    What if Mexico agreed to Germany's terms in the Zimmerman Note and attempted to invade America? I think it would have forced America into World War 1 quicker, but of course Mexico would get owned. Then we would liberate Mexico and install a friendly government (more make them a territory/state). What do you think would have happened?

    Mexico could not of attacked the USA because they were to weak and corrupt.

    Nothing would of happened because nothing did happen because Mexico could do nothing.

    I am pretty sure Mexico would have been easily defeated. I mean, what major allies did they have, that we would not have already been fighting? They were not exactly another Germany, or even another Bulgaria. I mean, yes, it would have taken up some of the US's power to fight them, but not enough to stop the victory of the Allies. I really believe that Mexico would have been defeated hands down, and probably split into several smaller states or territories belonging to the US.

    Mexico would've lost and the United States would have made them sign a very nasty treaty for them.

    I'm not even sure Mexico had finished putting down the civil war by then.


    Bear in mind, in the summer the US Army advanced 300 miles into Mexico between March 1916 and February 1917 with no serious trouble. And the Carranza government was not in very good control of the border areas anyway.

    The whole Zimmerman thing stank at best. The German army couldn't have reached Mexico because the German Navy was bottled up at the battle of Jutland.
