How did us foreign policy between 1890 and 1919 change from previous policy directions?
John Foster Dulles believed that communism was evil. He found it impossible to consider the Soviet Union anything but an enemy of the democratic beliefs of the United States. He did not believe a nation could be neutral in the Cold War. One must be for democracy and the ideals of the US Constitution…, or support communism. Dulles divided the world into "us" and "them." You were either a supporter of the US foreign policy ideals, or an enemy of the US. Dulles believed the US should use such agencies as the CIA to ensure a pro-US government in nations. An example was seen in 1953 when the US helped the Shah of Iran overthrow a government disliked by the US. Dulles advocated a policy of brinkmanship--taking the US to the brink of war in our relations with communism and the USSR in particular. (MORE)

The US was never completely isolated from the rest of the world. Trade made the US an active member of world affairs. It was during the period of the 1890s that the US foreign policy became influenced by imperialism. During that decade, the US became the most important industrial power in the world.… That meant we had to find markets and areas to obtain raw materials. Business was also looking at other areas in the world as potential customers for our products. The US military, especially the Navy, was growing and expanding in other areas of the world where we had not had the ability to go in force before. The war with Spain and the presidency of T. Roosevelt also made the US a major economic, military, and imperialistic power. (MORE)

In 1918, World War I ended and in 1941, World War II began. In between the time was the Roaring 20s era (a time of economic boom) and the Great Depression (quite the opposite). During this time, the US looked inward to focus economic growth (during the 20s) and smooth out the depression with the New… Deal (in the 30s). The US adopted an "isolationist" policy in which they pretty much ignored (for the most part) foreign affairs. They didn't not want to nor did they need to get involved in world politics and warfare until 1941. You know what happened afterward. there was no economic boom at all. when the war ended unemployment jumped to over 11%. farming dropped off because there was no more foreign demand for American agriculture. America always had said that they wouldn't get into foreign affairs but as history shows they always have. (MORE)

In other words, we are here and we reserve the first right to the areas around our existing ter…ritory. Native Americans were not included or considered in this unilateral decision. Since Native Americans did not understand the concept of land ownership or the concept of title or entitlement, and since they were also effectively considered savages by the religious segment the new country, they were without recourse, effectively denied the right to claim the land they lived on as their own. This is how the United States came to be after British control was overthrown. (MORE)

President Truman believed the US needed more than a "get tough on the Russians" policy following the war. Russia's history was one of expansion as much as possible and the Soviet Union was following that same idea. Because of the desire of the Soviets to expand westward, and the fact that Stalin had… a pathological mistrust of the US, it would be impossible to come to a peaceful settlement with the Soviets. Thus, the policy of containment, developed by George F. Kennan of the State Department, was adopted by the Truman administration. The policy would allow communism where it already existed, but would use all force necessary to prevent any further expansion. In other words, communism would be "contained" where it presently existed. (MORE)

The correct answer is: The USA declared themselves to be neutral and they maintained that policy until Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. (MORE)

There were three major powers during the cold war. Any one of these three Countries were nuclear capable of destroying the other. The threat of world dominance from Russia was the primary concern of most Americans basically because of their military and nuclear capabilities. When Nixon became friend…ly with China, Russia had to deal with the possibilities of dealing with China should Russia attack the US. No one entity was capable of taking on the other two, somewhat of a good stalemate. Even though everyone knew that any nuclear battle would pretty much destroy the planet, there was always that possibility. This alignment with China also made it difficult for all countries to widen their territories as many Countries had done in the past, including these same three. Obviously it did not stop some invasions such as the USSR into Afghanistan however even these types of moves were much more difficult knowing you may now become the property of the other two! (MORE)
Isolationism was a policy practiced by the US primarily in the late 1800's and early 1900's. It is essentially the idea that the US would be stronger if it stayed out of the affairs of other countries. This is why it took so long for the US to join both world wars.
What we the American people have been conditioned to believe are the "main goals" of our aggressive foreign policy, are in fact being diminished here and abroad as a direct RESULT of our foreign policy (freedom, democracy, human rights protection). Since WWII, our foreign policy has been about "conv…erting raw material into war material" supporting the "war effort", as we've built up a huge extremist regime and war economy rather than a peaceful economy, an over $900 billion empire at expense of our nations peace, freedom, economy and well being as a whole. Today, USA ranks #88 in Global peace due to its spending in that direction and perpetual war cycle. we are self destructing, while cutting budgets across our school districts and other more beneficial areas to REALLY propel our nation further. Our media is owned by war profiteers, so it is purposely twisted to make us believe in all those "threats" out there, false flag panic attacks. In reality the main goals of US foreign policy have been built around not meeting our energy "demands" to fuel our too fast growth of technology much in wrong direction, so we attack oil rich land, also money that goes into military contracts, arms. We need to turn our investments to clean energy and stop trying to be the world dominating empire, think critically and ahead of how to get OUT of this self-destructive war mode. Our era of hegemony is over if we know what is best for us. It is turning USA into a military dictatorship and further away from any civilian led democracy by the day.
