Latin America Comparison to America

The Non-Industrialized lands of Latin America In comparison to The Americas would begin to feel threatened by North America and there enormous power. America would not see it self as such, but once they start taking over other countries in Latin America they are considered in my opinion an imperialistic empire.   

Monroe Doctrine

The Monroe Doctrine would be issued in 1823 to avoid any "entangling alliance" with Britain, declaring the American Continents no longer subjects of future imperialistic acts  or "colonization as they would call it", of the America's.

U.S Expansion Into Latin American Lands

Resulting from wars in Mexico, specifically in 1848, America gained very scarcely populated lands of northern Mexico, which encompasses all parts of present day California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, & Colorado.

Interference's of The Untied States  

The United state by the 1900's had invested into Latin America, thus they wanted no interference but themselves in the western hemisphere thus they created the Roosevelt Corollary which was another form of Imperialistic tactic against Latin America.  

US Needs Panama

The United States needed Panama as a resource to build the Panama Canal, however Panama was owned by Columbia who did not wish to give it up, so in turn America liberated the people to stand up against there government, just so that they could take over them and build the Canal. America see's themselves as helping but throughout all this they are still taking land through imperialistic action's along the west.

You had plenty of pictures, although you could have made them smaller. Also, the font? C'mon Isaac. You're better than serif fonts.
