Hi i have a question...
Which of the following did not involve relations between the United States and Cuba?
a) Ostend Manifesto
b) Platt Amendment
c) the U.S.S. Maine
d) missile crisis, 1962
e) Roosevelt Corollary
Didn't all of these involve relations between the United States and Cuba? The Roosevelt Corollary didn't directly involve Cuba though...so do you think that is the answer? If someone could help me out that would be great! thank you.
The Roosevelt Corollary was used as justification for the 1906 intervention in Cuba.
All had to do with Cuba in some way, but the sinking of the USS Maine probably involved relations more with Spain than Cuba, at least from the US viewpoint. The Cubans probably had another viewpoint.
i would say the USS Maine because it had to do with Spanish Relations
What is the Ostend Manifesto?!
Ok thank you everyone! I think it is the UUS Maine now! You're right it involved Spain more. And the Ostend Manifesto I was a secret document written in 1854 by U.S. diplomats at Ostend, Belgium, describing a plan to acquire Cuba from Spain. Thanks so much everyone! :)
i think that it is the roosevelt corollary because it says "did not involve" and although it involved spain more, it still involved cuba
