I am no fan of the Mexican government, but the flag is a legitimate spoil of war in a battle they were victorious in. It is currently more representative of the Mexican soldiers who died to obtain it than it is symbolic for us. It is ok to ask them kindly for it, but pretty dismissive to hound them about it.

Texas gets the flag, Mexico gets Texas.

We keep Austin.

I'm good with this.

Why is this stupid? We're allies now, and they think the flag isn't being properly cared for. Let Texas display it, if they really want to.

Personally, I think it would be a bit like proudly wearing a t shirt from the World Series your team DIDN'T win, but if they want it, let them ask for it.

If I were Mexico, I'd build a huge flagpole just a few feet away from my side of the border wall and fly the hell out of it.

The defeat at the Alamo led to the Texas army bravely slaughtering the Mexican's in their sleep. So it's more like losing one game of the series and then sneaking into your opponents locker room and killing them all while they shower.

I told them that you rubbed your balls all over the president's chair before `exiling' it to the London museum.

And?

You're right - they don't want it back.

How about we give Texas to Mexico instead?

We'll trade Texas for the rest of Baja California, I'll take more coastline over Texas any day of the week.

There's some nice coastline down that way.

What about all that Manifest Destiny crap that led to the Texas Annexation?

Yeah Texas, just crawl over the border, and grab it. I'm sure nobody will shoot you, and burn your body in an oil drum.

A friend told me about seeing the flag in the basement of the national museum, in Mexico City. A few months later, Texas made an inquiry, asking if they had it and might return it, and Mexico's offical reply was "It's Missing".

Combine this with the recently expressed urge of Texas conservatives to secede...

It's already happening, and by 2030 they will 'own' about 60% of the Texan population.

Hell, The Alamo itself isn't being properly cared for.
 
2011-03-14 04:57:01 PM  
Mexico should sell it to Texas on an infomercial. And if you order this authentic historical Alamo flag now... for thee easy payments of 45.99... we'll send you an additional 1 million Mexican day-laborers free of cost. Our operators are standing by ese.
 
2011-03-14 04:58:10 PM  
I wonder if they've checked the basement of the Alamo.

I've got no problem with the government trying to get the flag back. Or offering to pay for the preservation of the flag. Or whatever. But it belongs to Mexico now, and they're free to do with it whatever they wish.

80% of Texas' population was actually American, so if you believe that Kosovo, Bosnia, Eritrea, etc deserved independence, then so did Texas. The US actually rejected Texas' first attempts to join the union.

Mexico's claim on what's now the western US was inherited from the conquests of imperial Spain anyway. Most of the thin population were Indians either enserfed or nomads not under Mexico's control. They neither fought for Mexico, nor left when Mexico lost the land.
 
2011-03-14 05:02:46 PM  
Didn't anybody tell the Texans to MAKE history, not repeat it?

Then again, their idea of driving cars the elite way, consists of consecutive left turns...
 
2011-03-14 05:03:22 PM  
Hey, the Mexicans got that flag, but Texans got to keep their slaves.

It was a win-win.

Seriously, though, Texas fought to keep slaves in two separate wars, 25 years apart. Historical fact.

They only had 3 cars.

They should just drive by the flag really slowly in a pickup truck filled with lawn maintenance equipment... like everything else in Mexico, it'll probably jump in the back

Mexico's gonna tell Texas to fark off, as well they should.

Texas were traitors during the Texas Revolution, they were traitors in 1861 during the Civil War, and their governor likes to talk about secession again.
