Should we annex Mexico for their own good?

    Is Mexico incapable of correcting the corruption and it's own social issues. Is it time to seriously consider Mexico a true security issue in this hemisphere and take over what they obviously can't handle?

      Because some dumb people think America is what they want and migrate from Mexico to get it, all the Mexicans that are proud to be Mexicans have to become Americans in the end ???
      Are you out of your mind ?!
      I wouldn't like to be American even if they'd pay me ! mad

      Yes to all the above. The only way -- the ONLY way -- there will be peace and stability in Mexico, is if an international peacekeeping force (NATO) goes in and takes over. The U.S. does not need another war on its hands. After the cartels are removed, the international community creates a new government that represents the Mexican people.

          More or less. Except the U.S. will not be the primary player in a rebuilding effort. Again, multinational. Mexico could be turned into a global economic utopia. A sort of renaissance state that acts as a crossroads for global activity of all kinds. Take the best from each country and put it in Mexico. It is possible. All these second generation Mexicans educated here would be the building blocks of a new age for that country.

      So let me get this straight.  You think we should throw all illegals out of the country, but now you want to annex Mexico.  Sorry to be blunt about this, but are you stupid?  Don't we have enough problems in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention domestic stuff, that we don't need to go looking for more trouble.  Ever hear of Pancho Villa.  We sent Pershing to get him and he lead the Punitive Expedition on a merry chase through Mexico.

        If Mexico agreed to the building of a wall, would you advocate this wall being at least as high as Colorado? Afterall, much of the south west of American - where you have the biggest Mexican populations - were in fact once part of that same country.

        If Mexico was to agree to build a wall, you are asking them to mark a boundary which the majority believe would exclude their native lands... at least parts of Texas, parts of California, the whole of New Mexico and the whole of Arizona

        Just a point which I believe is valid. Many would argue that the Mexicans have a right to citizenship in those four states, since it is their native lands. Much in the same way that many Irish Americans were supportive of the I.R.A and their efforts to 'liberate Ireland' from their 'British oppressors'...

        Thanks for the welcome back by the way, just an international perspective on this argument, a lot of Americans involved in that drug trafficking by the way wink

          No problem Ryan!smile Well to take that position you would have to give all of Ireland back and give Wales and Scotland back as well. In fact the first recognized civilized control of Britain was by the Romans so the Italians should get it all.

          Just a wall would be fine, we're not too much for the one world government thing.

    i don't think the USA can afford to go to war with another country. With the way South American sentiment is progressing i think you'll find Mexico will soon be part of a new South American united congress.

    i am always dumbfounded as to the reasons why people of the USA think their own values are holier than thou and everyone else should do as they feel is right.

    The world is changing and the USA no longer has the RIGHT to tell anyone how to run their own country.

    USA should fix their own problems in their own country instead of worrying about everyone else.

        Comments like "ohh the mexicans are coming" is just rediculous. Try and understand that its because of what the USA has done to Mexico that these people are fleeing and trying to find work in the USA.

          That comment is the most insidious nonsense ever created! Most Mexicans are living on $2 a day down there. The government is corrupt and infiltrated by cartels. There is no middle class in Mexico, or scant at best. The drug wars are escalating. If anything, illegals from Mexico are refugees escaping from a totalitarian government that doesn't give a damn about its people. But, of course, blame it on the "ugly American."

                    It would be a wall on the U.S. border between the U.S. and Mexico.

                    I would build another while we are at it on our northern border, between the U.S. and Canada.

The world could handle their own issues then maybe, maybe they would realize we were a friend worth having. But once it's done it should stay done no pleading for help economically or militarily. We could afford health care for working Americans then.

              You would think but no they decided to protect Texas in the 1800's no matter what it took. They are still quite active and still help small communities with additional tools for law enforcement.

    Here is a great idea.  Anyone who wants to ignore the illegal alien problem we have in this country should do what my dad did.  Go to Mexico with a volunteer group and try to help them make things better down there so they don't feel tempted to illegally enter THIS country.  if things were better down there then they could wait and do things legally like past immigrants!

      Thats a great Idea but the wealthy in Mexico are so corrupt you couldn't just leave them to it. I used to hunt in Mexico we could bring guns but no ammo. We brought plenty of ammo and we paid officials for that and to increase bag limits. Every aspect of their sociaty is corrupt in one form or another it's almost hopeless.
