Are we smart enough to recognize G E N O C I D E?

Are We? Can We? Do we even know what G E N O C I D E is? But to know it is to understand it-

GENOCIDE

gen·o·cide

noun

  1. the deliberate killing of a large number of people from a particular nation or ethnic group with the aim of destroying that nation or group”a campaign of genocide
  2. “Similar: racial killing massacre

And we need Examples-

before we can ever come to such knowledge as to allow us to ever recognize Genocide-

Sand Creek did not just happen at the same time as the Civil War. It, as well as many other mass killings, was seen in the West (and by military commanders in the East) as a function of that war, an auxiliary battlefront. If Chivington’s men were unusually cruel, it was because the intense pressure on the Union Army east of the Mississippi made it necessary to enlist poorly trained and ill-disciplined volunteers in the West.

And that last sentence is supposed to justify what happened?

Howling Wolf (CheyenneHo-na-nist-to, 1849–July 5, 1927) was a Southern Cheyenne warrior who was a member of Black Kettle’s band and was present at the Sand Creek Massacre in Colorado. After being imprisoned in the Fort Marion in Saint Augustine, Florida in 1875, Howling Wolf became a proficient artist in a style known as Ledger art for the accounting ledger books in which the drawings were done.

And now for our 1st example of a G E N O C I D E

SAND CREEK MASSACRE

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sand_Creek_massacre

The Sand Creek massacre (also known as the Chivington massacre, the battle of Sand Creek or the massacre of Cheyenne Indians) was a massacre of Cheyenne and Arapaho people by the U.S. Army in the American Indian Wars that occurred on November 29, 1864, when a 675-man force of the Third Colorado Cavalry[5] under the command of U.S. Volunteers Colonel John Chivington attacked and destroyed a village of Cheyenne and Arapaho people in southeastern Colorado Territory,[6] killing and mutilating an estimated 69 to over 600 Native American people. Chivington claimed 500 to 600 warriors were killed. However, most sources estimate around 150 people were killed, about two-thirds of whom were women and children.[4][2][7][3] The location has been designated the Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site and is administered by the National Park Service. The massacre is considered part of a series of events known as the Colorado War.

The Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851 was signed on September 17, 1851 between United States treaty commissioners and representatives of the CheyenneSiouxArapahoCrowAssiniboineMandanHidatsa, and Arikara Nations. Also known as Horse Creek Treaty, the treaty set forth traditional territorial claims of the tribes.[1]

The United States acknowledged that all the land covered by the treaty was Indian territory and did not claim any part of it. The boundaries agreed to in the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851 would be used to settle a number of claims cases in the 20th century.[2] The Native Americans guaranteed safe passage for settlers on the Oregon Trail and allowed roads and forts to be built in their territories, in return for promises of an annuity in the amount of fifty thousand dollars for fifty years. The treaty should also “make an effective and lasting peace” among the eight tribes, each of them often at odds with a number of the others.[3]

Killing, you might say, is in American Blood. But killing Indians is not the only Killings that have taken place

In order to recognize G R N O C I D E we must Study about Mass Killings. We cannot now overlook the G E N O C I D E taking place in Ukraine. After all, that is the main Objective of the INVADERS.

But the most horrific Winter ever recorded is Coming and with it, a huge Death Toll will befall both sides. As many as 350,000-2 Million may Die.
