“We have pacified some thousands of the islanders and buried them; destroyed their fields; burned their villages, and turned their widows and orphans out-of-doors; furnished heartbreak by exile so some dozens of disagreeable patriots; . . . And so, by these Providences of God – and the phrase is the government’s not mine – we are a World Power.”
