140. Carlos Marx

El reconocido filósofo alemán de ocupó de México en un par de ocasiones. Más edificantes resultaron sus palabras con motivo de la presencia de las flotas británica, española y francesa en Veracruz en 1861. Escribió entonces estas palabras para el  New-York Daily Tribune, publicadas el 23 de noviembre de ese año, en un artículo titulado: The intervention in Mexico.


“The contemplated intervention in Mexico by England, France, and Spain, is, in my opinion, one of the most monstrous enterprises ever chronicled in the annals of international history. It is a contrivance of the true Palmerston make, astounding the uninitiated by an insanity of purpose and an imbecility of the means employed which appear quite incompatible with the known capacity of the old schemer.

It is probable that, among the many irons which, to amuse the French public, Louis Bonaparte is compelled to always keep in the fire, a Mexican Expedition may have figured. It is sure that Spain, whose never overstrong head has been quite turned by her recent cheap successes in Morocco and St. Domingo, dreams of a restoration in Mexico. But, nevertheless, it is certain that the French plan was far from being matured, and that both France and Spain strove hard against a joint expedition to Mexico under English leadership [..].
