PLEASE READ MIGHT CHANGE PERSPECTIVE!!!!!

I BELIEVE SO 100%.
Even though they gave mexico 15 mil it was more like compensation.
the u.s.a invaded mexico even went to mexico city and to california and new mexico. they demanded the land and on the way those drunken bastards killed women and children who nothing to do with their greediness. the people who believe mexican land wasnt stolen need to look at it through a point of view which hits more closer to home. (no pun intended)

a group of people make an offer of 30,000,000 on your home. you politley turn it down. but you welcome the people to live in your homeand drink the water and eat the food. Driven by complete selfishness they then invade your house while you were in the kitchen. one unit would climb on the roof with 25 and send the other 25 through you basement/ or garage. they succesfully take over the house and put their flag on top claiming it as theirs. but they get drunk and kill your wife and or children/ and or mom/ and or dad/. they then sit your ass down on the kitchen table get a post-it and you two develop a treaty. they give you half of your homes worth(15,000,000)(polk first offered 30 million) and kick you out into your backyard. and then a little while later they find out that theyre is oil (black gold) in the front yard. then in the future land values soar. and the area you once called home is the home of some of the wealthiest people in the world.

US annexes Texas. They station troops on the Texan side of the Rio Grande. Mexico gets mad because they believed that the Texan border was farther North, so they invade.

It was Mexico’s fault.

  1. Its a lot more complicated than what you say. The United States annexed Texas, and because the border of Texas was in dispute, war broke out. Polk wanted California and New Mexico anyway, but the fact is that it was not stolen, more rather than won in war. The territory was going to be lost by Mexico to someone, they could not control it. If the United States did not take it Britain would have taken it. Britain, prior to the Mexican war, was actually more worried about American influence than Mexican influence in California.

  2. VAN 7 has it right, Mexican military forces were (repeatedly) on U.S. soil. After many many warnings the U.S. declares war on Mexico. Mexico loses and as a part of the treaty of surrender Mexico cedes all of the states in your list to the U.S. Perhaps you should read up a little on the history of the U.S. and Mexico before you start to make erroneous statements.

  3. The skewed perspctives lay in revisionist history…
    Spain had little or no interest in Texas per se until the French established a colony there…
    Spain began colonizing Texas in the 1720’s but pretty much gave up by 1755…
    When Mexico gained independence, they sold colonization rights in Texas to encourage settlement…
    Texas as a northern state of Mexico was colonized by Anglos who assimilated under the Mexican Constitution of 1824…
    Santa Anna took power as dictator of Mexico and threw out the 1824 Constitution…
    The Texicans revolted aginst Santa Anna’s control and fought to re-establish the 1824 Constitution, not for independence…
    It became clear that independence was the only option and the Texicans formed a Republic….
    With Santa Anna as his prisoner on the San Jacinto Battlefield, Sam Houston dictated the boundries of Texas as the Rio Grande (Rio Bravo) to its source…then north into Wyoming…east and back south across the Oklahoma Panhandle to the Red River…east to Louisianna and south to the Sabine river and on to the Gulf…
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Territorial_evolution_of_the_United_States#1840s
    Santa Anna quelled revolutions in other Mexican states…
    There was much saber rattling and threats of attacks on Texas…
    Texas was annexed in 1845…
    As one of the United States of America, Texas was invaded by Mexico…
    The United States Army reciprocated with an invasion of Mexico….
    The outcome of the Mexican War included the Gasden purchase and the Mexican Cession of 1851 tranferring lands to the United States and establishing the current US-Mexican border…
    Stolen from Mexico?…no wait…Mexico stole it from Spain…no wait…Spain stole it from the Indians…no wait…the Athapaskins stole it from the Uto-Aztecans…no wait…

    Well, hell…I guess the American Revolutionists were wrong in overthrowing the tyranny of England, too! It was stolen from England! Give it back!
