Why did the United States destroy the Indians, why is Russia much kinder than the United States and did not destroy other peoples?

Surely you jest. Stalin killed more people than Hitler, most of them his own fellow Soviet citizens.

LOL - So Russia doesn't destabilize & intimidate it's neighbors?? Russia hardly has a neighboring country that doesn't fear, loath & despise them.

It was not just the US that destroyed the Indians, it was the European settlers, the colonialists all over the American continents. While it's true that the newly created US did in fact practice genocide of the native Americans, so too did the colonialists and new European formed nations of Central and South America.
In fact some estimate that roughly 95% of the indigenous natives were killed outright or died of disease transported by the Europeans. Why? There were all kinds of reason given for the murders, but the two most logical ones are racial prejudice and greed. It was the white man versus the red man. And it was they, the native Americans, had the land that the Europeans wanted.
If any culture deserves reparations from the US government, it's the Native Americans...the so-called Indians.
As to Russia you are so wrong I have to wonder if you even know anything about Russia. Under the Tsars and under the Soviet regimes, millions of cultures were murdered in order to cleanse their population for the Russians.

It is also known as the Terror-Famine and Famine-Genocide in Ukraine, and sometimes referred to as the Great Famine or the Ukrainian Genocide of 1932–33.Source(s): bisexual Christian

Wow you are completely ignorant on these
Issues. Our Indians sided with kings in other
Countries and were killing our people. That
Is why the trail of tears happened. Russia
Starved to death millions of their own people
After World War II by selling 90% of their crop
Food to foreign countries and leaving their
People with nothing to eat during a blistering
Cold winter. Families were forced to turn to
Eating their own families members who died
Just to survive. Cannibalism became normal
To Russians. Got it naive dim wit?
