Abstract:

What are the Latin American reactions to the United States involvement in Latin American affairs Are such reactions expressed in a supportive, indifferent, hostile, or cooperative attitude Throughout its history, the United States has been involved constantly in Latin American affairs. These involvements range from economic assistance to direct military intervention, including the use of American troops. Each time the United States gets involved, the Latin American countries express their views and observations based on the nature of the event. To demonstrate such reaction and determine if a trend of Latin American opinion towards the United States has been established, it is best to examine several incidents in which the United States has directly intervened in Latin American affairs. This analysis of historical events will answer the questions posed above. Such examination will be the basis for a comparison of Latin American responses to several examples of United States intervention in Latin America. Keywords Cuban missile crisis, Military intervention, Dominican Republic.
