Real Americans on the Culture of Corruption
My ears perked up hearing about the missle site in ND where protestors were arrested. I thought I heard the site is on Indian land. That made me think of the bunker buster test, Divine Strake, orginially scheduled for June, was also on Indian land or it was Indian land to begin with. Previously, the nevada site was a nuclear testing site. So how many of these kinds of military sites are located on original Indian land or present Indian owned land?
Hope all the culprits involved in the Indian casino boondoggle finally get the attention they deserve.
I don't know whether the Divine Strake site is widely considered sacred land. I take what AIM says with a grain of salt. Also, from what I can tell, the Western Shoshone are claiming lands that are very unlikely to be recognized as theirs by the courts. Kos diarist Blissing provides links that suggest that there is some basis in international law for the objection.
