Can Mexico Sue the United States to Get the Southwest Back?

[¡Ask a Mexican!] Also, why do Mexican girls write online in ALL CAPS?

DEAR MEXICAN: When World War II ended, the Germans and Japanese had to return all territories they had acquired by force. The U.S. acquired most of the West by force from Mexico. Agreed, the U.S. won the war with Mexico, but did that make it right? I do not think so—so why does Mexico not go to the World Court and sue? I know the U.S. won't acquiesce if it were to lose, but at least the taking of Mexican territory would be branded an illegal act. To some, this will sound un-American, but I think it is totally American—it's called righting a wrong. I was born in Alabama, a state that knows a lot about being un-American (remember the Civil War?), and raised in Virginia, another state that knows a lot about being un-American (again, the Civil War), and Washington, D.C., whose citizens have fewer rights than other Americans. My heritage is English-Irish, so the only ax I have to grind is to see to it my country commits as few wrongs as possible.

Bob

DEAR BETO: I like your thinking! Alas, it wouldn't fly—although the Mexican-American War was a blatant, imperial land grab, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was an official document that ended the war. Signed under duress, yes, but nevertheless relatively ironclad. Besides, the United States considers the International Court of Justice a clown court (as you correctly note) whose issued opinions mean mierda if they go against the Stars and Stripes—see 1984's Nicaragua vs. United States, in which the court correctly ruled the United States illegally supported the contras, only to have Reagan consider the decision as meaningful as an air-traffic-controller strike. Finally, why bother with legal systems when demographic reality is doing it for us? Didja hear that former U.S. Census director Steve Murdoch recently studied the population trends of Texas and told the state's House of Representatives' Mexican American Legislative Caucus, "Basically, it's over for Anglos in Texas"? That's the future, folks: the end of the gabacho race, and the Mexican says it's a good thing—not so much for Reconquista purposes, but because that just means more intermarriage will happen and finish our racialist games once and for all. Because nothing stops racism like a hot mamacita or a cute, fecund gabacha.

 

DEAR MEXICAN: I have a few online gal pals. The ones who are Mexican have an affinity for composing mail in ALL CAPS. It doesn't particularly annoy me; I just wondered if there is a cultural significance behind this larger-than-life correspondence style.

Curioso Amarillo

DEAR CURIOUS YELLOW: Because they are LOUD. Funny thing is that the Spanish language generally capitalizes words less often than English, so we can't blame the all-caps on their Mexi side, for once, or for the fact that sOmE wRiTe LiKe ThIs.

 

GOOD MEXICAN OF THE WEEK! Most of you know Lalo Alcaraz, the nationally syndicated cartoonist behind the comic strip La Cucaracha (and if you don't know him, think of Alcaraz as Gary Trudeau meets Aaron McGruder meets the end of a tequila bottle). But this plug is for his Twitter account, one of the better stream-of-consciousness experiments out there. Better yet? Unlike other funnymen, Alcaraz responds to EVERYTHING—especially nasty remarks, which makes him even more chistoso. Follow the cabrón at twitter.com/laloalcaraz, or find him online at pocho.com.

so the spanish (and other european) invaders come to 'mexico' to steal the country's wealth, and destroy the culture and people, and do the same to the north and east. they enslave the local inhabitants and (in california) kill millions with disease and enslave the rest, then, when the mexicans get rid of the bad guys (i.e. the spaniards), 'mexico' thinks that the lands the spaniards invaded, and decimated with disease and slavery, should belong to mexico??? because spain came to california??? and built some missions? a revolution is a revolution, against the oppressors. california was never part of mexico, just spain's ill-gotten gains. the story of what the catholic church did to the california natives is ugly, ugly ugly. if mexican/californians think they have an entitlement to california in some way shape or form the bad karma of spain and the catholic missionaries who destroyed a unique peaceful and magical eden is an eternal shame that those folks are taking on. shame on the church for what they did to the unique native californians, and shame on spain. and shame on those who think mexico should be proud of this 'conquest' of california. it was genocide.

