Jendrian, you do realize that the revolution started against Porfirio Diaz. hell the reason that he was popular was because he fought in the war to kick them out. The "French Revolution" happened over a hundred years b4 the mexican one.
I said that you won't hear Mexicans talking BAD about Diaz.
I never said the US financed or finished the war, instigated - yea.
You sound like one of those Mexican`s whose "proud to be aztec" when chances are, the aztecs either sacrificed your ancestors, or your ancestors joined the Spanish against the Aztecs. I bet that you also believe the lie that Mexico never had slaves.
I`m trying to get you out of your fantasy world. Just suck up your pride and try to take a step out

@Klaxor: oh my god, how many times do I have to repeat to you that I have never said, nor ever implied that the revolution was free from foreign involvement, much less from the US.
Geez, you know what, whatever, believe whatever you want. I'm sure in your history classes Porfirio Diaz was just a footnote (you said he`s not talked about anymore, seriously?)
I`m sure the fact that Porfirio Diaz was a fan of Napoleon and kept on copying both their methods and architecture is something you missed. It`s not like it`s immediately visible every time you visit Mexico City.
You keep saying you`re not trying to claim the mexican revolution, just stating over and over that the US instigated, financed and finished it.
But you know what, whatever, live in your fantasy world.
