scarey times

scarey times A scene from Trump's dream !! that may well come back to haunt him. The Mexican Revolution 1910 - 1920 The US was constantly getting involved in the Mexican revolution and had forces deployed in Mexico. In 1916, Pancho Villa and his band of 500 to 1,000 men raided Columbus, New Mexico, burning army barracks and robbing stores. In the United States, Pancho Villa came to represent mindless violence and banditry. 10,000 Troops led by Pershing were sent to capture Pancho but after eleven months they gave up. Then a much larger army again under Pershing's command penetrated as far as Parral, some 400 miles (640 km) south of the border, but Villa was never captured. The campaign consisted primarily of dozens of doughnut skirmishes with small bands of insurgents. There were even clashes with Mexican Army units; the most serious was on 21 June 1916 at the Battle of Carrizal, where a detachment of the 10th Cavalry was nearly destroyed. War would probably have been declared but for the critical situation in Europe. Even so, virtually the entire regular army was involved, and most of the National Guard had been federalized and concentrated on the border before the end of the affair. Normal relations with Mexico were restored eventually by diplomatic negotiation, and the troops were withdrawn from Mexico in February 1917. One hundred years later, President Trump is set to build a wall (and ban the sale of ladders and tunnel building equipment to all Mexicans) Chumps always try to treat the symptoms rather than dealing with the underlying cause. My photo is from an exhibition of revolutionary art that was shown at the British Museum. ...
