19. you are absolutely correct with this
and not as a justification or to get into a slanging match with you, it is hard to stomach criticism from the USA as the historical treatment of Native Americans is not especially first class either.

As a historian I am sure you know this.

Re the taking the children away, they are known as the Stolen Generation. They have been seeking an apology from the government for many years. Howard and his conservatives dismissed this out of hand. However the new Rudd Government went to the elections with a platform of apologising. I hope he does it as it will go somewhat towards a proper reconciallition. You may be surprised how many Australians want this to happen. Have a look at the site below.
