    I remember they all died. Perhaps Sam Houston should have considered a mobile defense, ambushing and disrupting transport and supply lines, instead of defending a fixed position.

    But then again, it was a great morale booster, "Remember the Alamo Defenders." And Houston went on to smash Santa Anna, so it evens out right?

    No.

    Of course not.

    Mexico is Mexico.

    It's full of Mexicans.

    The United States of America is "America".

    It's full of Mexicans.

    More importantly, we need to put a halt to Mexico's efforts to make ours theirs.

    Well, actually, the reason we didn't take Mexico in the Mexican American War is because we simply didn't want it. We never wanted it, we don't want it now.

    Mexico started a war with the US after the annexation of Texas. We had already had offers to Mexico for the direct purchase of the land we later bought from Mexico at the end of the Mexican American War.

    However,

    1) Mexico started the war.
    2) We paid for the land taken, and we only bought what we'd already offered to buy.

    3) No one in the English Speaking US wanted to annex all of Spanish speaking Mexico. Given that the annexation of all of Mexico would have been a unique event, the Missouri Compromise would have been strained or set aside for the new Mexican territories, if we'd annexed Mexico.

    4) Frankly, the last thing the Americans would have wanted is the establishment of an empire with subjugated people to perpetually cause propblems. The United States STILL isn't an empire.

    Umm. So we bring them in and do you know how much it would frigging cost to make them to the level of what you are talking about? Not to mention the danger to us and the troops that would be killed. There would be resistance and all kinds of problems.

    No disrespect but this is a bad and stupid idea.

    I don't think they knew it was going to be a fixed position at the time . that is just all they had to seek shelter in, when the Mexicans invaded.----today, they just don't wear uniforms. But ole Sam paid them back in spades.
