The 2nd MEXICAN-AMERICAN WAR and Latino-American Rebellion will take place in 2090-2100. I based this conclusion on the analysis of George Friedman, CEO of Strategic Forecasting, Inc. and author of the “The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century” (please see

According to Mr. Friedman’s projections “by 2060, after thirty years of policies encouraging immigration (the U.S. will actually encourage immigration of Mexicans into the country)…areas that had been around 50 percent Mexican will become almost completely Mexican and areas that had been 25 percent Mexican will move to over half…the borderland (Texas, California, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and Utah) will become predominantly Mexican”.

There are many geopolitical factors and triggers that would result in Mexico challenging the U.S. in 2090-2100. I will not spoil it for you, just read Mr. Friedman’s book.

But here are the facts:
