I do not know, your majesty. But I shall alert our militia right away.
Why haven't we invaded those puny countries in South America yet?! They will be so easy to take over!
United States, 1823
We need to protect those developing countries. I'll issue a statement right away.
There we go, now I'll go announce this to my citizens.
The ruler of Britain realizes that the tiny, developing countries down in South America are too weak to defend themselves from an invasion, Making them prime for take-over.
The Monroe DoctrineIf any countries attempt to take over the developing countries in the area of South America the U.S. will attack said country with full force.-James Monroe
The U.S. president, James Monroe, realizes this as well, and since those countries trade with the U.S., he decides that he needs to defend them from Britain's rule.
Back in Britain
Sir we've just heard that the U.S. is defending those countries that we are planning to take over.
James Monroe writes the Monroe Doctrine, a statement to the rest of the world that the nobody should mess with the developing countries in the Americas, or else to U.S. would go after them.
No problem, now trade with us.
The Monroe Doctrine declared that the U.S. will aid the developing countries in South America because the countries materials benefit the U.S.
Britain receives word of the Monroe Doctrine and now has a problem with the "easy" task that would be taking over those South American countries.
The developing countries were very thankful for the U.S.'s actions and would continue to support them economically.
We're safe! Thank you!
