The Monroe Doctrine

What was the Monroe Doctrine?

The Monroe Doctrine stated that European nations should not intervene in countries to the south of the U.S.

The Monroe Doctrine (actually written by John Quincy Adams), declared in December of 1823, was a superlative U.S. foreign policy statement. It was precipitated by various independence movements in South America and the U.S. government's desire to discourage European nations from colonizing the Americas, and a growing American nationalism. The doctrine claimed that the Americas ". . .are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers." However, the American failures throughout the War of 1812 made the doctrine laughable to Europeans.

In the early 1900's, the Monroe Doctrine proved it's power. President Theodore Roosevelt aggressively enforced it during the Venezuela Border Dispute and in securing the independence of Cuba from abusive Spanish rule.

To sum it up in a short version, the Monroe Doctrine stated that the United States would defend the Freedom of other nations.

Why did Britain support the Monroe Doctrine?

Even though British and US interests were at odds many times in the 19th century, Britain did support the Monroe Doctrine. In about 1820 the only colonial empire that could rival Britain's was that of Spain. Britain did not want Spain to reconquer its empire in the Americas, which had recently become independent. As a result, Britain supported the Monroe Doctrine in order to prevent this possible Spanish territorial reconquest.

The Monroe Doctrine was written by James Monroe, former president of the United States. He wrote the Monroe Doctrine after Latin America fought for their independence.

Why did James Monroe issue the Monroe doctrine?

President Monroe passed the Monroe Doctrine because he was afraid of too much European involvement in Middle and South America. The US feared new involvement of European powers in the Americas -- first of France after Napoleon's victories, then of the Allied powers after Napoleon's defeat who had sworn to uphold, if necessary, by force, the power of monarchs wherever it was threatened. The Monroe doctrine expressly excluded the already existing involvement of Europe's colonial powers, but it drew the line there: every new 'colonial' effort or any armed intervention to change or forcibly retain the status quo would be actively resisted by the USA.

To make sure that European countries don't succeed in colonizing the independent countries of America.

The Monroe Doctrine stated that the European powers need to stay out of the United States, and were not allowed to Colonize in the United States territory. If the Europeans would attempt to do such, then the United States would take action.

The Americas were no longer open to European colonization.

President Monroe's speech set the stage for the U.S. to take side with other new countries in the Americas. It led to the U.S. taking on a role as the protector of the newly independent American countries.

It was a proclamation declaring that the US would take action against any nation who tried to make land on North American their own.

The Monroe Doctrine is a U.S. doctrine which, on December 2, 1823, proclaimed that European powers were to no longer colonize or interfere with the affairs of the newly independent nations of the Americas

The Monroe Doctrine was named after the President that delivered the message to Congress in 1823, but the Doctrine was the brain child of Secretary of State John Quincy Adams. Basically, the Doctrine warned that the United States was no longer to be considered an area open to European influence or colonization. The US promised not to interfere in the affairs of Europe and Europe would respect that fact that the Western Hemisphere was closed to colonization and influence by any other power than the US.

Two developments convinced Adams that such a Doctrine was necessary. First, the expanded Russian exploration and fur trapping south of Alaska, which had been Russian territory since 1741. The Russians built Fort Ross close to Spanish San Francisco and the Czar in 1821 ordered foreign ships to stay 100 miles clear of Russian-American shores.

The second, yet more important problem Adams saw, was the chance that Austria and France would send troops to the Western Hemisphere to help Spain regain her lost colonies in South America.

Adams realized that the US could not enforce the provision of the Monroe Doctrine but Great Britain had previously proposed that the two nations issue a similar proclamation closing the western hemisphere to future colonization. It was in England's economic interest that the new Latin nations be allowed to trade with other nations, namely England. While this US "show of force" annoyed the British, Adams realized that the British Navy would help the US uphold the Doctrine.
He had asked France russia Austria and Prussia the Quadruple alliance help its fight against revolutionary forces in South America...
The message that Monroe doctrine did send to the world was that Britain should keep out of Latin America.
