Today -100: March 9, 1911: Of maneuvers and interventions


The British Foreign Office says they did not ask the US to intervene in Mexico to protect British nationals and business interests, as rumors have been claiming.

NYT: “Administration and War Department officials frankly admitted to-day that the ‘manoeuvres’ explanation of the sudden mobilization of an army division in Texas and Southern California strains credulity for acceptance, and then calmly repeated it and declared that it is the real explanation.”

Neither the Mexican government nor the insurrectos want American intervention. In case you were wondering.
