Gunboat Diplomacy

26/4/19 Gunboat Diplomacy

In international politics, gunboat diplomacy refers to the pursuit of foreign policy objectives with the aid of conspicuous displays of military power.

It is the ostentatious display of military power to coerce another country into action which is favored by the displaying country.

The greatest American proponent of this technique was President Theodore Roosevelt who advocated the carrying of a big stick as a warning to other nations.
