Are there and have been many cases in human history, where invaders don't know they are invaders?

    Yes. Most of the New World was 'settled' by invaders, but they would not describe themselves as such.

    The Romans invaded Britain and stayed for years.

    Maybe the "pioneers and Settlers" who invaded our country didn't think they were invaders. They were following that white angel named "manifest destiny". Maybe those "49ers" also thought they weren't invaders when they came from all over the world to take over calif. Maybe all those "homesteaders" who came from all over the world to claim some of that "free land" the govt was giving away didn't know they were taking it from us, who had settled it thousands of years earlier. Or, maybe they just didn't care.

    How about all the European foreign influences, into America, they would never admit they were invaders but that''s exactly what they were, btw isn't this politics?  nvm you changed it now, all good
