9-11 is NOT the worse act of Terrorism on American Soil

______

It is real popular to justify American troops in Iraq and Afganistan by saying their military presence is stopping the spread of terrorism. But, history is actually repeating itself with the same sensationalism that spawned the early American newpapers.

I am kind of fed up over the propaganda:

"THE ACTS THAT OCCURED DURING 9-11 ARE THE WORSE ACTS OF TERRORISM TO EVER OCCUR ON AMERICAN SOIL."

Don't get me wrong.

My heart goes out to the dead, their families and those who's lives are forever affected by the 9-11 events.

But,

how come America has never acknowledged the "AMERICAN HOLOCOST" where millions of Indian people were murdered in this country by terrorists??????

This IS "THE WORSE ACT OF TERROSISM TO OCCUR ON AMERICAN SOIL!" because it's millions vs. thousands - or are Indian people's lives not as valuable as other Americans?

Depending on the source, there was an estimated 10 to 40 million inhabitants living in North America at the time of European contact.

By 1900, the population of combined Indian, First Nations and Alaska Native peoples was less than 250 thousand, leaving whole tribes and cultures (too numerous to list) EXTINCT!

How did they die?

Millions of them died by "Institutionalized Genocide," which included "calculated murder by both European and American Governments." The intentional spread of diseased blankets to be traded to Indian nations did the most devastation. These blankets were then traded further and further into the heart of Indian country. In them were the foreign diseases small pox, measles, typhoid, cholera, diphtheria, TB and VD.

But then lets not forget the uncalculable incidents where indigenous peoples were killed for sport or for their property. Isn't this terrorism?
