Correct Answer Number: 3
Explanation: President Theodore Roosevelt in his Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine, in which he reaffirmed a commitment to non-intervention by Europe, but added that active intervention in Latin America by the United States was perfectly acceptable, began an era of active US intervention in Latin America. The encouragement of a Panamanian Revolution, the construction of the Panama Canal, the Nicaraguan banking intervention and other events, highlight the active role the US was to take in the internal affairs of Latin American nations.
