Mr. Google, via Wikipedia tells me so.

Some Spaniard's kids born to native women in Florida preceded her but they wouldn't count to a conservative.

And, if only white Europeans count, what about the 11th century Vikings who landed and for a brief while, such as Labrador, set up colonies in Newfoundland, the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, and possibly others based on evidence of Norse artifacts found along the North Atlantic coast.

It's Benjamin Franklin.
How did Benny feel about the attitude of plundering other people's land, exterminating the inhabitants or forcing them west in exile, and doing the work of building a great nation in newly open lands on the backs of slave labor?
Mythological histories are always more appealing than real histories! Problem today is the American Empire is pushing this world to the brink of extinction because it is still trying to apply its founding myth in a crowded world, exhausted of most of its natural resources!

Who cares? Seriously. Who the fuck cares. The world is welcome to come to the bower and put down the USA menace at any fucking time. You are just like Euro trash. Run your mouth and put down the USA, until you need the USA. I propose and seriously believe the USA should adopt Isolation and leave the world to its own design. Let Canada take care of the world. You and your Eurotrash cronies run your fucking mouths. Put up I say.
Thanks from Sabcat

I wonder what the Carthaginians thought about Hannibal after his defeat by Rome and Rome sowed salt in their grain fields after razing Carthage to the ground?

What happened to Hannibal? Hannibal ran away but was eventually almost caught by Rome but he committed suicide before capture. Called the Punic Wars.

He didn't run away - he found opportunity to carry on the war against Rome in Asia Minor.

That's a laugh! As if the USA spends over 500 billion annually on military spending to "defend the world!" Russia's military budget fits inside of Trump's latest 54 billion boost in spending. This is what the game is really about:

"Full Spectrum Dominance: Totalitarian Democracy in the New World Order:"
Review of F. William Engdahl's book
By Stephen Lendman
Global Research, June 22, 2009
https://www.scribd.com/document/1665...trum-Dominance

For America to remain the sole superpower, controlling global oil and gas flows is crucial along with cutting off China from Caspian Sea reserves and securing the energy routes and networks between Russia and the EU.

It's why America invaded and occupies Afghanistan and Iraq, incited Baltic wars in the 1990s, attacked Kosovo and Serbia in 1999, threatens Iran repeatedly and imposes sanctions, and keeps trying to oust Hugo Chavez. For its part under Vladimir Putin, Russia's economy began to grow for the first time in decades. It's rich in oil and gas, and uses them strategically to gain influence enough to rival Washington, especially in alliance with China and other former Soviet states like Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan, united in the 2001-formed Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) with Iran and India having observer status.

Under Bush-Cheney, Washington reacted aggressively. "full spectrum dominance" is the aim with Russia and China the main targets. Controlling world energy resources is central, and nothing under Obama has changed. Iraq's occupation continues and Afghanistan operations are enhanced with increased troop deployments under newly appointed General Stanley McChrystal's command - a hired gun, a man with a reputation for brutishness that includes torture,assassinations, indifference to civilian deaths, and willingness to destroy villages to save them.
