"My name is wasi'chu. I know thee, I have found thee, & I will not let thee go."

The Lakota were the first people who lived on the northern plains of what today is the United States. Lakota means "human beings". Wasi'chu is their word for a human condition based on inhumanity, racism, exploitation, and greed. It is a sickness, a seemingly incurable, contagious and fatal disease, which begot the ever-advancing society of the West".["The Continuing Indian Wars", by Bruce Johansen and Robert Maestas.]


The Trail of Broken Treaties, an Indian manifesto:

"You know the cause of our making war. It is known to all white men. They ought to be ashamed of it."

[Pompeo: I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole]

It was the Nez Perce tribal chief "Thunder Rolling Down the Mountain", better known as Chief Joseph who is credited with coining the phrase --white man speaks with forked tongue".

The US government has made more than 500 agreements, promises, and treaties with Native American tribes, all of which it breached, in one way or another.

During the 20th century the US has failed to honor its word on many agreements, such as the broken 1950's Geneva Agreements that led to the Korean War in 1950, and the Vietnam War that lasted for decades after World War Two. It is estimated that as many as 8 million people were killed in those two conflicts.

When it comes to nuclear weapons, the US has failed to join, breached or withdrawn from treaties, and recklessly been the cause of the Doomsday Clock sitting at 2 minutes until Armageddon. Obama lost 4 minutes during his watch.

The US withdrew from the historic Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM) and the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). The US is in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and has been from almost the beginning in 1968.
