Issues that were at play in August 1914 -

Mexico:
1. US occupation of Veracruz
2. Huerta attempting to get back into power (in OTL, seeking to do so with German support)
3. British Admiralty interest in Mexico as an oil source
4. The rest of the Mexican Revolution cast of characters, all seeking recognition of the U.S., which was being persnickety about recognizing a Mexican government

USA:
1. the economy (no war disruption, but no stimulation by war orders as in OTL)
2. Wilson's domestic reform agenda
3. Don't know if women's suffrage or prohibition were coming to a boil yet.
