    The Zimmerman telegram showed the US that Germany was willing to have Mexico attack us to get California and Texas back.

    We also didn't like Germany sinking the Lusitania with its submarines.

    The Germans were shipping contraband in their U-boats in violation of the Sussex pledge, which prohibited unrestricted sub warfare between nocombatants. In 1912, the British retaliated by sinking the Lusitania and then taunted the Germans by sending them a message bragging about it, the infamous Zimmermann telegram.

    Good luck with your studies
