You Americans should more correctly be saying 'God please FORGIVE America" - that at least would be a HONEST assessment for ONCE in your lives!
How in the holy name of HONESTY, INTELLIGENCE and RESPONSIBILITY- can any of you even begin to think that 'God is pleased with America and has blessed it abundantly' just because your political nation-state is wealthy? (that is like Pablo Escobar thinking God had blessed him because he was untouchable and filthy rich for many years and nothing could go wrong for him - he had it ALL for a time...but his 'abundance' was the product of his EVIL DEEDS...just like yours...and your time is coming to an end just like Pablo's) Not the one true God of Heaven I assure you...but the other guy down here in the red suit in your imagination - yes he surely HAS blessed you, because not a single decade has passed since your creation that you have not engaged in killing some people somewhere on the Earth.....truly you are doing your real 'father's work, and rendering unto him the blood sacrifices of innocents that he requires of thee - as his faithful servants.
What is going on today on treatied sovereign land is blatantly in violation of treaties made between the US government and Indigenous American tribes. NO ONE, NO corporation, No government entity nor any military or police force is allowed on Sovereign treaty land without being invited to come on the land by the tribe. Dealing with Indigenous peoples on their Sovereign treaty land is the same as dealing with any other country in the world. NOTHING comes on tribal land without permission of the people. All of this oil drilling, fracking, destruction of of our clean water sources is against federal law. The United States government has broken every treaty ever made with any and all of our Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (AKA USA), and it still continues. The United Nations accepted and ratified the Declaration of Indigenous Rights, which have been accepted by all countries all over the world, of which the United States was one of the LAST to sign. The UN is at the DAPL camps and monitoring the current situation, but we need more of a UN presence there to stand with our Indigenous people and help back up the Declaration of Indigenous Rights that Indigenous peoples from all over the world worked on for 14 years through Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII). The governments of the world are controlled by six major corporations and therefore DO NOT have the best interest of this country, nor it's people, at heart. This is not just a protest of Indigenous people for Indigenous rights. We are Indigenous people protesting and protecting our resources for all of humanity for generations to come. Corporations and government are only concerned about what sort of a profit they can make and not the well-being of our future generations. It very simple, people. Without clean, usable water, we ALL die. Mashu White-Feather (Cherokee Tribal Nation, North America)
