Pedant mode on-

I think you meant "dynastic" rather than "Napoleonic." The Napoleonic Wars took place about forty years after the last F&I War in America.

That last F&I War actually started here and spread to Europe (where it became the Seven Years' War). But yes, the three before that were extensions of European wars:

Here - King William's War. There - War of the League of Augsburg.

Here - Queen Anne's War. There - War of the Spanish Succession.

Here - King George's War. There - War of the Austrian Succession.

Uh-huh. So it was Europeans who started the corn trade between the agricultural Huron and the hunter-gatherer tribes to their north? It was Europeans who founded the wampum works on Long Island and then pretended to be surprised both at their discovery and their value to the Indians?

It seems your propaganda is based on the poor quality of American education and Dances with Wolves.

The Amerinds were human beings just like the rest of us. No better or no worse, just different. Life was not idyllic before the Europeans showed up. It was nasty, brutal and short. Were it not for the advances of the West the entire world would still live in a state of bondage much like it has for the last 15,000 years. For anyone to argue that the world would be better off if there had not been the social and the technological advances of the West only shows the depth of success of the nihilistic forces that have been undermining the West for over a century.

Well said.

The West is an upper-middle-class suburban teen, and she's a cutter.
