When we colonized North America, why did we not use the Russian experience?

When Russian Empire was conquering other smaller nations, towns, okrugs, they did not mass murder anyone.aren't like Americans,and British, Russians were very smart, they did not have Inquisitions to try and force their religion, values, beliefs, language on those who were conquered, Instead they offered infrastructure, stability, protection, education, there was no need to rebel or retaliate. They said you can live as you do now with all of extras that we are offering to you, but from now on you will be know as part of the Russian Empire.


To Shovel Ready.

Huh, I understand that you ara an idiot like most of the Americans.

However, it is really a good experience.

Update 2:

Huh, I respect Stalin.

Thanks to the USSR, we live in the world, where no Hitler.

Update 3:

Can you recognize, that the US is an evil empire?

Update 4:

Not give stupid links!

Update 5:

To Earle.

Yep. I agree with you. The modern Americans don't want to recognize, that the US killed a lot of millions of indians.

Update 6:

to Andy and Suzanne M

I work as a historian and I know the real Russian history.

Not from TV like most of the Americans.

    Because the American colonials viewed the native Americans as savages.

  • Have you read the history of Russia. The Czars were not fluffy lovable chaps. The Time of Troubles did not end well. The expansion of the Muscovite empire was not as peaceful as you describe, and worse... when the Communists took over, they had Inquisitions to root out Christians, Jews, and other believers from positions of power. They forced people with their family into gulags if they disagreed politically, wiped out a whole region of the country with a forced famine.

    Not sure what part of Russian history you're talking about? Maybe before the Mongols/Tartars came through?
