In August 1914, when WWI erupted, many Latin American countries and the US remained neutral.
This war is worrying me....
I don't want us to get in the middle of such a conflict. It would be devastating for us.
THE GERMANS BOMBED A BRITISH SHIP?!
Yes, and there is no telling what they're going to do now...
Germans used submarines for heinous causes and disrupted many trade systems in America and Europe alike...
Oh no! Our goods and gold!
Time to destroy... hehehehe
Additionally, a growing possibility that the Panama Canal was going to be bombed influenced the US in their decision.
PRESIDENT! WE MUST GO TO WAR! THE GERMANS ARE SLOWING DOWN OUR TRADE USING THEIR SUBMARINES!!
We MUST declare war...
The US's decision to declare war on Germany also influenced many countries to follow suit.
I think it's a great idea for us to also declare war, like the US did, and those godforsaken German submarines are getting on my nerves, that has to stop NOW!
I also think it's a great idea... Let's do it!
Most of the Latin American countries who decided to engage in the conflict declared war on 1917.
TO THE AMERICAS!
