This is Psychovant the Duck again, with your regular scheduled American 
history lesson.

Yeah, all the American students learned about this next one.  But the 
lesson has changed since Donald the Duck went to school.

*  What About the Great Columbus?  He was purely the Caribbean. 
And he pretty much ruined the place, with a combination of slavery and 
disease (too many diseases to count, with even the Black Death plague). 
After then, Spain mostly just lunged after places that had gold or at 
least silver.  Speaking of which... well, that leads to our next lesson.

   -  But "ruin" is a relative term.  Sure, 97% of the native population 
died.  But the whole island that now has Haiti on it, was made great for 
letting pigs and cattle run wild!  Pirates took great advantage of that.
