Why did the United States become involved in Mexico's civil war? Select all that apply.
1)Relations had weakened between the United States and the new government.
2)Mexico was unable to end the war without U.S. intervention.
3)The United States provided troops to support the leader Wilson preferred.
4)Mexican soldiers arrested a group of American sailors.

I know for sure that number 4 is one of the answers, but this question has two right answers. I think that the other right answer is either 3 or 1, but I'm not sure. Is it 3? However, that's more of a course of action, and not a reason...

  1. Yes, the sailors were involved, but Woodrow Wilson's actual motivation was his desire to overthrow Huerta, whom he refused to recognize as Mexico's leader. Answer 3 is closest to that.
