While the United States referred to the conflict with Mexico as the Mexican War, Mexicans called the war the North American Invasion.
What do these different names suggest about each country's perspective on the war?


is it because president polk wanted more from mexico than texas, he wanted the entire territory stretching from texas to the pacific. and when mexico didn't consider his offer, (he offered 30 million for new mexico and california), he sent american troopsinto the disputed area of southern texas. they crossed the Nueces in March and set up camp near the Rio Grande and mexico considered this advance an invasion of mexican territory and prepared to take action.
