The Roosevelt Corollary

Storyboard Text

  • Now that we have the canal, we need something that will protect it and our regions of interest.
  • Yes, go talk to the President.
  • Agreed, I will come up with a policy to do just that.
  • Flashback to 1902. Germany and Great Britain threatened to invade Venezuela in order to collect debt.
  • They owe us a lot of money, if they don't give it to us we will invade.
  • The US will now oversee the collection of all debts the Latin American countries owe to European Nations.
  • I call it my "Big Stick" policy. No European Nation shall come near our territories.
  • "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far." If negotiations don't work then the US military will use force.
