answers All right well the u s has a long

00:22

history of saying more than just howdy to our friends

00:25

down south let's See which of the following pledge the

00:27

big old stop sign to our meddling in latin america

00:30

did a the truman doctrine promising into military intervention in

00:34

latin american affairs Well not quite The truman doctrine contained

00:37

a whole bunch of promises to contain the spread of

00:40

communism And while truman's i was mostly fixed on troubles

00:43

across the atlantic there were certainly concerns with communism's influencing

00:47

lands much closer to home We're talking to you cuba

00:50

So it isn't a was be dollar diplomacy The end

00:53

of the latin american intervention wrote well dollar diplomacy was

00:56

the financial brainchild of president taft We'll put less of

00:59

an emphasis on military intervention in favor of encouraging american

01:03

investment in latin america but even though dollars were flowing

01:06

in americans still held a more explosive charge as an

01:09

option of last resort Good latin american intervention have ended

01:13

with sea The monroe doctrine well that's where it all

01:15

began you know Faced with the threat of european intervention

01:19

in latin america president monroe told those stuffy old world

01:23

guys that they weren't hip enough to jive with the

01:25

new world We have come up that that we're hip

01:27

right Really look at us We're totally hip What about

01:29

d The roosevelt corollary to roosevelt corollary was teddy roosevelt's

01:33

one up on the monroe doctrine He not only told

01:36

european countries to stay that out but if they did

01:39

try and come in the united states would use their

01:42

military might teo show him who's Right So if these

01:45

finger was just hovering on the detonator that means e

01:48

the good neighbor policy promised no further military intervention in

01:52

latin american affairs The good neighbor in this case it's

01:54

president franklin roosevelt who promised to kick our pesky habit

01:58

of military intervention in the region Yeah it was to

02:00

encourage us investment opportunities by earning latin america's trust and

02:04

later to keep latin american countries on our side during

02:07

world war two So is the correct answer today We

02:10

should probably refer to this as the not so good

02:12

neighbor policy since the us ended up overseeing and facilitating

02:16

overthrows of elected governments and meddling in civil conflicts during

02:20

the forty years following world war two But hey all's

02:23

fair in love and war and latin american policy right
