See? Good Guys seem to follow me!
I also used to know a pretty radical but trustworthy Seneca that I used to work with in the late 70s who liked me because I "liked guns" (and probably because I "didn't have a dog in the fight" in the troubles between the Seneca Nation of Indians and the local whites in the only US city that is actually on a reservation....) that was actually a "warrior" at the AIM "uprising" at Wounded Knee in the early 70s, (Late 60s? I can't remember....) that told me he stood "night guard duty" during the standoff with an M2 Carbine they gave him, but with only ten rounds in the mag.
He said he never shot it, but he was tempted every night to empty the mag at a tree just to see how it worked.
He also told me the press never told the complete truth about it, that there were a LOT more US Marshalls killed and wounded than the official accounts said in the initial skirmishes before the "standoff," and that he saw that the actual Indian "fighters" had "quite a few AK-47s," which leads me to believe that just MAYBE the KGB was involved a little, just like they were involved "a little" in the Civil RIghts Movement, and the race riots in the 60s, and the SDS and the protests against the Vietnam War in the 70s....(There were NOT a lot of "legal" AKs in the States in the 60s and 70s....!)
And as an aside, (that probably belongs in another thread, sorry) even though I know this country is pretty divided in opinions about the war in Iraq, I wonder if when they DO manage a protest about the war they only draw about 43 people (about 10 of them being obviously drug addled 1960s Hippes, 20 of them Move-on-dot -Org-spittle-on-lips wacko I-hate-George Bush liberals, and the rest being Democrat Congressman and Senators trying to get on TV) and remembering all the tens of thousands of protesters of Vietnam clogging every college campus and the mall in DC shown every night on Walter Cronkite.....I just WONDER how much of that back then just MIGHT have been financed by the KGB....Hhhmmm....
