Monroe Doctrine and the War of 1812
Transcript of Monroe Doctrine and the War of 1812
After the war was over, Madison continued his presidency until 1822 when James Monroe became the next president. In 1823, James Monroe was President of the United State. During his annual address to Congress on December 23rd, Monroe announced the American Foreign Policy, which later became known as "The Monroe Doctrine". In his address, Monroe stated that the European powers could no longer colonize the Americas, as they were already occupied. And that they would treat any invasive European Government as a direct threat. Also he stated that the United States would stay out of European affairs. The Americans formed a double standard here, one they held the Europeans too but did not hold themselves to. In 1823, on December 2nd James Monroe gave his annual address to Congress. His speech was written by John Adams and dealt with foreign policies. Later it was to become known as the Monroe Doctrine. The Monroe Doctrine stated that Europe could no longer attempt to colonize the Americas, or enforce any of their systems of government on the Americas. Any attempt to do either of these things would be viewed as hostile. Furthermore, it stated that the United States would stay out of European affairs. Theodore Roosevelt first broke the Monroe Doctrine in 1904 to allow himself the right to intervene in conflicts between the Latin American countries and European countries, with the exercise of military power to dispel the Europeans from the Americas. The Truman Doctrine was another addition to the Monroe Doctrine stating that the United States could send equipment/ forces to any nations under threat of communism, including Iran, Greece and Turkey. George W. Bush also manipulated the Monroe Doctrine, he changed the foreign policy so that the United States could take action against terrorism by using preemptive war against the potential aggressors. The Monroe Doctrine, while not immediately effective paved a path for foreign policy that was later used by Presidents to do what was necessary to protect the United States and its interests. Even if these actions were contradictory to the original doctrine and were invasive of other countries.
