Can imperialism in this situation be justified
No, it cannot be justified, as the "Americans" just barged into a land that was already owned by someone else and took over, just so that they could profit and escape the hardships of their own country.
Imperialism - a policy of extending a country's power and influence through diplomacy or military force.
It can not be justified because in the land that the "Americans" insist they have found was actually a home to the Native Americans. They did not take the land in a fair way because the native americans did not have guns like the "Americans" which means that it was not a fair fight. All that the Native Americans had were rock spears and some other weapons made out of rocks. ( Weapons made out of materials they could find )
