INTERNET SCAMMER AND WEALTH TRANSFER
The Spanish were very jealous of their American possessions and all the riches they found in them. Not only did they proclaim absolute rule over them but they prevented any foreigners from coming near them, all the wealth of the new world had to go to Spain and nowhere else. All the goods that went into the new world had to come from Spain and nowhere else.
The other nations of Europe especially England, French and Holland resented this. Since it was impossible to trade peacefully with the Spanish, the only way for them, to share in the riches of the Americas was to steal them. As you can see the English, France and Dutch were once thieves and armed robbers (As a country).
That is exactly the worlds of Douglas butting in his book the pirates of the Spanish Main.
