Although Washington’s secret plan of 1783 made the USA's goals evident, the first tribe that the USA made a post-revolution treaty with was the Cherokee.� The 1785 Hopewell Treaty was about the only one that did not make land cessions a part of it.� High-minded happenings in Washington translated poorly to the frontier.� White invaders had zero respect for the Hopewell Treaty, and the breakaway “state” of Franklin ran the Cherokee off their lands, and in 1788 murdered several elderly chiefs under a truce flag.� Although natives could perform atrocities, it was nearly always provoked, and a disinterested frontier observer remarked that settlers were “in the wrong four times out of five.” [199] � Another of Attakullakulla’s sons participated in the 1791 annihilation of the American Army in the Ohio River Valley, but in 1794, all Cherokee factions signed another treaty with the USA.� In 1792, the USA allocated funding to begin turning Native Americans into European peasants, and the Cherokee were the logical tribe to begin the experiment on.� The USA began providing plows, spinning wheels, and other European technology.� It was not exactly an altruistic move.� Sedentary farmers and craftsmen needed far less land than hunter-gatherers, and the Cherokee adopted the white man’s ways in order to survive.� That transformation caused upheaval within the Cherokee people, as many of the white man’s ways were disgusting to native sensibilities.� Nevertheless, the Cherokee adopted European methods to such an extent that the name “civilized” was applied to their tribe and others who adopted similar practices.� The Cherokee became cotton growers and cloth weavers instead of deer hunters and skinners.� Apparently, George Washington genuinely tried the assimilation policy on the Cherokee, especially after the 1791 disaster .� The Cherokee kept ceding lands in “treaties,” in 1798, 1804, 1805, and 1806.� Some pro-French Cherokee migrated to today’s Arkansas in 1763, after the French lost the war against the British and the Spanish granted them land.� Pro-British Cherokee also began migrating there in 1782.� After the USA “bought” the land by the Louisiana Purchase, in an 1817 treaty it officially recognized the Western Cherokee.� Under pressure from white settlers, the Western Cherokee were induced to move to Oklahoma in 1828.

Zbigniew Brzezinski was the Henry Kissinger of Jimmy Carter’s administration, engineering American foreign policy during the late 1970s.� According to Brzezinski, in an interview with a French magazine in 1998, he helped create the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan.� According to the official story until Brzezinski’s interview, the USA pumped billions of dollars in arms and training into the Afghanistan rebels as a reaction to the Soviet Union’s invasion.� Brzezinski set the record straight.� He was behind arming and inciting the Afghanistan rebels six months before the Soviet Union invaded.� In light of the devastation of Afghanistan (half its population either dead, disabled, or refugees) and the Islamic fundamentalist Taliban in charge, Brzezinski was asked if he regretted his decision to bait the Soviet Union into invading Afghanistan.� Brzezinski replied: “Regret what?� That secret operation was an excellent idea.� It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it?� The day the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: ‘We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam War.’� Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.” [392] � As Brzezinski saw things, sacrificing Afghanistan in the USA's global chess game with communism was an acceptable price to pay.� Brzezinski asked what was worse, the menace of the Soviet Union or the Taliban ruling in Afghanistan.� In interv iews over the years, particularly those with Robert Fisk, Osama bin Laden made clear the source of his ire toward the USA: The USA established a military presence in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War, and Arabia contains Islam’s holiest sites; The USA-inflicted genocide of the Iraqi people since the Gulf War; Using Osama bin Laden and friends as Cold War pawns came back to haunt the USA.� The World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks of September 11, 2001 are seen around the world as the global Godzilla finally getting a bloody nose.� I was far from alone in publicly predicting something like it .� The shock and horror of the attacks were only a few hours old when talk of revenge began appearing.� Osama bin Laden and friends were named almost immediately, and George Bush the Second’s finger pointed straight at Afghanistan.� The day af ter the 9/11 attacks, Bush said: Bush called for Afghanistan to hand over Osama bin Laden.� Early on, Bush’s rhetoric and actions failed to mesh.� The Taliban offered to serve up bin Laden to a neutral nation for trial, but just as his father did, George Bush refused to engage in any negotiations, as the war drums pounded once again.� If justice was Bush’s goal, he picked a strange way to show it, as he pointedly ignored any attempts that the Taliban made to respond to his demands, or even try to use international justice systems (which the USA has consistently undermined) to respond to the immense crimes of September 11, 2001. [393] � Bush took the bully’s route, as nearly all American presidents have done.� America’s economic induc ements to attack Afghanistan were underplayed to the point of being nearly invisible in America’s media.� The world’s last great region of unexploited oil and gas reserves is Central Asia .� Trillions of dollars of oil and gas sit beneath that region, and American oil companies had been trying for years to exploit it, which it could not do while the Soviet Union existed.� As with the Gulf War, the World Trade Center attacks made for a convenient excuse to move in a military presence, in neocolonial fashion.
