Well, I understand that. My parents are Mexican. I was born here and
raised here. I'm American. My mother was pretty surprised that I had
no problem telling her that, if Mexico and the U.S. got into a war
(don't tell me how one-sided that would be, I know), I would be on the
U.S. side. Just because *she* has huge loyalties to her mother country
doesn't mean I would, too. Now, if the U.S. started it and was in the
wrong, then I'd try to stay out of it completely.

Alfred.
