William Johnson, “Waraghiyagay” as the Iroquois called him, negotiated an alliance for the British Crown with the Iroquois. Without the support of the very powerful Iroquois confederation the British most assuredly would have lost the Seven years war in North America and all of Canada would be French speaking.

    The true era of genocide against Native Americans in what is now the USA began during the Revolutionary war when George Washington ordered General Sullivan into western New York and the Mohawk valley to wage a war of annihilation using scorched earth tactics to destroy all Iroquois villages, homes, farms and crops and indiscriminately killing men, women and children. Gen. Sullivan was remarkably successful and Gen. Washington continued to use genocide as a matter of national policy from that point on.

    So the Brits had many dishonorable dealings with the aboriginal North American people they were no where near as culpable as the American Colonist/Nation was.

    What does that have to do with Iran supplying the Houthis? Nothing is the answer.

    Actually it was exactly as relevant as your reply.
    It is the responsibility of every American citizen to own a modern military rifle.

    Sounds like a conspiracy of dunces, somebody should write a book about it.

    I might add that the British never attempted to wipe out Native Canadians.

    No they did not...but the Brits weren't as successful in their relationships with the aboriginal Americans as the French were.
