Yep, this is just one of the more recent examples. But that doesn't do a thing to solve our current issues faced in this region, and can't be used as a justification of inaction.

Many of these countries ran the area depending on the strength of the tribe and as this could alter so did the borders. Many of these borders were fixed internationally as with out borders and fixed areas just so that one knew who runs what. Now what would happen if Mexico started to push for the return of its lands that America took from them and set up borders to suit them self's, all countries do it including America.

And my own country (the USA) for which for which I have proudly served waged a centuries long bloody war of extermination against it's own indigenous people.
