extermination or dislocation (i.e. ethnic cleansing) can be a way of 
securing people's land and resources; it can also be a way of 
terrorizing other people into keeping in line.

note that Churchill uses the word genocide with its United Nations 
definition, that does not require extermination, just policies or 
actions meant to destroy a people's collective identity. in my post i 
express my reticences with some implications of this defintion.
