The United States invasion of Mexico was a military operation perpetrated against the United Mexican States by the United States of America in order to secure the supply of crude oil from the country. It was the culmination of a year-long campaign of pressure that began with economic sanctions, intended to destabilize the country. The American military ultimately seized the oil refineries and infrastructure, ensuring that it would continue supplying the U.S. with crude oil - at Mexico's expense.[1]


The United States invasion of Mexico is mentioned only in the Fallout Bible.


  1. Fallout Bible 0: "2051 Seeking to protect business interests and their oil supply, the United States begins to exert increasing pressure on Mexico, citing the political instability and pollution stemming from Mexico as a threat to the United States. Various economic sanctions serve to destabilize Mexico, and the United States military enters Mexico to keep the oil refineries running and making sure oil and fuel continue to make their way north across the border... at Mexico's expense."
