U.S. and Latin America

Question 1: The Platt Amendment and the Roosevelt Corollary created tensions between
the United States and Latin America. Based on what you know about both, why might Latin
Americans take offense to both the Platt Amendment and the Roosevelt Corollary.
Question 2: While Woodrow Wilson sometimes ignored his “Moral Diplomacy” initiatives,
they were in stark contrast to Roosevelt’s “Big Stick” and Taft’s “Dollar Diplomacy” views
toward Latin American interventions. Compare and Contrast the differences between
Wilson’s and his two predecessors’ views.