Why would you want to return the Southwest to Mexico? So it can look like the rest of Mexico. The reason all you brown clowns jump the border is to take a productive area and turn it into a s*it hole. Mexicans should thank the US for taking as much land as we did. If we would have stayed in Mexico and kept everything north think how much more nice land you could have to turn into Boyle Heights, Santa Ana, Stanton, Bell, Maywood, South Gate the entire Inland Empire.....etc.

Yep..the United States takes Anglos taxes to pay for the mexican invasion. but alas , Anglos still send their kids to fight wars in the middle east instead of keeping them here and just living.Anglos should be more like mexcians and look out for and defend their own. Mexicans are admirable for that.

Can The USA sue Mexico for, in effect, raising Mexico, for all the illegal immigrant costs for schooling and health, etc.? If Mexico has been put on a pay as they come regimen they would have stopped the illegal immigration themselves instead of fostering it

If the Southwest goes back to Mexico, then a lot of Mexican Americans will be flooding into Oregon, Kansas, and Louisiana within a week! They know which side of the border they want to be on.

Why would anyone want to replicate Mexico? Their future generations will have to emigrate once again. My grandfather immigrated in 1904 and embraced the US. The new breed is different. They loathe the US yet refuse to return to their beloved Mexico...My dad and uncles served in WWII, a cousin in Korea, I served in Vietnam and my son is soon deploying to Afghanistan. We may not always be right, but the US is that light on a hill as President Reagan once said. Steve UnzuetaAmerican of Mexican descent

Germany and Japan "gave" back the stolen land because a third party, the USA, came in and stomped their ass. They didn't GIVE it back. The USA (and allies) forced them.NoW, if say, Brazil (or CHINA !!) with their booming economies someday surpasses the USA in armed and monetary might, maybe WE will be forced to pay reparations and "give" (haha) back land.But by then Mexico will be receiving the land back from themselves, as the demographics of the USA are changing so rapidly. Not necessarily a bad thing, by the way....just different.

The whole of the Americas was taken illegally and based on the Papal Bull of 1493 called the Inter Caetera. http://www.manataka.org/page15... Many Indigenous groups have called on the Vatican and the UN to revoke it in order to start the legal process of re-acquiring tribal lands. But as Mr. Mexican so rightly states, the US will choose to ignore any "body" that would rule against its interests. Currently Manifest Destiny continues throughout Latin America.As Eagle Over Cactus points out below, Mexico has a bad reputation for criminal violence and drug mongering. However, as Mr. Mexican points out, this whole drug mess and highly skilled drug lords is a Monster of the USA's own creation starting after WW2 and at the start of the cold war. They were so afraid of Communism or even an Indigenous reclamation of the hemisphere, they placed puppet Governments, ran guns, trained mercenaries and started the drug trade. One could argue that after Nicaragua and the Contras, that the USA got out of the drug trade...but you'd be wrong. NAFTA has helped a great deal in forwarding the cause of Manifest Destiny by breaking the economic back of Mexico , while at the same time feeding men and resources toward the drug trade (most farmers have to comply at gunpoint and now comply to feed their families) further demonizing Mexico in the eyes of the North. Its only a matter of time before Obama declares Marshall law in Mexico for the good of the Nation. Then after that a long military occupation until all the property in Mexico belongs to multinationals, then Mexico will be a commonwealth like Puerto Rico where labor can still be cheap, safety and manufacturing regulations can be lax and Banks can serve as tax shelters for the rich! WOO HOO AMERICA!

