Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That is an extremely thought-provoking -- and troubling -- comparison.  I do not know much about native American resistance to U.S. expansionism, territorial appropriation and ethnic cleansing.  I would definitely like to read more about it.

I still say killing civilians for political purposes is unjustified: even if you're own people are getting ethnically cleansed, even if your own family was murdered by the invaders (as in Geronimo's case).

Out of the Dark Age came the most magnificent thing we have in our society: the recognition that people can have a society without having a state.
