The spoils of war
From MySanAntonio -- A Houston-area legislator is seeking the return, at least temporarily, of the only flag known to have flown at the Alamo in 1836.
State Rep. John Zerwas said the Alamo's Long Barrack Museum would be an ideal place to display the New Orleans Greys flag, which has been housed at the Museo Nacional de Historia in Mexico City.
This is about the stupidest idea I've heard in a while. Mexico kicked our butts at the Alamo and to the victor go the spoils of war. We have no right to ask for it back.
