    Ethnic Cleansing and Genocide in North America and Kosovo
    "What is to be said of the irony of bringing in Apache helicopters, or tomahawk cruise missiles to rain down NATO's bombs of fury on the Milosevic regime in Yugoslavia? The unself-conscious ease with which the United States and its NATO allies use the names and symbols of Indigenous North American peoples to describe the weaponry in their arsenal, surely speaks to the paradoxes of this bring-in-the-new-millenium war."

    Papal Bull Inter Caetera (Alexander VI), May 4, 1493
    Columbus' discovery in 1492 of supposedly Asiatic lands in the western seas threatened the unstable relations between the kingdoms of Portugal and Castile, which had been jockeying for position and possession of colonial territories for more than a century. The bull Inter caetera became a major document in the development of legal doctrines regarding claims of empire in the "new world." An English translation from the original Latin.
    Papal Bull Romanus Pontifex (Nicholas V), January 8, 1455
    The bull Romanus Pontifex is an important example of the Papacy's claim to spiritual lordship of the whole world and of its role in regulating relations among Christian princes and between Christians and "unbelievers" ("heathens" and "infidels"). This bull became the basis for Portugal's later claim to lands in the "new world," a claim which was countered by Castile and the bull Inter caetera in 1493. An English translation from the original Latin.
