As things heat up, I'm wondering how things will change here. Hard to imagine and worrisome.

Fortunately, Mexico doesn't tend to get involved in wars that do not directly affect them.

I missed the memo. I don't see WW3 coming. Regional wars, yes.

And some don't tune in until it's too late. The PBS News Hour isn't considered a conspiracy channel. Countries are telling their people to get out of Russia and Ukraine NOW. In 24 to 48 hours. If they don't they may not be able to get out.
That's not conspiracy, that's fact.

I agree with you that Russia v. Ukraine is a very real possibility. But I disagree with you that this will escalate to WW3. Nor do I see it impacting Mexico. Russia is not a major trading partner of MX; Ukraine even less so (if at all).

Interesting historical summary of Mexico: https://www.britannica.com/place/Mexico/Pena-Nieto-and-the-return-of-PRI-rule
Mexico does not usually participate in World Wars. This escalation between Russia and the Ukraine will impact Mexico about as much as the war in Afghanistan or any war in the middle east has done. aka zip, nada.

... and yes I was referring to the WWIII portion, not the potential that Russia will invade at some level.

Okay. I read/hear the same news you do. I am curious how you have translated that into there will be WWIII and begun wondering how life here in Mexico will be affected. That is a very long leap. I am guessing you are accessing other sources that I am not. It is those sources igniting your fear and anxiety.

Maybe not such a long leap with the US sending thousands of troops to Germany, fighter jets to Poland and war ships to Australia. How many countries must be involved to make it a WW. Some have said China is just waiting until the Olympics is over and Russia and China have been pretty cozy. Portugal just suffered a large scale cyber attack and hasn't recovered yet. Could that have been a trial run?

I can see that you have not been reading or listening to the complicated details of what is going on, why, and what it means. Of course “anything could happen.” However, those with the most information are looking at it from several directions and considering all possibilities. The least likely one by far is the scenario causing you so much worry. But it is a scenario designed to generate as much fear and panic as possible, adding to the on-going chaos. I am sorry you fell victim to it.

China is just waiting for the Olympics are over.... to do what?
Russia and China has been pretty cozy... in relationship to what?
Portugal suffered a large scale cyber attack..... and this relates to what?

One can make up things out of thin air but that does not mean that it has any validity. This is what conspiracy theory is all about. Make up stuff, try and tie them together with "what if's" or "I wonder...", and say it over an over and over. Sooner or later a lot of folks who aren't really informed about reality will begin to believe. Sigh.

Russia and Ukraine are a long wasy from Mexico so probably little involvement with Mexico. A regional affair.
