How would they thrive and prosper in this deal? And why are there so many unemployed Indians? Why can't they get jobs?

Who the hell does the UN think they are?
The same Org. north america pressures into taking similar action in a multitude of nation/states...
What's good for the goose is good for the gander...
No one will argue what happened to the native Americans was a really crappy thing to have happened NO ONE but the simple fact is that is the only reason you and I even exist in this world.

Fascinating...and well said by the way. My family is Scot-Irish and yes....the Scots can be very 'tribal"....we called them clans but not much different than tribes....it's all about community and sticking together to overcome a challenge or threat....we really could stand to learn a lot about those principles today.....
but....there isn't much profit in propagating a clan or an ideal....so...why bother....(end sarcasm)
I get such a hoot out of the folks on this thread that a thread or two over...a day or two ago....were all about crushing the oppressive government....stopping the "nation building" and bringing the troops home....but when they are suddenly having to ask themselves questions about the very foundation of what we are fighting about....they get kinda funny.....denial is a wonderful place....I hear the summers in Cairo are sweltering though....

How about the UN telling Australia to give back all the aboriginal lands?

Here is a scenario for you. I sneak in your house at night and attack you during your sleep. A fight breaks out and I use my concealed firearm to get the upper hand when you only had a knife. Then I tell you I'm going to give you five dollars for the house itself and everything inside of it. If you take the deal you sign a contract. If not I shoot you dead. Still think they made a poor decision.
So you believe because Someone has better weaponry than someone else they can go just take their land and hold them up for whatever ludicrous demands they want? Your ignorance is showing.

Ah, I think you should take a look at the census, genius. There are over 2 million American Indian enrolled tribal members. Many more people have ancestors or are in tribes that are not federally recognized.
