So, are we to believe that for another 4 million dollars, the water and imaginary sacred lands would have been just fine then? Also, the route they are following now to cross the Missouri river follows an ALREADY EXISTING natural gas line that was put in during the 1980s. One that that the tribe is perfectly fine with, and has caused absolutely no problems.
All of this information is a matter of public record, and has been reported locally but for some reason, the national media has decided to just ignore. But then again, I guess that information might keep the morons that get their information from fucking internet memes from actually understanding what is really happening there.
