    New spin on old debate for Latinos: Stickers advocate "U.S. Out of Aztlan"
    The slogan conjures images from the 1960s, but the creators of a new campaign say they're aiming to launch a new discussion over land, democracy and America's honoring of treaties.
    Hosts of the Latino-issues radio show Sexto Sol, which airs on Houston's Pacifica affiliate KPFT, are sending out vinyl stickers around the country, bearing the phrase "U.S. Out of Aztlan."
    But Aztlan isn't some far-off Middle Eastern land; in the lore of the Chicano civil rights movement, Aztlan refers to the Southwestern United States, land taken over by the United States after the Mexican-American War of 1846.
    The idea is more than just distributing insurrectionary rhetoric, but to open up a debate over American policy, Latino civil rights and immigration.
    "Last year, the United States celebrated the 155th anniversary of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, but today the agreements forged to protect Mexicans' ancestral and land rights have been largely forgotten," explains Sexto Sol co-host Ernesto Aguilar. "Mexico lost two-fifths of its land and America took a huge section of the Southwest, changing geography and history forever."
    The U.S.-Mexico War, after which the Treaty of Guadalupe Hildago was signed, brings up one of the more sordid episodes in American history.
    When Texas was part of Mexico, the United States made attempts to purchase the land. By 1827, President John Quincy Adams offered to buy Texas from Mexico for $1 million, an offer that Mexico rejected. Andrew Jackson tried again in 1829, offering $5 million, but Mexico still refused to sell the land.
    By the fall of 1835, a faction of settlers in Texas were at war with Mexico, claiming they constituted an independent country. The same settlers declared independence from Mexico on March 2, 1836, declaring a boundary at the Rio Grande. Although settlers had lost the Battle of the Alamo the previous year, with American backing, they scored a surprise victory over the Mexican army at the Battle of San Jacinto. Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna was taken prisoner, and signed the Treaty of Velasco, granting Texas independence and recognizing the Rio Grande as the boundary between Texas and Mexico. As soon as he was released, however, Santa Anna, who was also President, repudiated the treaty.
    Later, the United States formally annexed Texas, and went to war with Mexico over the state. In the end, the United States seized more than 525,000 square miles of land that would become the states of New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado and part of Wyoming. America also took complete control of what is now Texas.
    "In the process, what people conceive of in terms of borders, immigration, justice and the rule of law and principle have been shaped by very fundamental shirking of international law as well as injustice," Aguilar adds. "For the ancestors of Mexicans to whom the Southwest belonged, we didn't cross the borders, the borders crossed us."
    The weekly radio show airs on Pacifica, a 50-year-old radio network known to promote dissident viewpoints. Stickers are being sent out free to anyone .

    Will Mexicans cheer 'Osama' again?
    U.S. soccer team to play for Olympic spot in Guadalajara

    Things could get ugly in Guadalajara tomorrow when the U.S. soccer team plays Mexico for Olympic qualification.
    Last Thursday, when the U.S. played Canada in a qualifying round in Zapopan before 1,500 Mexicans, the crowd hooted "The Star-Spangled Banner," it booed U.S. goals. And it chanted "Osama! Osama! Osama" as the American players left the field with a 2-0 victory.
    Tomorrow, 60,000 fans are expected to watch the game that will determine which team goes to Athens.
    The Mexicans are hoping for revenge. The U.S. team knocked Mexico out of the World Cup in 2002.
    The Guadalajara police are already mobilizing to control highly charged soccer fans and to protect U.S. team players in case things get out of hand.

      More proof that we can not trust our "friends". With 10,000 nuclear weapons, the United States would command more respect if we periodically launched a handful of them around the world. It would assure us of our capability, reduce the surplus population in many of these countries,send a clear message to all people opposed to Freedom and keep our enemies in check.
