Monroe Doctrine

The Monroe doctrine was a warning to all European powers not to interfere with any western affairs. The U.S felt like it was their responsibility to take care of western hemisphere affairs.  The Monroe doctrine also stated that the U.S would not attempt to take any European colonies in the Caribbean or southern hemisphere, but Europe would have to stay out of all Latin American affairs. In 1821 Russia claimed the Oregon country as its own America did not have the power at this time really to do anything about it, but England that had been making extremely profitable trade with Latin America and the U.S at this time. England still being a world power backed the Monroe Doctrine. All other European countries having more respect for England rather than America backed off all their claims and colonies in the New World (including Russia’s claims to the Oregon territory).    As some examples of all of this America in 1865 exerted diplomatic and military pressure in support of the Mexican President Juarez who lead a successful rebellion against their French leader, who was placed on the Mexican throne by the French. America was further involved in further western policies such as Haiti, Nicaragua and Santa damigo which all took place 40 years later under president Theodore Roosevelt.
