Probably because America was focusing on expanding westward " from sea to shining sea". To secure the pacific coast from foriegn invasions. Lewis and Clark expedition gave the america a heads up about another coast and vast lands. Fews years later, The Louisiana purchase ( which mexico should blame on france for causing the mexican-american war in the the future) which allowed the u.s to expand westward to then mexican's held state or territory Tejas/Texas. America got greedy and started to settle In texas which eventually sparked a war. After the war with America's victory, treat of Hildalgo was made where mexico gave territories from mexico to california and inlands (nevada and probably parts or colorado) to the U.S.
Reason that was might be because the U.S at that time told the Mexicans that they didnt want to conquer them, they were just trying to extend their border to the pacific coast.
Nah, breh. I don’t think you know what you’re talking about.
Hold up, Canada beat us up?
Honestly the British empire is much more impressive to me bc of the competition and geographical distances involved.
Spain was a world power back then. Central America and the Caribbean were the bread baskets of the New World and they controlled it. The U.S. was a bunch of rebels/former Brits/expatriates/criminals. They barely won the American Revolution. Imagine a group of people on Mars winning a war against Earth for their freedom. We would probably just let them go because it would cost too much to keep fighting, not because we couldn’t beat them if we really wanted. That’s why England did it. Keeping that in mind, there was no way we were going to fight another dominant power and win. We didn’t become a real threat globally until the 1900s.
Yea your right as far as ethnicity the modern Britons are Germanic, the ancient ones in contact with Rome were Celtic. In fact King Arthur was from Wales not England, but I still feel like England picked up game from Rome. Scotland didn't have any Roman influence, and look at the difference between Scotland and England in the history of the world, even tho imo the Scots are more rugged than the English. The English picked up the art of diplomacy and warfare from the Romans and Vikings and mixed that shyt, that's why they're never gonna fall out of the top 5 no matter what happens
Exactly the parts we took from Mexico were relatively sparsely populated so not much resistance. Imagine having to leave a huge occupying force in mexico city or Monterrey with millions of ppl not just some scattered cities and ranches
You fukkers get oil natural gas metals and other mineral from us. Plus we have the most fresh water in the world. What does America have worth invading for. McDonalds.
Shows what you know. Our idiot Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sold us out to China and now we do what they tell us to do.
I've always heard about it but never took interest in actually reading about. So when did this war happen.
We shake our head everyday over this. Norway used their oil reserves the right way and although it's freezing over there their peeps don't have much to worry about when it comes to financial security. Their country's pension is funded by their oil.
We have have oil/gas/minerals too and can get them from other (warmer) countries. We have the Great Lakes for fresh water and aquifers.
Man, go listen to Alanis Morisset and get your country’s GDP up before throwing shots. Get your military up too. Y’all even in the top 20???
