Big Stick Diplomacy... when? what? sig?
what: "speak softly, but carry a big stick"... meaning speak softly-- be diplomatic.... but if you do not do what we want the US will use its army
sig: this created the Platt Ammendment. This says the US has the right to intervene in Cuba if:
- - another power attempted to take Cuba over
- - Cuba was having economic problems
OTHER SIG = platt ammendment allowed US to take over cuba given the circumstances... however under TELLER AMMENDMENT US could not take over Cuba at all
