You asked a 2 part question, do you deny that we dont still directly control them?
sure the initial invasion was in the past, but our control is still present day, and reservation land is supposed to be theirs... and we still take the land away at a whim (see some politician can make some money) and we tell them to sod off when they complain.
You may not be a democrat but you certainly are far to the left of most people.

It is absurd because this hacker group is being equated with the Russian state.
Yes, how could a group of hackers who use a bear as their mascot allegedly hack into the Olympic database to expose American doping possibly be connected to the Russian government? Since this is the Mud Pit, I'd like to point out that your post was exceptionally stupid. Please tell me you don't really believe what you said.

It also turns the spotlight on the Obama Administration's inability to protect classified and secret material. In essence, its shown how incompetent our current defense leaders are.
Interesting how the MSM hasn't asked that question. If classified and secret material keeps getting hacked/stollen, well who's in charge of preventing that from happening. But then that turns the attention towards Obama, Hillary and the crew....
Hence, fake news from a fake MSM.

What's good for one nation is not always bad for another nation. There are many groups vying for power, not all nations, some outside manipulating nations. Various nations have alliances, etc. It's infinitely more complicated than what's good for Russia is bad for the US and vice versa.

Where did I say that the US was innocent? I specifically asked which countries the US still has control over. By the way, while the native conquering was awful, that happened a while back and isn't recent. There isn't much the US can do at this point to fix that. The US certainly isn't going to cede over land to the natives to build a new nation.
You mention Vietnam for instance. If anything our post-intervention there was the best of any other country. We completely abandoned that country for half a century and let them do their own thing. Now Vietnam is an ok country.
