The United States History webpage (n.d.) explained that President Monroe’s lengthy speech has laid deeply hidden the four basic principles which was said to be the foundation of the Monroe Doctrine: The US government’s non-intervention policy at that time was clearly stated in the four basic principles but historically, it could be seen that, indirectly, US has been trying to stop other emerging powers from gaining foothold in American territories like when it warned Russia who was then showing signs of colonizing Alaska or when Great Britain showed interest in Hawaii.
The doctrine strengthened US prominence as a world super power and a warning to European nations that the Americas is not for present nor future colonization.
The Monroe Doctrine can be considered as the United States first major declaration to the world as a fairly new nation.
The Monroe Doctrine was a statement of United States policy on the activity and rights of powers in the Western Hemisphere during the early to mid 1800? It was expressed during President Monroe's seventh annual message to Congress on December 2nd 1823.

The Monroe Doctrine stated that the free American continents are not to be subject to future colonization by European powers.
