Just wondering, if Spain ever apologized for the mass murdering and despoiling of resources of South American civilizations, perpetrated by Conquistadors?

Why in Heaven's name should they? The people of Spain and South America today have enough problems with the present.

The problems in South America are BECAUSE OF SPANISH COLONIZATION. They stole millions of dollars in gold from the island, raped and murdered and spread disease and to this day the people of these islands are still poverty stricken and uneducated. Learn your history and due your research.

I'd be interested in any "apologies" that were made recently, aside from Reagan to Japanese Americans, the Pope made a half-assed apologies to the Jews. You forget: an apology is an admission of guilt and it opens up the question of reparations. You also forget the Portuguese, French, Dutch and English were part of this. What do you mean the people of these islands ?? Europeans subjugated the entire Western Hemisphere. Did the Catholic church ever apologize to these people? How about apologizing for the Crusades or the Inquisition? African slaves were brought in because the natives were becoming extinct-more subjugation. After losing a war Japan and Germany are leading economies. India and China came from 'poverty' and are now the leading world economies. Yet, you blame the Spanish for something Columbus did more than 500 years ago for the condition of South America today. You are confused, mis-informed, and should "due your homework".
