Which European country supported the US the most during the time of the Monroe Doctrine?

Practically speaking, Britain did. George Canning had originally proposed that Britain and the US should jointly guarantee the former Spanish colonies against reconquest, but Monroe (or rather John Quincy Adams, his Sec of state) preferred to go it alone. Indeed, without British support, or at least acquiescence, the Doctrine would have been unenforceable in those early days.

Who wrote the Monroe doctrine?

ok first of all the answer is in the question it was james monroe lol this was by bunnyluver2433

^ I wouldn't trust anyone named bunny "luver". James Monroe did not write the Monroe Doctrine, he adopted it.

Not a fact. It is asserted by others that James Monroe authored the Doctrine, while accepting the input from cabinet members. Harlow Giles Unger, author of The Last Founding Fatherargues "The assertion that Adams is the author of the Monroe Doctrine is not only untrue, it borders ludicrous implying that Monroe was little more than a puppet manipulated by another's hand". John Quincy Adams is given credit for influencing Monroe's opinion though.

How might Europe have responded to the Monroe Doctrine if the US was not friends with Great Britain?

Definition of Monroe Doctrine
Just to be clear, the Monroe Doctrine was a statement made by US President James Monroe in 1823 that effectively stated several things: (1) that new attempts by European nations to create new colonies or re-colonize newly independent states in the New World would be viewed negatively by the US, (2) that the US would intervene in any such conflict, and (3) that the European nations were free to maintain current colonies and internal affairs without the US meddling with those.

Most European countries laughed at the US for proposing this because the US had no means of effectively fighting against them. It was Britain's support for the Monroe Doctrine that made the Doctrine more-or-less followed.

Concerning Friendship

The cordial relations between the US and UK in 1823 had no bearing on Europe's response to the Monroe Doctrine. The US and UK would only truly become "friends" in the later 19th century after the US Civil War. However, the Monroe Doctrine is often see as a precursor to the "US-UK Special-Relationship" which was well-established in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Since "friendship" did not really exist between the US and UK in 1823, the presence or lack of friendship was IRRELEVANT in determining Europe's leaders' responses to the Monroe Doctrine.

Actual Reason for Success
What Britain did that made the Monroe Doctrine successful was their Foreign Secretary George Canning's statements that the British Navy would enforce and defend the Americas from European intervention along the lines stated in the Monroe Doctrine. Because Britain was the most powerful country in the world, as opposed to the US, which was relatively weak, the British approval was critical and lead to the Europeans acquiescing to the terms of the Monroe Doctrine.

If Britain had not supported the Monroe Doctrine (or actively opposed it), it would have been a worthless speech. European Powers that had recently lost colonies in the New World, like Spain and Portugal, would likely have attempted to reclaim those territories. Other European Powers would try to conquer recently independent countries, like France actually did when Napoleon III decided to invade Mexico in 1861 because the US Civil War prevented direct US intervention to protect Mexico. Others would want to extend their current colonies, such as Russia had tried in the Ukase in 1821.

What did the Monroe Doctrine state and why was it a bold move for the US?

The Monroe Doctrine was not as bold of a US foreign policy move as it may seem to have been. This is because Monroe had the support of Great Britain who wanted to keep its colonial Canada and holdings in the West Indies intact. Thus the US and Great Britain were "partners" in the policy of the Monroe Doctrine.

Why was the monroe doctrine proclaimed?

The Monroe Doctrine proclaimed that any European attempts to colonize any country in North or South America would be seen as an act of aggression. America wanted to avoid any conflicts in their part of the world. The Monroe Doctrine was created by President James Monroe to prevent European countries from colonizing land in North or South America. The Monroe Doctrine was enacted in 1823.

The Monroe Doctrine came about because the U.S. and Britain were concerned about the possibility of colonial expansion by Europeans in America. Circumstances involved the Europeans. Monroe declared that they weren't allowed to colonize land anywhere located on the western hemisphere. if they did, the Americas would take it as a threat and defend against the Europeans. They also weren't allowed to colonize any land under foreign control. Which the Europeans took this Doctrine as a laughable matter and thought that the US wouldn't be strong or powerful enough to actually enforce this. The Europeans were doubtful because of all the failed attempts the US has made before especially in the War of 1812. Latin America was also doubtful and ignored the Monroe Doctrine. The doctrine served as a warning towards the Europeans to end further colonization in the western hemisphere and to stay out of Latin America.

How was the monroe doctrine important to the us after the civil war?

The Monroe Doctrine after the US Civil War had two main applications. The first one was immediately after the US Civil War, when the US justified its assistance to Mexico to resist the French invasion, which had begun in 1861. The second one was far more extensive. After the US Civil War, the US began a policy of directly intervening in Latin American countries in order to organize and lead them. This would come to a head in the 20th century when the US fought a number of wars, financed numerous militias, and financed a number of coups d'etat in Latin America.
