To be honest, even the native Americans had problems with us vikings.

The vikings didn't have guns. They did not spread deceases. They did not have horses. and they did not murder all of the buffaloes. So they where on equal ground.

Those vikings that went to America came originally from Iceland, which originates mostly to Norway and Denmark, but still...

You're then only 40-50% right in this case.

P.S It seems the Icelandic people didn't inhabit America due to the fact it was inhabited by the native Americans...good guy Iceland.

Lol, good guy Iceland? My ass! The reason why there is an Iceland is because the natives were to ferocious and the Vikings were outnumbered and were in a foreign land. No the reason that it is believed that Colonists were able to get foot-hold on North America and the Vikings weren't was because there was a massive breakout in illness before the Colonists arrived.

This meant the colonists had whole villages that were empty and able to support them.

The vikings found Iceland before they found America...

Therefore, the reason there is an Iceland is because they already had towna and villages there long before they sailed west. When they reached the shores of America they were intrigued by beauty and decided to call it Vínland. After some days of camping and exploring, they stumbled upon these natives. The natives, being more primitive than the Icelandic people, became quite aggressive. The Icelandic people had no intentions of war against some indians, so they sailed out back to Iceland; however, they did plan to go back there and try to reason with them but they decided not to invade their lands.

Why do I know this? Because I AM from Iceland and I've been studying Icelandic history for 12 years.
