maybe it's just me but I'd like to have my back covered.

Very good point. I totaly agree.

Because it isn't in a position to contribute shit! Let them take care of the corruption and let them begin to tax the super-wealthy first. Many internal problems need to be fixed.

Contribute oil? Maybe Mexico should lower it's prices in the country first so the average joe can go to work. A gallon of gas is more than a gallon in California, price wise.

wow i see everyone has their own opinions on this one. i think all wars are stupid and USA always butts their nose where it dont belong i agree on that and i also agree mexico has alot to deal with in their own country but all i was saying is if usa were to ask for their help i feel they shouldnt even think twice about it and lend a hand. i agree the immigration status is all fucked up but when usa askes for favors when needed i feel they should help, not only mexico either. im not putting my raza down but just like any other race there are ones who fuk it up for the ones who do right.

Did you mean the average JOSE? Sorry I couldn't help myself.

Anyways I agree with what some of you said about Mexico needing to fix it's own internal problems. This war is about power nothing more, nothing less in my opinion.

Otra vez le cage. LOL.

Just the idea of even considering Mexico to help out is absurd and foolish. IMO!
Talk about placing the noose arounds one neck willingly.

someone mentioned about us latinos who fight not comin home as heroes but its the whites that do..and honeslty i dont give a f*ck about comin home a hero..i dont need no big parade or nothin..my family was there when our aircraft landed in the states and those were the only people who i cared about being there and knowing what i have done..its is very tru that mexico has its own problems as does the u.s...without all the detail lets say (god forbid) someone declared war on mexico..or lets speak in general,if a country was in trouble i would hope they would have allies they could call upon..but if they never helped anyone then would you expect anyone to ome to their aid?..i mean im not sayin mexico should send thousands and thousand of troops or nothin jus assist a lil..like when i was out there they had koreans but they were there for humanitarian purposes only..and thats great cuz they can handle that and that will free up more of our bodies that can fight..and i met troops form el salvador who werent in the immediate frony lines but were doin their part in helpin out with security..ive heard someone say this is a whitemans war and personally think this is a war thats the u.s.a. is involved in and the u.s.a. is where my parents have lived their life and where my daughter will live hers..if i wont fight for it who will?..if my boys and i take out one insurgent then thats one less person that could cause harm..who knows,maybe that one was the one up next to pull the next 9/11 plan?..what if those planes hit a building in your town with your loved ones in them?..would you think differently?..then you argue the fact that iraq had nothin to do with that,so be it..would you have rather sit back and wait for somethin to happen again for us to react when it is too late?..would people rather have waited for saddaam to drop a bomb and kill our people to say,okay yeah now we should do somethin?..

I understand what you feel and why you feel you need to fight.
But i also believe that even though your heart is in the right place, i doubt its in the right position to make such claims.

Many other nations harbor more dangerous weapons then iraq, and many other nations pose more of an immediate threat then iraq, and many other nations harbor more dangerous terrorists then Iraq. Why so did we invade iraq?

I would be 100% in agreement with you if in fact we had fought against an immediate threat, or a nation with vocal and public threats toward our nation. But Iraq did non of that.

ahhhhh! ppl why so much hate against a country in which you live in? i is the us of a a perfect country? no. is it better than ole mexico? yes. otherwise our ancestors would not have crossed the waters thru the deserts into this great country. we are blessed that we don't live like others around the world where milk and bread is as high as our fuel prices be careful of what you want. as for ole mexico fighting in a war i think so in the sense that they come thru the borders south of here to invade our security; maybe they should tighten up their security, but hell they can't even stop the drugs from flowing in mexico is corrupt so no they should not enter the war they might sell out and then we'd all be in trouble. gottal love the red white and blue.

Um, they crossed the waters into this continent. the country was not yet established. They buthered your ancestors (assuming you have some mexican in you) in order to claim the land as their own.

Yes, but lets not forget that these drugs are U.S bound my friend. And read the top to learn the truth about who invaded who.

Im assuming your chicano too, and if you are, then there is no bigger selling out then yourself my friend.

And nobody ever said anything about hating this country. The truth of the matter is that the war agains Iraq is wrong. Disagreeing with a few greedy politicians does NOT make me a traitor.
If you fight for our freedom, and then you lash at me for expressing my disagreement thru this freedom, then why fight at all?

The mighty USA needing help from Mexico, what a concept.........Why should mexico my motherland send "troops" to iraq? So they can be treated like caca over there too. It's bad enough that immigrants have to come up to the USA to work heavy labor jobs and be treated like shit. In a recent article of OYE Mag I read that some of these workers get 50 measley dollars for 8 hours of work!!!!! These jornaleros are beaten if they complain they are not paid till weeks later. One jornalero was quoted as saying that he asked for water and a prick ass cop told him to drink out of the toilets. So Mexico sends over troops what will they be doing fighting the majority of the war. But mostly LABOR. To say that we need as many allies we can get........The pinche US has a hard time keeping allies. I see the military using these mexicans as they did with the black in vietnam. Anyway,Who are we to think we can go into someone elses home and open the fridge and rearrange the furniture, unless there is some profit in thier home (ie.OIL). I think that per our own statute that is called burglary.

Mexico does have it's own issues to deal with. how would the US respond to Mexico requesting assistance to fight a war against someone? Hell the US doesnt give a shit about no except itsself.

Before some jerk goes off saying "well leave". I love my country just as I love my own brother but Im not going to support my brother if he is commiting wrong.

how am i selling out jsut cause what i want for my family is something better than what i had? i believe that is what all immigrants wanted was something better than what they had for their family the mexican goverment is corrupted sure we have some here but i'd rather live here and hope that improvement derives for our children cause if you think things have not improved throughout the years you my 'friend' are blinded by the hatred in your own heart. we at least agree that mexico should not enter the war so lets just leave at that. God Bless you.

Its one thing to acknowledge the fact that the U.S is richer, more powerful and provides better opportunities for people to work and earn wealth. But you cant shove to the side the history of which you derive from. No matter how much you may like and dapt to a more materialistic sorrounding, you cant hide the color of your face or the origin of your blood.

I love this country too, but that will never change who I am inside and where my cutural heritage began.

most of this country belonged to the mexicans? no, it belonged to my ppl until colombo sailed under the spainiard flag over here.

mexico is rich also my 'friend' only one difference the government. here you have different levels of society where in mexico there is only the elite and the poor then of course you have 'el indio'.

what can one do for his ppl?
educate them i'd say not fill their minds with hate.

some even brown ppl would like to keep their minds closed to elevate themselves.
another thing i seem to agree with u is that one's culture comes from within the values
placed by our fathers not a society.

one last thing i have to say is that i don't look to man for my answers nor i look
in him for help. men have many imperfections such as you and i. i look to
God in my time of need and now the world in this crisis in iraq needs to look to our heavenly father for tranquility.

Peace be with you and yours
love is the answer and love is found in Christ.
God bless you all.

Thanks for pointing out that the military does concetrate more on the urban areas..........easy recruitment.
