Santa Anna

Posted by dnsom on December 30, 2008

From my conversation with some Mexicans, I was made to understand that Mexicans hate Santa Anna because he sold their land to the USA. I think that if these Mexicans understood the concept of “manifest destiny” in the tenets of the Americans, they (the Mexicans) would not be so harsh on Santa Anna. After all, he could not do much to stop the Americans from getting the land. Not even when he “tricked his foreign masters by rousing the country against them” was he succcessful in stopping the Americans from getting it. I think the Mexicans should rather be glad that Santa Anna made the wise decision to sell off those parts of the country as he did because the situation could have been worst today.
