Is Pancho Villa an American hero?

Answer 1: Pancho Villa was a Mexican Revolutionary General and hero to his people. Since his raid on Columbus in 1916, Villa was neither friend nor hero to the US. Answer 2: Yes. Pancho Villa is known world wide, and treated like a hero everywhere. He is most commonly known in the United States as a hero by United States Citizens (Americans). It might be really awkward that Pancho Villa murdered Americans, and still, Americans now days love him and treat him like a hero.

He also rebelled against evil people in Mexico and always protected Mexico from American attacks.
