The Zimmermann Telegram … Um, no, we are not attacking the USA

During World War I, the Germans attempted to ally with the Mexican government to attack the US.  In the Zimmermann Telegram from the German Foreign Secretary, the Germans proposed assisting the Mexicans in the re-conquest of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.  The then President of Mexico did not think that attacking the United States was a particularly good idea, and declined the invitation.  (Image from Wikimedia Commons shows a demonic Germany directing Mexico to attack the US.)
