How does France replenish troops, how does France resupply, how does France keep secure the supply lines from Veracruz up into the American Southwest? Can their landed troops simultaneously keep control of Mexico and launch a land war?
Sounds like some other folks were spoiling for a right, and that they were using the American flag to do so. I think the school was right to stop such displays before the situation become violent. Just because you're using an American, or Mexican flag, to incite violence doesn't mean you're untouchable.On Cinco de Mayo in 2009, a year before the events relevant to this appeal, there was an altercation on campus between a group of predominantly Caucasian students and a group of Mexican students. The groups exchanged profanities and threats. Some students hung a makeshift American flag on one of the trees on campus, and as they did, the group of Caucasian students began clapping and chanting “USA.” A group of Mexican students had been walking around with the Mexican flag, and in response to the white students’ flag-raising, one Mexican student shouted “f*** them white boys, f*** them white boys.” When Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez told the student to stop using profane language, the student said, “But Rodriguez, they are racist. They are being racist. F*** them white boys. Let’s f*** them up.” Rodriguez removed the student from the area….
So yeah, IF the French had a descent army on the Continent then things might look different today. But history shows us that the French didn't have a descent army on the continent.
IF the French had the kind of army capable of taking and holding ground in the face of the Union Army then... that French army would have crushed Juarez. That French Army is fictitious.
