefferson echoed Washington’s strategy by admitting that: “To promote this disposition to exchange lands, which they have to spare and we want, for necessaries, which we have to spare and they want, we shall push our trading uses, and be glad to see the good and influential individuals among them run in debt, because we observe that when these debts get beyond what the individuals can pay, they become willing to lop them off by a cession of lands.” And later in his letter: “As to their fear, we presume that our strength and their weakness is now so visible that they must see we have only to shut our hand to crush them, and that all our liberalities to them proceed from motives of pure humanity only.� Should any tribe be fool-hardy enough to take up the hatchet at any time, the seizing the whole country of that tribe, and driving them across the Mississippi, as the only condition of peace, would be an example to others, and a furtherance of our final consolidation.” Jefferson concluded by telling Harrison that it would be “improper” to reveal the content of his letter to the natives. [163] � The sitt ing president made his logic plain in 1807, and warned that, “In war, they shall kill some of us; we shall destroy all of them.”� In 1813 during his retirement, Jefferson made his intent clearer.� There were two choices regarding the natives, “extermination, or drive them to new seats beyond our reach.” [164] � Hitler drew inspiration from the way that America pursued its Final Solution, and regarded it as a forerunner of his programs.� Hitler sought to clear Eastern Europe of subhumans, for German “settlers.” [165] � The Big Three Founding Fathers were Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin.� Ben Franklin was the universal man of the English colonies who put America on the intellectual map.� He originally amassed a fortune in the printing business and is considered the father of America’s free press.� He then retired at a young age and pursued science, civics, and politics.
