Monroe Doctrine

The Monroe Doctrine is the US policy that paved the way for US imperialism in the Western hemisphere.

Two hundred years since its inception and despite claims of the doctrine’s expiration, US intervention and imperialism is still running rampant. If it does not interfere in some country in Latin America it is not because of change in policy, it is probably because of its diminishing power. Two centuries ago, the US president announced the country’s resistance against European colonization and effectively made the United States an occupier and colonizing country itself.
