The Roosevelt Corollary is like an agreement
saying that the Western Hemisphere is off limited to Europe. Roosevelt’s words
were “speak softly, but carry a big stick.” But in return the United States
would not get involved with European affairs but the United States had the right
to step in with its neighbors but only if nations handled their affairs with
my opinion the Navy was more influential the United States started taking
control over the water, they started putting ships throughout the waters.
And traveling by water was much faster than by horse, so the Navy could
get to places faster and safer.
