Boy? lol<quoted text>
You need a history lesson, boy.
First you attempt to delegitimize Mexico by talking about the Spanish! Mexico is not Spain, moron.
Mexicans are indigenous to much of the continent, many of them having ancestors among peoples who lived in the USA or on both sides of the border (e.g., Yaquí).
NM had many Spanish and Mexicans in it, liar. The Spanish did effectively defeat the Puebloans.i
The Mexican War? Based on a lie. Pure land theft. An effort to extend slave territory westward. Despicable in so many ways.
"Mexico is not Spain, moron."
I never said it was.
Mexico is a country of selective crybabies!
What is funny is that the Mexican claim of the southwest was not the only territories they lost.
After the War of Independence, Mexico was broke and weak. They tried desperately to keep what is now Central America and lost it to another Revolution against their authority in 1821.
I guess they didn't want to be Mexicans.
It's hilarious Mexicans never b*tch and moan about losing those territories, huh? lol
A lie huh?
What was the lie and who told it?
Mexico started the War and boasted if the U.S. Annexed Texas, they would take Mobile , New Orleans, then Florida and hang the Mexican flag at the Whit House in Washington.
General Taylor had every right to cross the Nueces river and Santa Ana's signature on the Treaty of Velasquez said so.
Mexico attacked and got their arses kicked back across the Rio Grande with their tails between their legs screaming Ohhhhh.....Ohhhhh save us from the mean gringo's.....Ohhhhhh!lol
Sorry, but that is accurate.
It wasn't a "Land Grab", but land that was Up for Grabs!
Yes the Gringo conquered the land just as the Aztecs , Spanish and later the Mexican Government conquered all the northern native tribes in what is now Mexico, killing Yaqui and Tohono O'Odham all the way to Sonora.
Oh, got to go for now.
I know we will talk again....just a guess. lol