Does anybody notice all these revolutionary mexicans talk a Big game in America about ''mexico this, mexico that''but you wont see them anywhere in Mexico.. Mexicos only a 3 hour car ride from here.. but you wont see guys like gustavo confront the Mexican government. or any protest.. Its funny how Mexicans who stay put in Mexico dont cry foul at all.. they actually get pissed when the immigration bus dropps of chicano druggies and crooks back into Mexico.. if anybody who gets pissed everytime a mexican in america acts up needs to travel to the Tijuana Plaza and watch the immigration buses roll in every hour.. you will see drug addicts and cholos(mexican american mexican gangter) getting dropped off.. but the most entertaining to see is right when they land on the Mexican side of the border, the Mexican police and the Mexican Federals are quick to fuck with them.. people like gustavo wont tell you all that.. YES!! alot of Real Mexicans in Mexico who reside there and have no intentions of hopping north are more racist against mexicans in america than White people here..but guys like gustavo tries to portray its only Whites who hate Mexicans in America.. and another funny thing is people like gustavo say ''brown and proud'' but in Mexico, alot of folks are light skinned or even pale looking and have colored eyes.. I suspect Mexico may be like Asia where the lighter skin folks get better treatment.. thats why in america the illegals are mostly dark skinned because their more than likely to get discriminated in Mexico, but these revolutionary groups gustavo supports will do anything possible to keep your american ears from hearing the facts.. I always notice racist mexicans like gustavo either wear glasses or they look southeast asian or darker than common Mexicans. its the ones with some kind of inferiorty complex... ''they dont like me cause im mexican'' ''they only hire white people'' ''she wont date me cause im mexican'' ''White people think their too good'' ''White people never give me a chance'' etc, etc.

Can we sue Mexico for the damage their methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin have done to our young people? Can we sue Mexico for the billions we spend rescuing, educating, and treating their citizens who arrive without permission? Can we sue Mexico to recoup the billions that are spent fighting their vicious street gangs?

I don't know about CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE, but there is a real EDUCATIONAL SIGNIFICANCE to the fact that many, many Mexicans type in all caps style.

Back many, many years ago, when typewriters became common (mostly imported from NOB), there was no way to put the accent mark required by Spanish on the words typed, SOOOOO…the Mexican Government pragmatically ruled that capital letters did not need to have any accent marks. Kids were taught in school to print in all caps, all government and legal documents were written in all caps (and a darn lot still are) and the Mexican populace became the joke of most of the rest of the Spanish-speaking world for writing such ignorant Spanish.

With the advent of computers, this became a non-issue pretty quickly, and now the schools (¡por fin!) are back to teaching that either upper-case or lower-case letters need the correct accent marks, and the teaching of ONLY printing in all caps is slowly being phased out, bringing México back in line with the rest of the Spanish speaking world. Unfortunately, most governmental documents and legal document are still written in all caps, and folks who grew up in the 60s through the 90s are unlikely to unlearn the old habits. ENTONCES CUANDO USEN EL TECLADO ES MAS FACIL PARA USAR TODOS MAYUSCOLOS Y ¡OLVIDEN LOS TILDES!

I have "researched" a bit of racial realism and just race in general and there seems to be at least in white nationalist racial realist circles some kind of conspiracy theory about "exterminating the white race" or just melting all races together. But as you said gus there really is no better way to end our race problems than everyone being somewhat the same.

Can we sue Gringolandia for the damage their methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin consumption has done to the all people of Mexico, young and old?If it weren't for you fucking degenerates shoving any and all powdery substances up your noses and injecting them into your veins, none of us would be in this mess.Can we sue you pinches gringos putos for the amount of money that immigrant labor saves gabacho consumers every year?Can we sue your sorry bruncle-humping asses for the money we spend fighting your vicious gun dealers?Just thinkin'.

"Can we sue Mexico for the damage their methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin have done to our young people?" No if there was no demand for those things there would be no cartels, maybe i can flip it around on you. Can mexico sue drug addicted Americans who buy from those cartels and feed they're power and are contributing indirectly to the killing thousands of Innocent people in mexico?

"Can we sue Mexico for the billions we spend rescuing, educating, and treating their citizens who arrive without permission?" we do the apposite or sometimes the same to the people in the middle east why not do it here?

"Can we sue Mexico to recoup the billions that are spent fighting their vicious street gangs?" We fight in the middle east also.

Sadly the people (if you're referring to the military, unless you meant you and a bunch of hillbillies) who'd "whip" our butts are probably all minorities of some sort. You make it sound like no Mexican/Hispanic or in general any minority isn't willing to die for their adopted country so your DUMB ASS can have the freedom of speech.
