Was there ever a risk of the US going to war against any additional European countries in the Western Hemisphere?

It might be a stretch, but the U.S. could have gone to war with Mexico in 1916 or 1917. In addition to Pancho Villa, the Germans were hoping to get Mexico to enter the war against the U.S.

Was this war resolved by mediation?
The overall conflict was resolved by the Webster-Ashburton Treaty. I don't know that there was ever a formal resolution between Maine and the British Empire--I think that Maine was simply whipped back into line because only the federal congress has the constitutional right to declare war. It was a bloodless conflict, with the only casualty being a bear at the so-called "Battle of Houlton".
