I really doubt the common Mexican would rise up at the behest of the government since they don't trust Mexico's severely corrupt leaders

Come on man, Mexicans will castrate any shit-stain of politician that would try to start a war against the USA.

Seriously:

  • Mexican politicians are disliked by the entire population.

  • Mexican army stands 0 chance to even annoy the US army, even the most obtuse of them should know this.

  • Mexican economy depends on US from several points of view. They also know this.

They have absolutely nothing to win and everything to lose.

Now, on the other hand, if Mexico were to fall, I would be worried. The biggest threat to America doesn't come from their army but from the drug cartels. If the cartels end in war with America, you will have a smarter, better funded ISIS on your border and already inside your borders. You may win that war too, but it will be painful... extremely painful.

You'd think a journalist would know who the president of the country they're writing about is. Vicente Fox (not Vincente) was president ten years ago. The actual president right now is Enrique Peña Nieto.

Then again, Zero Hedge is a rag, so I don't know why expected anything better.

The title is very misleading, but the article does repeatedly mention that he is the former president.

That's generally the goal. A misleading title gets people who are too lazy to read the whole thing riled up and spreads false or sensational information, but the article can't actually be accused of spreading false information, because the body of the piece corrects whatever the title misled on. It's a method of information manipulation.

Not to mention he is talking about a trade war, not a hot war.

Because they write articles like these; click bait rubbish with false information.

Vicente Fox is an ex-president of Mexico and has even less influence than Bill Clinton does because he doesn't have a wife as a politician.

Like Breitbart, they write very openly biased posts and don't even pretend to be journalists

Like Breitbart, however, they're willing to address things the MSM wont, and generally at least give enough information to find out what actually happened minus their spin.

Hahahaha, Mexico is going to declare war? Against the United States, headed by Trump?

Hahahaha, that ugly Mexican has a future career in stand up, no doubt about it. That was some seriously funny shit.

"Don’t play around with us, we can jump walls, we can swim rivers, & we can defend ourselves."

Hahahaha, oh man, stop, please. First. You can 'jump walls and swim rivers" - directly saying "no, we will not stop trying to flood your country with illegal immigrants if you take open and direct approaches to stopping us." Then, "we can defend ourselves."

Defend. Defend from what, us putting up a fucking wall to keep you and yours in your own fucking yard?

Defend, from an invasion? No one's invading Mexico, no one wants it. Not even Mexicans want Mexico.

Defend. Thinly veiled hint at, what, an armed ... response? To us? Building a wall on our own land to keep you on yours?

This fucking guy is downright hilarious. Like some middle school edgelord chest-puffing after being called fat. Downright funny.

Mexican heroin is killing my cousins. The drugs pouring over the border are poisoning many of our families. Mexico could stop it if they wanted to, but they are all paid off by the cartels, it's disgraceful.

Mexico would be a tangible enemy--so many American lives are hurt by Mexico each and every day. In Iraq, many of us didn't understand how we were helping American citizens by being over there--the Iraqis didn't want us there, our families wanted us back to raise our children, our leaders didn't seem to put much effort in waging a war to win. Most of the time we were just defending the camp where we were staying, awaiting orders which never came.

If Mexico declares war on the United States, they will see the full fury and passion of the American military, the likes of which haven't been seen since Pearl Harbor. We will feel like we are actually protecting our families--the drugs, the cartels, the losers they dump across our borders everyday--we will stop it all. We will turn Mexico into a wasteland.

Bring it on Mexico. You've destroyed our country, poisoned our youth, taken our jobs and companies, and now you want to wage a war? You will re-ignite the fighting spirit of our American military and we will knock the shit out of you.

I agree with the majority of your sentiment, but I feel it's misguided to a certain degree.

Our own CIA is complicit with much of this, and other agencies, etc. allow this to happen. We gotta clean up our own backyard, if nothing else as a matter of principle and necessity.

America has every right to enforce it's borders.

Also, the Mexican president should learn to show some fucking respect when referring to US Presidential candidates and US border laws.
