Zimmermann Telegram
    The Zimmermann Telegram (or Zimmermann Note or Zimmerman Cable) was a secret diplomatic communication issued from the German Foreign Office in January 1917 that proposed a military alliance between Germany and Mexico in the event of the United States entering World War I against Germany. Mexico would be given Texas, Arizona and New Mexico. The proposal was intercepted and decoded by British intelligence. Revelation of the contents enraged American public opinion, especially after the German Foreign Secretary Arthur Zimmermann publicly admitted the telegram was genuine on March 3, and helped generate support for the United States declaration of war on Germany in April. The decryption was described as the most significant intelligence triumph for Britain during World War I, and one of the earliest occasions on which a piece of signals intelligence influenced world events.

"Our nation's memory is long and our reach is far."
   Fifteen years ago I produced a video, “Conquest of Aztlan” --- (See review in The Social Contract Press.) // (Available from World Net Daily.)
    It makes a very strong case that Mexico is using illegal immigration to reclaim land it lost in the Mexican War that ended with the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
    In 1917, the Zimmerman Telegram revealed a plan by Germany to assist Mexico in reclaiming Texas, Arizona and New Mexico.
    (California wasn't mentioned in the Zimmerman Telegram, but Mexico was able do that job without Germany's help.)
    One hundred years after the Zimmerman Telegram, Germany once again seems to be supporting Mexico's goal of reclaiming lost territory by opposing President Trump's attempt to stop illegal immigration by building a wall on the border.
    In 1997, Ernesto Zedillo, the President of Mexico, said: "I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important --- a very important --- part of it.”
    In 1968, Secretary of State Madeline Albright said: "Our nation's memory is long and our reach is far.”
    The same might be said of Mexico --- and maybe even Germany.
