As I have posted before, if the U.S. with the best military and nuclear weapons and Latin America, except for Mexico which was neutral, with the 2nd best military with nuclear weapons were enemies, and Mexico was asked to join the Latin American countries and they were thinking about it. If our enemy had a 1,954 mile border with us and had invaded us numerous times, what would we do?
