    Only epidemic disease among both North and South American tribes made European settlement possible. Is history repeating itself in the Amazon rainforest, an area origionally larger than Europe? The growing industrial populations of South American nations with their growing commercial economies are hungry for land, and Brazil especially is determined to become a global economic power by exploiting the vast resources of the Amazon jungles; but the native peoples have first claim to that entire area and most of them want to keep it as wilderness. Their legal rights are protected by international law, but if they simply disappeared from epidemic diseases, the land would be open for development. So there is the motive for yet another terrible crime against humanity, among so many others down through recorded history and before.
