did j. Monroe actually threaten the european powers with the monroe doctrine? please help. need answer before school. thank you so much.

  • AP US History -

    I think "threaten" is not accurate.

    "In December 1823, in a message to Congress, Monroe set forth the following principles, which would later become known as the Monroe Doctrine:

    "The Western Hemisphere was no longer open for colonization
    "The political system of the Americas was different from Europe
    "The United States would regard any interference in Western hemispheric affairs as a threat to its security
    "The United States would refrain from participation in European wars and would not disturb existing colonies in the Western Hemisphere"
