The Native Americans were backward technologically not because they were genetically inferior as the Whites had believed them to be, but because of their geographical isolation away from the centers of ancient civilizations, and this was purely an accident of history – there is simply no assurance that two tribes of equal intelligence will end up equally on the achievement scale when they become geographically separated -- or else the hundreds of millions of Caucasians living in India would have achieved the same degree of technological prowess as their West European counterparts in the 19th century.

That the Native Americans had begun to migrate from East Asia across the Beringia landbridge (now the Bering Sea due to rise in sea-level) 11,000 years ago is not a conjecture – it is a genetically-authenticated historical fact. Their DNA makeups are the same as those of present-day East Asians -- the Han Chinese and the Mongolians -- and are thus quite different from those of European descendants of the Neanderthals.

The readily-accepted myth inside the Beltway these days is that the Americans had somehow misread Chinese intentions – that they had intentionally been 'fooled' into believing that by admitting China into the WTO in 2000, China should have become a Western-style nation like an over-sized Japan albeit without the industrial capabilities, but with enough manpower to supply every American lad with Nike shoes at a buck a pair, that China would have become a huge sweat-shop for American investors who would be raking in the lion’s share of the profits, leaving merely crumbs for the rural migrant workers.

That was their rationale.  That was their intent.  The results didn't exactly pan out the way they wanted.
