Mexico, traditionally a land of revolution and bandits, and the United States, traditionally a land of democracy and wealth, have for many years presented mutual problems. This situation exists because the people of the United States do not understand their Mexican neighbors, nor do the people of Mexico understand their American neighbors. A small group of scientific men in the United States understand and know the Mexican people; a still smaller group of Mexicans understand the American people. Probably politicians, newspaper men, and financiers, because of personal interests, are not to be found in this group; President Wilson may have had this understanding. He may have understood the Mexican people and their revolution, and for that reason he may have adopted his policy of watchful waiting which allowed Mexico the time necessary to work out her problems.
